@LivreAmour217, would you be able to suggest any more good crime thrillers to read? I think I'd like some action-packed page-turners right now. They do take my mind off stress!

Sounds good! I like the fact that the author manages to tie each crime together in an original and strangely convincing way.

Good job on the review!

Great review! I like books that include real-life events so I am going to take a second look at this one. The plot certainly sounds interesting and unique. Although it seems weird that some of the chapters are only two paragraphs, I guess that's better than having chapters that are too long and draggy. :)

I like books involving someone seeking the truth. This sounds like just that. Wonderful review!

I didn't think I'd be interested in this book, but your review really makes me want to check it out. The alternating viewpoints with past and present sounds really unique and clever. Glad the author was able to pull it off!

I like true crime and I love mystery, this is something I think I would enjoy. I've added the book to my 'to read' shelf, but I have so many books right now and am not ready to give up one for the free book and 5.99 is steep. I will add this one when I clear away a couple Stephen King books. I'm sure I will get to it, the sample was good.

Thank you for the great review! I do love mystery thrillers, especially those that have a psychological twist. It's very impressive that the author took real-life high-profile criminal cases to incorporate into his book. Congratulations to the author for receiving such a positive review!
