Fourteen years ago, high school track star Sydney Adams was gunned down in Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park. The investigation yielded useless clues, and the case went cold. But homicide detective Augustus Knox never gave up on finding Sydney’s killer. Now, retired from the police force and with only months to live, he enlists the help of private investigator Jocelyn Rush to clear the case once and for all.

Armed with little more than a theory as to who murdered Sydney, Jocelyn tries to lure a killer into the open. But unraveling the mystery means facing off against a cunning psychopath whose ruthlessness knows no bounds. When more bodies start to pile up, Jocelyn has to decide just how far she’s willing to go to catch a cold-blooded killer.

In Cold Blooded, fourteen years ago, high school track star Sydney Adams was gunned down in Fairmount Park. The clues were usless, the investigation went cold. But Augustus Knox never gave up on finding Sydney’s killer. Now he’s retired and only has a few months to live, and enlists the help of Jocelyn Rush to clear the case. Jocelyn only has a theory and tries to lure the killer into the open. But he’s a cunning psychopath, not an easy match, and Jocelyn has to decide how far she’s willing to go.

Once I started reading, I really didn’t want to put it down. From the start, it was fast-paced and had so many twists and turns I couldn’t put it down. The villain, the killer, was creative and sick, and deliciously evil, and you never knew what would happen next. All characters were flawed, and felt real, relatable, in particular Jocelyn. She still struggled with what happened to her in the past, and she came across as three-dimensional, almost as a real person.

The writing was excellent and really immersed the reader into the story. An excellent read, recommended to all thriller / mystery fans.
