It just looks like something is missing .... do they forgot to :print the end ??????
I even checked Amazon to see if there was a number 2 book.
A book with no ending has no interest, so please change the ending or write a next chapter don't let the case unsolved with so many unanswered questions.

I very much enjoyed the offbeat settings in the book. Rather than setting the story in Las Vegas or Los Angeles, Ms. Churchill chose more out-lying settings: Bullhead City, Arizona, with its nearby Davis Dam and casinos, the quiet Orange County suburb of Yorba Linda (childhood Quaker home of Richard Nixon), and the island of Catalina. She clearly knows these locales very well and brings them vividly to life. She uses the dam, located about 70 miles south of Hoover Dam on the Colorado River, as a very clever and chilling crime scene.
For its gripping plot and complex characters, I would have given THE 7TH VICTIM five stars. However, it has a cliffhanger ending, which is essentially no ending at all. The story simply stopped, leaving me frustrated. I realize it is the first book in a series, but I felt quite disappointed that the story was incomplete. I would point to Robert B. Parker's "Spenser" series or to J. D. Robb's "In Death" series as fine examples of carrying terrific characters through a very long series of books, but still giving closure to each individual novel. Particularly in a mystery/crime thriller, the case must be solved and wrapped up, or the reader feels cheated. Characters can continue to have unresolved conflicts in their private lives to carry over to the next book, but the case should be closed.
Nevertheless, if the reader is prepared for the cliffhanger, THE 7TH VICTIM can be enjoyed as an entertaining, insightful, and goose bump-filled story.
