First things first – I am not a fan of this cover. I don’t feel it represents the actual story at all. I put off reading this because of that cheap looking cover alone. How terrible is that? Very, but I know I’m a cover snob.
Second, the story turned out to be much darker than I expected. I’m not complaining because I enjoyed it. It was a slow paced psychological thriller with a lot of twists and turns. This had the feel of a Jennifer Lynn Barnes series, “The Naturals” meets “The Silence of the Lambs”. I liked the idea of young people working with the FBI to profile and help catch bad people that I want more books like this.
The only complaint I can come up with is that I would have liked more character development. We were given a decent background on all of the characters but I don’t feel they truly had an arc. They felt as if they stayed the same throughout the entire story, which was a letdown.
If you’re looking for an edge of your seat thriller, this is the book for you. Do not let that cover fool you, this was a great read.
