From The Manufacturer

Three Chicago women have been found strangled, embalmed, and posed as if still alive. Doubting the findings of the local PD’s profiler, The FBI calls on forensic psychologist Zoe Bentley to investigate. Zoe quickly gets off on the wrong foot with her new partner, Special Agent Tatum Gray. Zoe’s a hunter, intense and focused; Tatum’s a smug maverick with little respect for the rules. Together, they must descend into a serial killer’s psyche and untangle his twisted fantasies, or more women will die. But when the contents of three inconspicuous envelopes reveal a chilling connection to gruesome murders from Zoe’s childhood, suddenly the hunter becomes the hunted.

Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

What it does well is present the killers not as monsters but as men --- men who have a severe dark side and are operating amongst fellow humans, remaining unseen.
The writing is spot on, and the story flows well. Still, the details that emerged kept me totally focused on the plot, and in suspense pretty much all the time.
What I especially liked about A Killer’s Mind was the characters. Also I like stories where a man and woman hate each other at first sight, and then warm to one another.
Pacing is steady, with a good mix of humor to offset the dark topic.
This novel is a tight thriller with enough surprises to keep the reader guessing.
The plot is good and reasonably twisty.

What reviewers didn't like

What I had problems with was how Zoe’s character worked into the plot. We’re supposed to believe that an accomplished, adult professional woman would withhold what she believes to be material evidence in an ongoing homicide investigation, because she’s afraid of a repeat of childhood embarrassment.
The author drastically overuses the words ‘bit’ and ‘very’. This cheapened his writing ‘a bit’. It’s an easy fix, because his writing is quite strong.
The only weakness I can point out is about the points of view. The killer, Zoe, and Tatum are the main points of view and they work. There are three other single chapter points of view that are not as successful.
