Synopsis/Blurb (taken from Goodreads):
“The bodies of young women are being left in a triangle of multi-state locations. The killer, in search of The One that will fulfill his unrealistic needs and wants, has placed these bodies on display to be discovered by unsuspecting civilians. The victims all bear similar atrocities: cuts and markings on their bodies; eyes and mouths sewn shut; ears severed.
Police detective Maeve Brennan is chosen to lead a multi-agency task force to investigate these brutal murders. FBI Agent David Willinger is attached to the task force, but he and his team of profilers have been able to add little value. The team finds itself stymied, with no clear direction to pursue, when Jonathon Boyd, an investigative journalist, presents himself to the task force informing them he possesses important information related to the investigation. With critical holes now filled in, plus a vital find by Willinger’s team, they formulate a strategy to apprehend the killer, but the plan quickly goes south.
Will the team be able to regroup in time or will the killing go on?”
My Thoughts & Review
Firstly, I would like to start by thanking Rich Kisielewski for sending me a copy of this book, after contacting me asking if would be interested in reading and reviewing it. Rich sent me this book in but when I picked it up the first time I got ill and didn’t manage to read it then one thing after another happened and I didn’t manage to pick it up until now.
I really enjoyed the premises of the story. However, it did take some time to get going. Also I felt it took a little to long for the plot between the killer and the victim to develop and get going. But when it eventually did I was hooked and started to enjoy the book.
I think the main reason I found it difficult to get into was because at the beginning I had to get used to the writing style. I felt that at the beginning the conversations between the different characters were a bit too long and also I thought they didn’t flow like conversations should. But, as the book progressed everything started to flow and I found it much easier to read.
Most of the characters were likeable and my favourite was Detective Maeve Brennan. I thought she was best out of all them. There were also one or two characters who I found annoying, and at times I felt like a I just felt
While reading it is very evident that the author has thoroughly done his research, and although I did find some faults in this book, overall I found it an interesting and enjoyable read, and one that I would recommend. I will definitely look into reading more books by Rich Kisielewski in the near future.
