Ten Days Gone by Beverly Long
An A.L. McKittridge Novel Book 1
MIRA Mass Market Paperback; February 19, 2020
They know exactly when he’ll strike… They just have to find him first.
In all their years working for the Baywood police department, detectives A.L. McKittridge and Rena Morgan have never seen anything like it. Four women dead in forty days, each killed ten days apart. With nothing connecting the victims and very little evidence, the clock is already counting down to when the next body drops. A.L. and Rena will have to act fast if they’re going to find the killer’s next victim before he does.
But identifying the killer’s next likely target is only half the battle. With pressure pushing in from all sides, a promising breakthrough leads the detectives to Tess Lyons, a woman whose past trauma has left her too damaged to appreciate the danger she’s in. Unwilling to let another woman die, A.L. and Rena will put everything on the line to keep Tess safe and end the killer’s deadly spree once and for all—before time runs out again.
In this exhilarating first installment, detective partners A.L. Kitteridge and Rena Morgan are hunting a serial killer who has murdered four women in forty days, ten days apart. With no connections or evidence, A.L. and Rena somehow have to find the next victim before the killer can strike again.
A good solid thriller read that kept me interested with a mix of suspense, personal backstories, with well written characters and plot. The two detectives are real people, each with their own personal problems which make them relatable. The characters worked well together and didn’t take away from the other character. I didn’t have the serial killer figured out beforehand and certainly not the reasoning. Looking forward to the next book.
