I've now read all her books! This one was great too. Ellie goes undercover at a dating service where women are being killed. She not only finds someone for herself, but she and her new partner tract the killer. All the characters and their stories come together perfectly. There are twists and turns that keep your interest. It is a very compelling read, very well planned out and so very enjoyable.
I actually got the book today and read it today, well actually finished it at midnight, just had to find out what happened.
I anxiously look forward to her next book, she's one author you are never disappointed in.

I love, love, love James Lee Burke's novels, so I had to see what Alafair could do, and I started with this one. She has talent, for sure. I'm enjoying the characters and the story very much. Her style is not the least bit similar to her father's, but that's OK. I will read more. I did think it was amusing to have a little grammar lesson in this novel about pronouns and antecedents, but not realize that plural acronyms do not use apostrophes...EMTs and IDs, Alafair, instead of EMT's and ID's.

This is my first Alafair Burke book, I'll keep reading this series- I think Ellie Hatcher is a great character. The ending seemed a little abrupt to me, otherwise I enjoyed the action and the humor throughout the book.

Alafair Burke takes a break from the Samantha Kinkaid series and introduces Ellie Hatcher. Hatcher is a NYPD detective - garden variety felonies are her bread and butter. But the deaths of two young women has a veteran homicide detective asking for her by name. Her name is well known, at least in police circles - her dad spent most of his career chasing a serial killer. Her father's death was suspicious and Ellie carries some scars.

The deaths of the young women seem connected to a popular online dating website. Hatcher and her temporary homicide partner try to access information from the company but are strangely blocked from their pursuit. Ellie signs up for the site in an attempt to screen the men they know contacted one of their victims.

Hatcher and McIlroy run down a few blind alleys and several road blocks are thrown up to the investigation. The characters are a little thin but there is promise for a series. Burke's writing is still worth the read.

3.5 stars and I will check any future installments.

I ordered the wrong book by mistake! I decided it was too much trouble to return and started to read this. It was one of those books where I wanted to peek at the end.....it was that riveting and suspenseful! Already ordered this author’s second book in this series. Glad I found another author to follow!

Ellie Hatcher is an intuitive cop that pursues clues wherever they lead dispite outside interference. She is smart, funny, and very good at her job,, and has an interesting personal life as well. These books, of which this is the first, are definitely good reads.

I read many mysteries and I do think this one was entertaining. I liked the voice of her character, and the pace of the story. I was, however not riveted. It wasn't one of those books you can't put down because you need to know who was doing the dastardly deeds. I saw Ms. Burke at a writiers conference, and she is a warm and delightful speaker. I will try another couple of her novels as I quite liked her. So many writers keep improvie the more they write, so I'll try again and see.
I really enjoyed this book. The plot was complicated, and kept me engaged to the end. I'll definitely read the next book in the series.
