Elliot Mills comes face-to-face with evil in this follow-up to Fair Game and Fair Play from bestselling author Josh Lanyon
One final game of cat and mouse…
Ex–FBI agent Elliot Mills thought he was done with the most brutal case of his career. The Sculptor, the serial killer he spent years hunting, is finally in jail. But Elliot’s hope dies when he learns the murderer wasn’t acting alone. Now everyone is at risk once again—thanks to a madman determined to finish his partner’s gruesome mission.
When the lead agent on the case, Special Agent Tucker Lance, goes missing, Elliot knows it’s the killer at work. After all, abducting the love of his life is the quickest way to hurt him.
The chances of finding Tucker are all but impossible without the help of the Sculptor—but the Sculptor is in no position to talk. Critically injured in a prison fight, he lies comatose and dying while the clock ticks down. Elliot has no choice but to play this killer’s twisted game and hope he can find Tucker in time.
I haven’t read a LOT of Josh Lanyon’s books, but I do enjoy her writing style. I just need to be in a certain mood to read mystery/suspense along with my romance. And with Lanyon, the romance tends to take a back seat to the suspense.
I definitely like this couple a lot more than Adrien and Jake. Adrien, but more so Jake, made me ragey, and the doormat behavior was off the charts. Those books were still well written, though, so that’s why I decided to give this series a go. Elliot and Tucker are much more rational and loyal than I found Adrien and Jake to be. And tons more romantic.
In this installment of the series, I was missing a bit of the romance, however. Tucker goes missing, you see, so the togetherness that I’ve loved so much in the previous two books wasn’t there for me.
Elliot is, once again, working with the FBI and local PDs to catch a possible accomplice to The Sculptor. His relationship with his dad was still a breath of fresh air, no matter how much his dad and I would NOT be able to have a productive conversation, and I still love his character anyway.
I have a feeling this isn’t the end for Tucker and Elliot. It’s a refreshing series that MUST be read in order. If you’re in the mood for a suspenseful romance, I’d definitely recommend this one.
