Wasn’t sure about this book, but thought I’d give it a Go,
A female cop, loses her partner and best friend on the first pages, the Killer is not the kind of guy you take home to meet Daddy,
Retribution being important, this guy kills the family of anyone who crosses him, so when one of his “ Girls” a teenager, comforts another girl, he sees it as betrayal, her whole family are executed in horrific fashion, and she’s made to watch the video of it, along with the other girls to teach the a lesson,
Meanwhile, Mr Nice Guy kidnaps our Cop Heroine’s teenage daughter, and threatens to kill her,
He later kidnaps our cop lead’s father, himself an ex cop,
Well I won’t say what else happens, Don’t want to spoil the plot,
Lets just say that Melanie Comley leaves room for a sequel at the end, and why is that good … Simply put this is a brilliant intriguing thriller, Not a family book to read to the kids, but if you want an absorbing story of Kidnap, Rape, Murder and Torture, well this is certainly the book for you,
The characters develop into believable realistic people, the depravity is as realistic as it could get, but it is not all gore, there is a very well crafted story, hints of romance, marital discord and trouble with the kids, so that’s normal life right?
The author gives us our moneys worth, even though she sells it at a quarter the price it should be,
I’m waiting for the sequel, and for it to make the Best Seller List,
One you shouldn’t miss!
