8 Down by Kimberley Woodhouse: Book Review

  *Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.

8 bodies down.

8 more lives at stake.

Investigator Carrie Kintz is new blood with the Alaska Bureau of Investigation in Anchorage. But with a serial killer on the loose, there's no easing into the job. It's sink or swim. The only clues to help law enforcement stop this madman are the taunts he drops into crossword puzzles across the country--always in the same 8 DOWN position.

Carrie is desperate to prove her worth to the force and the community by catching the killer. But when she discovers signs that these deaths are just the tip of the iceberg in a frighteningly elaborate cyberattack, it's time to admit she needs help.

Calling in security specialist Scott Patteson for his expertise seems like the right move--until Carrie realizes that he may be a dangerous distraction for her heart. With her faith fading in the face of horror and uncertainty and her career in danger of ending, this is no time for flirtation.

But with a killer who is determined to prove that he's smarter than everyone else, it may be impossible to fight both the madman and their feelings for each other . . .

8 Down
is the second book in the Alaskan Cyber Hunters series. While you may be able to enjoy this as a standalone, I definitely feel like you will get the most out of the story by reading this one in order. The stories are connected and reading both will give you the best overall picture as to what's going on. 

Whew, what a read! First of all, I think anytime the author lets us see into the mind of the bad guy, it adds a certain element of creepiness to a story... which is definitely true here. Aside from that though, this series deals with cyber-attacks... it's quite frightening to think of all the ways a cyber-attack could occur with the devices we use every single day. This again adds to the creepiness of it all. This book is clever and thrilling... and will definitely keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. Throw in a romance and it's definitely a wonderful read that I really enjoyed. It does end on a bit of a cliffhanger, leaving me anxious to see what will happen next. 

If you enjoy Christian suspense, you will definitely want to add this one to your TBR.
