Some people think what Kara Bryant does is a gift. Kara thinks it's a curse. Just when she thought she'd put the past behind her, things have an uncanny way of coming back to haunt this ex-FBI agent. Killer Moves features a couple that get a second chance, but only if they survive.
There's a lot of angst in Kara, especially when the past comes knocking in the form of someone she once worked with. Then came startling news along with a man she prayed she'd never see again. Kara is weary and a little unsettled, and though I don't agree with one of the decisions she's made, she's a likable and strong female lead. It can't be easy for her to have a mind connection with a killer. Some would think she's crazy, show her disbelief, but it is what it is. And now a new life is at stake.
Davis Martin loved Kara. But he loved his job more. Or did he? What went down all those years ago? Everyone has a different side to that story. It could hardly have been easy to choose between the person he loved and the call of duty. Is it for protection or selfish reasons? Those are just a few things that the reader learns about Davis, and the past he shared with Kara, in Killer Moves.
The suspense is high, the pacing fast. There's a new killer in town that has everyone on edge, fearing for their lives and their loved ones. Mary Eason skillfully crafts a tale that sends the characters on a wild goose chase to find a serial killer. Everyone's a suspect. No one can really be trusted. This is the type of book you'll want to read during the day, or you might jump at every little sound otherwise. Do I speak from experience? Yes! I read this at night, and was so involved that, even though my stomach was in knots, I needed more. This is a read in one sitting kind of book because the tension gets thicker. Every chapter brings a new lead and new twist. Putting the book away even for a few moments was like torture.
Killer Moves is top notch suspense. It's gritty, emotional, and a wild ride. Get on board and get a copy of this book fast!
