I received a copy of this novel for review from NetGalley
In Native American lore, the Huntress Moon is the second full moon in October. It is under this moon that a lone female assassin is believed to be committing vigilante murders.
FBI Agent Matthew Roarke is a former profiler for the BAU (Behavioral Analysis Unit), trying hard to solve Organized Crimes and fight his calling and gift as a profiler. Somehow, though, this case seems to find him when he watches one of his undercover agents die in a freak accident. Later, he learns it was no accident.
This serial killer is smart, wily, calculating, something that Roarke is both frustrated and fascinated by. As he digs through similar cases, Matthew realizes that this savage killer has a deep secret from her childhood and gifts of her own, a gift that drives her to kill the Monsters. She hunts Monsters.
This book was a moderately paced read and though it could use a quick run through with an editor, well written– descriptive when the scene allowed for it (especially in flashbacks) but straightforward when necessary. I like for thrillers to get to the point and not linger on the unnecessary. The story is convoluted and deep with a few twists– the kind I like. Though I was a little concerned when the book started, I was soon deeply engrossed in this book.
About to start book two of, I believe a trilogy.
