Goodreads:  An edgy female police detective…An ambitious FBI special agent. 

Together they are at the heart of the ticking-clock investigation for a psychopathic serial killer. The bond they forge in this crucible sets the stage for high-stakes suspense.

Detective Kara Quinn, on leave from the LAPD, is on an early morning jog in her hometown of Liberty Lake when she comes upon the body of a young nurse. The manner of death shows a pattern of highly controlled rage. Meanwhile in DC, FBI special agent Mathias Costa is staffing his newly minted Mobile Response Team. Word reaches Matt that the Liberty Lake murder fits the profile of the compulsive Triple Killer. It will be the first case for the MRT. This time they have a chance to stop this zealous if elusive killer before he strikes again. But only if they can figure out who he is and where he is hiding before he disappears for another three years. The stakes are higher than ever before, because if they fail, one of their own will be next…

Kritters Thoughts:  The first in a new series from Allison Brennan and I knew going into this book that I was already a fan of the author, so I had high expectations and this book met them!

Detective Kara Quinn is on vacation, but even on vacation she gets herself mixed up into a little bit of drama when she jogs across a dead body!  In comes in a mobile FBI team and things got interesting real quick!  Special Agent Mathias Costa is the new lead on this mobile FBI team and they are meant to go a place where the local police may need some extra help when a large case happens in their area.  I loved watching the interaction between the FBI team and the local police and how much it takes for them to successfully work together.  

The case contained in this book was so intriguing.  This may sound weird, but I love a book when you get a few chapters that are told from the killer's perspective.  It seems weird to like it, but it just seems so interesting to see their thought process behind what they are doing.  This one seemed extra and to get inside his mind was so fascinating.  I do tend to roll my eyes when the author alludes to a hard childhood that makes the killer a killer and such was the case in this book, but I was able to gloss over it for a good story.

I can't wait for book two in this series to come.  I am ready to see where this one goes.

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
