A cruel and sinister killer is targeting Edinburgh's most powerful women, his twisted sense of superiority driving him to satisfy his depraved sexual appetite. He revels in the pain and suffering he inflicts on his unsuspecting victims but a twist of fate and an overwhelming will to survive by one victim ruins his plans for a reign of terror. His tormented prey will need all her courage if she is to survive the hunt.
A very interesting read. Gruesome but interesting. A great story line, that will have you gripped from the first few pages. When a book has you holding your breath within the first few pages, you know it’s got your attention and going to be difficult to put down,. This is one of those books.
I do have to say, I couldn’t decide on this book, into which Genre it should be. It varies, from ~Erotic Thriller, to Erotic Horror, to Horror Thriller.
In parts this book really does have you holding your breath, and wanting to reach out and help the victims. You want to scream at them and tell them what to do.
My feelings on this book changed throughout the book. It really did capture me, and the story line of the killer which is being hunted is just brilliant. I can’t help though being slightly put off with all the sex scenes. I really don’t think it was needed in this story. The actual story itself was enough, and getting to know the characters could have been just done just as good without the sex. I’m by no means a prude, but to me it was really not needed. That aside as I said I really did enjoy this book, and I’m looking forward to reading the next one, which I believe is due out real soon.
This book I have to say is not for the faint hearted. And probably be as well not reading it when you are sat outside and it’s dark, and you are on your own..... (you get the picture) just like I was as I sat outside in the yard at work on my breaks, every noise I heard my head was spinning around. Lol. If you like fluffy wuffy and happy ever after, then this isn’t for you. If you like a good Thriller, with plenty of action then you’ll love this.
I have read that this is LC’S first book. Well wow, if that’s the case, bring on more please.
Right from the beginning you are introduced to what this killer is capable of. And it’s not pretty. He’s evil and Disgusting. One of those that make your skin crawl. Yet on the outside he’s an everyday guy, one you could work with, one you pass in the supermarket. You never know just what people are capable of.
The characters well I guess, you’ll either love them or hate them. Taylor is one of those characters that in parts I really likes her and in other parts she got on my nerves. It will be interesting to see where things go with her.
There is a good mix of the characters private lives as well as work lives, and I felt I was almost getting to know them a little. Hoping the next book will cover them and their lives a little more.
Many thanks to Rachel at Authorite for sending me a copy of this book, I look forward to reading the next one.
