Lately I’ve been reading a lot of romance novels so I was quite happy to read a murder mystery for a bit of a change of pace. There is a killer on the lose dubbed “The Rainy Day Killer” because he waits until it is raining to capture his victims – offering them the protection of his umbrella. Then he rapes and strangles them, dumping their body a few days later. The rain also helps wash away the evidence so it has been difficult for the police to catch him. After 2 victims showed up and they seem to be getting closer to figuring out who he is, the killer threatens to capture Detective Karen Stainer as his next victim!
The Rainy Day Killer seems to be quite smart – he is always one step above the police and even sends them videos to taunt them after each of the kills. But once he threatens Detective Stainer and it seems like he is going to try and capture her at her wedding – all bets are off. Oh, and did I mention she’s marrying an FBI Agent? There will certainly be enough men in uniform around to foil his plan should he try anything – but the killer is cocky and thinks that he can outsmart them all.
But can he?
I know, but I won’t let you know the ending of the book! Be sure to check out The Rainy Day Killer if you want to find out!
I really liked this book. It was easy to read, I liked the characters and it was a story that I could get involved in. I was rooting for the good guys and hoping that the killer would mess up somewhere and leave some evidence that the police could work with and catch this guy! If you’re into serial killers or murder mystery books I think that you will enjoy this book!
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to participate in the book tour. I was not otherwise compensated.
