Watching You by: J.A. Schneider

Watching You

Synopsis from Goodreads:

A serial killer texts his victims first. A detective vows revenge. He comes after her.

In the chill of an October night, Detective Kerri Blasco is called to a bizarre murder scene. Leda Winfield, a young volunteer for the homeless, has been shot. Her cell phone displays the frightening text, WATCHING YOU, and into her back, hideously pushed with a hat pin, is a note with the same awful message. Leda’s socialite family and friends insist that no one would have wanted to harm her, but Detective Kerri isn’t convinced.

Until another random young woman is killed in exactly the same way. Kerri and her team profile a monstrous killer who enjoys terrifying his victims before stalking and killing them. But how does he get their phone numbers?

Kerri soon finds that the killer is after her, too, and that the key to finding him may just be in the homeless shelter. When the body count rises, she vows to stop the madman – even if it means battling her own personal trauma, risking her job, her love relationship with her boss Alex Brand, and her life.

My Review:

This is the 3rd book in the Kerri Blasco series and the second one that I have read and I have found a new favorite detective.  Kerri is a stubborn but caring detective who trusts her gut and her smarts to get the case closed.

I loved this book as much as I loved the other book I read in this series.  They are each different and don’t cover the same crimes over and over again like some series do.  This was another page turner and I was biting my nails until the very end.  I love the added relationship between Kerri and Alex as well.

This particular book had an element of parts of the story being told from the point of view of the stalker/killer.  Caroline Kepnes’ You was praised for this but I though this was done better.

Thank you to the author for sending me an electronic copy for review!

I gave this book 5 crowns.
