RS Review: The Stranger You Know (Forensic Instincts) Hardcover

I've finished "The Stranger You Know" the 3rd book in Forensic Instincts series by Andrea Kane.

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

College-age girls with long red hair. Brutally murdered, they're 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 life — a criminal brought to justice with the help of 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 — a connection that grows closer and closer to her.

Now the Forensic Instincts team must race to uncover the identity of a serial killer before his ever-tightening circle of death closes in on Casey as the ultimate target. As the stalker methodically moves in on his prey, his actions make one thing clear: he knows everything about Casey. And Casey realizes that this psychopathic won't stop until he makes sure she's dead.

My Review:

Young college girls with red hair are being brutally killed and found posed like in film noir which is the signature of a serial killer currently in jail. Forensics Instincts are brought in to help a dying man find his daughter and as they investigate they find a connection linking to Casey.

The copycat serial killer seems to know everything about Casey and is determined to make her his ultimate goal.

I really enjoy the development growth of Casey and Kyle's relationship because they both understand and respect each other.  Glad they both finally said the L word to each other.

I find Claire and Ryan's growing relationship quite funny because they are popular opposites of each other and all they do is fight.  I believe they are actually in love but deny they are though they both know it's not casual between them.
