Description

FBI BAU Special Agent Lily Dawn, half Dutch, half Hispanic, raised in the Caribbean, knows the isles like the back of her hand. When a surge in serial killers in the region prods the FBI to assemble a task force, Lily is the natural choice. But Lily is reluctant to face the demons of her past, including her missing sister, and when a new serial killer strikes, leaving a string of victims tied to buoys, Lily knows she is heading right into the darkness.
 
“The plot has many twists and turns, but it is the ending, which I did not see coming at all, that totally defines this book as one of the most riveting that I have read in years.”

    If you want to read a generic and predictable murder mystery, this is your book.

    Couldn’t put down the book from page one. When a book grabs you and will not let go you just read it till the end. This always takes a great author, a great plot and characters you can relate too. I loved it! Will buy the next one and keep reading. What a great way to end a day!

    I almost always finish a book once I start but this one did not hold my interest at all. I hoped it would get better but halfway through, decided it was getting worse, not better. Too many frivolous details and not enough details of the crimes and investigation.

    I kept reading although it was difficult to. Hoped it might get better. The writing and phrasing was sub par, and there were many misspellings that an editor would have corrected. I’ll pass on her other books.
  • SO intriguing!

    A good read, but it seems like the authors are all given a certain plot to write about. A lot of stories I have read where they had a younger sister disappear and that is why they go into FBI work. All have no closure. Do they get an assignment at a course they take or have the same publisher? Looking for answers to the publishing business.
