Description

Two women have gone missing in two weeks: the first, found dead, was slashed and dumped in a back alley in Boston. The second was discovered by a child in a Swan Boat Ride. As fear intensifies, Hunter, the head of the FBI Behavioral Unit, calls his star criminal profiler, Tracy Wrenn, to help on the case. Even though she had plans to become engaged that evening, Tracy quickly cancels her plans and rushes to Boston to help. 

A beautiful, young professor of criminal psychology, Tracy has become renowned for her success at cracking cases no one else can. With her unusual insights and unique point of view, she is relentless at probing the inner minds of murderers. When a third woman goes missing, and when Tracy finds herself in danger, everything intensifies. In a shocking turn of events, Tracy finds out more not only about the killer, but about herself--and learns that nothing is what is seems.

Book #2 in The Killing Game is also now available!

Reviews

  • The plot was good but the grammar....

    By Joying B
    The story drew me in quickly, but the grammar mistakes were hard to get past. The author mixes up character names and some of the sentences don’t make sense. It’s as if no one proof read before publishing. A mistake here or there is ok, I get it the author is human, but it happens constantly through out the book. In the end, the mistakes made it very frustrating to read.
  • Darn good book!

    Good enough that I coughed up $$ for the next one. Generally, I stick with free books, 99cent books, or books from the library. Weird character twist that I didn't expect!

    This was a very good reader. I liked the way it kept the suspense going up to the end and the way it kept my interest all the way through.
  • Repetition makes a hard read

    Just finished chapter 3. Overuse of character's first name and repetition--"important" was used over a dozen times already--make it difficult to stay focused on the story.

    This book had all the makings of a great read. The plot, characters etc... all had potential. There were even times when it did get exciting. It was hard to fully grasp the characters personalities. (I understand the killers) It seemed scattered at times. The grammar and misspellings were irritating.
  • Needs proofreading

    Good read. However, not sure anyone took a second of their time to proofread before printing.. characters names were messed up. Grammar was off the entire book. And one paragraph was printed three times in a row.
  • Interesting but hard to get through

    OMG! What everyone said. Mixed up names, grammatical errors, typos... Not to mention over use of the same words and phrases. The book reads like an observation report. It over explains things, insulting the intelligence of the reader. I feel this is insecurity on the writer's part, being too afraid her meaning would not get across. The idea is a good one. The delivery needs work. I have wanted to walk away many times, but I'm a sucker for starting a story and needing to know the ending. I've watched many a terrible movies this way. The author can definitely benefit from getting a better editor. Someone who can give the same feedback as what the other reviewers are saying.

    This book could use some proofreading, but wonderful characters, depth and plot - without too much violence.
  • Mediocre at best

    By Zephyr Texans
    This book is full of double punctuation, double words, missing words, and random extra letters in a sentence among other typographical errors. Additionally, the main character is completely unbelievable. An FBI profiler who discusses the case and asks advice from a total stranger and pursuing potential suspects without back up? Just not impressed at all.

    Awful! Don't waste your time. Tremendous typos and poorly written.
