Book Description
COME TO METhe first victim is found in a snow-covered Philadelphia field. Detective Vito Ciccotelli enlists the aid of archaeologist Sophie Johannsen to determine exactly what lies beneath the frozen ground. Despite years of unearthing things long buried, nothing can prepare Sophie for the matrix of graves dug with chilling precision. The victims buried there haunt her. But the empty graves terrify her-the killer isn’t done yet.SCREAM FOR MEHe is cold and calculating, the master of a twisted game. Even with Vito and Sophie hot on his trail, he will not stop. One more empty grave must be filled, and one last scream must be heard-the scream of an archaeologist who is too close for comfort and too near to resist…DIE FOR ME

From Batty’s Girl
I have quite a few books to review today, books that I’ve read since the last book I reviewed and didn’t get around to posting about.  Some of these books I read a few weeks ago, so forgive me if my review is short.

This book was pretty good, but for me at least, predictable.  I had pretty much figured out who the killer was after a while but still enjoyed the twists and turns of the plot.  Even more so, I liked the twists and turns of the killer’s mind though… that’s what I felt was most enjoyable about this book… no the relationship between Sophie and Vito (marginally better than average) or the supporting characters, but rather the icky bad guy’s mind!

Hmm, what does that say about me?

It says that you like to hang out on the dark side of the street. So I guess this one is a passer…

The URL for your 360’s blog is bad…

Thanks Nikko. It certainly was. Give it a go, it should work okay now.
