everyone back to Rock Harbor with Bree, Kade, and the lovable search and rescue dog Samson, as they assist Captain Nick Andreakos in his search for a serial killer who is really into geocaching Coble really has a way of telling a story, throughout the entire book I thought for sure I knew who the killer was, but as I was lead down another path I had my big jaw dropping moment I am definitely looking forward to readingof her booksI want to thank NetGalley and Thomas Nelson for the ARC in exchange for an honest review Terrible book Someone needs to tell this author that if you re going to write a book that involves investigative and police work, you should talk to people in that field Her characters are completely umrealistic, I didn t believe them at all Awful dialogue And I only made it just over a hundred pages in Don t waste your time. *Ebook ⇰ Abomination ↯ Crackles with an ominous electricity, pulling you inside the mind of a killer who is terrifyingly twistedterrifyingly real The pages will race by as you read, but I guarantee your heart will race even faster TL Hines, author of Waking LazarusA beautiful woman stands by the side of the road, barefoot and bleeding, a child in her arms Someone just tried to kill her, but she wouldn t recognize him if she saw his face She doesn t even remember her own nameA suburban cop surveys a kitchen in disarray a woman and child missing, a chilling note This crime scene is unlike any he has ever seenThe man who calls himself Gideon waits and plans He sees himself as a destroyer of evil, one who rids the world of abominations He has already killed five He will kill again And somewhere in the wilderness, in a secret geocache near where the wild swans gather, lies the unspeakable clue that links them all together Michigan s rugged and beautiful Upper Peninsula is the setting for this absorbing tale of love and loss, beauty and terror, grievous sins and second chances A deftly woven thriller from the popular author of the Rock Harbor novels I hated this book I guessed the supposed twist ending, the author did not do enough research to write from police standpoint, not to mention all of the glaring errors I could not get past how unbelievable this story is I will probably not read another book by this author, that s how awful it was I m overly sorry I paid for this book at all, even with it being in the used book store. I honestly can t tell if it was the story or the awful narrator that makes this book 2 star worthy Her reading was far too sing songy, and the emotions for many scenes or conversations were all wrong You don t read a tense moment with a lilt Often she sounded like she was reading a children s story rather than a suspense drama I ve heard Devon O Day before and each time I ve said something similar I need to make note of her name and avoid future audiobooks.The story was okay, and it was nic I honestly can t tell if it was the story or the awful narrator that makes this book 2 star worthy Her reading was far too sing songy, and the emotions for many scenes or conversations were all wrong You don t read a tense moment with a lilt Often she sounded like she was reading a children s story rather than a suspense drama I ve heard Devon O Day before and each time I ve said something similar I need to make note of her name and avoid future audiobooks.The story was okay, and it was nice being reintroduced to old friends from other books by this author, but too many things bothered me besides the narrator Early on I guessed Gideon s identity by his age compared to the others presented as possibilities Too easy.Now if someone has grabbed youtimes than you can count, and you know someone is hunting you, and you ve had threats of violence, mutilation and death, and you ve seen the killer s handiwork on other women s bodies, do you hide yourself, and be as careful as possible, staying always in the company of your protectors Or do you go out in public, walk places alone, go geocaching in the woods so you could be grabbed Oh, of course, you ignore all common sense and do the very thing you shouldn t that might save your life Ugh Then there was her state police captain husband who says he s there to protect her, but keeps taking off for no especially good reason Each time he leaves, something happens How many times does he leave her in danger before he gets it And her friends who are also concerned for her safety also leave her alone and are delayed long enough for something tragic to happen Ugh x 2 Granted, these all lend a certain amount of tension and drama, but still, it s frustrating to read events like this and not want to shake the characters Plus it all feels so contrived.Even the ending wasn t great It was wrapped up with a bow too easily.Nope The execution of what could have been a fairly decent story just didn t do it for me
