Blog Tour/Review: Copper Lake by Ann Swann

They call him the Killer Cartographer because he carves the map coordinates of each victim on the femur of the one before. Then he tattoos the information on his skin. Can Detective Kendra Dean bring him in, or will she become his next tattoo?



Ann lives in Texas with her husband and rescue pets. She loves libraries and book stores and owns two e-readers just for fun. Ann writes what she likes to read.

 All For Love, a Contemporary Romance filled with heartache and hope, was Ann’s first novel for 5 Prince Publishing. It has been on Amazon’s bestseller list for Literary Fiction.

 Her Romantic Suspense series begins with
Stutter Creek, which has been on Amazon’s bestseller list for Romantic Suspense, and continues with her newest release, Lilac Lane, which one reader called “almost too scary.”

Book three will be out in 2015.

She also writes short fiction, which is usually speculative in nature. To find out more simply contact Ann at one of the ways listed below, or click on the STAY UPDATED button on her Amazon Author Page.

Detective Kendra Dean's life is unraveling. Her husband of 20 years recently told her he needed space and she's under investigation at work for potentially pushing a robbery suspect in front of a UPS truck. Her partner, Detective Woody James, is determined to help her prove her innocence. She heads to Copper Lake to get away for a while. While she's out for a hike one day, she discovers human remains. She goes into detective mode and doesn't realize that she has become the killer's next target.  

Kendra has three adult children who come visit her. Woody James visits her, too. Her children are a bit suspicious of her relationship with Woody and think he might be the reason their dad left. At the beginning of the story, she is mainly dealing with her relationships but a major event shifts her focus to survival.

There is definitely a creep factor to this book. We learn early on who the serial killer is and we're privy to his twisted thoughts. We learn more about who he is and why he gets a thrill out of killing. He was someone I didn't enjoy reading about. I looked forward to him getting caught.

This is the third book in a series but I felt that it worked well as a standalone. There was some content that was difficult for me to read. I love suspense, and this book delivers in that area, but I personally didn't enjoy how much of this story was from the POV of the killer. There is also some swearing, including two uses of the "f" word and talk of rape (no details).

My Rating=3 Stars
