Nothing makes Portland detective Archie Sheridan happier than knowing that Gretchen Lowell - the serial killer whose stunning beauty is belied by the gruesome murders she’s committed - is locked away in a psych ward. Archie can finally heal from the near-fatal physical and emotional wounds she’s inflicted on him and start moving on with his life.
To this end, Archie throws himself into the latest case to come across his desk: A cyclist has discovered a corpse in Mount Tabor Park on the eastern side of Portland. The man was gagged, skinned, and found hanging by his wrists from a tree. It’s the work of a killer bold and clever enough to torture his victim for hours on a sunny summer morning in a big public park and yet leave no trace.
And then Archie gets a message he can’t ignore - Gretchen claims to have inside knowledge about this grisly murder. Archie finally agrees to visit Gretchen, because he can’t risk losing his only lead in the case. At least, that’s what he tells himself.... But the ties between Archie and Gretchen have always been stronger, deeper, and more complex than he’s willing to admit, even to himself. What game is she playing this time? And even more frightening, what long-hidden secrets from Gretchen’s past have been dredged up that someone would kill to protect?
At once terrifying and magnetic, “Beauty Killer” Gretchen Lowell returns with a vengeance in Kill You Twice, Chelsea Cain’s latest razor-sharp psychological thriller.

My Review:
I was slightly a little disappointed after reading The Night Season compared to the other books in Chelsea Cain's Archie Sheridan & Gretchen Lowell series, but not disappointed enough to stop me from reading another book!  In true Chelsea Cain fashion, Kill You Twice definitely lived up to all the hype that was built up in the other books in the series!

I was glad to see that Gretchen Lowell was back in Kill You Twice, and as in the first few books, she holds back nothing!  She is back to her truly psychotic ways and I LOVE IT!  Cain sure knows how to write a totally sick book!  She never fails to leave me reeling and wondering, who thinks of this stuff, but gosh I love it!  Does that make me demented as well?  The more sick and twisted the plot, the more I enjoy it, and Kill You Twice fell right into that!

I enjoy that each book is a character builder and lets us see a little bit more about a particular character!  The more I read about Archie, Gretchen, Susan, Henry and Claire, the more I want to keep reading!  I think the characters in this series have got to be the most diverse, unique set of characters that I have ever read.  I mean seriously, I don't think anyone else is capable of creating such greatness in characters.

The narrator, Christina Delaine, did this series much more justice than she did in The Night Season, and was easy to listen to and follow in this book.  She did the characters justice and was a great reader, especially given the content of what she was reading!  Great job!

Overall, I am so glad that this series picked back up from the last book.  All too often, I find that the deeper you get into the series, the worst each book gets, and I was totally afraid that was what was going to happen with this series, but oh how Chelsea Cain pulled it off again!  I am so thrilled to have read this book and can't wait to check out the next (and last for now) book in this series, Let Me Go!

Would I Recommend This Book?
Absolutely, without a shadow of a doubt!
