I enjoyed the story but felt like there were too many theories! Since it was one of her early books I think she didn't know how to end the story. The killer wasn't very well developed.

Although this was not her best it does have some much needed answers to her previous books in the series. The cold case part wasn't wound as tightly as it should have been nor was the killer and his motives.

Too much was dependent on a previous book - which I have not read. In the end, you didn't really care about the killer's motives because they were so poorly developed.

The partner (JJ) was a far more interesting character than Ellie

Alafair Burke is an amazing new writer with taut suspense and interesting characters. Can't wait for more of her books!

All those dead ends and you know that she's just leading us astray. First half of the book is only powder in your face, kind of filler and getting nowhere. They wake up in the second half. But just because they have to get somewhere. This is all zig-zag action, not very well constructed, and leaving the reader with a sour taste of wasted time.
