What Reviewers Say:

 “Her Best Thriller Yet” 5/5 stars

I loved this book :-) If you like a good helping of suspense, with a spoonful of intrigue, a spot of reality, several twists and turns and a dash of romance then you must read this. Ms Winkes is really growing into her writing and this makes reading her books such a pleasure. The story ARC for Killer Instinct is exceptionally well done and as the reader you know you are always going to be surprised with the turn of events. I loved her characters, you think you are not going to like some of them, then there are a few twists and you find yourself thinking why didn't I like them? - Valden Bush

Double Wow!” 5/5 stars

This is one hell of a great detective story!so many twists and turns a great plot and so many wonderfully written characters and a love story too boot.Loved it I hope there are more to follow - f15hy jo

“Brilliant” 5/5 stars

I really enjoyed this book. This author never disappoints. A thriller with a twist, I'm trying not to give too much away. The characters are great and the book is well written. - Mandy

“Great Sequel!” 5/5 stars 

I liked The Miracle Girl, and I liked The Fall Girl just as much, but not for the same reasons. First of all, I'd read the first but I listened to the second one, and the narrator did a great job. Also, as a former journalist, I was very interested in the way the job was described, with all that's great about it but also all that's not so great (and sometimes really bad). The ending was quite open, so I really hope there's a third book coming. - Jude S

“Amazing” 5/5 stars

This was great and didn’t disappoint. I love how with Barbara Winkes you know you are getting a fantastic story, great plot, intricate detail and complex characters but at the same time you never really know how it is all going to go….and that is what makes Barbara’s stories so AMAZING!!!! This was a gritty crime with a difference. Ex-cop Joanna finds herself intrigued by a similar case of a serial killer to one she had many years ago that lead to her own fate as a murderer and stint behind bars. In a desperate attempt to regain control on something she feels needs closure she works with friends and ex-colleagues to hopefully stop another monster. But, it gets personal for Joanna when Rue becomes involved and a very intense story is unleashed. A fantastic story with intrigue to keep you hooked at every turn of a page and not to be missed!  - Charger
