Had to read this book in just two sittings. It was very, very good. The author builds the suspense gradually, writing in the past, for the back story, and the present. It takes a lot of skill to make that work and Elizabeth Haynes has it! I especially liked how she started the book with the hideous death of the previous victim and then ties it all in at the end. The book is scary, very scary, and made more so because it feels so REAL. Ms. Haynes is a police intelligence analyst and must have drawn from her real-life experiences in order to write such a winner. I hope she writes more - a lot more - without losing her edge. I highly recommend this book for those of you who, like me, enjoy spine-tingling psychological thrillers.
