About the Book

All that remains are whispers of the past…
When multiple body parts are recovered from the Little Ogeechee River in
Savannah, Georgia, local law enforcement calls in FBI agent and
profiler Brandon Fisher and his team to investigate. But with the
remains pointing to three separate victims, this isn’t proving to
be an open-and-shut case.
 
With no quick means of identifying the victims, building a profile of this
serial killer is proving more challenging than usual. How is the
killer picking these victims? Why are their limbs being severed and
bodies mutilated? And what is it about them that is triggering this
killer to murder?
 
The questions compound as the body count continues to rise, and when a
torso painted blue and missing its heart is found, the case takes an
even darker turn. But this is only the beginning, and these new leads
draw the FBI into a creepy psychological nightmare. One thing is
clear, though: the killing isn’t going to stop until they figure it
all out. And they are running out of time…
**Can easily be read as a standalone!!**

Review

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.
