This is typical Grisham: speedy, gripping, very good at conveying the complexities of the law in a digestible way - Sunday Express.
No one with any interest in justice could resist this story, which Grisham has structured with all his familiar skill. The good characters are sympathetic, the wicked are truly revolting and the rage is wholly understandable - Literary Review.

When Special Agent Riley Paige finally decides to take a well-needed rest from the FBI, a request for help comes from the most unlikely source: her own daughter. Worse, she is convinced that the suicide was staged, and that her sister was murdered at the hands of a serial killer. Riley reluctantly looks into the case, only to discover that two other freshman girls at Georgetown recently killed themselves in the same grotesque way—by hanging. As she realizes foul play may be afoot, she brings in the FBI.
In time she discovers that this case is far more twisted than it seems—and that she just may be up against the most psychotic killer of her career. When prostitutes turn up dead in Phoenix, not much attention is paid. But when a pattern of disturbing murders is discovered, the local police soon realize a serial killer is on a rampage and they are in way over their heads.
Given the unique nature of the crimes, the FBI, called in, knows they will need their most brilliant mind to crack the case: Special Agent Riley Paige. Riley, recovering from her last case and trying to pick up the pieces of her life, is at first reluctant. But when she learns of the grievous nature of the crimes and realizes the killer will soon strike again, she is compelled. She begins her hunt for the elusive killer and her obsessive nature takes her too far—perhaps too far, this time, to pull herself back from the brink.
She learns that, even amongst these women, there are glimpses of hope, hope being robbed by a violent psychopath. But what she discovers leads her to a twist that is too shocking for even her to imagine. A dark psychological thriller with heart-pounding suspense, ONCE CRAVED is book 3 in a riveting new series—with a beloved new character—that will leave you turning pages late into the night.
Women are turning up dead while camping in a remote national park in West Virginia. Yet the park is vast, and no connection can be found between them.
At the same time, Mackenzie receives a call from Nebraska urging her to come home. The case no longer cold, Mackenzie desperately needs to help solve it. This killer is more diabolical—and smarter—than Mackenzie could have imagined. As she goes down a road she fears to travel—deep into her own psyche—she finds a double twist waiting for her that even she could not expect.
Women are going missing in rural Iowa, and a pattern is emerging. It is feared a serial killer is on a rampage, his pace increasing. Given her Midwestern roots, Mackenzie is chosen as the perfect fit. But Mackenzie is reluctant to return to the Midwest, this time to a starkly rural setting that reminds her too much of her upbringing, of her own ghosts in her closet. In the deadly game of cat-and-mouse, she finally realizes the psychosis of the killer she is up against, and comes to realize that the land of her upbringing is holding even darker and more twisted horrors than she could imagine.
What a cracker of a book I was absolutely gripped Still reeling from her own loss, Robyn vows she will find the killer — no matter what. But then a local doctor — a popular woman with a young family of her own — is found dead outside her surgery. There are similarities between her and the first body and Robyn must take another look at the picture-postcard town, where no one has any enemies. Can Robyn untangle the hidden web of secrets, lies, and smouldering grudges, at the heart of this close-knit community, before another life is lost?
An absolutely unputdownable thriller that will keep you reading into the night. It gets all the stars from me! This was real edge-of-your-seat stuff that kept me turning pages. Yes, that was my reaction! Raised the hairs on the back of my neck. Oh my!
