But when all is said and done, you have to applaud Nora for creating a world that people care so much about and continuing to give us stories in that world. I look forward to the next entry in the series and hope to see more of the cast of characters that make this so special. One thing I have thought as the series has gone along is now that Eve and Roarke have faced their worst demons, what's next? Maybe it should be who is next, since Nora has created such a rich cast to pick from.
Deputy from the south working on the case was a good addition. Wouldn't mind seeing him again in the future.
Messups by command with the FBI weren't explained. Those that messed up weren't reamed by Tibble, Whitney or Dallas. Just kind of mentioned as a side bar.
I will continue to read the series but this wasn't the best of the series. It falls in the bottom 10 of the 41 book series for me.
It was bogged down with the process and procedures of hunting down spree killers. The errors of dismissing small details were focused on in this book. A detail that became ironic when the editor missed that Detective Peabody is referred to as Officer Peabody at the residence of the victim's mother's home, among others. Overall it was okay but not the type of book that makes you want to read it again. Much of the book I found boring and the scenes with the killers were sadistic but even they weren't what I would call interesting. I would have like to have heard more about some other characters like Trueheart during this book through his POV.
Love: I love the cast of characters in the series. I don't think my read would be complete without Baxter, Carmichael, Trueheart and the gang. With the introduction of the Arkansas Deputy, I am really hoping he becomes a fixture but I probably won't get my wish. Of course who doesn't love Summerset, even though I would really like him to have some bigger parts again.
Did Not Love: I've written before there are times the plot tends to get stale and while the story was great, I'm waiting for something explosive to happen that will shake up the storylines. Nora has already said Eva will not get pregnant so that's out but every book has the same basic plot: killer kills and Eve catches the case when she either comes back from vacation, when she's on vacation or at an event. Enter gang, Eve gets a gut feeling, she gets into a fight with some perp/criminal/punk, she dreams about the victim, she has fantastic sex with Roarke, they solve the case and go team.
Again, I love this series, I own them all and I will probably continue to own them all as long as they are written. I would just like to see SOMETHING unexpected happen that changes the dynamic of the book. Even if it's temporary.
