GIVEAWAY & REVIEW: The Stranger You Know: A Forensic Instincts Novel by Andrea Kane

(Thank you to the publisher and TLC Book Tours for providing me with a copy of this book!)
about book:

It begins with a chilling phone call to Casey Woods. And ends with another girl dead.
College-age girls with long red hair. Brutally murdered, they’re posed like victims in a film noir. Each crime scene is eerily similar to the twisted fantasy of a serial offender now serving thirty years to life—a criminal brought to justice with the help of Forensic Instincts.

Call. Kill. Repeat. But the similarities are more than one psychopath’s desire to outdo another. As more red-haired victims are added to the body count, it becomes clear that each one has been chosen because of a unique connection to Casey—a connection that grows closer and closer to her.
Now the Forensic Instincts team must race to uncover the identity of a serial killer before his ever-tightening circle of death closes in on Casey as the ultimate target. As the stalker methodically moves in on his prey, his actions make one thing clear: he knows everything about Casey. And Casey realizes that this psychopath won’t stop until he makes sure she’s dead.

my thoughts:

A murderer who is raping and killing redheads - yikes! Sounds like a job for Casey Woods and her Forensics's Instincts team.  The third book in the series, The Stranger You Know, is a quick-paced, suspense-filled thriller of a read by Andrea Kane.  Well written, engaging, and extremely descriptive, this book will have you gasping out loud and cringing in horror. 

Casey Wood's latest case is like a blast from the past.  A killer whose focus is redheads - sounds familiar to her.   Like familiar in the sense that she is reminded of a case from the past that follows the same patterns - the same case that led her to form Forensic Instincts.  Except it can't be the same killer, because he's in jail and this murderer is out on the prowl looking for his next victim, right?  Or is Glen (the convicted killer) doling out orders to someone and leading Casey on a wild goose chase - after all, he's had plenty of time to figure out a plan of revenge against Casey.  Hmm.  Armed with a team that includes a psychic, Casey is determined to find the culprit sooner rather later - at any cost!

Kane has written a terrific book that will keep you on the edge of your seat!  I found myself biting my nails the whole time I read this book - it was riveting!  I couldn't help but get mad when my kindle button would get stuck (its old and I need a new one!) and the page wouldn't turn!  I was HOOKED on this book!!  So, yes, I would most definitely recommend Andrea Kane's The Stranger You Know to fans of Andrea Kane's books, suspense-mystery novels, and crime-thriller books.

No need to enter me in the give away, I've already received fabulous books from you and don't want to be selfish, but I must admit to loving a good mystery/thriller. Am almost finished with Night Film which was a fabulously intriguing book. To me. :)
