One by one, he'll stalk them, then he'll squeeze the trigger, savoring the way each lifeless body crumples to the reddening snow. One down already. And then there were five. . .

I want someone who has been down in the trenches, who has had bad stuff happen to ...more
care for the story line and I couldn't connect with the new characters introduced, Hattie and Sheriff Grayson's family. I also had a hard time following the suspects in the case, I kept forgetting who they were. I wanted to put the book down, but stuck with it because I was acquainted with the characters from the first four books.
The characters too have gone beyond ridiculous, especially in parent-children relations. Finally, the prose feels tired, and words like "haphazardl ...more
