Overview

A Killer's Tracks. . .

Missouri detective Claire Morgan is eager to get back to work after recuperating from injuries sustained on her last job. But the missing persons case that welcomes her home in the dead of winter soon turns more twisted and treacherous than Lake of the Ozarks' icy mountain roads. . .

Can Only Lead. . .

The woman's body is found suspended from a tree overlooking a local school. She is bleeding from the head, still alive--but not for long. Someone wanted Professor Simone Classon to suffer as much as possible before she died, making sure the victim had a perfect view of her colleagues and students on the campus below as she succumbed to the slow-working poison in her veins. . .

To Dark Places. . .

Frigid temperatures and punishing snows only make the investigation more difficult. And then the death threats begin--unnerving incidents orchestrated to send Claire a deadly message. Now, as she edges closer to the truth, Claire risks becoming entangled in a maniac's web--and the stuff of her own worst nightmares. . .

I could not put this book down. Dark Places is an apt title for this book as the story line does indeed go into many dark and scary places. Once again Linda Ladd does an outstanding job of building her characters and drawing her readers into a twisted tale of murder, mental illness, obsession and passion. The lead detective Clair Morgan and her love interest Nicholas Black are an interesting contrast of personalities that work well together. I highly recommend this series to anyone who enjoys a good thriller.

This book will keep you guessing and you won't want to put it down. I had to force myself to stop reading it before going to sleep so I could sleep. Read "Head to Head" first. Linda Ladd does an awesome job in the suspense thriller category!

Linda Ladd is one of the best new authors I've read. She writes an engrossing story, full of believable characters and wonderful action. She doesn't try to impress the reader with an overload of metaphors and similes (although I'm sure she is perfectly capable of doing so), but instead strives to entertain, engaging and maintaining the reader's interest in the story. Great job--and the series leaves you wanting more!

This is the first book of hers I've read. I see it is the second in the series so I'll have to get that to read. Love her writing. Keeps you wondering as she goes from chapter to chapter, past to present. Great book. Highly recommend.

I have been reading all of Linda Ladd's books and really like her writing style. Her chapters go from present to past which keeps you guessing as to who the "bad guy" is.

Loved this book. Loved the series! Start with Head to Head.

This is the second Linda Ladd book for me and I must say that it was just as good as the first. A few minor discrepancies (like she took her Glock off safety...Glocks don't have a safety) but none the less a deep thriller. Going to the 3rd in the series. Can't wait.

Fast-paced thriller about Missouri best friends who become serial killers. Creepy use of poisonous spiders and snakes to torture and kill their human prey.

Linda Ladd does it again - her writing sucks you right into the gritty world of Detective Clair Morgan and the ritzy world of her boyfriend and sometimes helper, Black. The action is fast paced, the plotting great, the twists many. This book will keep you guessing. I highly recommend this book for mystery fans.

Great book! 3rd book I've read by this author and they are all excellent. She gives clues, but the endings are always full of twists and suspense!
