intense, creepy and different murder mystery....highly recommend

Endless details that do not move the story, offer clues to the crimes, or help us understand the characters. The book exhausted me.

This was a solid Lisa Gardner. I'm a big fan of the Kimberly and Mac characters. The mystery was pretty engaging and the action was fast-paced.

Starring Pierce Quincey's daughter, Kimberley. Rainie makes an appearance as well. Although I love the suspense Gardner generates, she is quite gory and graphic!
