Sorry..had to fangirl there for a minute.

He is in the middle of a case and sees one of his agents taken down by a random woman. At first he thinks she may be a "hired hit person" but then after digging deeper he realizes he is chasing a female serial killer.
The research th ...more

I have often thought about instincts... those feelings we have... just before we get a phone call that relays bad news... or when you are out and you just know you are missing something... and when you return home... there are issues to handle which could have been handled better if you had just stayed home in the first place. These feelings or senses...I know we all have had them... and a huge part of this book is the thought of w ...more
Having read many crime mysteries throughout the years, my standards are quite high , and although i wasn't as taken with this book as some others i appreciated the writing : the words were flowing easily, the author has a talent for blurring the lines between the natural and the supernatural in a surreal way, there is an Archie/Gretchen "Heartsick" vibe going on between Matthew and Cara(main characters) that has great potential, so a good read for sure but hoping it'll get way better. ...more
Silly old me. I am an avid fan of crime thrillers, especially those with a serial killer involved but somehow I basically just took TOO long to read any book from the brilliant author Alexandra Sokoloff. More fool me, I now have a lot of catching up to do in order to read everything she has ever written including her horror stuff which I also adore.

Do you believe in evil? Evil as a thing? It's own entity? A feeling, trauma, noise or breath that brings darkness, pain and monsters? I've always been fascinated by the light and dark of all humans. That within us all shines the glory of goodness and lurks the darkest depths of hell.
That's why I like shows like Criminal Minds, Dexter and The Walking Dead (it's so not about the zombies) and have always been drawn to the FBI profiler. If any of this interests you, you will r ...more

What a page turner this book turned out to be! Anyone who has followed my reviews has probably noticed that I have a very eclectic taste when it comes to what I read. I find that by mixing things up I am able to fully appreciate each genre. I was in the mood for a serious mystery and a couple of my friends really enjoyed this one so I decided to give it a chance. I am so glad that I took a chance on this novel.
This mystery relied heav ...more
This is an entertaining thriller but I can't bring myself to give it more than 3 stars.
It's the overly descriptive language. Sentences like "working people...energized by the cool ocean air off the gleaming, tireless Pacific" and "the dreamy, beaming people in the parks" followed by "but here, as everywhere, is the darkness"--shit like that makes me mental. FUCKING STOP TALKING AND JUST TELL YOUR STORY.
Even worse, a few chapters later the author describes Roarke, our FBI agent hero, like so:
This was almost like reading the book for the first time since my aging memory seems to remember almost none of this book from my first reading. This is a solid mystery and I really liked the profiling element to solving the case. The characters were great and I love the fact that the villian becomes almost likable by the end of the book. R.C. Bray did a great job with the narration and it was really easy to listen to this book for hours at a time.

The main hook into this story is the two main characters who are superbly well drawn and utterly engaging. Matthew Roarke is an FBI agent who has left the world of profiling behind. Now working on Major Crime, a ...more
Huntress Moon is the best book I have read in a long, long time. From the first page to the last, I couldn't stop reading, and that, my friends, is something very rare. I lived in those characters and in those words, lived in them and never wanted to come out, ...more
Santa Muerte, that was good!
This book is a perfect example for me of the role of timing in whether I enjoy a book or not. I tried to read Huntress Moon earlier in the month, but I went into it with an “urban fantasy” mindset, expecting something a bit on the lightish side, something with a bit of humour. If that is what you want, this is not the droid you are looking for. There are a few fantastical elements, but I wouldn’t characterize it as urban fantasy at all.
This is ...more
Sokoloff creates great suspense with seeming ease. She made it difficult to put the book down and a delight to pick it back up. Her primary two characters had fabulous depth and color and the secondary ...more
The main character is an FBI agent, Matthew Roarke, who is chasing a woman he saw standing by his undercover agent just before he was killed. As the book continues on, you begin to learn more about the unidentified woman and she is fascinating, deadly and complex.
Before I begin my review her is a little bit of background on the award winning author Alexandra Sokoloff (information I paid scant attention to before I started reading…which as it turned out was fortuitous as it didn’t affect my reaction to the book, I started reading with no real expectations except that this would most probably be a great read – and I was not disappointed) and it allowed me to have several uninhibited email discussions with the author on an equal foot ...more
FBI Special Agent Matthew Roarke’s spidey senses were tingling. Is it intuition, a cop’s experience honed to pick up subtle vibes, or something more?
He was meeting an undercover agent when he saw her. She stood out…reeked of danger…and as the pieces come together, he is hot on her trail.
Roarke could’ve run ...more
Compelling is a reviewer cliche; here it's an understatement.
Review: A gripping, page turner of a thriller. Yes, Roarke is a stereotypical FBI Agent but his background intermingles with the killers own in an interesting twist. She herself is driven, dangerous and yet you are rooting for her to remain free at the end of the book. Without giving too much away, parts of this book are horrifying and you f ...more
