I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

 This is the third novel I’ve read by Angela Kay. I really liked her first two novels but I Can Kill is my favorite so far. Aidan O’Reilly is an FBI agent who has been tracking a serial killer, The Carnations Killer, for 10 years. The killer shows up for a few months, killing blondes and taunting Aidan, and then disappears until he shows up somewhere else for a few months. He even asks for Aidan by name because he thinks Aidan is a competent opponent.

The characters are well developed. I could feel Aidan’s mounting tension as he tries to find The Carnations Killer before there’s another murder. I like that his girlfriend supports him and once he confides in her, she has faith in him.

I Can Kill is full of suspense and twists. The reader gets to get a glimpse into the mind of the serial killer while not knowing his identity, which I didn’t figure out. This is a real page turner and I definitely recommend it. I can’t wait for her next novel!
