Goodreads Synopsis
Three casinos. Three bodies. Three days.

After a string of brutal murders in Las Vegas, Cassie Hobbes and the Naturals are called in to investigate. But even with the team's unique profiling talents, these murders seem baffling: unlike many serial killers, this one uses different methods every time. All of the victims were killed in public, yet the killer does not show up on any tape. And each victim has a string of numbers tattooed on their wrist. Hidden in the numbers is a code—and the closer the Naturals come to unraveling the mystery, the more perilous the case becomes.

Meanwhile, Cassie is dealing with an equally dangerous and much more painful mystery. For the first time in years, there's been a break in her mother's case. As personal issues and tensions between the team mount, Cassie and the Naturals will be faced with impossible odds—and impossible choices.

Jennifer Lynn Barnes became one of my favourite authors when I read the first The Naturals book. Because of these books, I started the tv show Criminal Minds, and fell in love. When I heard that book three, All In, wouldn't be published in the UK, I knew I'd have to order a copy online, and that's just what I did. I devoured this book in only three hours, and have fallen in love with Barnes' writing all over again.

Cassie has now worked on a few cases with the FBI, and has found her place, and her people. After three murders in as many days in Las Vegas, her and the other Naturals are called in to assist the FBI case. Cassie, recovering from her recent kidnapping, finds herself discovering that her mother's disappearance may not be all that it first appeared. We learn more about her fellow Naturals too. After hearing the backstories of Cassie and Dean in the previous books, in this book we learnt more about Sloane, and her upbringing. Sloan has been a favourite of mine from the start, and I loved seeing and learning more about her. With every book, each character becomes more real, and I seriously hope that there will be more books in this series, if only to learn about Michael and Lia more.

That'll bring me onto the end of the book. The whole series is about Cassie, and mainly about her mother's disappearance, and this book just raised more questions, than answers. The book ended with such a cliffhanger, that it is almost implausible to consider that we won't find out the truth about her mother. I'm dying for another The Naturals book, and know I'm not the only on - Disney-Hyperion, please publish more!
