Told from the male antagonist's point of view the narrative incorporated his reflections on events that occurred ten years previously as well as the current state of play...the characters were believable but at times I felt the interactions between them were slightly stilted and unrealistic particularly between the male characters who spent a lot of time threatening each other or conversely bromancing; this was a shame because in fact the group of guys have really interesting back stories and I can easily see how they can be incorporated into future instalments in the series..
The two main characters were great together and their sexual chemistry suitably steamy but they frustrated me for two reasons firstly because they were frequently vocal about their romantic feelings for each other and it didn't seem genuine.. and secondly they seemed to pick the most inappropriate moments to get down and dirty...I felt like saying ok I get it you love each other and the sex is great but now is not the time for this ...there is a serial killer to catch...
I thought this was an engrossing and somewhat unnerving thriller and although there were flaws in the characterisation I loved the group of investigators and friends that has been developed and I am looking forward to reading more about them in future books in this series....This book was reviewed for Summer's Eve Reads...
Several years later, a murder that's a serial to the first, pulls Dawson back into the investigation and to his home town. The killer stays just steps ahead of Dawson and his team at every turn and more people continue to die. After a stroke of genius, and a bit of luck, Dawson catches a break, and narrows his hunt. The ending came as a total surprise!
Most detective books I read, I can decipher the ending as well as twists along the way. This was not the case with Author, Allie Redman's Double Take. I was on the edge of my seat and even held my breath at times. Each revelation, was a surprise. She did a fantastic job with the storyline of this book!
On top of the masterful mystery, there is a bit of romance between a few characters and even some insta-love. Some romantic scenes, and some graphic details of those are also peppered throughout.
I'll mention situations that may be triggering: graphic portrayals of violence and sexual violence, murders with gore and description of blood at the scene, terrorizing messages and abuse, and torture.
I read an ARC copy of this book and found some errors and a few issues in timing and content. After contacting the author, I was advised there had been further editing and another copy of the book had been released. While I have not read that copy, I am hopeful it only makes this book better than it was.
I enjoyed this book--from finding myself holding my breath to reading faster and faster to catch a killer! Allie Redman was a new author for me but I am looking forward to reading more of her work!
Flash forward ten years when a middle of the night call brings Dawson back to the small town he left behind to chase a killer . . . It seems, however, that the serial killer has upped his game this round and has targeted those Dawson loves.
While back in his home town, Dawson begins to realize just how much he has been missing the past decade. Friends and family rally around him to beat the killer at his own game before he strikes again. Dawson also reconnects with an old high school crush . . . quickly realizing that there is more to life than he has been living.
If you are a fan of serial killer / thriller / suspense, this is a great story line that will keep you guessing until the very end of the book. Watching Dawson and his team track the killer is a great mind game. It was also enjoyable watching Dawson grow emotionally when he realizes there is more to life that his sister’s murder case. That being said, I feel the need to add that this book needs a good dose of editing. There are a lot of issues with incorrect word usage, tense and grammar. I found it distracting as it pulled me out of what is an interesting plot.
