Book Name: Copy Cat
Series: Kitt Lundgren
Blurb: Five years ago, three young victims were found murdered, posed like little angels. No witnesses, no evidence left behind. The Sleeping Angel Killer called his despicable acts ‘the perfect crimes.’ The case nearly destroyed homicide detective Kitt Lundgren’s career–because she let the killer get away.
Now the Sleeping Angel Killer is back.
But Kitt notices something different about this new rash of killings–a tiny variation that suggests a copycat killer may be re-creating the original ‘perfect crimes.’ Then the unthinkable happens. The Sleeping Angel Killer himself approaches Kitt with a bizarre offer: he will help her catch his copycat.
Kitt must decide whether to place her trust in a murderer–or risk falling victim to a fiend who has taken the art of the perfect murder to horrific new heights.
Review: This was hard for me to get into because I just wasn’t much of a fan of the characters and how they came across. Kitt is so beyond messed up that it isn’t all that believable that she is still a cop. M.C. comes across as one of these horribly competitive women who can’t stand it when another woman is in charge or looks better than them on paper. Again, I just don’t like her as a cop. Both kind of come across as not so smart, either on the job or in their personal lives. I found both of their characters annoying and not all that interesting to me because of it. There was also this all around lack of professionalism with both of their characters and to some extent how the police work plays out that grated on my nerves.
I just wasn’t much of a fan overall. This wasn’t bad and I did think there were some decent parts, but the parts I didn’t like kept me from feeling as if this was anything other than just an okay story.
