The murder of eighteen-year-old Angie Vance was exceptionally vile--her mouth was sealed with glue, an obscenity was scrawled across her skin, and she was suffocated in a garbage bag. The killing seems personal, so police detective Carina Kincaid focuses her efforts on the victim's much older ex-boyfriend, Steve Thomas. But without physical evidence, Carina can't make a collar or a case. She also can't stop Sheriff Nick Thomas, the prime suspect's brother, from conducting his own unwelcome investigation. Though Nick is still scarred and unsteady from a recent confrontation with a serial killer, he's determined to prove his brother's innocence. But his confidence is shaken when he learns of Steve's dark side, and when a friend of the murdered girl meets a similarly gruesome fate. With no time to lose, Carina and Nick work together to trap a psychopath, before another unlucky woman faces an unspeakable end.… (mer)

A deranged serial killer is on the loose. The San Diego police team force has an unexpected ally to help them catch the bad guy.
Gripping, chilling descriptions of each crime bring you into the killer's mind. I just couldn't sleep until I read it to the end.
I'm so ready for book #2! ( )

A college girl's body is found on a San Diego beach wrapped in a garbage bag. Homicide Detective Carina Kincaid and her partner are investigating the murder, and their primary suspect is the victim's much older ex-boyfriend, Steve. Sheriff Nick Thomas from Montana comes to San Diego to offer his brother Steve help and support. The murder seems like the work of a serial killer. Nick has experience with this type of killer, since he himself was once held captive by a serial killer. He offers to help the detectives in any way he can, even if his brother turns out to be the guilty party. A mutual respect and attraction builds between Carina and Nick during the course of the investigation, even though they know that once the killer is found, they will return to their separate lives.

Carina and Nick made a great pair. She was a strong and smart heroine who really held her own in difficult situations. Nick (who was previously featured in Allison Brennan's book The Hunt) was a sympathetic and caring hero. He sees himself as a broken man as he continues to struggle with physical and emotional damage from his previous brush with a serial killer. The story was never boring, it moved at a fast pace, and kept me entertained throughout. ( )

3 stars. A pretty scary book. ( )

Started April 13th, 2014.
Ending was like some of her other books, which should have warranted 1 star less, rather predictable and while I did not guess for sure who the killer would be, there where not enough twists for me.
But given the Serial Killer-Theme and some rather explicit and sadistic murder scenes including a look inside the mind of a serial killer (which would be a great idea for a book title, ups, but it is already taken...) I give 5 stars. Romance was ok, and not too long or too sweet, rather adult and grown up, but no kinky-sex-scenes either, both being past that age and know what they want.
What I like most about the books from Allison Brennan I read so far, is that they are not too long, sometimes I get the feeling that an author is paid by the number of pages or words- Dan Browns Inferno could have been 20-30% shorter and a lot better and also thats why I do not read Stephen King.
Highly recommended but may be to sadistic and too disturbing for some readers - although readers of [a:Lisa Gardner|18282|Lisa Gardner|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/authors/1395879573p2/18282.jpg], [a:Tess Gerritsen|18149|Tess Gerritsen|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/authors/1232921887p2/18149.jpg], [a:Mo Hayder|74876|Mo Hayder|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/authors/1327274083p2/74876.jpg] and [a:Karin Slaughter|12504|Karin Slaughter|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/authors/1202439539p2/12504.jpg] should feel right at home.
Honestly I might give this book 4 stars at a different time, so keep that in mind then deciding wether to read this book or not. ( )
