My Thoughts

Serial Killer lovers unite!  I loved UNSUB, but I loved this one more!  So definitely pick this one up if you enjoyed UNSUB.

Caitlin is back and even more kickbutt than ever!  She was recruited by the FBI (#dreamjob) at the end of the first book and is the best asset they could ask for.  The bodies start piling up almost immediately.  This UNSUB is creepy as all can be dressing all of his victims in a white nightie and posting photos of them around the bodies.  Whoever is doing this is very strategic about when and where they take their next victim.  One lady disappeared in a crowded movie theater hallway, and another when she was stopped at the train tracks.  

It doesn’t take long before Caitlin and her team figure out who the UNSUB is, but they have no proof, just a hunch.  I even started wondering if this person had someone else helping them, because they did not slip up one time while being tracked.  

Oh this book is everything I could have hoped for and MORE!  I loved it!  It had the perfect amount of suspense, creepiness, and even a little romance.  You know she can’t break up with her hottie from the first book! 

All the love for this one!  Now onto book #3!

 Goodreads Synopsis

In this exhilarating thriller inspired by real-life serial killer Ted Bundy, FBI profiler Caitlin Hendrix faces off against a charming, merciless serial killer.

In southern Texas, on Saturday nights, women are disappearing. One vanishes from a movie theater. Another, from her car at a stoplight. A mother is ripped from her home while checking on her baby. Rookie FBI agent Caitlin Hendrix, newly assigned to the FBI’s elite Behavioral Analysis Unit, fears that a serial killer is roaming the dark roads outside Austin.

Caitlin’s unit discovers the first victim’s body in the woods, laid out in a bloodstained white baby-doll nightgown. A second victim in a white nightie lies deeper in the forest’s darkness. Around the bodies, Polaroid photos are stuck in the earth like headstones, picturing other women with their wrists slashed. The women in the woods are not the killer’s first victims, nor are they likely to be his last.

To track the UNSUB, Caitlin must get inside his mind; he is a confident, meticulous killer, capable of charming his victims until their guard is down, snatching them in plain sight. He then plays out a twisted fantasy–turning them into dolls for him to possess, control, and ultimately destroy. Caitlin’s profile leads the FBI to focus on one man: a charismatic, successful professional who easily gains people’s trust. But can they apprehend him before it’s too late? As Saturday night approaches, Caitlin and the FBI enter a desperate game of cat and mouse, racing to capture the cunning predator before he claims his next victim.
