45422558“They know exactly when he’ll strike… They just have to find him first.In all their years working for the Baywood police department, detectives A.L. McKittridge and Rena Morgan have never seen anything like it. Four women dead in forty days, each killed ten days apart. With nothing connecting the victims and very little evidence, the clock is already counting down to when the next body drops. A.L. and Rena will have to act fast if they’re going to find the killer’s next victim before he does.But identifying the killer’s next likely target is only half the battle. With pressure pushing in from all sides, a promising breakthrough leads the detectives to Tess Lyons, a woman whose past trauma has left her too damaged to appreciate the danger she’s in. Unwilling to let another woman die, A.L. and Rena will put everything on the line to keep Tess safe and end the killer’s deadly spree once and for all–before time runs out again.


This one was up-and-down for me.

I really enjoyed the murder mystery and the actual case itself. It has more of the classic thriller that will keep you guessing like most novels in this genre.

Now, do know that this is a character-driven story with tons of background on all their personal lives that slowly come together at the end. It was because of this that I felt the story was a bit drawn out and slow.

I saw myself wanting to know more about the killer and his victims and the mystery behind it all versus having to hear all the drama outside.

Even though it was an entertaining story, I ended up giving this one a 2 out of 5 stars. If you love slower, character-focused mysteries, you may really enjoy this one. It just wasn’t for me.

One thought on “Ten Days Gone (A.L. McKittridge #1) by Beverly Long

  1. Totally agree with your review. I gave it 3 and 1/2 stars. Loved the mystery but didn’t sympathize with the two main characters. Did sympathize with the husband more and he was a support character 🤷🏻‍♀️
