A killer's deadly game needs new players . . . but someone's about to change the rules
As a medical examiner, Serena Hopkins is used to dealing with death. But that doesn't make it any easier when she's called to the eerie scene of a murder--especially when Serena realizes that she knows the victim. Nearly as unnerving is the presence of FBI agent Dominic Allen, her childhood crush.
As evidence mounts and points to a serial killer with disturbingly familiar methods, Serena and Dominic must work to find a pattern and stop the killings before the murderer strikes again. And when Serena's own life seems at stake, she must decide if the secret she has been keeping has put her next on the killer's hit list. Can she trust Dominic with the truth before it's too late?
Whew! What a book! Fast-paced and heart pounding from the first page, this isn’t a book you want to miss!
I read this book incredibly fast. And that’s a good thing. This is the first book I’ve read from Miss Eason and I must say I’m impressed. Her writing is easy to read, her characters are very admirable, and her plot was a large knot just waiting to be untied.
When a Heart Stops is focused mainly on Serena. It was just another homicide investigation until Serena pulled up and recognized the victim as someone she knew from high school. Evidence seems to indicate that an old serial killer has returned…but he’s in jail so it must be a copycat. The tension mounts with every chapter and soon Serena finds herself the next target.
Serena is a medical examiner (M.E.) for the police. Not exactly an attractive job, but it was neat to read about. I’d like to thank Miss Eason for giving us a very little, visually, about the autopsies. From what I’ve heard, she’s had a part in past Eason novels, but this is the first time I met her. She is a very realistic character with honorable traits and a heart for God. I think she and I would have been good friends.
Miss Eason’s latest suspense novel is one that I enjoyed. I would recommend though, that you don’t read it at night… ;-)
