Six years ago a young married couple were found brutally stabbed to death in their home in Upstate New York. Local police arrested a suspect who later committed suicide. But what if the police got it wrong?
Ex-FBI profiler Jefferson Winter is drawn into a deadly cat-and-mouse game with a mysterious female psychopath as she sets him a challenge: find out what really happened six years ago.
The clock is ticking and, as Winter is about to find out, the endgame is everything . . .
Well after reading book 2 I couldn't wait to dive right into this, Book 3 in the Jefferson Winter Series.
I have to say I really am enjoying this series, getting to know the character, that I have to say he is pretty damn awesome. James Carol has worked wonders creating this guy and I look forward to reading many more books featuring him.
I had had book one, two and three on my kindle for quite some time, so after promising myself I was going to play catch up with some of the series of books I still had to read, here I am just having finished book 3 and what a book it was. I have to say there is something about these books that once you start them you can't seem to stop until you are right at the very end, and then you just don't want it to finish.
The action in this book starts right from the beginning, and for a short time I really thought Winter was in it up to his neck. He does seem to get himself in some crazy situations.
The Ex FBI Profiler is working a case this time of lady, mmmm maybe wrong word, this time of a woman he has actually witnessed killing someone, and he ends up teamed up with Detective Mendoza, although it seems it's not her choice to work with him.
How will things turn out, and will the good guys catch the bad, well the only way to find out is read the damn book. You'll not regret it.
It's been interesting getting to know Jefferson Winter, bit by bit over these 3 books, and I have enjoyed each one so far.
I certainly wouldn't have any problems recommending this series of books to anyone. And although I feel they certainly could be read as standalones, as usual for me I find it so much better to read books in order. But again this is just my personal thoughts.
‘BROKEN DOLLS has it all. Horrifying evil, a brilliant, conflicted profiler and cracking pace and tension. I read it in what seemed like two trembling gulps.’ (Stephen Fry)
‘Strikingly well-researched and written with a real swagger, it leaves you desperate for more.’ (The Mail)
