The authors tend to use too much detail (Rosa plops down on Claire’s “soft, comfortable, dark green, velour sofa”), and almost every female character is attractive (Claire is “beautiful”; others are “hot” or “stunning”). All this might have worked better on the screen.

Synopsis

With their electrifying debut, Kill Switch, Neal Baer, executive producer of Under the Dome, and Jonathan Greene delivered "suspense on the order of The Silence of the Lambs" (Denver Post). Now the former executive producers of NBC’s Law & Order: Special Victims Unit are back with a stunning new thriller featuring forensic psychiatrist Claire Waters—and a razor-sharp madman who’s ready to Kill Again

Haunted by a brutal childhood, Dr. Claire Waters finds solace in helping other survivors of abuse. Her favorite patient, Rosa Sanchez, is finally getting her life together after being victimized for years. So it’s a shock when Rosa is handcuffed and led away by a man Claire assumes is law enforcement. But as she soon realizes, Rosa has been abducted.

Stunned, Claire turns to her friend Nick Lawler, a homicide detective in the NYPD. Relegated to desk work because of his failing eyesight, Nick will have to risk his career to find Rosa—and track down a deranged criminal who reduces his victims to nothing but bones. A brilliant gamesman obsessed with order and perfection, scrawling words and phrases across the walls of his basement apartment, the killer has been preparing for this moment all of his life—when every letter is in place, every piece is in play—and the object of his obsession, Dr. Claire Waters, is in the game. Win, lose, or die...

Kill Again is a harrowing psychological thrill-ride filled with terrifying twists and turns, captivating characters, and mindbending puzzles that will keep you guessing until the final, shocking climax.
