1 . Wonderful and entertaining read!
Posted April 10, 2009 by T. Browder , TexasI love this series. I first read "The Search". It was such a good read, I looked up Iris Johansen on the internet and realized I read #4 first. All can be read as stand-alone, but because many of her characters reappear in other books, I like reading them by publication dates. A lot of the characters make cameo appearances and that's what I love about her writing. I get a chance to "see" characters again and again and they don't just disappear. "The Killing Game" is the second (or 3rd, depending on how you look at it) of the "recurring characters books" and a must read.

Excerpt from The Killing Game by Iris Johansen
Talladega Falls, Georgia
The skeleton had been in the ground for a long time. Joe Quinn had seen enough of them to recognize that. But how long?
He turned to Sheriff Bosworth. "Who found it?"
"Two hikers. They stumbled on it late last night. Those rains the past few days washed it out of the ground. Hell, that storm slid half the mountain into the falls. A real gully washer." His gaze narrowed on Joe's face. "You must have hotfooted up here from Atlanta as soon as you heard about it."
"You think it's connected to one of the Atlanta PD's cases?"
"Maybe." He paused. "No. This is an adult."
"You're looking for a kid?"
