Say Goodbye by Lisa Gardner

Say Goodbye by Lisa Gardner

My Rating: 9 *'s

Description: Come into my parlor...

For Kimberly Quincy, FBI Special Agent, it all starts with a pregnant hooker. The story Delilah Rose tells Kimberly about her johns is too horrifying to be true—but prostitutes are disappearing, one by one, with no explanation, and no one but Kimberly seems to care.

Said the spider to the fly...

As a member of the Evidence Recovery Team, dead hookers aren't exactly Kimberly's specialty. The young agent is five months pregnant—she has other things to worry about than an alleged lunatic who uses spiders to do his dirty work. But Kimberly's own mother and sister were victims of a serial killer. And now, without any bodies and with precious few clues, it's all too clear that a serial killer has found the key to the perfect murder... or Kimberly is chasing a crime that never happened.

Kimberly's caught in a web more lethal than any spider's, and the more she fights for answers, the more tightly she's trapped. What she doesn't know is that she's close—too close—to a psychopath who makes women's nightmares come alive, and if he has his twisted way, it won't be long before it's time for Kimberly to...say goodbye...

My Thoughts: Parts of the story were quite disturbing to read, especially the graphic detail about the spiders. The story kept me guessing to the end and I found the numerous twists and turns in the plot very intriguing. Loved seeing Rainey and Quincy again, though they appear in the last third of the story and are very minor characters. I hope there will be more stories in this series. The story jumps between the past and the present and it was a little confusing trying to keep the villains straight, but it worked out really well and the epilogue ties up all loose ends nicely.
