I love it when a novella does its job in setting up and introducing the continuing story arc for a series and that’s just what happened here. Dr. Rowan DuPont is a profiler with the Nashville Metro Police Department and she’s assigned to work with four detectives to track down a serial killer. It doesn’t take long before it’s clear that she’s the ultimate target as the victims to date all bear a remarkable resemblance to her in every way.
I’ll admit I was able to quickly pinpoint the suspect (I’ve read way too many of these things) but what set this apart is the pace in which the characters were developed and the story moved. And, there were some unexpected outcomes that weren’t at all predictable.
Rowan is indeed the daughter of an undertaker and that presents some very interesting angles. This was an engaging story and I’m very anxious to continue, particularly as there are so many things left to explore, at least out of my imagination. I’ve already hatched a few conspiracy theories that I want to see through! This was delicious.
