Cold case expert Evangeline Reed and forensics legend Harry Steinbeck are on their way from Minneapolis to Costa Rica. They’ve been ordered to keep close watch on a protective mother and her daughter, both of whom have troubling connections to a Minnesota serial killer. Are they on holiday? In hiding? Or on the run? It’s time for Van and Harry to close in on the truth. And there’s more at risk than anyone can imagine.

REVIEW:
There were parts of this story that I really loved.
Then there were parts that fell so flat for me. 
Sadly, the parts that fell flat kind of mattered. 
So I loved the idea of a cop having these visions and knowing what bad guys were doing. I also love what she did with those visions, and the outcome of the whole thing. What I didn't like was how the author got us there. The middle of the story, where the plot is supposed to be thickest, was thin as paper. It was muddled and over before you knew it. As a fan of thriller/horror/suspense/mystery.... I wanted and expected more in that moment.
Still, I liked the story as a whole. It just was lacking details.


3/5

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
