The character build-up had its slow moments but stick with it as it picks up its pace and flies to an solid end that leaves you wanting more. The author doesn't disappoint at books end as you'll want to read the next book with these characters.

THE 7TH VICTIM by Nancy Churchill is a nail-biting roller coaster of a crime story. Three conflicted sisters – two of them in law enforcement, one trying to recover from terrible trauma – and the men involved with them, become tangled in the crimes and pursuit of a serial killer operating in the Southwest. Villains in the story range from the inept to the truly terrifying.

I very much enjoyed the offbeat settings in the book. Rather than setting the story in Las Vegas or Los Angeles, Ms. Churchill chose more out-lying settings: Bullhead City, Arizona, with its nearby Davis Dam and casinos, the quiet Orange County suburb of Yorba Linda (childhood Quaker home of Richard Nixon), and the island of Catalina. She clearly knows these locales very well and brings them vividly to life. She uses the dam, located about 70 miles south of Hoover Dam on the Colorado River, as a very clever and chilling crime scene.

For its gripping plot and complex characters, I would have given THE 7TH VICTIM five stars. However, it has a cliffhanger ending, which is essentially no ending at all. The story simply stopped, leaving me frustrated. I realize it is the first book in a series, but I felt quite disappointed that the story was incomplete. I would point to Robert B. Parker's "Spenser" series or to J. D. Robb's "In Death" series as fine examples of carrying terrific characters through a very long series of books, but still giving closure to each individual novel. Particularly in a mystery/crime thriller, the case must be solved and wrapped up, or the reader feels cheated. Characters can continue to have unresolved conflicts in their private lives to carry over to the next book, but the case should be closed.

Nevertheless, if the reader is prepared for the cliffhanger, THE 7TH VICTIM can be enjoyed as an entertaining, insightful, and goose bump-filled story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun read! February 1, 2013
By G
Enjoyed reading this book. Chapters are short, making it easier to read a bit at a time. Loved the references to specific places in Bullhead and Laughlin. Author includes just enough details about the murders to paint a picture of the killer, yet satisfying the palate for a little gore. Great surprise ending, but i was definitely disappointed that it ended at all!

Look forward to a sequel.

I enjoyed the book except for El Jefe. I found it hard to believe that he could be so powerful and get away with all that he did.

It just didn't strike me as plausible. Too much inferred and too little for substance. And the author really needs to speak to someone on firearms language. Reads really amateurish.
