One of the best installments in the series since Heartsick! You'

One of the best installments in the series since Heartsick! You'd think the twisted relationship between Lowell and Sheridan would get old after 5 books but it in no way does. Cain does a superb job of making each book feel fresh, and I have faith she'll continue to do ...
One of the best installments in the series since Heartsick! You'd think the twisted relationship between Lowell and Sheridan would get old after 5 books but it in no way does. Cain does a superb job of making each book feel fresh, and I have faith she'll continue to do so in the future without disappointing us.

Excellent

I couldn't wait for the new book to be released and it was, as all Chelsea Cain's books are, a treat. The depth of the characters is practically tangible; I especially liked getting to know Bliss and Susan better.

    This book was good enough to make you want to find out whodunit, but I couldn't really take it too seriously. Good entertainment.

    Very good book. Only some connections between characters were no

    Very good book. Only some connections between characters were not
    obvious to me but that is because I did not read the books that preceded
    this one.

    Fast-reading filler

    This was a disappointment. Well-written and paced but lacking in any real umph or character development. This appears to be a set-up/filler book for whatever Cain plans next (I hope). Perhaps some readers will be shocked or moved by one reveal but I found it neither surprising nor filled with sincere emotion. Archie, Harry and Leo are still some of my fave cops but I hope better for them next round. Glad I went to the library for this one.

    Everyone's Favorite Female Serial Killer is Back

    Things are looking up for detective Archie Sheridan at the start of Kill You Twice, the fifth installment in Cain's series. He's off the Vicodin, gaining some weight back and living in a cool loft in the city. There's also a sexy new neighbor who's obviously flirting with him (although there HAS to be more to Rachel than just a love interest role). He can even focus on a new case involving some murders around Portland that have the same calling card. He and the reader have seen little of serial killer Gretchen Lowell who's been locked up in a psychiatric hospital, heavily medicated (wait till you see what they've done to her!). Susan Ward, intrepid former reporter and freelance writer, secretly arranges an interview with Gretchen who drops a couple bombshells that are obviously intended to lure Archie back. Turns out the new murders in the city might have something to do with a former protege of hers named Ryan Motley. And thus the cat and mouse game between the two continues although for much of the book, it appears that Archie may have gained the upper hand. The ending contains a not-so-shocking surprise that was completely necessary for Cain to continue the series which is obviously her intention. I find these books hugely entertaining, but nagging questions are starting to get in the way of my enjoyment. How many times can Susan almost die before being miraculously saved? How much access would a homicide detective really have to a serial killer? Wouldn't it take longer for medication to leave someone's system before being capable of doing THAT? And where'd the razor blade come from when Susan even had to remove her dangly earrings? It's all in the details. Some random thoughts: THAT KISS, wow! and Archie seems to be turning into a bit of a man whore.
