Now I am not a big lover of prequels in books or reboots in movies however this time around it was perfect since I hadn't read first seven books. I have already started looking for the first six.
Taylor is my perfect heroine with her hard no nonsense edge yet she is compassionate. In fact, it is her compassion that is really messing with her as she had to kill a fellow officer who was doing his best to kill her. Now she is suffering from nightmares from that night. Regardless, Taylor is back in the saddle and trying to catch a killer.
Baldwin was a hot shot profiler in the FBI until one of his calls caused the death of three of his teammates. Now he is playing a game of Russian Roulette with himself. His boss however believes in Baldwin and calls in some favors to get him assigned to Taylor's team.
This is a book based around the characters which really draws you in as the characters are all easy to emphasize with. The plot itself will hold your interest as is combines murder, madness, grief, anger, friendship and teamwork. Another book that I was forced to read in one sitting as I couldn't bear to sit it aside.
I do highly recommend this book to any of my readers that enjoy thrillers, romantic suspense or police procedural. I an now trying to find the rest of the books in this series.
