⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
A perfectly paced, suspense thriller. Sergio and Carly are on the search for a killer again. This time they are working separately and dealing with other intense issues as well. Can they find the killer, save the people, find an even keel for themselves, and still keep their jobs? It’s going to be intense.
Sergio Martin is a very good detective, even though he does outside the rules on occasion, he still gets results and discovers and apprehends the killer. His methods may not always follow his bosses, desires, but he gets the job done. The trouble is that his Lieutenant doesn’t like his methods and is looking for any way to get rid of him. When someone starts killing reporters and attempts to kill a defense lawyer, Sergio has to work to beat the clock and the killer before any more people meet their demise.
Carly has an interview and won’t be working with Sergio in the field on this case. Her day goes from bad to worse and then a case comes in that will have her working it from the precinct. Can she do as well of a job from the desk as she can in the field finding the killer and the clues? Not only does she have to deal with her interview being postponed, yet again, but her ex called and wants to meet her for dinner. Things can’t get any worse this day, or can they?
I loved this story and I love Carly and Sergio. They have great chemistry and a great working repertoire. When they have to work the case separately, it gets a bit dicey. Carly is looking at the case with a different eye and Sergio has to refrain from doing things the way he normally would, off the cuff. When they both have to work under a microscope the case almost gets away from them, but they’re professionals and they can do the job and all the other stuff will have to work out. Dan does a great job of leading the reader on a chase along with the detectives, the pace of this story is perfect, the characters as always are great, and twists in this book kept me on the edge of my seat. Dan’s Double Blind Series is right up there with a James Patterson book in my eyes. The suspense kept building throughout the book, having me guessing almost until the end as to who the killer was. I loved it and I give it a 5-star review.
