About the book:
One cop’s lie has set a killer free.
Four years after serial killer Rudy Cutter was sent away for life, San Francisco homicide inspector Frost Easton uncovers a terrible lie: his closest friend planted false evidence to put Cutter behind bars. When he’s forced to reveal the truth, his sister’s killer is back on the streets.
Desperate to take Cutter down again, the detective finds a new ally in Eden Shay. She wrote a book about Cutter and knows more about him than anyone. And she’s terrified. Because for four years, Cutter has been nursing revenge day after stolen day.
Staying ahead of the game of a killer who’s determined to strike again is not going to be easy. Not when Frost is battling his own demons. Not when the game is becoming so personal. And not when the killer’s next move is unlike anything Frost expected.
My take on it:
I wouldn’t want to be Frost. I wouldn’t want to be neither Eden nor Rudy Cutter because both were downright evil and wicked to kill.
What I would however love is to look Mr. Freeman in the eye and say “that was one hell of a chase! You’ve practically got me to steer clear of 3:42 am!”
I did not look forward to any psychological twists when I requested to read this book off NetGalley.
- I was intrigued by the title, the blurb and I was looking forward to taking a break from all the romance and poetry I’d been soaking up.
- This book offers an uncanny pace because where I expected Frost to use his detection skills and hunt Rudy Cutter for the sick serial killer he was, Frost took time to reflect on his sister’s life and murder.
- Frost’s actions went against the grain of my expectations and this made reading this book such a thrill.
If you’re looking for a psychological thriller laced with some action and a good detective on the hunt, then this would be right up your alley.
I’m going with a four star review because the ending left me wanting more and knowing for sure that Tabby and Frost have unfinished business and I’d love to know how he’ll work his way through that one.
