    1. This is a well-written, reasonable paced novel. The characters are interesting but, other than the lead, not particularly well developed. The plot was interesting and the resolution a surprise (at least to me). My main problem was the relationship between the heroine (a reporter) and the chief of homicide. I found their cozy relationship and sharing of information to be somewhat unrealistic and, at times, irritating. I'm not sure how real-world that is and it forms the basis for the entire book. [...]

    3. Review: I thought that Keith Donaldson did a very good job at developing his leading character to be a strong female lead. However, outside of that, I didn't think that the other main characters were fleshed out as well and I had trouble trying to visualize them over the course of the novel. Sometimes, the supporting characters were not given enough background development and I had a hard time understanding their motives or actions.Donaldson states at the end of the novel that he first wrote thi [...]

    4. Received a free copy through .The problem for me with this novel is it starts off seemingly to be going in one direction, and then does a u-turn and takes off in a completely different direction. Maybe that’s why I was ultimately disappointed in it. The presumed story – killing off pregnant women - had many interesting possibilities, especially since the person deeply involved in the investigation is herself pregnant. That could have added a really nice twist to the plot. Instead, the main c [...]

    5. I just finished this book and I'm not quite sure what to think. I'd probably give it more like 3.5 stars since I really liked the first half of the book (was up way too late reading it), but then it just seemed to lose focus and spent too much time on random events not connected to the main plot. The book relies heavily on dialogue, but I wasn't always sure who was talking (and maybe that could be because this ARC copy didn't have the best formatting).For the most part, I liked the main characte [...]

    6. Death of an Intern by Keith Donaldson is an engaging mystery/thriller that combines politics, sexual scandal, and murder. Set in Washington DC, the protagonist is Laura Wolfe, a tenacious beat reporter for the Washington Daily Star. Laura covers a story of what appears to be a serial killer. Her keen investigative skills soon leads her all the way to the White House as she relentlessly pursues the truth of who is responsible for the killings. Laura's character is well developed, but I found her [...]

    7. I love strong, smart female characters that are also very human and approachable and Laura Wolfe is just that. From the beginning, the murders don't feel like a serial killing to her and she follows her instincts to uncover the truth. The "who done it" part really surprised me. Enjoyable read.

    8. I was asked to review this from Netgalley.I tried very hard to get into this as I know I usually love my Crime/Thriller books. I sooooooooo struggled to get past the first few pages and I am not usually 1 to moan, but I couldn't even understand the story.

    9. Couldn't finish this one. Just did not grab my attention. And with all the books in the TBR pile, decided to say bye bye to it.
