8 Down (Alaskan Cyber Hunters #2) by Kimberley Woodhouse

8 Down (Alaskan Cyber Hunters #2)

8 bodies down.

8 more lives at stake.

How do you catch a serial killer who attacks through cyberspace?

Investigator Carrie Kintz has been on the job with the Alaska Bureau of Investigation in Anchorage for only a couple of months. But she's already been thrown into the deep there's a serial killer on the loose. Not only is he claiming he's already killed eight people, he's also vowed that eight more lives will be eliminated if demands aren't met. The only clues to help law enforcement stop him are the ones he sends in crossword puzzles across the country--always in the same 8 Down position.

As Carrie works the case, she can't help but feel she's in over her head. And worse, there's signs that the deaths may be part of a frighteningly elaborate cyberattack. But without knowing how the victims are connected, tracking down a killer determined to prove he's smarter than everyone else may be impossible.

With the clock ticking and lives hanging in the balance, Carrie is desperate not to fail and be fired--or worse, to find her faith fading in the face of danger and uncertainty. But when she calls in security specialist Scott Patteson for his expertise on the case, she's suddenly also in danger of losing her heart.

Best-selling author Kimberley Woodhouse's thrilling romantic suspense series continues with this melding of cybercrime and true crime, perfect for fans of Irene Hannon, Lynnette Eason, and Colleen Coble.


Wow! It began with 26 Below and now, there's a thrilling addition to the Alaskan Cyber Hunters series. If you want a heart-pounding race to find a psychotic killer, in a story that will keep you turning the pages, grab a copy of 8 Down NOW!

I'm a long-time fan of her historical fiction novels, but author Kimberley Woodhouse's venture into psychological suspense is extraordinary! I loved the characters, the Alaskan setting, and a peek into the work of both the FBI and the ABI (Alaska Bureau of Investigation). The ticking-clock suspense, the baffling crossword puzzle clues that the serial killer uses to taunt the authorities, and the portrayal of a demented mind are all absolutely chilling!

But wait...there's also sweet romance, a powerful faith message, and a cliffhanger message in the epilogue that promises even more thrills ahead. I recommend 8 Down to all who enjoy inspirational romantic suspense.

I received a digital advanced copy from the author. There was no obligation for a positive review.
