This was an excellent book. I was not able to put the book down no matter how hard I tried. I was irritated when family members wanted to talk with me while I was reading this book. It was a fast read and it really grabbed your attention right from the get go.
This book reminded me of “Criminal Minds” when I read it. Nadia was Penelope, Zach was Reid, and I was really hoping that Brandon was Derek, Jack was Hotch, and Paige was either JJ or Prentiss. At least that is what was in my head each time the characters were talking. The book brought me right to an episode of “Criminal Minds”.
Now you will see that this book is book 6 in a series. When I was approached to review this book I was a bit nervous about reviewing a book so far in a series that I have not read thus far. But, I decided to throw caution to the wind and give it a try anyways. Well, I am happy to report that I am glad that I did so. It does not matter if you have not read the previous 5 books in the series or not. I was able to pick up the book and still understand what was going on. I do however, believe that there is a backstory going on that if I had read the previous 5 books I would of understood a bit more of the characters history together and some of the backstory of what was going on with them.
I feel the author did a very good job of keeping the story going along, there were no parts that really slowed down and made you want the book to be over and done with. Her writing on police procedures was excellent. Her research on Mayan history was rather well written. You can tell that she cares about what she is writing and wants to make sure that what she has written is as truthful as can be.
She keeps you on your seat wondering what is coming around the next page, keeping you engaged as much as possible. It is very disturbing thinking that someone in the real world could do what is possibly written in the book. Makes you stop and think for a bit.
If you like a page turner, that will keep your attention and might get you into some trouble with some family members than this is the book for you.
