Deadly Laws by Jim Michael Hansen

Review by Dawn Dowdle

Kayla Beck is a law student.  Life is going along well until she receives a strange phone call where the voice is distorted.  The caller tells her there's a woman being held in a box car, and she's the only one who can save her and only if she acts quickly and follows the directions exactly.  Kayla does so and is able to save Aspen White, but not before Aspen kills a man.  They become friends and pair up to try to find the serial killer who called Kayla. 

Denver Homicide Detective Bryson Coventry is called to the murder of a man in a box car.  Then later a law student is found dead by the tracks.  Bryson feels in his gut these cases are related, but he can't find what ties them together. 

Tracking down a car seen at the first crime scene, Bryson arrives at Kayla's apartment only to find Aspen White.  He is drawn to her because she is so beautiful, and they become involved. 

When more young women go missing and end up dead, Bryson realizes he is on the trail of a serial killer.  An FBI profiler, who is also Bryson's friend, comes to help with the case.  She's been tracking this guy for years.  What neither of them knows is that Kayla and Aspen are also looking for the same guy.  Can they find him before he kills again and without putting themselves in danger? 

I have to say this is one book you will have trouble putting down from page one.  The author has done a fabulous job of pulling the reader in and keeping them there.  He has a great knack at switching from one part of the story to another at just the right time.  He will keep you wondering what is going on until the last page.  There are lots of twists and turns and suspense. 

This is the first book I've read by this author.  I really enjoyed it and look forward to reading more.  I highly recommend this book!  Just remember, start it when you have lots of time to read. You won't be able to put it down!
