The book is written in the first person and told from the perspective of Keye Street. All the stages of the story also interspersed with short passages of dialogue from the murderer's eyes. It confused me at least until I realized how the story was progressing.

According to the blurb, Keye Street is causing trouble for the FBI.
She works in the field of criminal profiling and is excellent in her area of practice. She had two academic degrees and was a rising star in the skies of the FBI. Besides, she is beautiful-looking, and with her sharp senses, she knows how to read well what is happening in the minds of the most dangerous criminals.

And now she was on her own.

Keye is also an alcoholic in rehab and addicted to adrenaline. She surrounds herself with unknown types and wants to sleep with her best friend, though for the time being she is still sleeping with her ex-husband. There is also a fear that develops in the reader that Keye is violent, and perhaps even dangerous. But in Atlanta, Georgia, a serial killer now turns, and the local police need Keye's services to help them.

I expected by the blurb that Keye would use her sharp senses, which would reflect in detail in the book. In practice, It did not come to fruition. On the other hand, there are too detailed descriptions of the horrific crimes, including sexual abuse.

To the author's credit, she maintains the tension throughout the book. It's a good book, a bit different from the usual style. The plot is a little slower, the story told from a feminine point of view, the narrator also deals with other investigations as part of her role as a private investigator and tells about them as well. The end was surprising and unexpected.

I enjoyed reading, but it's worth noting one thing that the story is very detailed and hard to read for some people. ( )

Author Amanda Kyle Williams has displayed sheer brilliance in her portrayal of detective Keye Street. Making her as memorable as detectives such as Holmes, Stephanie Plum and others, she's bound to become one of your favorite crime-fighting divas ever! Smart, witty, humorous and a complete charmer - Keye serves as the narrator of the novel.

The plot of this novel is ever-engaging. There is nary a moment that passes where you don't feel the adrenaline rush. There is a killer on the loose in the great city of Atlanta, and Keye is hired as a private investigator to help solve a series of macabre and gruesome murders, all the while trying hard not to fall off the wagon as a recovering alcoholic. I absolutely loved this novel, especially since it takes place in the city of Atlanta, a city I absolutely love. There are a few things in the novel that I didn't particularly care for, but I liked it enough to want to give it no less than 4.5 stars. But since half stars aren't possible, I gave it 5 stars. I think we'll definitely be hearing more from this author, and I cannot wait to read more from her...because there are certainly some questions I have for author Amanda Kyle Williams. Needless to say, I will definitely be reading more by this amazing author. ( )

If you're a fan of Karin Slaughter, you'll love the Keye Street series by Amanda Kyle Williams. The characters are complex but totally relatable. Action takes place in and around the Atlanta, GA area with spot-on descriptions. Best of all, I didn't know "who did it" until the very end. This book will having you rooting for the main character despite her flaws, and keep you guessing. Can't wait to read the next two books in this series! ( )
