Booklist Review: "The first in Brennan's new series features the FBI's Mobile Response Team (MRT), a new unit in which specialized agents are dispatched to assist local law-enforcement teams with highly sensitive cases. The MRT's first case is a doozy. A seemingly dormant serial killer known as the Triple Killer (he murders in threes, a new victim every three days) has reemerged in Liberty Lake, Washington. Detective Kara Quinn of the LAPD is on leave and back in her hometown when she comes across the body of the newest victim. Special Agent Matt Costa, the demanding head of the MRT, invites Quinn to join the investigation. As the team learns the killer's pattern, they race against the clock to find him before he kills again. This is a detail-heavy procedural, which slows down the plot a bit at points. However, the characters are interesting, with Costa and Quinn playing well off of one another. The dramatic ending wraps up the case, but it's only the beginning for the MRT, and fans will look forward to the next installment."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "At the start of this tense series launch from bestseller Brennan (the Lucy Kincaid series), Det. Kara Quinn, who's on leave from the LAPD, is jogging on a trail in her hometown of Liberty Lake, Wash., when she comes across the mutilated body of a young woman. The victim is evidently a nurse, based on the green scrubs she's wearing and the stethoscope wrapped around her neck. When FBI special agent Mathias Costa, the head of the agency's new Mobile Response Team in Washington, D.C., learns that the Liberty Lake murder fits the profile of the serial killer known as the Triple Killer, he and his team travel to Washington State to join those, including Kara, investigating the murder. Since the Triple Killer strikes once every three years, Matthias and Kara must act fast to stop the unidentified fiend before he vanishes for another three years. The relationship between Matthias and Kara adds some romantic heat. Fans of Jeff Abbott and Karin Slaughter will find this crime novel hard to put down. Agent: Dan Conaway, Writers House. (Feb.)"
