Free to Kill FBI Agent Katie Freeman s life has been upended After being reassigned from Louisiana to middle Tennessee her new bosses suspect that her reassignment is due to an indiscretion with her previous part
Painful I think I deserve a gold star for making it to the end of this book It was an odd mixture of themes the instruments of medieval torture, both horrified and disgusted me the police procedural was so slow it was almost as painful as the killer s choice of weapons There was the inevitable will they, won t they scenario between the male female investigators then, our heroine had a deep, dark secret from her childhood There was so much going on, I missed any clues to the killer, and his motiv [...]
Great first book Enjoyed the strong female character as the lead in Free to Kill Good story Couldn t put it down
Great readI love that there are still so many unanswered questions about the main character Very unique backstory that keeps you asking questions until the very end Can t wait to read the next one.
Utterly bemused by the five star ratings for this The good I liked the beginning It laid down an intriguing story I liked Katie, although I wish we could have a female lead in a story who isn t described I liked the small town feel of the story The medieval torture devices made the story impossible to put down in the beginning I felt it flowed ok The bad so police apparently do nothing with the torture device aside from describing it to various third parties This was the biggest plot hole to me [...]
I liked that this book was not the typical torture murder mystery Plot showcases a strong female character with a mysterious pass and a supporting male character and as a team work very well together.I liked that the murderer used different torture devices to punish his victims even though religious beliefs were behind the torture.I would recommend this book to anyone who likes the murder mystery type plot I was interested from the start of the book and did find it somewhat hard to put down I wo [...]

Easy to read but at the same time keeping you alert Hard to put it down, well written and captivating Loved it.The characters are vibrant, with the women of the church, you can feel the diversity of human weaknesses as well as the effort they are doing to present the image of people who care Katie has a lot to deal with as well, while Michael seems to have everything under control Very pleasant read.
IntriguingOnce you accept that Katie is a bit wooden, and that s she s purposely written this way, you enjoy her character The story was enthralling, keeping me involved The torture device details was fascinating, setting this apart from other small town murder mysteries Looking forward to Book 2.
This was a good suspense about an FBI agent, Katie Freeman, and her partner following the trail of a serial killer This is different than most serial killers, however, in that he uses medieval torture devices to kill the women who are his victims.Wow If you like suspense thrillers and gruesome killings this book is a good one This is book 1 of a series which promises to be very good.
Absolutely fantastic book Absolutely fantastic The book takes you in from the moment you start reading I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good mystery and crime I couldn t put it down I hope there will be a sequel that will explain what happened to Katie mom husband and I would love to find out if her and Michael end up together
The title is deceptiveI liked the main character, Katie, and her unique methods of gathering evidence and information about the suspects The contrast between Katie and her partner was fun to read about Characters were well defined and the humor was fun to read about Looking forward to reading the next book.
Fast paced action I really liked the characters Katie is sweet, damaged and smart the perfect combination I liked the way Michael just let her be who she was, tough but fragile All the characters were well drawn and easy to see.It is truly a good book when I am not looking for typo s, or misspelled words.
Love the spirit or agent Katie FreemanThis book had me hooked from page 1 and did not stop till the very end, could not even guess who the killer was Fast read and great characters You won t be disappointed
