Blurb: When multiple body parts are recovered from the Little Ogeechee River in Savannah, Georgia, local law enforcement calls in FBI agent and profiler Brandon Fisher and his team to investigate. But with the remains pointing to three separate victims, this isn’t proving to be an open-and-shut case.
With no quick means of identifying the deceased, building a profile of this serial killer is more challenging than usual. How are these targets being selected? Why are their limbs being severed and their bodies mutilated? And what is it about them that is triggering this person to murder?
The questions compound as the body count continues to rise, and when a torso painted blue and missing its heart is found, the case takes an even darker turn. But this is only the beginning, and these new leads draw the FBI into a creepy psychological nightmare. One thing is clear, though: The killing isn’t going to stop until they figure it all out. And they are running out of time…

"The time had come to select his next victim. He had to choose carefully and perfectly - he wouldn't get a second chance."

This book was amazing. It was gripping and intriguing from the beginning! Although I have not yet read the other books in the series, it works well as a stand-alone book. However, I will definitely be reading the other books in the series soon because the characters are incredible!

Although the chapters in this book were written from the perspective of different people, I loved that it was clear who was speaking almost instantly as the author managed to switch from character to character really well. One of my favourite parts of the whole book was that the author managed to get into the head of the killer which added a chilling and creepy aspect to the book. Overall the characters were brilliant and were all unique and different from each other.

The plot of this book was brilliant. The author went into a lot of detail about the plot and story which was amazing. The mystery was done really well and I found it very hard to figure out who the killer was, I was shocked when I found out who it was at the end of the book. I would have never thought that it would end in the way it did. Overall this story was brilliant.

However there were a lot of different settings and places in this story which at times was confusing. The settings were very well described and I found it very easy to picture the places as things were happening. A lot of the description in the chapters about the killer were brilliant; they were another one of my favourite parts of the book. At some points while reading the book I felt more like I was watching a movie or TV show than reading which made for a great experience. 

Although I have not read many mystery/crime books this has made me want to read more books like it because the writing, plot and characters were all incredible. Overall, I would recommend that you read this book if you enjoy mystery and crime books!
