My rating: 4 of 5 stars

My Recommendation: ★★★★★★★★★✰
(I received this book free in exchange for my honest review)

As a lover of thrillers and mysteries, I have to say I was quite intrigued with this book. Though I have read a few with a similar take, few have kept me on the ropes like this one. I quite enjoy books that do the dual POV, especially when one of the POV's is of the killer.

That brings me to where I feel like this story missed the target by a smidge. There was for me, just not enough of that killer POV. Though I enjoy reading about David's daily life, even when it was, dull. I believe those duller moments and lulls in David's life, could have been taken by the killer's POV. It would have kept the story moving at a steady pace, adding just a little bit of a extra layer to bring this already dark twisted read home. Instead, I felt like there was this choppy feel at times that drew me out of the story.
Outside of that, this book did bring a newness to the pages that kept me reading and engaged. Time was spent on devolving the characters; giving it a realistic feel. I like the foreshadowing that appeared not long after the first murder. I kind of connect the dots rather quick after that, thought I didn't quite know who the killer was until later on. I also liked how that foreshadowing was linked throughout the book. Almost like a tragic play, or rather, a tragic poem that was being acted and written at the same time. Oddly realistic, and fascinating, cause we all know a pair like this.

Overall this is a well written book that will keep you on the edge of your seat. There will be times where you don't know who's side of the story is real. Who is truly good and who is truly evil. Please take my high recommendation and my stamp of approval that you will get captured by this my twisty read.

Warning: There are themes of animal abuse, SA, drugs, and DA, in this book.
