Tell Me About It
You can run from the past…but you can never truly hide…

Detective Evelyn Davis delves deep into the minds of monsters for a living. She's the best psychological profiler in the Seattle P.D., with a talent that comes from heartbreaking experience. When Evelyn was just eighteen, she received word of her family's murder in the form of a horrifying video. Fifteen years later, tracking down other psychopaths is the only thing that brings her some peace.

But now two local families have been wiped out. Though the chilling crime scenes suggest murder-suicides, Evelyn believes a serial killer is at work. So does Special Agent Marcus Moretti, whose easy charm and fiercely protective instincts are breaking down all her defenses. Evelyn needs to put aside her emotional attachment to find the madman stalking her city—but with each discovery, this case becomes more personal. She's starting to suspect the killer wants her—and he is edging closer with every step, ready to make Evelyn pay a devastating price….
My Thoughts
I initially requested Dead don't Lie as the synopsis sounded like this would be a great read. However, when I began reading I wasn't too impressed. I found myself getting distracted too easily, but I was determined to carry on reading. There was something about the whole mystery of the investigations that I needed to find out more about.

Approximately halfway through Dead don't Lie I found myself suddenly drawn into the story, the investigation took on a whole new meaning and got even more personal. All of a sudden, the author had upped the ante and without knowing when or how, I found myself emotionally attached to the protagonist, and I needed to see this story to the end.

The last few chapters were tense and nail biting scenes, I had no idea what would happen or how it would all end. It's gruesome, bloody, but makes for a great read. The ending was a happy one for me, especially after all of the heartache and tears I cried beforehand.

Dead don't Lie as a whole was an average read. The beginning was too slow for me, I would have preferred a bit more action, the ending of this book made up for the slow start, and I am glad I did continue reading, it also made this a slightly better read and rating than I was planning on giving it.
