Really enjoyed this, which sounds awful considering the content (abduction, torture etc), but Kerley’s books are just so easy to read. I find whenever I start one, I really want to race through it. Which isn’t always possible with 2 kids and a husband (love ye!!!) and housework and so on.
I always think that’s the sign of a good book, when you are thinking about it but don’t have a chance to read it! I always recommend the Carson Ryder series when people ask about a good series.
The blurb from Amazon below:
“Detective Carson Ryder faces a cunning and inventive adversary in this terrifying thriller from the bestselling author of Her Last Scream.
Young men in Miami are being abducted and tortured after their drinks are spiked with a cocktail of drugs that leaves them unable to recall their ordeal. Despite this, Detective Carson Ryder knows the predator’s name, height, age, colouring … everything. It’s impossible for the perpetrator to avoid detection. Yet he does.
When Carson seeks answers from his brother, a wanted criminal intimate with twisted minds, Jeremy’s odd behaviour sparks even more questions. With each abduction, the violence becomes more horrific, and it’s only a short time until torture turns to murder.
But how do you catch an invisible man?”
“A serial-killer targets the country’s most vulnerable women in this new thriller featuring Detective Carson Ryder.
They thought they were safe at last…
Across the US, a secret network of crisis centres permanently relocates women in serious danger from domestic abuse. But now someone is killing them before they reach their destinations.
Detectives Carson Ryder and Harry Nautilus are having trouble gaining the trust of the volunteers who run the scheme. The only way in is for an undercover police officer to pose as a threatened woman, making herself a target and drawing the killer out.
Reinetta Early is the ideal candidate – but she also happens to be Harry’s niece. He always promised his sister that he would keep Reinetta safe from harm. Suddenly he’s unsure if he can even keep her alive…”
This is book 8 in the Carson Ryder series from Jack Kerley, and it doesn’t disappoint! I’ve already mentioned Kerley in an earlier post!

I don’t like going into detail as I don’t like spoilers, but I can honestly say that I found myself flying through the book trying to figure out who the killer was, and when the time came, I wasn’t really expecting it! Kerley has a way of ramping up the tension and then flying through the climax in the last few chapters. With other authors, this annoys me but with him, not so much!
If you’ve never read any of Kerley’s books, I would highly recommend them! I find they really hook me after only a few pages!
I’m off to Amazon to do some shopping 😉
