Publisher's Summary

The young woman’s body is lying with her arms stretched out to each side. Her lips slightly parted. Her face untouched by injury and her hair spread around her head like a fan. A redhead. Just like the others.

When the body of Leann Truitt is found in a secluded cove in Mystery Bay, Detective Megan Carpenter is one of the first on the scene. The victim has telltale marks on her wrists, ankles, and neck where she has been bound. But that’s not all. Next to Leann’s body lies a puzzling clue - an unusual symbol scratched into a rock.

With rookie Deputy Ronnie Marsh under her wing and the investigation underway, Megan starts to receive disturbing messages. Someone knows about her traumatic past. They know what she did.

Determined to stay focused, Megan soon makes a chilling link between Leann’s brutal killing and the unsolved murder cases of two other women - all redheads with the same marks on their bodies, the same symbol carvings found at the crime scenes, and most shockingly, all had been pregnant.

The killer stalks his prey, kidnapping and torturing them in a very exact and methodical pattern. And he is not finished yet.

When the body of another woman is found bearing a striking resemblance to the other victims, Megan must crack the clues fast if she is to catch the twisted soul before they strike again.

Megan might be closing in on the killer, but someone is watching her every move. Can Megan hide the secrets of her past threatening to destroy her future? And can she protect herself and Ronnie before they both find themselves in terrible danger?

Completely blown away!

After the 1st book in this series I was completely into the Megan Carpenter character. So much so that I went back to read a couple of Gregg's earlier books where Megan was introduced as a different character. I think that made this book all the more appealing for me as I LOVE reading series. Megan's character is so believable that you almost feel like you are her while you're reading. The fact that she still has a stalker from her past making her look over her shoulder and now has to deal with a rookie cop that she has to bring with her everywhere added quite a nice twist to the story. I always think I know who the killer is until I get to the very end and Olsen has to put the twist in there. Knowing that there is a serial killer on the loose put you on the edge of your seat as is 2 characters, Megan and Ronnie close in on him. The events at the end will have your heart pounding!!!

Completely forgettable

Not what I was expecting. The performance was just okay but the story was dull and the characters were not well drawn. I didn’t hate it but can’t recommend it at all.

Another great book by Gregg Olsen!

I listen to audio books to prevent myself from falling asleep behind the wheel during my daily commute and once again Gregg Olsen did not let me down! Gregg Olsen is definitely one of my favorite authors (as well as Rachel Abbott!) and I love his series about Detective Megan.
The narrator is great, the storyline suspenseful and at times hilarious as well. Yes you dont want to miss out on this one!

Great twists...

I couldn't stop listening. Great twists, wish it had dealt more with Meghan's past and who her stalker is.
