KISS THE GIRLS AND MAKE THEM DIE
Lucy Kincaid has firsthand experience dealing with deadly criminal predators, and she’s fully prepared to share her many talents with the FBI. But when her career plans are derailed, her boyfriend, security expert Sean Rogan, asks for help on his latest private investigation. Using her well-honed cyber-hunting skills, Lucy is soon on the trail of a missing teenage girl with a penchant for disappearing—and a shocking secret life.
FBI Agent Suzanne Madeaux is also tracking someone: a serial killer on the loose in New York City. Dubbed by the press the Cinderella Strangler, he cruises seamy underground sex parties, where drug-fueled women make for easy pickings. As Lucy and Sean’s desperate search collides with the FBI’s hunt, Lucy isn’t about to step aside. Haunted by painful memories of her own harrowing encounters with evil, she’s determined to keep any more innocents from meeting the fate she so narrowly escaped. Delving deep into the twisted psyche of a remorseless killer, Lucy must confront her own fears—even if it means risking a future job with the FBI and future happiness with Sean.
Kiss me, kill me
Good read. Loved the characters
Very good read, latest in a series
My purchase of this book was random, strictly based upon the description, as I knew nothing of the author. The character and plot development were quite good. The story develops at a pace which keeps your interest while enticing you with changes in point of view. The number and personalities of the characters were well-balanced and made for a cohesive story line. I appreciated the fact that the ending wasn't obvious and came as a surprise. This is a true hallmark of a well written novel.
At times I wished for more background on the main characters. I subsequently learned that this novel is the latest in a series so I came to appreciate the delicate balance the author had with enticing new readers while not boring recurring fans. I would've liked to see further scene development in spots, particularly the club scenes. I was also surprised that the main characters, Lucy and Sean, didn't have a few common vices that I would normally associate with their situation.
It would have been nice - and a great selling point - if the author would have provided a history or genealogy of the series. This appears to be the latest in the series of at least three novels, possibly more as this may be a derivative of another series. I'd like a guide in order to read the series in chronological order.
I may purchase other novels; however, I have some heartburn with this publisher, the last of the major houses to support the iPad. My preference is to reward leaders - not laggards or holdouts - and those who care about their customers. Lucy and Sean may have to wait a while.
