~~Into the mind of a Serial Killer~~~
Reviewed in the United States on June 1, 2020
I have not read a novel that was as intense, intriguing and thrilling for a long, long time. The author was able to engage me from the beginning of this one and the twists and turns kept on coming. At times the pace was frenzied for me.
Family secrets are a major part of this one and the reader will not be able to see the repercussions until later..much later. Reni Fisher was a profiler for the FBI and an excellent one until she took medical leave. Her parents, Benjamin and Rosalind play, a major role in this novel, as well... Daniel Ellis, Homicide Detective, also has an intriguing part.
The author has a firm grasp on human nature and delves deeply into the mind of a serial killer. Several scenes in an autopsy suite will allow the reader to gain knowledge about how DNA evidence is gained after death and also how fingerprints may be obtained many years later. (I always appreciate learning new facts when reading a novel and this one had many).
The descriptions of the Mojave Desert were outstanding and the scenes with backgrounds in nature were exquisite. Characters are well developed and were coupled with a multi-layered plot which indeed created a fascinating novel.
One quote which I loved....'..,There was no starting over for people...only progression'. This, I feel, is so true in life and can apply it to my own.
This is my First Read selection for June 2020. And, will add that this was an excellent choice for me and definitely one of my favorites so far..
Most highly recommended.
