Interesting story line. I found a couple of things bothersome. Evelyn has a gigantic chip on her shoulder, and it's not flattering. Some people use these 'chips' to their advantage as motivators. She's constantly complaining that others don't or won't give her a fair shake because of her sex, race, physical size,etc. At times she feels very sorry for herself because of her mother's bad parenting and boyfriends. I enjoy books with strong female protagonists, but not whiny ones.
However, when she's not whining, I find her interesting. I will give the second book a try.

Evelyn is an emotionally unstable delicate little flower, incapable of understanding the thoughts and actions of the people she spends most of her time with. Men she encounters either resent her "strength" or fall all over themselves trying to protect her. She's uncooperative, too self-absorbed to consider the wants and needs of the people around her, and oblivious to the potential danger she puts herself and others in. Oh, and she's an ace FBI profiler!
I kept hoping it would get better. It kept not getting better. The story could have been really interesting, but there was too much damsel in distress and not enough focus on the killer or his profile, and that's a problem in a series about a profiler.
I found the narration to be stilted and awkward, which didn't help the story and certainly didn't help Evelyn's likability.
I won't be reading the rest of the series.
