Official Summary: “Convicted of six murders when she was just fifteen, the notorious Ryann Wilkanson hasn’t been able to act on her darkest, deadliest urges for twelve years. She’s exhausted her appeals and has little hope of ever getting out of prison and back to hunting.
Until a media-hungry legal team mounts a campaign to do the impossible—get her immediately released with a commuted sentence.
Forensic psychiatrist Nancy Clafin has mere weeks to evaluate Ryann’s current mental state against her grisly past to determine if she’s changed. But under the shadow of her own questionable history, it’s not easy to separate her personal life from her professional duty.
At least that’s what Ryann is counting on.
Behind the cold steel doors of a Colorado maximum-security prison, will Nancy find a cold-blooded killer or a newly redeemed woman determined to right her past wrongs?” – Goodreads

Review: I liked it. I didn’t think I would been as 80% of the book is just two people sitting in a room talking. But you are just waiting for one of the main characters to make her decision, while your seeing it from both perceptions. I read this book before the first in the series, so you can read it as a standalone. I didn’t feel like I was missing anything.
It was quite interesting to see both sides of the situation. Your in a sense witnessing the whole thing from all angles. Waiting to see if one side messes up, or if the other side picks up on the truth. The whole book just has you sitting there in suspense waiting for the finally outcome. And what an outcome, leaves the door open for whole lot. Be really interesting to read the third in the series if the Author carries on with these characters. Overall it was very intelligently done.
