Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Title: Watch Her Vanish
Series: Rockwell and Decker #1
Author: Ellery A. Kane
Talk about an edge of your seat page turner – wow, this story certainly is just that! When a serial killer strikes, all the evidence points towards Drake – but he’s already imprisoned for five murders and there’s no way he could get out . . . . is there?
As the prison’s Criminal Psychologist, Olivia Rockwell has Drake as one of her patients and she doesn’t believe he is guilty of these latest murders. However, Detective Will Decker is not so sure. The sparks fly when the two first meet but they need to work together to bring the killer to justice – especially when Olivia’s sister could be the next victim….
This is a fast paced, enthralling read that I didn’t want to put down until I’d discovered just who was the perpetrator. It has well developed characters, plenty of twists and turns, is action packed and has enough red herrings to keep you guessing. It is also the start of a new series and I’m hooked, looking forward to reading more involving this duo and seeing where everything lead.
Thank you to Bookouture and NetGalley for my copy of this book which I have voluntarily read and honestly reviewed.
Fear hits her like a wave crashing against the sheer cliffs nearby. She sees the woman’s feet first, then the legs bent like broken driftwood. Then, the blouse strewn open; the marks on her beautiful neck. Her knees buckle as a hand grabs her elbow to break her fall.
Forced home to Fog Harbor, California, to look after her little sister, Criminal Psychologist Olivia Rockwell is struggling to adjust to life in a town so small she can hardly breathe. Until, at church one morning, the sound of a scream leads her to the body of a missing local teacher in the shallows nearby. All the evidence points to Olivia’s most threatening patient, Drake, who is safely locked up behind bars…
Convinced of Drake’s innocence—and desperate to believe in the system that’s keeping her own murderer father behind bars—Olivia gets to work on her own suspect list. All her life she’s run towards trouble, but this time she’s treading on the toes of brooding and handsome Detective Will Decker.
Then a second woman’s body is discovered, strangled while out on an evening jog. The strip of blue material used to choke her implicates Drake once again, forcing Olivia and Will to admit they are out of their depth and must work together to crack the case.
The deeper they dig, the deadlier the trail becomes. It’s clear more innocent women will die if they don’t get one step ahead. But then a note written on a scrap of paper found in the last victim’s car leads them to a terrifying realization: the killer has his sights on Olivia’s little sister as the next victim…
An addictive and unputdownable crime thriller that will keep you up all night. Perfect for fans of Melinda Leigh, Kendra Elliot and Mary Burton.
