Seemingly unconnected murders are occurring across the United States and only the head of Ault Enterprises realizes they are not random. Your Move: Carol Golden Book 7 by Alan Cook has Cynthia Sakai, alias Carol Golden, helping Kyle Robertson figure out the elaborate game this killer is playing in order to prevent further murders. With murders of Ault employees taking place on some of the highest mountain peaks in the US and strange clues accompanying each one, Kyle turns to Cynthia to engage the murderer and try to beat him at his own game. Through careful deduction and the help of a new friend, Cynthia tracks down names and faces from her past. Police are reluctant to become involved since the crimes occurred in three different states and they don’t see a connection, but all the victims worked for subsidiaries of the same parent company, Ault Enterprises. Traveling from site to site, the situation begins to make sense to Carol and Kyle. It is just a matter of time before they can flush out the killer or, that is, until a real surprise challenges their theories and puts them in danger.
Alan Cook’s tight writing draws you into this delightful mystery from the first page and holds on to you until the very end. Great characters, realistic dialogue and plenty of action as well as the unique addition of a ‘game’ distinguishes Your Move from many other books in the genre, giving you plenty to enjoy. Carol Golden is a deep woman with an interesting past, making her a special type of heroine. Even though this is book 7 in the series, it is quite readable as a stand-alone story with just enough background to fill in some blanks without leaving you confused. Cook has a great handle on pleasing readers and you are sure to enjoy this murder/mystery story and all the others that come before and after.
