I hate to spoil the 5 star streak, but Eye of the Beholder is just average. The plot revolves around Maddie Richards, a police detective investigating a serial killer who "signs" each kill with "I'll get you my pretty". Somehow, the killer is given the moniker "The Beholder".

Unfortunately, the author spends more time describing Maddie's physical assets than on the plot. We're never told what made the killer all of a sudden start killing, why these particular victims were chosen, and the meaning behind the "I'll get you my pretty". Or, perhaps we were and I just skipped past it trying to avoid the miles of meaningless description. The ending is abrupt, as if the author hit a magic word limit and needed to wrap it up quickly.

If you're looking for a good mystery with competent and well-thought-out female main characters in law enforcement, there are much better options that this.
