Review of The Kill List

23628415

Jamie Sinclair Is a private investigator who specializes in security problems.  She receives a phone call from her no-good ex-husband asking for her help.  His young daughter has been kidnapped and he needs Jamie to find her.  Since a child is involved, she cannot say no.

She returns to Fort Leeds, where she lived as a child, to begin her search.  Working together with the military police,  and the FBI, she is determined to find the child before it is too late.  But while she is trying to save the child, someone begins stalker her.  Now she not only has to be concerned for the child’s safety but also her own.

The characters are well developed, well rounded and three dimensional.  Jamie is a strong determined woman who is good at what she does.  But we get to see a softer side of her with her concern over the little girl.   And we get the idea that she has self doubts and sometimes wonders if she is good enough.  These things make her seem even more human.  The three men in her live add a lot to the story.

The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read.  The author is very talented in creating tension and suspense with just the written word. There are so many twists and turns that I was unable to solve the mystery on my own.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well plotted mystery suspense thriller.  This is the first book that I have read by this author but I already have the next book in my to-be-read pile.  Give it a try, you will not be disappointed.

I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for a honest review.  I would like to thank NetGalley and Random House Publishing for the opportunity to read and review this book.
