Set against the atmospheric backdrop of rural Pacific Northwest, New York Times bestselling author Rebecca Zanetti’s thrilling suspense series follows FBI Special Agent Laurel Snow as she strives to navigate her complicated family life when her newly discovered sociopathic half-sister becomes the target of a dangerous killer. The Blacklist meets The Profiler meets Justified in this fast, page-turning thriller that will have readers guessing until the very end!
What do you do when a sociopath loves you? Rising star FBI profiler Laurel Snow is about to find out …
Calling Laurel Snow’s relationship with her newly discovered half-sister challenging is an understatement. Not only does Laurel suspect Abigail is behind the mysterious disappearance of their father, but her erratic behavior also makes life in Laurel’s small hometown interesting, to say the least. Still, when Abigail claims someone is now out to kill her, Laurel’s instinct to protect her sister goes into overdrive. Then things get even more dicey as dead bodies start turning up in the icy waters of the Sauk River and there’s only one connection among them: Abigail . . .
Having Fish and Wildlife Captain Huck Rivers bringing in those bodies with his dive team only complicates matters. Huck is as impulsive and fiery as Laurel is coolly analytical, which makes their alliance risky at best. But standing up to such a demonically brilliant killer is going to take all the help Laurel can get. Because Laurel’s attempt to save her troubled sister’s life might cost her own . . .
In the previous novel, You Can Run, special FBI agent Laurel Snow returned home and set up a temporary field office to catch a serial killer. She hasn’t packed up yet when the body of a young woman is discovered. She is partially dismembered and flowers are scattered near the scene. So much violence. Snow and Rivers are soon on the case, and her temporary office is looking more permanent.
First, I love Laurel Snow. My guess is she is on the spectrum. She isn’t good with people, but has an incredible mind. For example, if you ask her, she can tell you how many people she saw wearing hats in the past week and how many of those were red. She is methodical and tenacious when catching a killer.
She is slowly building a team and working alongside Rivers, who some might call a hermit. He lives alone and prefers the company of his dog. However, Snow gets under his skin. The two had a one-night stand that ended awkwardly and I loved seeing them address it. We see some development in their relationship and I am enjoying the slow burn, banter, and growth.
The murder-mystery was intense with plenty of suspects and victims. It kept me guessing, felt grounded and had moments of intensity that will get your heart pumping. Fans of suspenseful FBI thrillers with a side of romance and small-town charm will find this series exciting.
The case is wrapped up, and we are left in a good place with our characters. I am looking forward to the next novel. While each book has its own case to solve, I recommend beginning with You Can Run.
