Disclosure. This post is a review of an ebook I was sent for free. All opinions are my own.
I have received a free e-copy of the book One More Kill by bestselling author Carolyn Arnold to review. To find out more about the author you may visit her website.
Here is the book blurb.
He told her to run. And she did. As fast as her legs would take her, but it wasn’t fast enough…
The bodies of a husband and wife are found in a patch of woods in small-town, rural Arkansas by a neighboring farmer. They were shot with an arrow, gutted, and left to bleed out. The killer also removed their eyes and replaced them with large cat’s-eye marbles. The murder method and signature are too bizarre to point toward an isolated incident, and FBI Special Agent Brandon Fisher recognizes this right away. His boss with the Behavioral Analysis Unit, Supervisory Special Agent Jack Harper, confirms that he’s crossed paths with this killer several years ago, and he has a voracious appetite for blood. In fact, Jack’s seen his work firsthand—six times, three couples, in three states.
Brandon, Jack, and the rest of the team head to Arkansas for one purpose: to bring down the ruthless and elusive serial killer who calls himself “the Leopard.” Versatile and adaptive, this madman hunts his prey like a wild, hungry cat—tracking them, then striking with swift viciousness. But just as the FBI think they might finally be getting closer to the Leopard’s true identity, he adapts his method and starts killing people faster than ever before.
Racing to catch up, and struggling to get one step ahead, the FBI comes to uncover buried family secrets that aid the investigation—while at the same time, flipping it on its head. Suddenly, the hunters are now the hunted. And while this case has haunted Jack since he joined the Bureau, things are about get more personal and dangerous than he ever would have imagined. If he and his team aren’t careful, one of them—or someone they love—may become the Leopard’s next victim.
This is book 9 in the Brandon Fisher FBI series, but also works well as a stand-alone read. I’ve been following this series since book 6 but haven’t read the earlier titles yet.
The story starts with the gruesome killing of a couple Mark and Stephanie Duran in rural Arkansas. The FBI team from the Behavioural Anaylsis Unit of Brandon, Jack, Paige and Kelly are called in to investigate. Jack recognises this as being the work of an elusive serial killer, nicknamed the Leopard, who seems to have been dormant for 15 years. Why?
Plus this time the killer has deviated from his usual patterns? Again why?
And then things get even more personal as the killer changes tactics and leaves them a note.
One More Kill is newly published on Amazon today. Wow. This gripping page turner had me on the edge of my seat. Highly recommended.
