The Strangler has struck for the fourth time in New York City, and FBI Agent Madeaux and NYPD Detective Panetta have to work together to find him and stop him. Every murder is in a different place; Harlem, the Bronx, Manhattanville, and now Brooklyn. And the only things connecting the murders are the way the victims died. Asphyxiation by plastic bag, no struggle, and a shoe missing from the victim at each crime scene.

At the same time, in Woodbridge Virginia, RCK P.I.s Sean Rogan and Patrick Kincaid are on the hunt for missing teen Kirstin Benton; a girl who runs away often but always returns after a weekend away, but hasn't come back this time. Rogan knows for sure that there's something off about Kirstin's room, but he's not sure what. So he goes to his girlfriend, Patrick Kincaid’s sister Lucy, for help. The first thing she notices is the strangeness of a webcam pointed right at Kirstin's bed. And while Patrick is objecting to his sister being a part of their case and dating his womanizing partner, Lucy remains a part of the search for Kirstin.

Of course, these cases aren't unrelated. When Jessica, the girl killed in Brooklyn, and Kirstin both end up being linked to the Party Girl website, the two teams collide at the warehouse where Jessica's death took place. Lucy, however, serves to be the one who finds the link between the two cases that no one else sees.

Will Sean and Lucy be able to work as a team when it is necessary? Also will Lucy’s past make it to hard for her to do what is needed to find the killer?

I enjoyed this book but felt that is moved at a slow pace. I had to find out who done it and just how Sean and Lucy would make things work. Kiss Me, Kill Me by Allison Brennan is a well written story and it did keep me on edge but just took forever to find out. Not a keeper for me.
