Publisher's Summary

From the author of the Amazon Top 100 best-selling Kate Reid series, comes the second installment, Law of Five.

"A gripping, psychological mystery" - D. Donovan, Midwest Book Review

The nationwide manhunt for a killer begins and the media quickly dubs him the "Highway Hunter". Bodies left roadside on display with horrific markings; a calling card. But this case is miles away from Katie Reid and her life with Detective Marshall Avery.

That is, until she gets the call from her old friend and reporter Marc Aguilar, who believes that the killer could be coming their way.

With Katie's work at the San Diego Police Department and her recent personal struggles, questions are raised about the future. She resists the urge to consider Marc's request, knowing Marshall will insist that this isn't their fight.

However, when an acquaintance is suspected of a murder all-too-similar to that of the so-called Highway Hunter, a dark shadow is cast upon the city. Now, the investigation is dropped at the doorstep of the SDPD, and so is Katie's friend, FBI Agent Nick Scarborough.

With growing evidence suggesting there could be more than one killer, four lives have already been taken. Who will be number five?

    "Kate Reid"

    I have found a new favorite character in Kate Reid. I need to get to the next book in the series. The ending wasn't what I expected, but it made me want the next book as soon as possible.

    The narration was the best of any I have listened to so far. Lisa Kelly's pacing was perfection. The pauses were exactly what was needed in every case.

    Story
    "Wrapped Up From The Start"

    The story had begun adventurous enough.
    There's a character going along their merry way until boom, a body is located and, later, found to be murdered.

    However, the murder is no so-called "ordinary" murder. Its just one in a series that are taking place. And this killer has somewhat of a specific method to the killing, which includes carving the Roman numeral five into the body.

    I was wrapped up in it from the start.

    Also, the main character is Kate Reid, a young woman working for the authorities, who has apparently gone through a hellish ordeal at a previous point and, it seems, has yet to fully heal and process. As expected, everyone's worried about her, particularly her boyfriend, Detective Marshall Avery. Despite this, she takes an active role in the investigations into the killer's identity.

    Marshall's and Kate's conversation with each other would sometimes grate on my nerves because they just annoyed me sometimes. She's obviously not okay but keeps saying she is and he's always trying to shield her from something. The whole time I'm going "Girl, you're not fine. You're not even close to it. It's okay to admit that to someone you love" and "Dude, I know you want to protect her, but back off a little. I'm getting smothered just listening."

    That being said, I was more into the investigation itself and the twists and turns that came of it than the unfolding drama between these two or even Kate's connection to it. A lot of the time, the latter two factors felt more like filler to me. In all honesty, I can't speak for the others in the series because I haven't read them yet, but I'd venture to say that for much of the book, it could have worked with or without Kate Reid.

    Even so, as their particular section of the story progress, my heart leapt, hurt, did all sorts of things. Mostly hurt. It was just all too real.


    On the murder investigation side, I won't give that away but I'll tell you that no one is who they seem. I thought I figured out the killer and I was so, so wrong.

    In closing, the mysteries of Law of Five are written masterfully well. Robin Mahle builds one heck of suspenseful ride and Lisa Kelly, a narrator which I am new to, is an amazing addition.

    I'll have to be reading and listening to more of Robin Mahle's and also Lisa Kelly's works in the near future.

    "Disappointed!"

    I loved the first book,and was expecting the same with this one. Too Much ordinary talking etc. Mystery and suspense missing from this book.
    I so loved All the Shiny Things
    Narration was good; story was boring!

    "Awful"

    I thought the writing was mediocre, at best, and the narration was awful. Didn't want to waste time and didn't finish.
