Summary (Goodreads)

As the daughter of a Colorado County coroner, seventeen-year old Cameryn Mahoney is no stranger to death. in fact, she’s always been fascinated by the science of it. so she’s thrilled to finally get some hands-on experience in forensics working as her father’s assistant. but Cammie is in for more than she bargained for when the second case that she attends turns out to be someone she knows the latest victim of a serial killer known as the Christopher Killer. And if dealing with that isn’t hard enough, Cammie soon realizes that if she’s not careful, she might wind up as the killer’ s next victim. . . .


I love a good mystery and I love a good thriller. This book is both. Cammie’s father is the county coroner, and Cammie loves to get into his work. She is fascinated with the dead, how the died, and who did it. She believes every body has story and it is her job to tell it. Cammie also loves to figure things out and do things on her own, which always lands her in trouble.

Cammie seems to be down to earth, real good head on her shoulder, most of the time. She does love to find trouble. She is smart and snarky and very independent. There are a bunch of characters to love in this book. Each character has their own personality with their own quirkiness and fun. They all seem to work together in solving the crime. Even down to her best friend.

The book is quite detailed. The author did a great job in describing and explaining all the aspects of what Cammie and her father do. There were times the details were a bit to stomach, but I did get through it. The writing really flows, it’s a fast paced read and it’s just fun. I love this series.
