The Stranger You Know by Andrea Kane
Narrator: Angela Dawe
Length: 10 hrs and 35 mins


Date Read: January 2014

Goodreads

It begins with a chilling phone call. And ends with another girl dead.

College-age girls with long red hair are being brutally murdered, posed like victims in a film noir. Each crime scene is eerily similar to the twisted fantasy of a serial offender now serving thirty years to lifeβ€”a criminal brought to justice with the help of Casey Woods and her investigative team, Forensic Instincts.

Call. Kill. Repeat.

But the similarities are more than one psychopath's desire to outdo another. As more red-haired victims are added to the body count, it becomes clear that each one has been chosen because of a unique connection to Casey….

Now the Forensic Instincts team must uncover the identity of a serial killer before his ever-tightening circle of death closes in on Casey, the ultimate target. As the stalker methodically moves in on his prey, his actions make two things clear: He knows everything about Casey. And he won't stop until she's dead.

First Thought when Finished: The Stranger You Know by Andrea Kane ended up being an amazing thrill ride that had me biting my nails till the very end!

Story Thoughts: I have to admit upfront that I love the Forensic Instincts series. They are brilliantly written and well plotted. The Stranger You Know was no exception. I liked how this one gave us the back story on Casey. The whole team was involved and I loved how each puzzle piece fell into place. No one was safe and there were times I was in genuine fear for their lives (and sanity). Needless to say the story just rocked and I highly recommend it!

Character Thoughts: The team at Forensic Insticts is each different in personality and temperament. They each bring something to the story but it is the women that ruled this story. Casey was the center and she was the perfect choice for this story. I also was impressed with Clair. She is often thought of as the “nice” one but she has backbone and gumption! Overall all the characters were fantastic and I can’t wait for the next one.

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Angela Dawe / Length: 10 hrs and 35 mins

Angela “freaking” Dawe brought it once again. If you have been following my narrator reviews, you know she is one of my favorites. She brought it to the Forensic Instincts team!

Final Thoughts: Can’t wait for the next one.

      This is one of those series that I stumbled on and now I am just counting down book to book. They don’t even end up on cliffies but I love the characters!

    • Felicia S

      She does write Historical Romance so you are not wrong. I haven’t read any of those but I think they will probably be good. She writes great characters!

    I love thriller/mystery novels. I’m definitely going to have to check this series out! I hadn’t ever heard of it, but I’m liking what you’ve got to say about it. This is going on my list for sure.

    I feel like it’s been a long time since I’ve been in a thriller. I think Gretchen Lowell was probably the last and I still haven’t read Let Me Go. I’m so behind! If I ever get caught up I will have to keep this series in mind.

    Love books that focus on new cases with each story, that type of series setup never fails to keep me entertained. Like the In Death Series. I can read those forever (and I apparently will be given there’s 30 some-odd books in the series). Need to read these books!

    • Felicia S

      These are good! DUDE I am so behind the In Death series in fact I am about to skip ahead to the latest one and then start reading them out of order. I am sure I can do this LOL

    I’m seriously thinking about adding some new genres to my TBL. I’m becoming a little tired of the whole supernatural thing (I hope is just a genre slump) πŸ™ I think that’s the reason why lately I’ve found myself drawn to contemporary titles.
    I have to keep this one is mind, I’m sure Angela does a wonderful job.
    Thanks Felicia πŸ™‚
