Waiting on Wednesday with Red 1-2-3


 
Waiting on Wednesday is brought to you by Breaking the Spine
 
Red 1-2-3 by John Katzenbach
 
Due Out: January 7, 2014
 
Official Summary: Three women. They have nothing in common. They are different ages, come from different background, and lead drastically different lives. The only thing that binds them together is their red hair--and that each of them has been targeted for murder.

When each 'Red' receives a chilling letter in the mail from a killer known only as the Wolf, their lives are upended as they spend every waking moment in the fear that their lives could be snuffed out at any moment. The Wolf is stalking them, biding his time, waiting for the perfect moment to complete his master plan. Yet the one thing this cunning and devious killer didn't plan for is the Reds discovering each other.

The three women, using clues left by the Wolf, manage to band together in the hopes of protecting one another from this deadly predator. With law enforcement turning their backs on the Reds, their only hope for survival is to turn the tables, for the prey to become the predators. In a riveting game of cat-and-mouse, the Reds must track down the Wolf himself--before he silences each of them forever.
 
Why I Want This: I've been particularly interested in mysteries and thrillers lately, so when I came across this title in Romantic Times magazine, I was immediately interested! They gave the book 4 1/2 stars and made it a Top Pick, which is the highest rating you can get. That alone is reason for me to be excited, but it also just sounds amazing. I love psychological thrillers and this promises to be a good one!
