Review - Dark Mind by Jennifer Chase


Synopsis:

A Serial Killer Plagues an Island Paradise... Vigilante detective Emily Stone continues her covert pursuits to find serial killers and child abductors, all under the radar while shadowing police investigations. Emily searches for an abducted nine-year-old girl taken by ruthless and enterprising slave brokers. Following the clues from California to the garden island of Kauai, she begins to piece together the evidence and ventures deep into the jungle. It doesn’t take long before Emily is thrown into the middle of murder, mayhem, and conspiracy. Locals aren’t talking as a serial killer now stalks the island, taking women in a brutal frenzy of ancient superstitions and folklore. Local cops are unprepared for what lies ahead. In a race against the clock, Emily and her team must identify the killer before time runs out.

My thoughts:

As you all know, I'm always on the lookout for a new author to help satisfy my reading obsession.  I read Dark Mind by Jennifer Chase and was shocked that I had never read any of her books before.  Jennifer is a talented writer who brings her fiction to life.  Tracking down a serial killer with Emily was the most fun I have had trying to figure out whodunnit in a long, long time.  I highly recommend that you read this book, you won't regret it!
