Category: Author: Narrator: Length:


Someone is targeting Toledo’s single women when they turn 40, tucking them into bed, and turning birthday greetings into obituaries. Newly-assigned Toledo Homicide Detective Veronica Jadzinski vows to prevent the body count from increasing and to prove her transfer from Narcotics wasn’t a fluke-departmental regulations, disparaging lieutenants, and a rigid new partner be damned.

Jadz learns to trust a new partner while balancing the unwanted attentions of an almost-ex-husband, a needy widowed mother, and a drama queen sister as the detectives fight to unravel the bizarre murders. When the killer targets Jadz’s sister, things get personal. Jadz must heal an old family rift to stop the murders and protect those who really matter.

    This is the first book by this author I have read or listened to but it won’t be the last because I will be keeping an eye out for the next book in the series. I liked the character, especially the way the two lone wolves of the homicide squad are forced to work together and make a good team. The plot was good and I liked the way the mystery unfolded and with determination they find the right guy. The trouble family lives and to the characters and make them more human.
    Someone is killing women on the night they celebrate there forth birthday but with some of the police officer believing that the women were just depressed at turning the big 4 0 and still not married. It is up to Detective Veronica ‘Jadz’ Jadzinki and new partner to prove they didn’t commit suicide. With the body count rising, the detectives must balance the rigors of a serial killer hunt with the demands put on them from family life, such an ill mother, a drunk sister and an soon to be ex husband and appearance in court for previous cases. Someone with a grudge is gunning for Jadz and that is before the killer starts hunting her own.Will the two detectives get enough proof to put the killer away before he kills again? Especially as this time he has his sights set on someone closer to the detective.
    I liked the narrator and loved the voice she used for Jadz partner the accent really helped make the story entertaining.
