Synopsis - Trained To Kill:

When detectives have exhausted every lead in their arsenal of tools, they turn to the only people who can help solve the crime.


Seasoned Detectives Oliver Rousseau and Jack Deveraux of the New Orleans PD are stumped when a sophisticated killer who targets his victims on rainy nights during hurricane season evades suspicion as the police quickly run out of leads on the murder of a prominent doctor’s wife.


When Jennifer Dolan, an employee at the Criminal Courthouse fails to show up for work police are dispatched to her residence, just houses from the murdered doctor’s wife, to discover she has been killed with the same M.O. – a single gunshot to the head on a rainy night. 


With the clock ticking on the second murder, Oliver resorts to unorthodox methods and enlists the aid of his beautiful wife Marin, and her twin sister Megan - who hold the clues and a carefully guarded secret of the affluent Carrington women – their psychic ability that allows them to see the calculated murder of Jennifer Dolan and identify the killer. 


Oliver knows only hard evidence will lead to an arrest so it’s up to him to convince Jack, and a small task force to focus the investigation on an unlikely killer without telling them where he gets his information, in order to protect his wife’s secret. But, when the suspect terrorizes Oliver’s family and one of them is shot, the case explodes as Oliver and Jack go on the hunt for a sniper - Trained To Kill.


This novel has a lot of twists and turns, southern exposure, police procedures where the good guys are not always good, and an ending that forces you to sit up a little bit straighter.  The characters come to life with suspense, drama, and explosive action.

I have read this book and it was easy to read, fast paced, and well written. Once I thought I had it figured out the plot thickened and kept me guessing until the end. I look forward to the next novel in the series!!!
