About:

He has a deadly endgame in mind–and he’s already chosen each victim . . . including her.

After putting to rest the most personal case of her career, Alex Donovan is ready to move on and focus on her future at the FBI’s elite Behavioral Analysis Unit. When the BAU cofounder is discovered dead in his hotel room, the FBI is called in to work on the strangest case they’ve ever faced. How do you find a killer who murders his victims from a distance?

When it becomes clear that the killer is targeting agents in Alex’s unit, they are ordered into lockdown, sheltered in the dorms at Quantico. Alex bunks with controversial agent Kaely Quinn, and as they work together, Alex discovers in Kaely the role model she’s never had–despite being warned away.

As Alex questions the type of agent she wants to become, things get personal when the brilliant killer strikes close to home. Now Alex will do anything to find the killer–even at the risk of her own life.

My thoughts:

I always enjoy Nancy’s storylines and characters, they are unique. I love watching how the characters unfold who the UNSUB is. This book actually had me guessing until the criminal was revealed. I wondered about that person but I didn’t think it really was. She did a great job of throwing off the reader and keeping us guessing.

There is a strong faith message but unfortunately it’s not really the gospel message. There really isn’t any mention of sin and out need for a Savior because of sin, but more about how God will make our lives better. He does, and can, but not always in the way we want Him to.

I also hate reading about people’s dreams. I find that so boring because I know it’s a dream. This happened a couple of time in this book and I really just skimmed over it. Nancy and I also disagree on theology as hers comes through very clearly in her book. Not that I don’t think some of the things she is writing about can’t happen but it is rare and not something, I believe, Christians should be chasing after. I as there once and I started chasing the gifts instead of the giver and that put me in a very angry place.

With that being said, it is a very interesting story and I did enjoy the plot.
