First Line: Archie doesn’t know for sure that it’s her until that moment.

Detective Archie Sheridan spent years tracking Gretchen Lowell, a brutal serial killer. But in the end, she caught him. And she tortured him and let him go. But why would she let Archie live?! That’s the question that has haunted Archie ever since. But when a new task force is formed because of a new killer on the loose, Archie is called back into duty to lead it. With the local news following this case 24/7 Archie can’t solve the case soon enough. But the question is, will he solve it in time to save himself?

Okay, in all honesty, I have heard a lot of good things from various people in regards to this book. So when it finally arrived in my mailbox via PBS, I was beyond ecstatic. But did it live up to my expectations?! Unfortunately, not really. However, in the end I ended up giving it a high rating because the ending was really a curve ball and was enjoyable. I just had a lot of issues with a few of the characters, mainly Susan and Gretchen. So I’m not sure if I will pick up the next Cain book, “Sweetheart” but I’m glad I read this one at the same time.

  1. I agree wholeheartedly with your review as I felt the same way when I read this. I’ve heard that there is going to be another book with these characters but I don’t know when.
