Goodreads:  They know exactly when he’ll strike… They just have to find him first.

In all their years working for the Baywood police department, detectives A.L. McKittridge and Rena Morgan have never seen anything like it. Four women dead in forty days, each killed ten days apart. With nothing connecting the victims and very little evidence, the clock is already counting down to when the next body drops. A.L. and Rena will have to act fast if they’re going to find the killer’s next victim before he does.

But identifying the killer’s next likely target is only half the battle. With pressure pushing in from all sides, a promising breakthrough leads the detectives to Tess Lyons, a woman whose past trauma has left her too damaged to appreciate the danger she’s in. Unwilling to let another woman die, A.L. and Rena will put everything on the line to keep Tess safe and end the killer’s deadly spree once and for all—before time runs out again.

Kritters Thoughts:  The first in a mystery/thriller series which must do two things, one set the stage for the series in introducing place and characters and two must have a mystery of itself.  I think this book did a good job of both.  

There are two main detectives in this series.  AL McKittridge and Rena Morgan.  These two have worked together for a bit and know each other's quirks and can call each other out.  In this first book the reader gets to know them and their home lives that will at times interrupt the mystery that they are trying to solve.  

In this book, the case is self contained as in it is presented and solved within this one book.  These detectives find a fourth victim killed within forty days and from the beginning it is an obvious pattern and they are hoping to break it and prevent another victim.  

I always judge a mystery on the person who ends up being the guilty party and if the clues were perfectly crafted to finally point to them and I felt like the author did a great job in this one where I didn't find out early, but right on time!

I am excited to continue this series and learn more about these detectives and keep solving cases!

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
