(I received this book for free as part of Goodreads First Reads giveaways).
(This review may contain spoilers).
I didn’t realise until I got to the end of this book that I’d read another book by this author in the past – The Harrowing. It was good, because I didn’t have any preconceptions going on… and I also didn’t have any feelings of deja vu that I have had when reading books by certain authors in the past.
I found the plot of this book to be a fairly intriguing one, though I was less keen on the switching between past and present tense. I didn’t think that was necessary.
I did quite like Rourke as a character. He was interesting and I liked getting the hints about his past. I also liked seeing him work with the other members of his team… though Epps’ character just made me think of Don from Numb3rs, even though they don’t look anything alike.
I felt the author did a good job of making the woman a more sympathetic character, even given what she’d been doing. I found her to be a really interesting character as well.
It was nice to see law enforcement people working together and there were a few things that surprised me in this book. I felt that other characters were interesting and well-rounded. There were some really hard moments in this book to read as well… a few scenes that really made me think.
I found the book to be really quite well-written, though I’m not sure if there are meant to be paranormal aspects to this book, or if those suggestions were indicative of psychiatric issues. I also found the information about profiling really interesting. I felt that a lot of research had clearly gone into this book.
I would probably be interested in reading the next books in this series at some point in the future. It would be good to see more of the characters and their lives.
