Publisher's Summary

Malibu Creek State Park is a beautiful locale for campers, tourists, hikers, and Hollywood. For Detective Eve Ronin, it’s a backdrop for murder in a riveting thriller by #1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Goldberg.

For decades Malibu Creek State Park was the spectacular natural setting where Hollywood fantasies were made. But when a female camper is gunned down, it becomes a real-life killing ground. Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department homicide detectives Eve Ronin and Duncan Pavone are assigned the case...which Duncan fears is the latest in a series of sniper attacks that began long before Eve came to Lost Hills.

Seven victims over fourteen months...and top officials still refuse to see a connection. Eve and Duncan are stonewalled, threatened, and ordered to keep quiet. But Eve won’t back down. She’s no stranger to intimidation or corruption—she’s had a target on her back from day one at Lost Hills station.

Despite finding no evidentiary links between the shootings, Eve and Duncan follow their instincts into the shadows of Malibu Creek, where it’s not enough to expose the secrets and break the conspiracy of silence. They also have to make it out alive.

Critic Reviews

“Bestseller Goldberg’s strong fourth Eve Ronin mystery…[has] assured prose [that] matches the tight plot.”Publishers Weekly

“Goldberg’s compelling follow-up to Gated Prey is a fast-paced, riveting police procedural influenced by actual events in California. A character-driven series entry that skillfully depicts Hollywood corruption.”Library Journal (starred review) 

“A beautifully cinematic novelist who strikes a precise balance between darkness and humor.”Bookmarks Magazine

Great Series!!!!

It just blows me away that this entire series is FREE with Kindle Unlimited! Even without KU these books would certainly be worth a credit each.
Quick and to the point, this is a procedural series. The only drama written in is that which affects the story’s outcome. The rest is kept to a minimum.
This book involves an anonymous shooter who has been actively shooting people for years. The park authorities where he/she chose as the hunting ground has depicted these shootings as individual crimes. To admit they are related would scare off the public affecting tourism and equaling loss of money.
Nicol Zanzarella does an outstanding job narrating.
This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.
If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
Thank You.

Excellent narration. Good story well told

I am really enjoying these characters and the development of the story. Well written. Let’s hope Eve can make it through the next one without injury.

Never a dull moment in Hollywood

Eve’s partner is days away from his retirement when the latest case turns into something that he feels that he could have prevented. A rushed collar, a dead councilman and lots of questions lead Duncan to leave earlier than expected. Eve believes there’s more…and her doggedness could get her killed. Another good story in the series.

Going downhill

I like this author, but how on earth is a shooter with a shotgun called a sniper? I'm no gun expert beyond what I know from movies and video games, but a shotgun is the opposite of sniper rifle. Leaving aside this glaring error, this has become a typical police procedural a genre I avoid. The sexism Eve faces I'm sure is indicative of real life and I don't condone sexism, but I really don't care to read so much of it in my fiction. I read plenty of this in the news.

Another Great Book in the Series

Good book, interesting plot. Narrator does a good job. The only issue I have with the Eve Ronin series is her similarity to Eve Dallas series by JD Robb. Enough differences to avoid a lawsuit, but a bit more originality (and a different name) would have been appreciated.

Still has his fastball

An author who can still put together the elements of a great police story. Enough twists to keep you interested while giving depth to his characters. No resting on his rep. A really fun book.

Entertaining detective story and performance

This book is a very good hard-boiled police detective story with lots of mystery, twists, and action. I think it is my favorite one in this series. I love the way the story is written and the characters. This is really a good story and series. The performance is very good. Really enjoyable.

Love This Series

I love the interaction between the young inexperienced but smart as a whip Eve Ronin and the older grumpier partner Duncan who loves to eat even more than me! I find humor in their dialogue while being intrigued with the murder mystery. This one did have a lot of suspects and I would get confused from time to time as to who was who but it did not take away at all from my enjoyment. I can’t wait for the next installment! This is a fun series and the narrator is excellent!

Exceptional!

I was reading a book that I didn't enjoy. It was a slog and I thought "sod this", I returned it, bought this instead and loved it! If you liked the other Ronin books this is even better. The characters and good, Eve is a bit smarter, the case is great and not outlandish, the clues makes sense (I actually solved this one early!)

All in all the story and the narration were fantastic. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who liked the first 3 in the series.
