Cover Wars: cop vs vigilante detective. @JChaseNovelist VS @MichelleBellon

This is a "meme" started by Book Whore. Cover Wars takes two covers and puts them against each other. I tried to pick books that have similar themes (and maybe even similar covers). This week: cop vs vigilante detective.

Dark Mind by Jennifer Chase

Locals aren't talking as a serial killer now stalks the island, taking women in a brutal frenzy of ancient superstitions and folklore. Local cops are unprepared for what lies ahead. In a race against the clock, Emily and her team must identify the killer before time runs out.
