Publisher's Summary

How far will he go to have his revenge?

When the fingers of dead women start showing up in the Supreme Court’s mail, ex-FBI Agent Jeremy Winter is brought back to the Bureau to aid in the investigation. Agent Maggie Keeley, his girlfriend and now boss, leads the search for the serial killer. Together, Jeremy and Maggie learn the five remaining cities on the murderer’s list, but they have no idea when the killer will strike or whom he will target.

When they stumble upon a clue at the scene of a young woman’s death, the case focuses on an abandoned ramshackle home in sparsely populated west Texas. As the FBI closes in, the ante is upped in ways no one could have imagined, forcing Jeremy to choose between justice and revenge.

Good procedural...

A serial killer moves around the country murdering women and leaving petals from a daisy. In his sick and twisted mind he believes that he’s on a holy mission.
The protagonist, a former FBI agent, Jeremy Winter along with his girlfriend FBI agent Maggie Keeley track him but remain one step behind.
This is a pretty solid story with some nice twists turning this from a job for the agents into something personal. There is also some predictability but again I don’t think this took away from the story.
There is a continuing thread from book one that will continue into the next book. I would suggest listening to this series in order but each can be listened to as a stand alone.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Excellent crazy serial killer novel

I purchased Dead of Winter (a Jeremy Winter series novel when it was released in December of 2019 and set it aside until yesterday. I continue to be impressed by author Tom Threadgill and will listen to Boo0k 3 in the series next.

boring

Couldn't wait for it to be over. This is the second book in this series and was hoping it would be an improvement on the first.....it wasn't. This author is crossed off my list.

Thank?

Overall a good story. The narrator was not so great. Monotone reading at times, not putting emphasis where needed and the way he said “thank” drove me nuts. I guess it’s a soft “th”. and noticeable because he said it at least 100 times.

One liners

Aside from likable characters, even the villain is complex in the way Norman Bates is complex, this is a pretty standard plot: retired government agent gets recalled to help catch/stop evil madman. There’s a beautiful wife/girlfriend/partner/femme fatale who finds herself the target of either the same villain or another. And a child, usually the agent’s, who is in mortal danger can be saved by only our hero. Nah, what I really enjoyed was the injection of humor here and there, running jokes, one liners, made this a very enjoyable listen. Though I did not like the narrator’s style as it was very stilted in the narrative parts, but fine during dialogues.

It Could be better

Why doesn't Jeremy and Maggie stay in the same hotel when they are on assignment together. they dont kiss and dont sleep together but they are in a long term relationship. It is not believable and quite frankly its what the story is missing.

Pretty busy story

These people jump from state to state like we walk across the street. Makes it a bit hard to follow and keep up with the chase.
I listened to this one first and will listen to book 1 next.
Not badly written and the narration is a little flat. Some people can read so well you feel you are right there. He got better toward the end of the story. Not bad, just different.
