"Investigative reporter Maxine Revere has a theory: that the five New York City murders for which Adam Bachman is being tried are just part of his killing spree. In probing the disappearance of a retired couple who vanished the prior summer, Max uncovers striking similarities to Bachman's MO and develops a theory that Bachman wasn't working alone. Max wins a coveted pre-trial interview with the killer, whose disarming composure in the face of her questions is combined with uncomfortable knowledge of Max's own past. She leaves the room convinced, but unable to prove, that Bachman knows exactly what happened to the missing couple. The D.A. wants nothing to jeopardize his case against Bachman and refuses to consider Max's theory. With no physical evidence, Max has to rely on her own wits and investigative prowess to dig deep into Bachman's past. The picture that Max puts together is far darker and more deadly than she ever imagined. As Max gets closer to the truth, she doesn't realize that she's walking down a road that has been paved just for her. That every step she takes brings her one step closer to a brilliant, methodical sociopath who has been waiting for her to make just one small mistake. And when she does, he'll be there waiting. Max Revere returns in another gripping, pulse-pounding thriller from New York Times bestseller Allison Brennan"-- Provided by publisher.
Investigating a theory that a serial killer preparing for trial is responsible for other murders and was working with an accomplice, investigative reporter Maxine Revere engages in a deadly game of cat and mouse in her determination to uncover the truth.

This is book 2 of the Max Revere Series. I am such a huge fan!!! I love Max and her group of friends, Ben is her friend and producer of her TV series, David is her best friend and protector, Nick is her current boyfriend and Marco is her previous boyfriend and he wants her back. This book is a thriller/mystery/psychological thriller. It is very fast paced and full of surprises. Allison Brennan is masterful at writing this type of book and I can't wait for a new one to come out.

I would have given this book a much better rating but I was too tired after the endless repetition of some facts by the author. Do we really need to hear how Maxine was abandoned by her mother when she was 10 years old every 20 pages? Do we really have to be reminded that Maxine can be self-centered, obstinate, and that she has problems forming relationships in every chapter of the book?

I can't think of a single thing that I didn't like or felt that wasn't explained satisfactorily. The plot is an incredibly convoluted murder/missing-persons case that folds into itself multiple times over the course of the book, connecting itself farther and deeper into Max's life than I could've ever imagined. If it had been anyone other than Allison Brennan the story would've definitely started to drag and/or become too confusing. Fortunately, we had a veteran author writing who made the story exciting and thrilling, with distinct and interesting characters, that kept me hooked from front cover to back.
