I found this book when I was searching online for books about geocaching. I ordered a copy. There's a cold making its way around my household so I settled in to hide in my bedroom with this book from the virus.

At first I didn't care much for it. It was a bit clunky, but then I grew interested in the mystery. I especially was interested in the killer. Using the POV of the killer was an intriguing trick.

Unfortunately, with these kinds of books that depend on technology, the books age quickly. I d

When I first got my Amazon Kindle, I was looking for 3 or 4 books of which I had been wanting to read. This was the second book I got for my Kindle as I had heard some things about it and the reviews seemed pretty decent. Being a geocacher, too, drew my interest.

Luckily, I didn't read it within the first seven days I purchased it. If so, I would have stopped after two or three chapters and returned it for a refund. Being you have to give full stars for your rating, I went with a 3, thought I wo

First to find is full of firsts and finds that you may think you have all figured out until the ultimate first to find, every nightmare any geocacher has dreamed about. If it’s a gruesome murder, then why leave behind a jar of urine or a dead dog? Casual geocachers out for their finds will stumble upon more than they bargained for in this tale of murder and revenge. If the geocachers put together the clues, will they be led right to the killer or will he catch on to their game?

I bought this book since the author was a geocacher and engineer who was laid off when he wrote it. Featured on podcast it sounded interesting. Circled by a psychotic killer, the geocachers uncover a number of pieces to a bigger puzzle, much like a geocache puzzle, but with potentially drastic consequences. The killer was probably the weakest part of the book with little background provided and crossing over into weird. It was a quick read and held my attention pretty well but it w ...more

This book about catching or geocatching was a new one on me. The story, though, or plot line was a good one that captured my attending and I was eager to read to the end to find out what would happen. There must be more books coming down the pike because there is a lot of further areas and plots that can be mined.

I am so excited to have read this book, written by my dear friend! It's an intriguing story about geocaching in Austin back when I was actively part of the scene. I am enjoying this fictional story, though there are hints of non-fiction throughout :-) ...more

I wanted to like this book, I really did. I loved the idea of a murder mystery surrounding geocaching. That said, the story jumped all over the place, the writing was stale, and the characters were two-dimensional.I wanted to like it, I really did.
