About this ebook

On her hands and knees, Nikki moved to the other side of the body. She couldn’t stop her fingers from trembling as she brushed the dark hair off the victim’s face. She couldn’t look away. “I know her…”


When Special Agent Nikki Hunt is called to the Boundary Waters near Stillwater, Minnesota, it’s not just the cold that shocks her to her core: the body of a young woman has been found frozen beside a remote lake. Nikki is devastated to see the victim is her childhood friend Annmarie, and she recognizes the velvet ribbon tied in her hair as the hallmark of a serial killer who she has been hunting for years.


Desperate for justice, Nikki throws herself into the case. But she is shaken by what she finds at Annmarie’s home: a dead-bolt on her front door and a map in the spare room, with the locations of murdered women circled in thick, red marker. Did Annmarie know she was next? Then Nikki finds out that the killer has left a clue in Annmarie’s bedroom: a photo of Nikki’s mother that no one has ever seen. Has the murderer at large been in Nikki’s life since she was a child?


Nikki soon realizes that the key to unlocking this case is in her own family, but digging up the past could put her own daughter in danger. She has spent her whole life protecting the ones she loves, but to find this killer Nikki might have to risk everything…


Fans of Karin Slaughter, Lisa Gardner and Robert Dugoni will be completely addicted to this heart-pounding thriller. Once you start reading, the twists and turns will have you racing towards the end.

I received a free electronic ARC of this novel from Netgalley, Stacy Green, and Bookouture. Thank you all for sharing your hard work with me. I have read Lost Angels of my own volition, and this review reflects my honest opinion of this work. I can gladly add Stacy green to my authors being followed, and recommend her work to friends and family. "Lost Angels" is the third of a series (Nikki Hunt #3) but it is completely stand-alone. I want to read the previous works because I like Stacy Green's style and enjoyed the location of these stories. Seated around the massive national parks on the borderland between Canada and the US, I fell in love with the idea of this place while reading a Nevada Barr novel years ago, and added it to my bucket list to be explored one nice hot summertime. Unfortunately for our warm, compassionate protagonists, this tale takes place in the very early spring, just as the ice begins to think about breaking up on all that lovely water. Added to the challenge Mother Nature offers, Nikki and her family are subject to the whims of a serial killer, one from way back in the day. Add in the unstable weather and very hidden family secrets and you have a perfect storm.

Mortal Danger Has Nikki In Its Sights Ominously, the novel opens six years in the past when someone is watching Nikki, an FBI profiler, and her husband leaving their home in Quantico to move to Minnesota she will start a behavioral analysis unit. The timeline shifts to present day as Nikki is called to a murder scene in northern Minnesota where a woman’s body was found. Nikki and Liam, her partner, find the trifecta of evidence that indicates the young woman was killed by a serial killer, called Frost. Nikki has been trying to catch him for some time. Also, there are indications that uncharacteristically Frost may have been in a hurry. Then, Nikki recognizes the victim; she was her best friend in her youth. The novel proceeds from here. The main storyline becomes more and more troubling for Nikki. Frost now seems to be playing with Nikki and her team. He stole an ATV equipped for snow and ice from the parents of his first victim for this murder. Nikki becomes more uneasy as an increasing number of connections directly to her keep being discovered. As each layer of the main storyline onion is revealed, the tension increases. My interest was captured, and my need to continue to read kept increasing. The B-storyline in this novel centers mostly on Nikki. A significant portion of the background material is tied inextricably with the main storyline. The more traditional B-storyline methods as Nikki as a wife and as a mother are present. All major characters were fleshed out, and none were just one or two dimensional. The B-storyline contributed significantly to my reading enjoyment. For aspect of a novel that can cause readers to stop reading, there are not any intimate scenes, and there is some rude language, but nothing vulgar. Violence is described after the fact, but the possible violence kept some tension all the way to the end. I believe that almost all readers will not find a problem reading this novel based upon these three aspects. The largest plus for this novel was that I could not stop reading it even late into the night and had to read more when I woke up in the morning. This is the major criteria for a high star rating. Another positive was that I only had read the first book in the series and did not feel at all that I had missed anything, but I would suggest not reading this third in the series first. All the questions I had will reading were answered by the end of the novel. Lastly, to be honest, I did not find any aspect of this novel that I did not like. Based upon above, I rate this novel with five stars. If you enjoying reading this author as and this series as I do, make sure that you read her short paragraph after the end of the novel. I can’t wait, but I guess that I will have to wait. I received a free e-book version of this novel through NetGalley from Bookouture. My review is based only by my own reading experience of this book. I wish to thank Bookouture for the opportunity to read and review this novel early.

Lost Angels is a page-turner of a story. That grabbed me from the start and never let go. As FBI Agent Nikki Hunt is called to a crime scene and makes a shocking discovery, the victim is her old friend Annmarie...... and Frost the serial killer Nikki and her team have been hunting is back with a vengeance. And this time it's extremely personal. And with big twists, shocks galore and devastating blows. Not to mention an ending that had me on the edge of my seat this was an enthralling read. With a killer I did not see coming. Would definitely recommend. **I was kindly provided with an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review**
