Detective Mason Callahan was looking forward to his fishing trip with the guys, until his boss ends up dead, right next to their remote cabin. Now all he wants is to catch the sadist who was brutual and smart enough to kill a cop.

With more bodies of cops piling up, FBI knew they had a tough road ahead. Special Agent Ava McLane knows she has to catch the guy as soon as possible, especially considering her fiance Mason just might be in danger.


What a brilliant thriller; from start to the finish there was not a single moment when the book let up on the angle of thrill and suspense. The plotnis well thoughout and reflects in the way the story has been written. The characters rich and strong, with a personality that makes them endearing.

The narrative style easy and free flowing and gives room for the characters to grow and also helps in unraveling of the story. The right use of dark and disturbing imageires combined with the right amount of suspense and thrill, helps in making this book enticig and exciting.

Despite the simple title, I did not like the cover image. According to me, it failed to effectively convey the suspense that was depicted in the decsription.

My opinion: Loved the book. Loved the characters. Hated the cover. But I will definitely come back for Book 5 in the future.

My rating: 4 out of 5
