Summary: Lieutenant Lindsey Boxer begins investigating a string of homicides. The victims are young boys who are being electrocuted in back alley hotel rooms with the words “Nobody Cares” spray painted on the walls. In no time at all, Lindsey has a suspect, the owner of a black Mercedes that was spotted at both crime scenes. While staking out the car in question, 2 people get into the car and a high speed chase ensues. When the car crashes Lindsey and her partner find two teenagers in the car. Thinking they were joyriding and seeing that they are injured, they break police procedure to render aide. But these teens pull guns once they are helped from the car and Lindsey and her partner are shot. With no other option, Lindsey opens fire on these teens, killing one and paralyzingly the other. Now she is being sued by their father. Lindsey retreats to her sister’s house and, unbeknownst to her, she lands smack in the middle of the kill zone of a group of serial killers.
Review: I have enjoyed every book in this series so far and this one was no exception! It is well written, an amazing story, and had one hell of an ending! Totally did not see it coming and I’m usually pretty good at guessing ‘whodunit’. I definitely recommend picking up this series from the beginning!
