Set against the atmospheric backdrop of rural Pacific Northwest, New York Times bestselling author Rebecca Zanetti’s thrilling suspense series follows FBI Special Agent Laurel Snow as she strives to navigate her complicated family life when her newly discovered sociopathic half-sister becomes the target of a dangerous killer. The Blacklist meets The Profiler meets Justified in this fast, page-turning thriller that will have readers guessing until the very end!
What do you do when a sociopath loves you? Rising star FBI profiler Laurel Snow is about to find out …
Calling Laurel Snow’s relationship with her newly discovered half-sister challenging is an understatement. Not only does Laurel suspect Abigail is behind the mysterious disappearance of their father, but her erratic behavior also makes life in Laurel’s small hometown interesting, to say the least. Still, when Abigail claims someone is now out to kill her, Laurel’s instinct to protect her sister goes into overdrive. Then things get even more dicey as dead bodies start turning up in the icy waters of the Sauk River and there’s only one connection among them: Abigail . . .
Having Fish and Wildlife Captain Huck Rivers bringing in those bodies with his dive team only complicates matters. Huck is as impulsive and fiery as Laurel is coolly analytical, which makes their alliance risky at best. But standing up to such a demonically brilliant killer is going to take all the help Laurel can get. Because Laurel’s attempt to save her troubled sister’s life might cost her own .
I was happy to continue the Laurel Snow series. The series is best read in order because of the career and personal developments. I like Laurel and she works so hard. The romance isn’t settled but she and Huck are definitely interested in each other. Sadly, her half sister Abigail is doing everything she can to butt into Laurel’s life.
A new serial killer is on the scene for You Can Hide. There are too many suspects and the team of Huck and Laurel struggle to narrow it down, but more women are dying. The local sheriff continues to be a dick, hence the federal task force. Then the annoyance of an old flame of Huck’s, who is a reporter, only makes things worse.
Laurel started her team with Walter from another office, and Kate, a single mom, in the previous book. Now she gets Nester who is a computer whiz and new agent. Her team continues to grow and she considers now whether she wants to make this town her office going forward. Her mother is here and she likes her team.
While the collection of evidence and narrowing of suspects continues, not only are women dying, but the team is suffering injuries. Laurel takes this hard but Huck supports her emotionally.
The women dying are all professionals with doctorates, who are divorced. It is sad to see this happen. Our point of view is primarily Laurel, but we get a bit of the killer. The killer is a shocking twist and I didn’t figure it out, but that’s normal. I do enjoy the smart police work and the mystery as they work the case. I will be happy to read more because there is more to develop with her team and personal relationships.
Amy Landon is a narrator I know and enjoy. I thought her voices worked well for Laurel and the other characters. There was distinction between character’s voices. I was able to listen comfortably at my usual 1.5x speed.
