continues to impress readers with his strong writing Detective Lukas Miller of the Johnson City Police Department is in the middle of a trying investigation, as the body of a prostitute is found late one night More troubling than the fresh body is that Miller is being forced to work alongside Detective Brooke Stevens of the Kingsport PD, a surrounding community where bodies have also been appearing While they work out the kinks, Miller and Stevens try to stay one step ahead of this killer, as they seek a motive and determine how the pattern will progress In a case that leaves little downtime, both detectives are forced to juggle personal lives that are quite involved and can sometimes prove distracting As a potential suspect emerges, Miller and Stevens race to get answers, only to have him found dead of an apparent overdose Could the killer be taunting the police in this intense game of cat and mouse It would seem that the killer has found weaknesses both detectives possess, thereby affixing crosshairs for maximum devastation Forced to scramble to save those they love, Miller and Stevens learn the value of teamwork and swift responses, but will it be enough Pratt does a wonderful job laying the groundwork for what could be a great series, with fresh and insightful characters Recommended to those who have enjoyed much of Pratt s past work, as well as readers who like detective novels read in short order.I stumbled across Scott Pratt years ago when he was a few novel into his first series I thoroughly enjoy the way he crafts his plot lines and develops characters who are both likeable and full of humour, while not afraid to tackle disturbing issues In this series debut, strong characters are essential to keep the reader intrigued Lukas Miller shows himself to be a determined detective who wants nothing than to succeed at his job while trying to see where things are headed with his girlfriend, Gaby Their relationship seems on again off again, depending how the wind blows, which proves difficult for Miller to digest, particularly as he has little down time as it is Brooke Stevens is also work centred, with her role as an instructor to cadets when she is not solving cases Her divorce is still fresh, as is the balance between violent work and being a mother to a little girl Stevens seeks happiness, though she has little time to ponder the nuances of daily life, with a plate already overflowing Together, they make a strong team and the attentive reader will see that Pratt should have a great timer developing their characters in the years to come The balance of the characters that appear work to propel the story forward without getting in the way The reader will notice a few minor characters who may return in coming novels, particularly if the police procedural theme remains The story is strong, fuelling an interesting backstory that may have led to the killer s need to exterminate their victims Set in Tennessee, as many of Pratt s works tend to be, the reader will learn a little about the region while also being treated to a well written narrative and decent dialogue that promotes reading the book in a few sittings I can see great potential with this book and look forward to novels in the series.Kudos, Mr Pratt, for another great novel I am happy to see that you keep publishing such high caliber pieces time and again.Like hate

of his books less than a stellar five stars, but I have to say I was a bit disappointed with this newest series I believe this is the first installment in the series, but I m hoping the story picks up I found it to be very boring the first half So much so, I ended up skipping some sections because I found the writing to be overkill and lots of filler I can t believe I m even saying this about an author I respect so much The characters, Lukas I m a huge Scott Pratt fan and haven t given any of his books less than a stellar five stars, but I have to say I was a bit disappointed with this newest

found the writing to be overkill and lots of filler I can t believe I m even saying this about an author I respect so much The characters, Lukas Miller and Brooke Stevens, are very likable, as they are trying to learn each other since being paired as partners As they navigate their caseload and getting to know one another, dead prostitutes are popping up everywhere And when one in particular lends itself to the cesspool, unfortunately for Miller, he has a personal connection to her It wasn t as if he and Brooke were dragging their feet on the case, because that wasn t the case, but it appeared as though they were at a standstill with lackluster leads and uncooperative officials The upper brass was literally breathing down their necks and threatening them at every turn, and no matter how hard they worked to solve this case, it just seemed like they were never getting there.That is, until a huge break comes their way shedding some light on where they should go I really disliked their chief because he was just an ass He treated Miller and Stevens like they were idiots and couldn t handle their jobs They were doing the very best they could, but he had no time for their slow speed Of course, the Mayor and other officials were in his behind about the mass murders and, as we all know, crap rolls downhill, but it still frustrated me as much as it did them.Again, I m not sure what to say about this story It didn t start heating up for me until about 70% of the story, and that was almost the end I believe Pratt wrote this story with another author and knowing Pratt the way I do, I could sense the parts he wrote, which were the sections that held my interest He just has a way of making action come alive on the page I don t know, it really bothers me that I didn t like this book, but I always keep it real when I read, so for me, this one just didn t quite do it for me But I will say this, I m going to give the series a chance I ll read the second one and if I feel the same way as I did with this first one, then I will leave it alone Here s hoping and crossing my fingers flag Like see review Dec 01, 2018 Judith Mantell rated it it was amazing

casting I could not help but think that if the serial killer in this book had gotten help and had a complete physical as a child, including a SPECT scan of his brain, so many lives might have been saved But this isn t the medical normyet It is amazing that as police officers following evidence, mental health professionals, profilers, and even investigative reporters we manage to track and find serial killers as well as we do I wonder if SPECT scans of numero brains of these people would discover a commonality of the area of the brain that is damaged and allow them to have the help they need before they become killers In this book Miller and Stevens are tracking a horrific killer This person is intelligent, has no police record, is gainfully employed and ahead of them every step of the way Each of the major players in this novel are dealing with their own issues and obsessive need to succeed I once hear a very famous psychiatrist open his seminar with the statement, Someday I am going to cure myself and get out of this business The 200 or so of us in the audience laughed, knowing exactly what he meant This novel is like that Both officers and the killer are trying to cure themselves, each choosing a different path, each obsessed in their own way How these lives interact and affect each other has been skillfully woven into the story It is a good book and you can read it on many levels and enjoy it as a who dunnit, or at the profound and very human level of their individual struggles What I also enjoyed was the courage and support of the police chiefs, who cared about their officers and enabled them to do their jobs without being ham stung by politics and bureaucracy Good book Enjoy flag Like see review Jan 22, 2019 Nenette rated it really liked it A great read
