18 of 18 people found the following review helpful By Ruth King on 20 Dec 2008
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Reporter Kendall Shaw nearly died at the hands of a serial killer last summer. Since returning to work, she's done her reporting from the safety of the anchor's desk. But when a young woman is found strangled by the James River, Kendall feels compelled to cover the story. She wants to prove that she can handle the tough stories - not only to herself, but also to her demanding boss and former boyfriend, Brett.

Homicide detective Jacob Warrington and his partner Zack Kier have little to go on at the murder scene. The killer left no physical evidence and the only clue they have is a small gold charm engraved with the name `Ruth'.

When more victims are discovered, each with a gold charm of their own, an unsettling pattern emerges. Each victim was killed in the same manner, and they all bear an uncanny resemblance to Kendall Shaw. As Jacob tries to keep Kendall from becoming the next victim, he finds himself fighting a growing attraction to her.

Does the killer have his sights set on Kendall? And could a mystery from her past be the key to solving the crime?

While I enjoyed Dead Ringer, I felt two of the subplots should have been more fully developed. One promising subplot with Kendall's boss Brett saw no real resolution. Another subplot, this time involving Kendall's roommate Nicole and one of her photography clients, was more fleshed out, but it didn't feel believable to me. However, Dead Ringer offered up some great twists, an interesting protagonist, and a terrifying killer. These three elements made it a difficult book to put down.

Have enjoyed Mary Burton books in the past and had sadly forgotten her. Saw this one and remembered her so gave it a go - really enjoyable read. If you have not read any of her books I would certainly recommend them.

Kendall Shaw is a reporter, ruthless and does what it takes to get her story. However, being a survivor of a serial killer and a near death experience her outlook and approach has changed. Jacob Warwick is a homicide detective, linked to Kendall from the serial killer who almost killed her. On opposite sides of the job, they keep falling into each others paths with a mixture of emotions toward the other. Women are dying, a serial killer is on the loose. They bear a striking resemblance to Kendall, is it a coincidence or is Kendall at risk once again and how far will Warwick go to keep her safe?

This is a great crime story, the pace is fast and there are surprises and twists throughout the story. If you have read the previous book you will recognize a few of the characters, I read the previous book last year and I remembered a few things and characters which isn't like me. It is a busy story, lots of different things going on with the characters. Kendall for example is dealing with her boss who is also her ex who has decided maybe they aren't over. Kendall is having nightmares that are becoming more frequent and she can't make head nor tales of it. She has covered many murders yet something about this one is having a profound effect on her.

There is attraction and sexual chemistry between some of the characters, there is some sex within the book although not is reels of graphic content however it is worth noting it is in there. Overall it kept my attention, pulls you in from the prologue and keeps you guessing along the way as to why the killer is doing what he is doing and who is it. 3/5 for me, I would read this author again, she has a good style and engages the reader quickly.
