Two women have gone missing in two weeks: the first, found dead, was slashed and dumped in a back alley in Boston. The second was discovered by a child in a Swan Boat Ride. As fear intensifies, Hunter, the head of the FBI Behavioral Unit, calls his star criminal profiler, Tracy Wrenn, to help on the case. Even though she had plans to become engaged that evening, Tracy quickly cancels her plans and rushes to Boston to help.
A beautiful, young professor of criminal psychology, Tracy has become renowned for her success at cracking cases no one else can. With her unusual insights and unique point of view, she is relentless at probing the inner minds of murderers. When a third woman goes missing, and when Tracy finds herself in danger, everything intensifies. In a shocking turn of events, Tracy finds out more not only about the killer, but about herself--and learns that nothing is what is seems.
Book #2 in The Killing Game is also now available!
A Failed Attempt
I picked up this book for two reasons, it was free and the subject matter is appealing. I am a die hard fan of Criminal Minds so the combo of serial killer and BAU got my adrenaline going. Unfortunately, the profiling is more elaborate and detailed in an one hour TV show than it is in this book.
Although the plot is weak, it does have a nice twist at the end. My biggest complaint is that the book seems to be written by a Grade 9 student with very limited vocabulary and practically no skill in character development .
The characters are all as flat as cardboard and their dialogues come right out from a B movie, so cliched and childish that I do not know if I should laugh or cry.
Not worth it
The poor editing killed me. I'm currently reading and have found many mistakes with spelling as well as mixing up characters names! Who edited this novel!!??
Invitation to kill
Extremely bland and very poor editing. There were so many grammar and spelling errors by 100 pages I quit reading it. I wrote more detailed 100 page essays with better writing in grade 7 this is atrocious
