I really enjoyed Book 4 in this series so I have been looking forward to spending my weekend with Book 5. Thankfully, I managed to find a few hours this past weekend to curl up with a book on the couch. It’s never easy to find time to read but it is totally necessary to my happiness level.

AT Dusk (An Alex Troutt Thriller, Book 5)
Eyes are the window to the soul…unless there isn’t a soul to be found. A little boy makes his first kill—and he likes it.
He is cunning, charming, and without remorse. He is a sociopath. As boy turns to man, what lies inside takes root.
He will make a mark on Boston unlike any other, and FBI Special Agent Alex Troutt must figure out how to stop him.
But when she and her close-knit team move in closer, the stakes become much higher as the case takes on a more personal tone.
It’s a frantic race to stop a manipulative killer before his web of deceit and destruction escalates into a blood bath of haunting proportions.
Alex is involved in a murder case that has ties to an old cold case file. She thinks that they have the suspect in custody but for some reason, things just aren’t adding up correctly.
She’s convinced that the suspect in custody is guilty – she’s just not sure if it’s this murder or something else. As the killer becomes bolder, she starts to believe that he may be closer to her and her family than she thought.
This story is the second Alex Troutt thriller that I’ve read, and I loved this one as much as the first. Alex is a strong, independent woman with a sense of humor who is thoroughly likeable.
The situations she finds herself in are totally believable and the author tells the story in a way that really draws you in. I really thought that I knew who the killer was until the very last minute when new evidence was uncovered.
The ending really blew me away. Definitely a must read book.
