He told her to run. And she did. As fast as her legs would take her, but it wasn’t fast enough…

The bodies of a husband and wife are found in a patch of woods in small-town, rural Arkansas by a neighboring farmer. They were shot with an arrow, gutted, and left to bleed out. The killer also removed their eyes and replaced them with large cat’s-eye marbles. The murder method and signature are too bizarre to point toward an isolated incident, and FBI Special Agent Brandon Fisher recognizes this right away. His boss with the Behavioral Analysis Unit, Supervisory Special Agent Jack Harper, confirms that he’s crossed paths with this killer several years ago, and he has a voracious appetite for blood. In fact, Jack’s seen his work firsthand—six times, three couples, in three states.

Brandon, Jack, and the rest of the team head to Arkansas for one purpose: to bring down the ruthless and elusive serial killer who calls himself “the Leopard.” Versatile and adaptive, this madman hunts his prey like a wild, hungry cat—tracking them, then striking with swift viciousness. But just as the FBI think they might finally be getting closer to the Leopard’s true identity, he adapts his method and starts killing people faster than ever before.

Racing to catch up, and struggling to get one step ahead, the FBI comes to uncover buried family secrets that aid the investigation—while at the same time, flipping it on its head. Suddenly, the hunters are now the hunted. And while this case has haunted Jack since he joined the Bureau, things are about get more personal and dangerous than he ever would have imagined. If he and his team aren’t careful, one of them—or someone they love—may become the Leopard’s next victim.

A totally gripping and heart-pounding crime thriller. Perfect for fans of Lisa Regan, Robert Dugoni and Catherine Coulter.

My Review:

One More Kill is not the first book by Carolyn Arnold that I have read and it won’t be the last. I love every book by Carolyn Arnold that I have read but the Brandon Fisher books hold a very special place in my heart. I love the writing style. I love the profiling. One More Kill reminded me of that TV show Prodigal Son with Tom Payne. In the Prodigal Son, Malcolm Bright (Tom Payne) is an FBI profiler too.

I love that we get the crime at the very beginning of the story. I like following the characters as they follow up on each and every clue that leads them closer and closer to the killer. I like that we know who the victims are, where they are killed and how they are killed but what we don’t know is who did the killing or why.

While One More Kill is a fast read it does have a slow build-up as they say that keeps you glued to the pages as each and every clue takes you closer to the killer. Each and every book just gets better and better. I can’t wait for more Brandon Fisher books.

We get the story from different points of view. We even get to see the killer's point of view as the murders are taking place. We get to go inside the mind of a killer so to speak.

I highly recommend One More Kill to anyone who loves a good Hard-Boiled mystery! One-click your copy of One More Kill today for another engaging mystery!
