My Review

4/5 Stars

Jake Roberts is a former homicide detective on vacation with the love of his life. When his friend, Fred, is shot by an active shooter, drawing Jake into action. While he’s distracted, his love is drawn away by a new threat. One who is determined to make Jake his next victim.

Even though this is my first book in this series, I found the writing to be fresh and easy to read. There’s plenty of suspense and drama, but the way it’s written makes it all the more engaging. I found the main characters, Jake in particular, to be easy to relate to, and in turn, easy to cheer on.

Narration by the author gave each character the perfect emotion to make the story more three dimensional and engaging.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

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.
