Sigh. For a supposed bad ass, the MC has way too many moments of WTF are you doing". Seriously, I loudly sighed out loud several times. Like you know you are chasing down a serial killer, why the hell would you chase down that guy all by your damn self?! UGH, frustrating.

This was fast-paced and had me at the edge of my seat -- sometimes literally! Although I found the heroine's self-doubt and shame were at times just incongruent with who she is now. Some bits were easily predictable like Bianca's sassy comebacks and other bits were downright despicable (anytime the story was told from the villain's perspective). Bring on book two!
