About the Book:
Nothing
His blood quickens as he stares at the photographs. Six faces, all guilty--and detectives Regan Pescoli and Selena Alvarez are at the top of his list. One by one, he'll stalk them, then he'll squeeze the trigger, savoring the way each lifeless body crumples to the reddening snow. One down already. And then there were five. . .

Can Prepare You
Sheriff Dan Grayson lies near death after a shooting, and the police department of Grizzly Falls, Montana, is in shock. Alvarez, torn between a new relationship and her loyalty to Grayson, works with Pescoli to whittle down the list of suspects. The deeper they go, the more personal and dangerous the case becomes. Then a prominent judge's body is found and the killer sends a sinister warning to the press: "Who's Next?"

To Face A Killer
Pescoli isn't waiting to find out. Headstrong and eager for justice, she'll track the scant clues on her own if she has to. But her search leads her straight to a monster who has had her in his sights all along. And when hunter meets prey, both must be willing to kill--and ready to die. . .
My Review:
Having been a reader of this series, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. There were so many dynamic spins and twists, I enjoyed the diversity of it all.

I do have to say if you don’t like a lot of story of romance and family drama mixed in with your suspense, then this book is not for you. I personally enjoy that aspect of a book and cannot wait for the next book. Ugh! So much is happening by the end of the book and has me totally hooked. As I said in my review of Afraid to Die, I was introduced to this series with book one as being a new release I received for my birthday. I continually find myself just wanting to continue, but have to wait.

There are several new exciting things in this book regarding the series. First, as readers we get to meet the Grayson family. Learned a lot about their family and relationships. I liked how this gave a whole new perspective on the Sheriff. Can’t wait to learn more.

I also liked the new character Zoller who is a female detective at the Sheriff’s Office. She is being taken under the wing of Pescoli, but immediately I could see she has the same tenacity and drive as Pescoli and Alvarez. A very smart female working in a man’s world.

All in all, this is the best book of the series IMO!
