5.0 out of 5 stars Riveting thriller
Reviewed in the United States on November 11, 2019
This book grabbed my attention from the first sentence as rookie Detective Bridgette Casseldhorf and her seasoned partner, Detective Lance Hoffman are at a crime scene where the medical examiner is exhuming a rancid, decaying corpse of a young woman from a shallow grave. Detective Hoffman is a crusty “old-school” cop who is three months from retirement.
Several observations by Bridgette lead her to suggest that this killing may be the work of a serial killer. Hoffman immediately dismisses this notion as the fantasies of a young and naïve rookie. But, as Bridgette investigates several similar unsolved cases, she uncovers several links that were common to these unsolved cases. Hoffman and their boss, Chief Inspector Felix Delaney, come around to her way of thinking.
As this plot unfolds, another piece of tragic history is revealed and soon tied to the current investigations. Bridgette’s father was a homicide detective in the same police station 20+ years ago. When Bridgette was 4-years old, her mother was murdered as Bridgette was secluded in a closet in their home. Her father was the prime suspect and, since he fled, assumed to be guilty. As the plot unfolds, it is revealed that Hoffman and Bridgette’s father were close friends, as was Inspector Delaney who was also a detective at the time. Additional links are revealed that I won’t address so as to not provide any spoilers.
As they investigate the serial killings, Bridgette and Hoffman come to realize that they have never seen such a careful killer who is highly skilled at planning and rehearsal of his kidnappings and murders. He has a long string of successful killings and has evaded detection and identification because of the planning, rehearsal and careful execution of his plans. The killer has actually been looking forward to the mental challenge of a highly skilled victim who doesn’t just submit to him without a serious challenge. So, while Bridgette and other policemen lure him into a position to capture him, he likewise lures Bridgette into a trap that threatens to be terminal for her as a victim.
There are a lot of emotional roller-coaster rides in this book. There are unexpected twists and turns, some enjoyable and some not. This is true both in regard to the serial killer and the case of her Bridgette’s murdered mother and missing father. Some aspects of these mysteries are resolved. Other await resolution in the second and/or third books in this new Bridgette Cash Series of which this was book 1. (Bridgette found out that her dad had been using the surname Cash and she decided to change hers.)
The plot is complex and multi-faceted and there is a fairly large cast of characters. Some plot twists were predictable, others not so much. I thought that there were a few things that were not logical but consider them to be fairly minor flaws for a work of fiction. It certainly held my attention from the first page to the last. I highly recommend it and look forward to continuing with the series.

I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review, only an honest one. All thoughts & opinions are entirely my own.
A very awesome book cover, & proper great font & writing style. A very well written whodunnit murder mystery book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a large set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great murder mystery movie, or better yet a mini TV series. There is no doubt in my mind this is a very easy rating of 5 stars.
