When a book by one of your favorite writers lands on your Kindle, you have two options. You can jump on it straight away or you can wait a bit longer knowing you still have something to look forward to.
So I showed I could resist the book calling my name and finally the time had come. 🙂
As soon as I open this book, the roof may fall on my head, I don’t think I would notice. I am not reading about Black Rock Falls. I am in Black Rock Falls. I don’t read about Jenna and her team. No, I am working with them trying to find the culprit and trying to save the victims.
The townspeople must be very happy I am not part of the team, because I would have arrested the wrong person. I had another suspect in mind, but on the other hand I can proudly say I had figured out where the victims were hidden. Jenna said she had a budget for more deputies so maybe I should apply LOL.
The killer had quite a history, but they should have known better if they wanted to keep on killing. Once you start targeting people from Jenna’s town, your hours are counted…
The author adds another thrilling book to this amazing series. 5 stars
