Dead Cold

Title: DEAD COLD

Author: Jennifer Chase
Publisher: JEC Press
Pages: 326
Genre: Crime Thriller
BOOK BLURB:
What happens when one California community has a disturbing spike in homicides? It catapults cops into a deadly game of murder. Frozen human body parts hideously displayed at the crime scenes offers a horrifying interpretation that only a sadistic serial killer could design—and execute.
On the hunt for a complex serial killer, vigilante detective Emily Stone must face her most daring case yet. Stone’s proven top-notch profiling skills and forensic expertise may not be enough this time.
Young and ambitious, Detective Danny Starr, catches the homicide cases and discovers that it will test everything he knows about police work and the criminal mind. Can he handle these escalating cases or will the police department have to call in reinforcements—the FBI.
Emily Stone’s covert team pushes with extreme urgency to unravel the grisly clues, while keeping their identities hidden from the police. With one last-ditch effort, Stone dangles someone she loves as bait to draw out the killer. She then forces the killer out of their comfort zone with her partner Rick Lopez, and with help from a longtime friend Jordan Smith. A revelation of the serial killer’s identity leaves the team with volatile emotions that could destroy them.
The killer continues to taunt and expertly manipulate the police, as well as Stone’s team, and as they run out of time—they leave behind everyone and everything—in Dead Cold.

My Review
Dead Cold by Jennifer Chase was a well-written book that I greatly enjoy reading. I found the serial killer plot line to be very interesting especially with the protagonist being a vigilante detective. Emily Stone was the perfect character to fill this role and I loved how the author made her feel like a real person instead of just a one dimensional character. I found the ending to be rather surprising, but it worked perfectly for the book.
