Publisher's Summary

A #1 Wall Street Journal bestseller.

Every time Gwen closed her eyes, she saw him in her nightmares. Now her eyes are open, and he’s not going away.

Gwen Proctor won the battle to save her kids from her ex-husband, serial killer Melvin Royal, and his league of psychotic accomplices. But the war isn’t over. Not since Melvin broke out of prison. Not since she received a chilling text...

You’re not safe anywhere now.

Her refuge at Stillhouse Lake has become a trap. Gwen leaves her children in the protective custody of a fortified, well-armed neighbor. Now, with the help of Sam Cade, brother of one of Melvin’s victims, Gwen is going hunting. She’s learned how from one of the sickest killers alive.

But what she’s up against is beyond anything she feared—a sophisticated and savage mind game calculated to destroy her. As trust beyond her small circle of friends begins to vanish, Gwen has only fury and vengeance to believe in as she closes in on her prey. And sure as the night, one of them will die.

Not as gripping as book 1.

I like the different POV in the book but found the sons character to be annoying. His internal dialogue was whiny at best, but I am generally not a fan of children.

I didn't like the anticlimactic ending, it was so abrupt and lacked the intense details that I think was needed to tie up some loose ends.

I still liked it enough to purchase the remainder of the series. And upon first listen, book 3 seems a lot better.

Great book

I preferred book one though I did enjoy the multiple perspectives (except Conner’s). The end felt a little anti-climactic. The relationships also magically healed at the end. Solid book.

Not as good as Book 1 but worth the listen

I was somewhat disappointed with this follow-up because I had such high expectations based on the first. Some of the character development could have been better and more consistent. Unlike the first book, I found it hard to understand certain characters' motivations, even when their inner thoughts were being narrated. it was particularly egregious for the protagonist's son, to the extent that I developed a strong dislike for the character, making it hard to feel empathy for him.

overall, however, I enjoyed the story and look forward to the next installment.

Amazing sequel!

I loved how they are narrated! Each chapter from a different point of view. Very awesome. Highly recommend.

Liked book 1 more

I enjoyed listening to the 1st book so I used a credit for book 2. I should've saved the credit&read the book. I struggled to get through this one because of the performances and the irritating kids voices. There were times I found myself skipping 30sec to get passed the whining but not to miss the story line.

better than the first book !

I loved the first book and binged it, but the second one was so intense, frustrating at times but keeps your hooked! I also really liked that this book had different voices for each character.

Gobbled it up

Enjoying this series and so far books 1 and 2 were the best. It was a frustrating one because of young characters doing stupid things but definitely not unbelievable things. Not entirely unpredictable but I did not care. Lots of parts I did not predict. Dark but not disgusting. Enjoyable.

sequel to Stillwater Lake

After listening to Stillwater Lake and the unsatisfactory ending I went looking for a sequel and Killman Creek fulfilled the need for resolution. If you felt ripped off with the ending of book one you will want to read book two.
