It's hard to know where to start with this one I thought I was on the verge of kicking off a new smart female centric series that I could get my teeth into What I ended up with was a sub par not very thrilling thriller with a ridiculous Mills Boon esue romance simmering panting and almost but never uite cavorting in the background I was surprised to find alleged series lead Maggie O'Dell relegated to one of many POVs with the bulk of the initial plot being driven by blander than bland good ol' boy Sheriff Nick who finds himself flailing incompetently when someone starts dumping dead kids in his patch Enter Maggie and all her emotional baggage stage left and let the inappropriate thoughts of romance and jumping each others' bones begin Seriously that's all they do Maggie conjures up a profile that everyone ignores and no wonder really; for a crack hot profiler she comes up with a load of bloody rubbish you could get off the TV has occasionally traumatic thoughts about her traumatic past and spends the rest of the time wondering why she's so incapable of keeping her mind off Nick's pert backside or his piercing eyes or his boyish good looks or hisoh you get the idea There's little to no forensic or technical detail nothing to suggest that Kava did a hint of research and hey why use one adverb when you can use two By the time the dog's breakfast ending of false tension and day old stupid police work rolled around my despair was complete Recommended for masochists only

I found this book to be a bit of a mixture and therefore not easy to review On the one hand it was very readable and I never actually put it to one side and went off to read something else On the other hand neither did I wave it in the air at the end and say what a good book it was The characters were somehow too flawed and Nick in particular never really redeemed himself at all But the biggest problem was realising who the murderer was far too early in the book and then watching the so called experts not being able to see what was under their noses The author tried to put up a few false leads but they did not work for me Nevertheless for a first book this was pretty good and I am looking forward to watching the main character and the author's skill develop as the series continues
