“She stood in front of the mirror somewhat shocked at her appearance. She wore little make-up, so her pallor was hardly surprising , but her straight blond hair had grown so long that it now passed her shoulders. And her generally fine, even strong (and some, kindly, even say “attractive”), features were more prominent than ever. Her high cheek bones seemed sharper and shadowed, as if about to puncture her ever-pale skin. Her chin and jawline, always strong, looked taut and stretched. Yes, she’d lost weight, but there were now grey-ish bags under her, according to Jerome, “startlingly unusual and arresting” blue eyes. Bags that belied tension, worry, as well as her usual battle with sleep. Jerome was always pestering her about buying clothes that showed off her figure, he’d even offered to go shopping with her, but calling attention to her body would just make people stare at her more than they already did, when her goal was total invisibility. Thus the grey or brown suits buttoned high, her skirt just below her knees. And, now that she was officially a private investigator (someone pinch me), her gender and youth were already obstacles to her being taken seriously (which is why she’d recently taken to wearing glasses; to draw attention away from her “unusually vivid eyes”, and to make her appear more “scholarly”. She wanted to look nice for Marc (what he saw in her baffled her completely, and thrilled her to the core). But, with his dark, smoldering good looks, intelligence, success and his effortless charisma, he could be with any woman he fancied. But, THIS woman? The woman staring back at her right now? Suddenly, she tried out a smile, revealing her perfect, bright white teeth (thanks, mother), but managed only to look somewhat unhinged. Oh, well. Enough! Time to pin up her hair, button her top button, and get back to work!”
But, this book. The fourth in what I hope, reservations aside, will be a continuing series, is WONDERFUL! Great plot. Emily manages to get only one person killed and her best friend abducted, and the story is truly involving! Fascinating. You’ll love reading it. BUT… as is often the case with this author, the book doesn’t end, it just… stops. Dead in its tracks. You turn the page in excited anticipation and… “Author’s Note” No more book. Thus, leaving SO MANY unanswered questions. SPOILERS: Again, the serial killer is serial killerS. But, how does Cobb react, and DO, now that Emily, his unlikely pursuer with whom he has become OBSESSED, has killed his accomplice? Bag of tricks suddenly empty?I think not. And what about the TRIAL that the ENTIRE BOOK has been LEADING UP TO? NOTHING? I was DYING to see what EVERYONE would do on the stand! What tricks would be pulled? How gullible/harsh/compassionate would the JUDGE and JURY be? Would Cobb “stack” the jury? Would Angela and Erica (?) survive? Where’s the RESULT? Grrrrr… A terrific book that suddenly goes off the rails, forgetting why WE’RE ALL HERE! WHY, WHY, WHY? Did the author simply run out of steam? Did his partner call out “Dinner’s ready”?
I. Just. Don’t. Get. It.
I took issue with one premise: that of a family home sitting vacant for close to a year still having its power connected. Didn't make sense to me, but then I'm frugal. Other than that, I was hooked on this novel.
Bridget tells a story of coercion, phone calls and text messages leading her into a conspiracy to kill, promises and threats if she doesn’t. A man, Cobb sent videos to Bridget’s phone of Angela being stalked and promises to kill big sis if Bridget doesn’t go along with the murder plot. The only problem is that there are no texts, no record of phone calls, no videos on the teen’s phone. Is she lying? Hallucinating? Same with Rick’s phone. Nothing there.
Emily, who is now a licensed private investigator, believes Bridget and begins doing what she does best, trying to find the elusive Cobb. Then she gets threatening phone calls, but when she goes to the police, there is nothing on her phone either.
Malcolm is a writer of great talent. He certainly has a way of building tension and keeping the reader walking the edge. His characters are true to life, and he gives nothing away, so that when you finally learn who Cobb is, you don’t get to say “I knew it all along.”
Because you won’t know until he tells you!
