I really enjoyed this book. I also liked the pace and the plot. I loved that I didn’t know who the killer was until the end and it was a surprise. I choked up at times I liked how the killer tied the predators death to their crimes. I think there were too many POV’s in this book one of the few things I didn’t like in this book. There really wasn’t romance but lust in this but that was ok. I loved the twists and turns of this book. This book has: serial killers, rape, child molesters, corrupt officials, FBI, and sp much more. This was pretty dark at times but with this type of story it fit. I liked the characters and the twists and turns of this story and I recommend.
