Only by teaming up with sheriff’s detective Kendall Stark can Birdy hope to even the odds in a deadly game. It’s a fateful decision the killer wants them to make. And it’s the only way Birdy and Kendall can find their way to a murderer who’s ready to kill again . . .

The Girl in the Woods???????
I enjoyed this book but lost track of all the players! Way too involved in the storyline! I realize that a good mystery needs a cast of characters but this one had so many I forgot about the girl in the woods! A lot of twists and turns.... hard to tell the score without a scorecard! I learned a little about forensic medicine... always a plus when a book read for pleasure can provide a little new information too!
You’ve got to be kidding me! I hope that there isn’t a city, large or small, that has a detective and pathologist like Kendal and Birdy. The story was poorly written and the two main characters bumbled around until the author threw something together at the end.
Hello mysterious thriller!
Great read. Engaging, unexpected and a page turner for certain. I ignored many life responsibilities to make sure I make it to the end. Purchasing the next book in the series right away!
