Summary

From the bestselling author of The Butterfly Garden comes a suspenseful new series for the #MeToo era about vigilante justice, close friends, and getting away with murder.

Florida journalism undergrad Rebecca Sorley is like any other college student. She tries to keep up with her studies, her friends, and her hot-tempered roommate, Ellie, who regularly courts trouble with the law.

When a male student's remains are found in alligator-infested waters, the university warns students to stay away from the reptiles. But then a second body shows up, and the link is undeniable. Both men belonged to the same fraternity and had a reputation for preying on and hurting women.

Ellie has previously threatened to kill men who don't take no for an answer. Rebecca and her friends thought Ellie was kidding. But now a vigilante killer is roaming campus - someone who knows how to dispose of rapists. Someone determined to save female students from horrible crimes.

With each passing day, those who know Ellie become more convinced she's responsible. But if she is, stopping her might not be in everyone’s best interest....

Not for me

Sadly, I didn’t enjoy this book. Although I have enjoyed previous books. It just felt too cliched for me. I did persevere with it though it was obvious. And there’s a piece near the end which just made my annoyed! I thought “oh that makes everything alright then“!

The gator killer...

Great job from this new-to-me author! The story is told from 2 POVs...a vigilante killer and a female college junior. Someone has taken justice into her hands and is feeding rapists frat boys to the gators. Meanwhile, investigative journalist student, Rebecca, and her roommate are beginning to suspect one of their suite mates. When the scales of justice do nothing, the gators happily feed. One thing is for sure...the ending will surprise you.

Fantastic

I truly enjoy the way the story keeps you on your toes. The way you are drawn into the mind of the killings is awe inspiring.

Female Dexter

Its obvious from the beginning who the killer is; but the story sucks you in and you forget until the end.

Love it!

This was a great story. It kept my attention the whole time, and while I thought I may have figured it out close to the end, I couldn't stop listening.

Don’t buy

I cannot say one good thing about this book. The story was beyond predictable. It was a sad attempt at the Me Too movement. The southern accents are truly horrendous(I’m from the South so I know what they sound like). The girls relationships and over exaggeration of how “true friendships” work. It’s so bad. I’ve liked past work by this author but this just felt like a horrible miss.

Who's the Vigilante Killer?

I really struggled getting into this book, but that could have been because I was sooo busy and just couldn't get my last great read off my mind!!. It was almost the middle of the book by the time I really started enjoying the story but the second half seemed to make up for it! I absolutely LOVED "The Collector" series by Dot Hutchison so naturally I thought I would instantly love this book, but it definitely wasn't love at first read! But it did take some time to grow on me but it did! Dot Hutchison certainly has the ability to write phenomenal stories with superb characters! The ending was really a surprise ending that I didn't really see coming in true Dot Hutchison fashion! I don't know that I've heard Sarah Naughton narrate a book prior to this one, however, I wasn't disappointed in her performance! She definitely didn't turn me away from ever listening to her again! If you're looking for a story that has a truly good mystery, then Deadly Waters should be on your TBR list!

Don’t waste your time, you can’t get it back

So BAD! I am so disappointed, what a stupid, absurd, unbelievable excuse for a thriller!

god. story

I really looked forward to reading this since I loved the Butterfly Garden series. I didn't like this one as much. Interesting characters though & the end was a surprise. Look forward to the next book by this author.
