This was my second book by this author and I have to say that I liked the first one I read a whole lot better. For me, this one kept veering away from the action. I laughed out loud a couple of times while reading this book, which I definitely thought was strange. However, throughout the book, this kept happening (drifting off the subject) into the deep, deep, deep history of the main characters. Things that did not even really help me identify any better with them. I do have to say, however, that Overton was Johnny-on-the-Spot in this book. One sentence, Mike is asking for something, two sentences later, she has the information. I loved the location of this book. I've been there and that did help to enhance my reading pleasure. I also think the profession of DDS (CPS) guides and counselors was an excellent profession to choose for any mystery suspense. A lot of suspects in that instance. My eyes did roll when the police started looking for parents whose children and their lives were changed by these DSS workers. In final, while it was a decent read, the author just seemed to leave the chase too many times, giving me an opportunity to look for distractions proving I wasn't totally into this one. Thanks to Bookouture and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
About This Item
Bobbi caught a glimpse of the car, saw the blood splashed across the front seats, and felt the nausea rise up. It should have been her who was working last night, not Harriet. It should have been her.
When a social worker is brutally murdered, Detectives Mike Nelson and Lena Overton are straight on the scene. But with a long list of potential suspects, can they work out who's next before the killer strikes again?
It's Lake Haven's first murder in eighteen years, and the community is terrified - especially Bobbi, who was not only supposed to be on duty that night, but also has the same long dark hair as Harriet and drives the same blue car. Now Bobbi lives in constant fear that the murderer will be back for her...
When Mike and Lena make a link to a missing-persons case and uncover a wide-spread grudge against social services, they know they're close to uncovering the killer - but can they connect the last few dots and stop him before he takes another victim?
An addictive, page-turning thriller that will keep you guessing to the very end. If you love Robert Dugoni, John Sandford or Karin Slaughter, Next to Die is for you.
