Every time Gwen closed her eyes, she saw him in her nightmares. Now her eyes are open, and he’s not going away.
Gwen Proctor won the battle to save her kids from her ex-husband, serial killer Melvin Royal, and his league of psychotic accomplices. But the war isn’t over. Not since Melvin broke out of prison. Not since she received a chilling text…
You’re not safe anywhere now.
Her refuge at Stillhouse Lake has be-come a trap. Gwen leaves her children in the protective custody of a fortified, well-armed neighbor. Now, with the help of Sam Cade, brother of one of Melvin’s victims, Gwen is going hunting. She’s learned how from one of the sickest killers alive.
But what she’s up against is beyond any-thing she feared—a sophisticated and savage mind game calculated to destroy her. As trust beyond her small circle of friends begins to vanish, Gwen has only fury and vengeance to believe in as she closes in on her prey. And sure as the night, one of them will die.
My Review Of
Killman Creek (Stillhouse Lake Series Book 2) by Rachel Caine
This is the second book in the series and you need to read these books in order, need is the key word because these books are intense and addictive! I literally did not want to stop listening as Gwen aka Gina fights for her children, reputation and life. The drama was nonstop terrific! Psychopathic serial killer Melvin continues to track, taunt and threaten Gwen’s carefully crafted new way of life and blows it all to pieces along with the help of Absolum and his minions. I listened in horror as Gwen’s reputation was torched when a video of her was released -fake or not it alienated her from practically everyone including her children. This edition totally torched Gwen and went quickly to the dark side. Melvin is one twisted guy, he finally makes an appearance and his creepiness was almost too much to take. The story focuses on Gwen and at one point I thought of it as a Gwen bashing book but again that is just the author doing a great job with the storytelling. I had no idea who would survive the final scenes and what would happen to Gwen and her family. I would have to say that the end of the book seemed like it was a wrap but we all know that it is too good to be true. I am waiting impatiently for book number three.
If you enjoy a dark, twisted, addictive and well written psychological thriller then these books are for you.
