I am SO EXCITED that Stan Brookshire is back! In this installment, we have the usual cast of Stan, Jane and the Lake City PD as they try to track down a deranged kidnapper before it is too late for his victim. Nuts as this kidnapper is, he’s also smart and leaves no clues behind. Stan has to rely on help from a new-to-the-Lake-City-cast psychic -Beth. Beth is a really sweet person, a very well developed character that left me hoping she appears in future books in this series. I was also pleased to discover that Julian is still around! Another brilliantly designed character.
I love this series because Stan has this crazy instinct that so far, has served him well. He reminds me in a way of Detective Alex Cross, but without all the fancy degrees. He is very versatile – he is able to profile his suspects to a tee, he doesn’t miss anything – even the tiniest of details and he doesn’t rule anything out, no matter how crazy a notion. He accepts help when he should – he isn’t too prideful and always puts the victims first. He puts his whole life on hold when someone is in trouble in order to find them.
This book is very well written, packed with action, drama, a story of revenge, a touch of violence and a splash of paranormal activity (just the psychic’s visions). It has it all and kept me on the edge of my seat. Very well written. Cosgrove manages to be very descriptive without being too wordy, making this book the perfect balance of a good read, and a fairly quick read. I love this installment and cannot wait for more Stan Brookshire.

Stan & Jane are back and so is a dark, twisted bit of their past!
Pieces of You is aptly titled as a killer from Stan’s past is literally back, right out of his nightmares and it is glorious. This is Cosgrove’s most twisted serial killer yet and he’s absolutely brilliantly designed. With Julian on their side perhaps they’ll catch him this time… or perhaps Julian will get hurt too.. you won’t get any spoilers out of me but truly – this is the best Stan Brookshire installment yet.
I’ve long-awaited this Book 4 and it was worth the wait.
The formatting is professional and the cover is BEAUTIFUL and perfectly fitting.
I highly recommend this book.
Characters are complex, brilliantly designed masterpieces and the book is a fast, fun read.
