From a reviewer:
Marked for Murder by Melanie Atkins is the first novel in the Keller County Cops series. Detective Jonah McKee believes he finally has a live witness to help solve a serial killer spree when a beautiful amnesia victim is found wrapped in a tarp on the side of a road. Dubbed the Handyman because such tarps are often used by painters, the killer has eluded capture and victims are found tossed and wrapped like garbage. This one’s drivers license says she’s Ellen Robinson, but is she, or is she an attorney from Chicago? Who is this woman who has invaded his and his son’s life before he even realizes it? Before he knows what’s hit him, the detective is on the run determined to protect her and has to leave his son with a friend to keep him out of harm’s reach.
If you like on-the-edge chase stories with romance, this is your novel. It’s edgy, set in Mississippi. I found it a wonderful quick read. I loved the descriptions of the Mississippi land and the wooded camp where they think they’re safe, since it’s secluded and high on stilts to keep it from flooding. I felt for the victim. The author does a great job of making you care about her and uses rich detail. – Barbara Robinson
