Plunging you into the action from the very beginning this book has the feel of a second book in a series, even though it is the first. It took a little longer to get into this one, and I think it was because there was so much going on that I didn't connect with the characters right away.
EMS helicopter pilot Penny Carlton finds her endurance and skills pushed to the max as she and FBI agent Holt Satterfield try to stop a serial killer and clear his sister's name. There is definitely a lot going on in this chilling, action packed read.
This is very possibly the creepiest book I have every read by Lynette Eason. The bad guy is just so disturbing, especially in the way that he treats women and twists Bible verses, and I didn't like being in his head.
Penny is a quick thinking heroine, full of courage, I admired her for making her own way in life and not leaning on who she was related to. Holt is under a lot of pressure, with her personal life as well as the dark cases he has to deal with on a daily basis. I liked them together, but their time together was sporadic.
Overall this was a thrilling start to a new series, there was a lot to like about this book, but there were also parts that weren't to my personal taste. I liked the themes of returning to faith and trusting in God, as well as fighting for the truth. Great for fans of suspenseful reads, who don't mind some darker themes.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
