Is the first book that I chose to read this year the rip-roaring read that I was hoping for?
Unfortunately not. However, it is still worth mentioning as you may enjoy it more than I did . (Based on the reviews, I am in the minority on this one.)
I found the story interesting, yet it never seemed to reach it's full potential. I will say that it is worth reading for the ending alone though.
Here is the book's synopsis in case you are interested:
It was supposed to be just one more ridealong, a night when high schooler Melissa Latham accompanies her father on his patrol. But when a serial killer targets them for a dark, disturbing game, the night turns into a high-speed chase where there is no prize for second place.
They have to find a killer before he murders the next one of their friends.
They have to find a killer before they are caught and charged for the murder of the men he's already killed.
They have to find a killer... before he finds them.
