When a serial killer is active in a community, everyone is scared and afraid. So far, this organized killer has claimed two female victims, and displayed both in the same matter to shock and awe the police. Both victims have something in common, they each wore jewelry belonging to Detective Selena Alvarez. That in itself is a message and threat to Selena, because she also knew each victim.
The killer taunts the police force, Selena, her partner and PI Dylan O'Keefe with dark hidden secrets about Selena that no one should even know. Is he someone from her past, or someone she knows now and trusts?
The author created a well written story with a mix of characters and a most vicious serial killer. Highly recommended, and you should read with the lights on.
RJ Parker, True Crime Author
There is some predictability to the series, there is the setting, the cases all seem to crop up at the holidays year after year. There are the issues with Regan's children who as teens whose behavior is similar to so many teens we all know. There are the holiday preparations that occur down at the police station and the odd residents of the town. Some may not enjoy the repetition but then again this is what makes the characters seem so real and like someone from your own neighborhood. I look forward to the next chapter in the Alvarez/Pescoli to Die for series.
As for the killer's devices, they were quite unusual, and gave me the chills to read about, quite literally. But much more time was spent on how crappy the teens behaved. Too bad.
Here's one more thing you need to know about the "To Die" series - Alvarez and Pescoli must be the worst detectives in the history of the world. They go through the entire book continually turning up corpses but never really getting any closer to the killer, that is, until the killer decides to involve one of them. I'm not entirely sure what keeps me coming back, except the stories, character development and writing are pretty decent. At this point in the series, however, both Alvarez and Pescoli are involved with men that they are determined to push away because they are strong and independent and perfectly able to do it themselves, dammit! Pescoli, especially, is annoying as hell at this point. She is involved with smoking hot Nate Santana, who's great in bed, loves her and wants to be a father to her wayward children. Oh, and did I mention he wants to marry her? But no, Pescoli wants to keep failing miserably with her underachieving and disrespectful children to prove she can do it on her own. Oy.
