From The Back Cover

He has a deadly endgame in mind–and he’s already chosen each victim . . . including her.

After putting to rest the most personal case of her career, Alex Donovan is ready to move on and focus on her future at the FBI’s elite Behavioral Analysis Unit. When the BAU cofounder is discovered dead in his hotel room, the FBI is called in to work on the strangest case they’ve ever faced. How do you find a killer who murders his victims from a distance?

When it becomes clear that the killer is targeting agents in Alex’s unit, they are ordered into lockdown, sheltered in the dorms at Quantico. Alex bunks with controversial agent Kaely Quinn, and as they work together, Alex discovers in Kaely the role model she’s never had–despite being warned away.

As Alex questions the type of agent she wants to become, things get personal when the brilliant killer strikes close to home. Now Alex will do anything to find the killer–even at the risk of her own life.

What Did I Think?

I’ve been waiting to read this book ever since I finished Night Fall (the first book in the series) and I was not disappointed because this one was downright amazing!! It’s the second book in the series, but it can be read as a stand alone; however, I suggest reading Night Fall first because you will understand Alex and Logan more. This book was a bit intense at times and really made you think about what would you do if you were put in such a situation and although there were a few people who were killed, none of their murders were graphically described. A few things that I loved about the book was that we got to see Alex grow in her faith and I loved how her friendship with Kaely helped her to be more confident – both as a person and as a profiler. Oh, did I mention that my favorite character Kaely Quinn from Mind Games, Fire Storm and Dead End (Kaely Quinn, Profiler series) is one of the main characters! I was thrilled to see yet another side of Kaely because normally she is so reckless in her pursuit of justice that she doesn’t care about anyone else; however, in this book she is a part of a team, so she was more responsible and it added another layer to already complex character. Overall, this book was impossible to put down and it’s definitely one of the best Christian suspense books I’ve read this year!! Definitely a must read for anyone who likes a good edge-of-your-seat thriller that has so many twists and turns that it’s almost impossible to guess who the UNSUB (killer) was – I rate it 5 out of 5 stars!

Rating: 5 out of 5.
