This book came as recommendation (to start as a series as apparently the stories prior are not as good) and I can see why. It’s a tight, well planned and well structured thriller/crime story. It commences by following Kimberly through her FBI training programme where she is suddenly thrust into an unresolved serial killer case. Girls are being kidnapped in twos and the death of one has clues to the whereabouts of the other.
It’s a great race against the clock, with often gritty nail biting scenes that twist and turn all the way through. There is also effective use of the perspective of the killer that is so often missed by authors of the genre. Overall clever writing that I haven’t come across since reading Nesbo and am glad to have more installments to stick my teeth into, solid four stars!
It's a good read, and you really root for some of the characters - especially the female ones, particularly Kimberly, Quincy's daughter, going through FBI boot camp, and Tina Krahn, the victim staked out to die - but the plot is too contrived for my taste. Gardner has clearly tried to come up with a variation on the serial killer theme, with the killer leaving all kinds of intentional clues as part of a lethal geographical game with his pursuers. It just didn't fully engage me, I'm afraid: I generally finish crime and thriller novels in a couple of sittings, but I found myself putting this one down more often than usual.
You may like this one as much as some of the other reviewers, so don't let me deter you: just don't expect too much and you won't be disappointed!
This book for me didn't really grip me until a good third of the way through, and up till then I knew better than to throw the towel in early, as Lisa has in the past got me memorised in what may happen.
The main characters of which there were a few all had a strong reason to pursue the killer, and go against FBI protocol, and the relationship between them grows as the book unfolds.
Tina's story had me feeling desperate all the way though to be found, her mind process throughout her hardest hours trapped in that swamp felt as though that's what could happen to a determined person struggling to survive, and through the twists that are in place , I found my heart sink thinking the worst.
A very enjoyable book with a totally different aspect of a serial killer, well worth a read
