Don't Look Back

Author: Lynette Eason
Publisher: Revell

ISBN: 978-0-8007-3370-4
Genre: Inspirational/suspense

Twelve years ago, Jamie Cash managed to survive a kidnapping that many other young girls died from. After years of therapy, she got her degree in forensic anthropology and started leaving the house, making a life for herself. But then he was back, ready to finish the job he started all those years ago.

Jamie helps the FBI and police identify bodies that died the same horrific death that her kidnapper had planned for her. But each time, he surfaced, warning her that her time was coming. The police were stumped, but they stayed on the case, trying to get a profile of this deranged man so they could identify him.

But, can Jamie really escape his grasp a second time?

DON’T LOOK BACK is the second book in the Women of Justice series, but it easily stands alone. I enjoyed getting to know Jamie a bit more than I did in the first book, though the horror story that she survived was more than gruesome and disturbing.

Ms. Eason has the ability to make the characters come alive, use the setting as an additional character, so that it plays into the story, and keep the suspense strong enough that the pages have to keep turning. I did figure out who the bad guy was right from the moment he was introduced in the story and experienced my share of frustration that the police couldn’t seem to figure it out.

If you are looking for a good suspense, then make sure you pick up a copy of DON’T LOOK BACK. It will hold your interest to the end. Plus there is a strong romance plot included. $14.99. 338 pages.
