"ELLE PAIE POUR ELLE." C'est la phrase qu'un tueur en série grave dans la chair de ses victimes.

I think this book was a bit too long, and I had some difficulty following it in places, but it was still a good story. As one other reviewer mentioned, at times it seemed like I had been reading forever and not getting very far with the story. Nevertheless, it was a good story and I enjoyed it.

I understand the next book in this series will be "Nowhere Safe." I don't know when it will be released. I am looking forward to it.
September Rafferty, a new detective with the Laurelton, Oregon police department, is dealt a huge challenge as her first major case. They're trying to track a serial killer who carves "Do Unto Others..." on the victims, all who happen to resemble her. To further complicate matters, Jake Westerly, her first love (unrequited), is part of the suspect focus because of his relationship with one of the victims. 

To say September comes from a dysfunctional family is an understatement (all of her sibling

A great continuation story - the serial killer stayed "hidden" for most of the book, some red herrings tossed in my way, but some things just weren't adding up. This is a pretty good series, took me a bit to get use to Ms. Bush's writing, but now that I have a handle on it, I like it.

A deeper glimpse into the life of one of the twins with the cool names and nicknames, with the serial killer tying into their elementary school - same classes. The twins do come from wealth albeit a dysfunctional fa

I wasn't to sure about this one when I started. Seemed to drag a bit at the first but the pace picked up and was well worth sticking until the end. This one will have you guessing until the end.

Detective September “Nine” Rafferty is new to the Laurelton Police Department and she is now in charge of the “Do Unto Others” case. The big question is did the murders start when she started her new job in Laurelton, or because she started her new job in Laurelton. As Nine and her partner interview friends and acquaintances of the murdered women, the facts keep coming circling back to Nine and her youth. September doesn’t know if she’s paranoid or if the killer really does have something to do ...more

I received this book in a Goodreads First Reads giveaway. This novel is a great mix of mystery, suspense and romance. Detective September Rafferty and her partner, Gretchen Sandler, are in pursuit of a serial killer who carves the message "Do unto others" into the flesh of his victims. September or Nine, as she is known to her friends, comes to realize that she is the ultimate victim that the killer is seeking. September must work through a quandry of problems, including a highly dysfunctional f ...more

I'm not even finished with this book and I'm totally frusrated. The idea and story line is great but the author skips around and leaves out so much its ridiculous. Some of the best parts of the book she comletely leaves the reader in the dark, like easing about September finding this note tha caused her mother's death. It's a build up, then she just casually mentions this big fight about it....thats it! No scene ....nothing! Irritating. And the main character, weak. So so weak, has no mind or ap ...more

I liked the characters in the book...especially the main character September Rafferty...her nick name is Nine...pretty cool...I like her family too...they all have names that are months...

The story line is original and not remember another storyline like this only complaint was that I felt like I was reading forever...for whatever reason, I feel like the text was very wordy...but overall I really did like the story.

This is the second book about the Rafferty family and centers around September Rafferty also known by her nickname Nine. September and her twin, August, are both police officers and when September is assigned her first big case, it seems as if the killer is targeting her. Nancy Bush's novels are well written and keep you turning pages until you get to the end. I can't wait for the next one involving the Rafferty family.

She also seems to be targeted by the killer who sends messages to her at the police station. Jake Westerly - a childhood special friend - reunites with September and helps solve the crime.

Another really good read in Rafferty Family line. I wish there had been more resolution of the killer beyond he's dead. But still it's a good read and it kept me guessing.

Detective September “Nine” Rafferty, is seemingly the latest target of a serial killer when she receives a drawing she made in second grade with the words ”Do Unto Others As She Did To Me” scrawled all over it. The same words that have been carved into the bodies of the last two victims, both who resemble her closely. During the course of the investigation, a third victim is found along with a link to Nine's past – Jake Westerly. Nine had a crush on Jake in high school, but he never paid her muc
This was an amusing thriller, with fast action and good mystery. Psycho killer on the loose, possibly targeting our heroine, Detective September Rafferty! However, it took a little too long to really get to the point and for the story to develop - the first 150 pages kind of dragged for me, while not really telling me much important... The detectives seemed to be a bit too realistic for this type of a book (they were mostly - like in real life - incompetent and dumb cops), or sometimes acted pla ...more

"Nowhere to Hide" by Nancy Bush was good thriller, mystery, suspense and romantic read that had a enormous cast of characters. With that being said I will say that "Nowhere to Hide" will keep you on the edge of your seat with keeping up with it all. This author knows how to keep your attention.

Ugh. This was just too stupid to be believed. First there is the Rafferty family with the stupid names. The father was a cheating husband and domineering father who named his kids after the months in which they were born. A son named March, a daughter named May who was murdered as a teen by a weirdo now stalking her sister, a daughter named July who for some reason has gotten her single ass artificially impregnated, and of course, the twins August and September- Auggie born at 11:57 pm on August ...more

I wasn't sure what to expect when I won Nowhere to Hide from a goodreads giveaway. As a huge fan of Criminal Minds, Nowhere to Hide seemed like my type of book with mystery, suspense, and a serial killer, but I have never read a novel written by Nancy Bush before. However, Nowhere to Hide managed to surprise me; it had a perfect mix of mystery, romance, and suspense.

While I loved this book, the second in the Rafferty series, and I think September Rafferty is great fun, it didn't do for me what NOWHERE TO RUN did because I fell IN LOVE with Auggie Rafferty, September's (a.k.a. Nine's) brother from N2R and had hoped to see a lot more of Auggie and Liv in this book. But I understand... Auggie's story with Liv (who was the primary character in N2R) played out in THAT book and Bush is focused on the female viewpoint, which makes sense. But I must say that Raffer ...more

Nowhere to Hide is a mystery by Nancy Bush. It is the second in the series. It is action packed and you never know what will happen next.
September Rafferty has received a threat in the mail. Someone got hold of an art project she did in second grade, wrote Do Unto Others As She Did To Me on it and sent it to her. In addition, several young women had been strangled and had words and markings carved into them and thrown away in fields surrounding the town. One clearly had Do Unto others carved on

I found this book disturbing. The sexual violence is unnecessarily graphic; the passages where you are inside the head of the rapist-murderer as he thinks about and commits his hideous crimes are all the more chilling and sickening for their gratuitousness. I wouldn't recommend it if you're vulnerable around such topics.

This is the second book in the series. I haven't read the first one and although you can just about get away with reading this as a stand-alone, I would recommend readin

I liked the first in this series enough to buy the second...I wasn't overly impressed with this, it was OK, but shelfari has no OK rating... I wouldn't say I disliked it but, like the first one, it could have been a hundred or so pages shorter...

The stories are a bit samey in terms of what goes on with the twins... Maybe the elements that are similar is intentional because they are twins, hard to explain without spoilers.
