I enjoyed this thriller, which had good writing, an interesting plot, and decent character development. The only thing that I didn't love about it was the level of graphic violence. Thrillers are my favorite genre, so I am no stranger to the the violence that is necessary to make a good thriller. This one, however, made me squeamish, and I am not a person who gets squeamish. Without knowing that this was the first book of a planned series, I was disappointed at how the book ended. I really wanted things resolved 100%, but I understand that if this is part of a series, there are going to have to be some unresolved things. Still, I don't know if I could stomach the next book in the series, despite the fact that I enjoyed this one. ( )
Loved being with the mind of a killer. The darkness definitely gratifies my interest even more. the twist, which I did not see coming. Took awhile to understand it all, blindsided me.
I definitely couldn't listen to this audiobook at night. It's told from two points of view, that of the killer and the other from Wren the medical examiner. I can't recommend this for the faint of heart...of which I may be starting to join!
I gave this book 5 minutes. Somehow I didn't know that this book is written in multiple POV so we read about the awful serial killer. I hate that. Worse, the book is written in the present tense: she sees this, he hears that. I am OK with present tense writing in some circumstances but this was awful.
Short but intense first installment of a serial killer thriller mystery.
Dr. Wren Muller is a forensic pathologist working for the Medical Examiner's office in Louisiana. The city is plagued with a psycho murderer who is leaving some grisly scenes for the local police. The many victims have been tortured in ways that seem like medical experimentation gone wrong. Soon it is obvious to Wren that she has met the killer before.
This was narrated from two points of view - that of the criminal and that of Wren. The story was fast and there was not much depth or history given of the main characters. The writing was a little stilted and the author had several phrases that became repetitive, especially when characters were snickering, snarling, or sniggering -- seemed really out of place. Not a fan of the writing and the ending was incomplete and abrupt thus paving the way for the next installment. Not sure if I will read it or not. The plot is predictable and there was no huge tension or suspense so I doubt I will bother as the conclusion seems obvious. Nothing new here.
Not really recommending.
