About:

The closer she comes to the truth, the deadlier her chase gets.

FBI behavioral analyst Alex Donovan and her colleague Logan Hart have been called upon to write a profile for a missing woman, but a little digging quickly turns up more disappearances in Virginia with the same physical description.

Alex is in a race against the clock to rescue the missing victims, so when the UNSUB makes demands of her in exchange for information, Alex takes the bait. But when her life is put in jeopardy, Logan must do whatever it takes to track them down before time runs out.

Alex works to think one step ahead of the suspect, but the more Logan and the BAU learn about the serial kidnapper, the more they fear Alex may not make it out alive.

My thoughts:

This was a very interesting last book in this series (at least I’m assuming it’s the last book). Nancy did a great job keeping the reader guessing about who is behind these kidnappings, sort of. I mean, we know who is doing it but the men we meet will make you wonder which one is which and who can we trust.

I enjoyed the story but I don’t agree with Nancy’s theology. I think at least two times she has her characters say that it isn’t God’s will for them to be sick. This is a prosperity gospel mind set. I agree that when God originally created the earth and humans that wasn’t his will but because of sin the Word is clear that we will experience trails. If this isn’t God’s will then he isn’t completely in control but I believe God is sovereign and nothing happens outside of His will. I used to believe the way Nancy does but it lead me to a very bad place with God and I found myself demanding he answer my prayers the way I want and if he didn’t then he wasn’t that good. Yikes, not a good place.

Anyway, I did like the story, it was very engaging and I couldn’t wait to see how it would end.
