“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 😉
I had a book called The Crucifix Killer by Chris Carter on my Amazon Wish List for a while so when I popped into Easons for a look recently I was surprised to see it there as I hadn’t expected it!
Even better, it was in a buy one get one free deal! So I managed to get four of Chris Carter’s books at a really decent price!
I find that I get wrapped up in authors and decide I have to read as many of their books as possible in order!
Examples of these are –
I’m now onto The Executioner and so far so good! Will definitely be reading all of Chris Carter’s books as soon as possible!
It’s been ages since I’ve posted so I’m going to do a book haul! 🙂
I spend a lot of money on books (why lie?!) but lately when I’m shopping (online) I always seem to end up buying decent quality second hand books instead of brand new copies. I find it great, especially if I find an author I like, as it makes buying more than one of a series much more affordable! Which brings me to my most recent purchases…
Jack Kerley is a name i saw mentioned on goodreads so I figured I’d give his books a shot! The usual premise of a main detective character and a decent plot line with some gruesome murders thrown in will always capture my attention!
So far, I have bought the first 7 books in the Carson Ryder detective series, and I’m currently reading book 3 “The Broken Souls” (UK Title). I find myself finishing one and immediately moving onto the next, which for me, means I’m pretty much hooked!
If you like a fairly decent whodunnit with a few plot twists along the way, then these books are for you! Also, they are easy to read even with a lot of detail!!!
