I was caught up in the suspense of this book before I finished the first chapter.
The suspense builds throughout the book in a steady pace that keeps the reader intrigued. Brett is a detective on working a case where someone is mutilating sex offenders and then leaving the body parts to be found in a game and then the edge of your seat suspense builds even more when his daughter is taken by the person committing the crimes.
The author has created an emotional and engaging plot with captivating characters that draw the reader into the story and keeping their attention to the very end. While it does bring home some real issues in today’s society, the disturbing subject is presented in a tasteful, well written way, while still getting the horrifying details across, keeping the reader caught up in the drama.
All the characters are portrayed in a real world, believable manor that adds depth and clarity to the story. The reader can’t help but feel they are part of the story and the emotional turmoil created in this thriller. Despite the fact that Brett is caught up in several conflicts at once, everything flows smoothly from one scene to the next without any confusion.
I am very impressed with the way the author concluded this gripping tale of suspense and drama by continuing the story after the ending of the conflict with such a heartwarming ending that gives the reader a taste of Brett’s future. Michelle debut novel is a hit and I will be looking forward to reading more written by her in the future.
