Summary

A serial killer is on the loose in San Diego, and he has a most unusual M.O.: with each kill, he leaves behind objects with unclear meanings. Most of the recent killings are centered near Kendra Michaels' home and office, so it comes as no great surprise when the FBI shows up at her door.

The investigators soon make a startling discovery: the left-behind objects are actually souvenirs of other unsolved serial murder cases in various US cities. And the new cases feature "holdback" characteristics of the other murders unknown to the general public. Kendra realizes that the killer has come to challenge and taunt her.

The investigators become his newest targets, even as Kendra slowly begins to suspect that one of them may be the killer himself. She must find the killer as the body count rises, and to do so she relies on her own "dream team" of agent-for-hire Adam Lynch and private investigator Jessie Mercado. They must risk everything to defeat a psychopath whose terrifying plan is years in the making.

Characters

I know Kendra is the main character, but without Lynch, it wouldn't matter. I love Jesse too. Olivia is good, her mother not so much. So don't have her in the picture much, if at all. Her character is annoying.
Keep Kendra and Lynch together as forever partners, lovers and maybe more. The drama is the main point but love and a savvy duo is exciting and attractive. It will bring me back for every book you write about them. Thanks

Iris Johansen has outdone herself once again!

This one had me on the edge of my chair the entire trip. And I was still surprised by the ending! Awesome book!

This was EXCELLENTLY done. I did not know who the serial killer was until you choose to reveal.

I used to love her....

I think it is time for Iris to put down her typewriter. Turn it into a nice planter or something. This book was hard to get through and was too predictable. The characters are boring and never come off the paper at all. The plot was thin..... I was really disappointed.

One of the best series from the Mom and Son duo. fascinating main character reminiscent of a modern day Sherlock Holmes. ending was a surprise twist.
The narration was excellent.

Look Behind You

I am amazed by Kendra's attention to details. It makes me want to be more aware and pay more attention. I enjoyed the story. This is book 5 and I have not read any book in this series or by this author and I still followed everything. I will definitely be reading more of her books!!

Romance cliff hanger

I enjoyed this story overall especially the surprise villain at the end. I always hate to see characters get killed off but the author made it as painless as possible. The romance is somewhat of a cliffhanger. it has been five books in the making and seems like such a waste of years for them when they could be sharing a rich life.
other than that I have really liked thisbaeries.

Reading

I’m a big fan of Iris Johansen, especially the Kendra Michaels series. But the reader’s attempt at male voices was not successful and a bit distracting. Would have been better if a male did the male voices. Still it’s a terrific book.
