And The Forecast Called For Rain

by Novelist Kim Carter (Author)

In the rain-soaked streets of Sierra Hills, Detective Ramirez and his unlikely team chase a relentless killer, where every drop conceals a clue, and no one is who they seem.

Book Description:​

Detective Jose Ramirez and the Sierra Hills Police Department are scrambling for leads on a killer who has already struck five times, each time leaving his signature trademark: large butcher knives piercing the abdomens of his young female victims.

Profiling the killer is proving to be difficult, and Detective Ramirez knows that it’s only a matter of time before their perpetrator strikes again.

As if Ramirez isn’t frustrated enough, to his dismay, he is assigned a partner. Officer Daniel Chatham, a handsome, young man, fresh out of grad school, has pulled some strings to join the division and becomes Ramirez’s, right-hand man. The lead detective’s anger slowly begins to dissipate as he discovers the book smart kid can be quite the asset.

With Ramirez’s experience, Chatham’s sharp mind and quick thinking, and the insight of Erin Sommers, a beautiful, young journalist, the three make a powerful team gaining on their criminal.

It’s raining… it’s pouring, and a killer is on the loose in the rainy Sierra Hills of Washington State. No one is who they seem, and the plot thickens with every turn. You’ll never guess the ending of this enigmatic tale.

This book is a real roller coaster ride; sucks you in, doesn't let go! I felt like screaming at the ending! OMG! How could it end like that? I feel like calling my nieces, and telling them, don't open the door, not even for the pizza guy! The one problem I genuinely have is that on one of the corpses, there is no way, a DNA would not have been done! No way! There were times the book was slow, then fast, slow, fast. However, it held my attention throughout. Let me just say, I read many books, therefore, when I say the ending, blew me away, it is still on my mind! I hope there is a follow up, or my pounding heart, will give me a headache! I highly recommend!
