Roundtable Reviews features little more than book reviews and book news. We don't just stick to one genre. We have varying tastes and may be after a heartwarming romance one day, a new adult novel the next, and a creepy horror the day after that. Our book reviews always take one thought into consideration -- Would I pay the asking price for this book?

Meticulous planning goes
into his abductions. He stalks and patiently waits before he strikes.
Then he holds his victims for an inordinate length of time before he
kills them. This is the sociopath Keye Street, a ex-FBI profiler and
private investigator, has gone to a town 90 miles outside of Atlanta
The remains of teenage
girls have been found in the woods outside the town and the local
authorities led by Sheriff Ken Meltzer, have agreed that some outside
assistance and expertise would be in order.
As Keye tries to
connect the sparse pieces of evidence, a third girl goes missing. Now
the stakes are much higher; in fact, this almost appears to be a
challenge. “Stop me if you can but time is running out!” might
well be the killer’s taunt.
As she works Keye
has an uncanny feeling that she is being watched by more than just
the local law establishment. She also has to gear her investigation
up drastically and figure out who the madman is before another teen
lies dead in the woods.
Williams’ fiction has been called “addictive” and her previous
“Stranger” novels have been called “powerfully human” as well
as “brutally funny” and she’s been also lauded for creating
stories with “delicious final twists”. All these accolades
certainly apply to this latest captivating thriller.
