I have three deadly problems:
- I’ve seriously offended a maniacal killer.
- I just had a bullet removed from my brain.
- My new daughter is growing up too fast—and she's in the line of fire.
Living on an obscure, technology-free island off California means safety from the murderer who hunts Kellen Adams and her new family…or does it? Family time becomes terror time, until Kellen finds herself alone and facing an all-too-familiar psychopath. Only one can survive, and Kellen knows who must win…and who must die.
This is book three in the Cape Charade series. I have not read the prior two books. I say this book can be read as a stand alone novel; despite the fact that I did feel my relationship with Kellen might have suffered a bit from not having read the prior novels. The reason that I do say it can be read as a stand alone as there was nothing really from the prior novels that distracted from the events in this book.
The story started out good. I was very intrigued. My feelings keep up this way for a few chapters.
Than, my vibe for the book went from excited to "just ok" and stayed that way for a good portion of the book. The latter third of the last part of the book is where it picked up and wrapped everything up. There was so much going on in this latter part of the story. If the rest of the story had the same intensity I would have been in a better place with my feelings towards this book. Yet, this will not be the last time I read a Christina Dodd book.

Series STARRED reviews from Booklist"From the unforgettable heroine with a past to the incisively etched cast of secondary characters to the brilliantly imaginative plot, Dodd is at her most wildly entertaining, wickedly witty best." -Booklist STARRED review on DEAD GIRL RUNNING
"Featuring an unforgettable protagonist…who makes Jack Reacher look like a slacker when it comes to dispatching trouble, and an ingenious plot that includes plenty of white-knuckle twists and turns as well as some touching moments of mother-daughter bonding." -Booklist STARRED review on WHAT DOESN'T KILL HER
“Dodd continues her addictively readable Cape Charade series featuring Kellen Adams with another white-knuckle tale that simply begs to be inhaled in one sitting. With a fascinating island setting that includes a spooky old mansion, a secondary storyline involving World War II, and an antagonist who could give Villanelle from Killing Eve a pointer or two, this is Dodd at her brilliant best.” -Booklist STARRED review on STRANGERS SHE KNOWS
Read an excerpt:
New York Times bestselling author Christina Dodd writes "edge-of-the-seat suspense" (Iris Johansen) with "brilliantly etched characters, polished writing, and unexpected flashes of sharp humor that are pure Dodd" (ALA Booklist). Her fifty-eight books have been called "scary, sexy, and smartly written" by Booklist and, much to her mother's delight, Dodd was once a clue in the Los Angeles Times crossword puzzle.
