Las Vegas Crime

(1 customer review)


Her body, naked and crushed under the weight of the cold, desert rocks that had been her tomb, while she still drew breath. Her eyes, blue as the deep desert sky at dawn, stared into the distance, blurred with tears. Her lips remained immobile, although if I listened hard enough, I thought I heard her scream.

The girl: gone

When a teenage girl is daringly kidnapped from her school, minutes after being dropped off, a frenzied search begins, involving the entire police force of a city that never sleeps. But for Detectives Baxter and Holt this isn’t a crime like any other; it is personal. 

The crimes: terrifying

A bold and merciless serial killer preys on young girls and leaves them out to die in the cold and dreadful expanse of the Mojave Desert, unable to move, to scream, to fight for their lives.

The choice: impossible

Now Detective Holt is faced with an agonizing decision: he can sacrifice all that he holds dear or jeopardize the life of an innocent girl, his own flesh and blood. The man holding all the cards in this game of life and death isn’t willing to negotiate; he’s only willing to kill. 

Two mavericks form an intriguing team. Baxter and Holt trust each other with their lives, just not with their secret plans.

If you’re a fan of James Patterson, David Baldacci, Michael Connelly, and Robert Dugoni, you’ll be enthralled by this riveting, entertaining kidnapping thriller that will keep you reading until the break of dawn.

    !!!! WOW !!!!!!
    Great writer and great narrator = Ellexcent team and a must have audio book.

    This is the third Baxter and Holt book and even though I enjoyed the other two this is by far my favourite. It has everything you could want in a story- good guy you love to love and bad guys you love to hate, computer side kicks and even FBI agents.
    Baxter once again has to channel her dark side and brake some rules when her partners daughter is kidnapped. Heads need to be smashed and bones broken, as well as a sick killer to be caught. This killer might keep you up at night not because it went into graphic details, it was just the thought of what he does with his victims. I would still recommend the book though and the nice thing is you don’t need to have read the other books first but if you are going to read this one you might as well

    Gwendolyn is one a my favourite narrator’s and with this book she proves why. So much emotion and characters portrayed by one voice is amazing and makes an excellent story very enjoyable.
