Summary (cr: goodreads)

Beautiful killer Gretchen Lowell tightens her grip on Detective Archie Sheridan in Let Me GoNew York Timesbestseller Chelsea Cain’s newest nail-biter.

Detective Archie Sheridan is about to receive a birthday present from the last person he ever wants to see again: Gretchen Lowell.

The investigation into Jack Reynolds's drug enterprise is heating up and has Archie heading off to attend a masked Halloween party on Jack Reynolds's island, where Susan is a reluctant guest. But the next morning one of the guests is found murdered, and Archie quickly realizes that nothing is what it seems. Only one thing is clear: Gretchen is back, and she's been closer than anyone thinks. On Halloween Eve, with time running out, Archie will have to risk everything, and choose wisely whom to trust, if he and his loved ones are going to live through the night.

 My Review: (also in goodreads)

Lookback: Heartsick, Sweetheart, Evil at Heart, The Night Season, Kill Me Twice

Some would say that they are done with this series and that the cat and mouse chase between Gretchen and Archie is dragging after 6 books. Yes, I agree to those rants especially at the last book where Gretchen miraculously once again escapes the psychiatric ward but somehow still am addicted to this series. This story focuses on another angle of the Archie/Gretchen world and its about the corrupt family of Leo Reynolds who is currently dating Susan Ward. Seriously, this book series seems like a long television series not that I am complaining...sort of. The plot focuses on Leo's work as DEA and it circles around the private island of Jack Reynolds, father of one "alleged" victim of Gretchen Lowell. Of course, there would be Gretchen's return to the scene like a sleuth in the night. Gretchen's fascination with Archie is beyond comprehension. What I didn't like though is that adding to her exceptional serial killing and planning skills is the ability to hack a computer and plan it ahead, that was not normal but it worked for this story. As for the latest cliffhanger, what I'm looking forward the most is Archie and Susan's story. They obviously care about each other and they have the chemistry so I think this would be the series' will they/won't they. 

Till the next read...
