The second in a trilogy based around the concept of the movie Strangers on a Train where three inmates each in for a different reason who meet in a holding room at the courthouse one morning develop a plan where they will each kill three people for one of the other inmates This second one follows the release of the second prisoner and the next 3 victims on the list It is not as much serial killer as the first one, but almost of a murder mystery, and again, you will find a return of familiar names in both the inmates and the good guys in this second book It was my second favorite of the three the first Dead Wrong being my favorite A great and fast paced story and falls perfectly in line with the first Again, it was great to read all three of the books in a row to keep the flow going. Amanda s stalker is in prison, so she is safe Yet when the murders of two very close friends, her business partner and another shopkeeper, only have a connection to her, she is under suspicion by the police And then, she begins getting the calls with no one speaking and the single rose, elements her stalker had used previously Amanda decides, with the help of her policeman brother and the local chief of police, to fight back. Disappointingly un thrillingThis second in a series serial killer novel was s letdown The main characters were simple, one dimensional and predictable The killer s motive was known all along, so there was no drama Additionally, the killer was inept The final capture scene was a non event The set up for book 3 doesn t promise much better, but I already downloaded it to my Kindle, so I ll give it a go. Amanda Crosby is the owner of an antique store along with her partner Derek England She feels that her life has returned to a peaceful existence since her stalker is behind bars and she can concentrate on running her business until her partner turns up dead She then becomes a suspect in his murder Another antique dealer turns up dead who had the store next to Amanda s as well as being a good friend of hers The local law figures that Amanda may also be a target. This is the second of this series called Dead And once again I like the book, but the capture of the bad guy was a let down I think I had the same problem with the first book I just think that this author needs just a little imagination to end these books with a bigger bang Still, it was a good one. plaza Pageturner A quick and easy mystery novel While this is book 2, the author does a good job giving you an understanding of book one You don t need to read book one to read this one Some characters cross over.
