Description from the Publishers through Netgalley
There’s a killer on the road, and nobody is safe. Michael and Megan Fitzgerald are siblings who share a terrifying past. Both adopted, and now grown — Michael is a long-haul truck driver, Megan a college student majoring in psychology — they trust each other before anyone else. They’ve had to.
In Los Angeles, Detective Garrett Dobbs and FBI Agent Jessica Gimble have joined forces to work a murder that seems like a dead cinch. Their chief suspect is quickly identified and apprehended –but then there’s another killing just like the one they’ve been investigating. And another. And not just in Los Angeles — the spree spreads across the country. The Fitzgerald family comes to the investigators’ attention, but Dobbs and Gimble are at a loss — if one of the four is involved, which Fitzgerald might it be?
From coastal California to upstate New York, Dobbs and Gimble race against time and across state lines to stop an ingenious and deeply deranged killer — one whose dark and twisted appetites put them outside the range of logic or experience.
I am a big fan of J.D. Barker’s work and was so excited to see that he partnered with James Patterson on his latest novel. J.D. has an amazing way with sucking you into the story and not letting you go until the very end. I enjoy James Patterson’s Women’s Murder Club series and the short chapter formatting. This novel did not disappoint on either side of this coin.
I had no idea what the premise of this story was and it was so twisty. I guessed and guessed and guessed again as to determine what was really happening but BAM, I was hit with a bit of an unexpected ending. The Fitzgerald family is completely messed up and excellently evil. I highly recommend that you pick this up if you want a screwed up family read.
I gave this book 5 crowns.
