Book Review: On the Trail of the Zodiac

Title: On the Trail of the Zodiac (A Jack Winchester Thriller, Debt Collector #10)

Author: Jon Mills



Two killers – one hunts for justice, the other for fun. Their worlds are about to collide.

In the late 1960s, the Zodiac Killer went on a rampage in California. To this day the case remains unsolved and the killer’s identity is still unknown. Forty-eight years later, after a series of new murders and taunting ciphers uploaded to the internet gain attention, the San Francisco Police believe he’s back.

When an old flame contacts Jack Winchester to inform him that her son is dead, the case becomes personal. As the bodies pile up, and Jack gets close, the psychopath turns the tables to play a deadly game of cat and mouse, where there’s no telling who will survive.

Jack Winchester returns in another unrelenting, fast-moving, action-packed audiobook.

My Review

5/5 Stars

I became a fan of this series after listening to an audiobook copy of the ninth book, so when the option to receive a copy of the tenth book happened, I hopped on it. And I was not disappointed!

This book had everything wonderful about the previous book—action, suspense, drama—but it was blended with the mystery of the Zodiac killer. After Jack’s last journey, he’s in a bit of trouble. He doesn’t expect to come across a killer using the Zodiac’s MO, and he certainly doesn’t expect it to end in a final showdown.

I loved all the detail and research that went into this book. Every part from the Zodiac murders, to the ciphers, to the details of Alcatraz island were very well written which helped to further emerge me into the story. The characters are well-fleshed out, and I was happy to see that Jack Winchester remained his usual a**hole self and emerged the hero.

As with the last book, the narration added to the tension of the story.

Fantastic installment to the series.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
