Watching You (Detective Kerri Blasco #3) by J.A. Schneider

     Detective Kerri Blasco's newest case is as strange as it gets. A young woman, well liked by everyone, is murdered. It doesn't make sense.  Then the killer strikes again, and again. This killer's twist is something no one had ever dealt with before. Detective Blasco and her partner Alex aren't about to give up on solving this murder. 

     This thriller could have easily fallen off the front page of any newspaper. The characters are like old friends and you'll easily slide right into this story and never feel like you missed a beat. Ms. Schneider is a master of story telling. If you enjoy a page-turning-hair standing-up-on-the-back-of-your-neck type of read, this one is for you. It's out today, so go get your copy.

     I did find issues. In this installment, Detective Blasco seems to have lost her power. She seems almost too sedate. There is some awkward phrasing and parts that don't read smoothly. This book seems to lack the powerful punch normally associated with J.A. Schneider books. 

     I gave this one 4 cheers out of 5 because although the book is good, Ms. Schneider has done better work.

  2. A great read and one I am sure to revisit again in the future. While “Watching You” was my first read by this author, I am sure it will not be my last.
