Killing Matt Cooper (The Knight Chronicles #1)
Those of you that know me are probably thinking WTF did Shannie read............
While this story was out of my comfort zone, I really did find it brilliantly written. Samuel Knight is a FEMA crisis worker by day and your friendly serial killer at night. He has numerous alias identities, including Samuel Knight, which help to insure nobody can identify him as the Greek Death.....yes that's what the press has named him. Knight doesn't like it e...more
Samuel Knight is a serial killer, and why I love these personalities, in books, is beyond me.
No really…I am fine and I will keep selling that story.
Okay, all joking aside. I really enjoy these reads because we get to see the mindset of these serial killers. Some of Samuel’s lines in this book had me laughing out loud for example:
"I watched Ashley tell her professional wrestler boyfriend she loved him before going home to her husband and two children. Even thoug ...more
Reading this brief novel has left me scared, confused, & not wanting to touch the subject of Crazy.
What made this even more disturbing for me, was his voice. Everything about his outer packaging, just screams "I'm a nice, decent, hard working, compassionate guy!" But his thoughts are the most vile, dark & sinister thoughts ever. What makes this the most frightening is that he could be anybody. He could be my neighbor across t ...more
Dexter Morgan has some competition and one of his fake persona's is named Samuel my Knight In shining armor. Okay, it's just Samuel Knight, I added that other shit because his character just got me out of my book funk.
Full review to come later.. I need to read Killing Sam Knight ASAP.... which is currently free btw http://www.amazon.com/Killing-Sam-Kni...
I am not sure what is happening to me but right now I am just loving these crazy serial killing men. I love their thought process. I especially love when they have a sweet side that tries to take over their darkness but always comes up short. If you really want to suck me in, add a kick ass woman that has the same darkness hidden inside but remains in total control until she finds a man that can unleash her beast!!
Killing Matt Cooper is a Dexter meet Cri ...more
Killing Matt Cooper was intense and fast paced. Intended for mature audiences, there were plenty of dark and twisted scenes that shocked even me.
Very well written with some likeable and oh so unlikeable characters, this novel is not for the faint at heart. If you dare...go for it.
Samuel Knight likes big boobs, blonde hair, porn, and one night stands. He always brings flowers and ends the evening with pure love's kiss. He may also be a deranged serial killer but, hey nobody’s perfect.
If you are looking for a story that will grab your attention while entertaining you with the inner thoughts of a quirky, erratic, and in my opinion, enjoyable sociopath then look no further.
Killing Matt Cooper was a story that I had expected to be scary, however even ...more
I normally enjoy stories that are told through the viewpoint of someone you can feel for—you know, a good guy or girl. Being that I knew this story would be told through the eyes of someone truly evil, then I got past that and found myself both intrigued and utterly disgusted at the same time. I do like a good disturbing thriller after all. And this book certainly delivered on that.
Fearlessly written, the author hold ...more
This book is dark. Even after finishing this book I can't get it out of my head. It was that good. Dark and twisted good. There's moments when I wanted him to get caught but by the end of the book I wanted to keep going on his journey with him. How fucked up is that? I'm not sure but, I really enjoyed this short story.
This is one of those books your either going to love or hate.
Being a fan of the darker side, I did enjoyed this.
Its a short story told from a serial killers POV. He explains at the start about his first kill. His first love, my love. We don't really know what triggers it off or why until later in the book and also where the tittle Killing Matt Cooper comes in.
He always tries to justify his killings in some way. He doesn't kill any women only a certain type of woman and he knows as soon as he ...more
This is a psychological crime novel, 'whydunnit' as much as anything else, but with some exciting plot twists and, while pleasingly tightly written, with sufficient detail to hold the attention of readers of high quality fiction as well as of page-turning thrillers.
My general criteria for a five star rating are either that the book is superbly written with few irritants or very well-written with lots to say. This book lies mainly in the former category as a brilliantly writ ...more
Utterly insane! You'll get the inner perspective of a (I hope imaginary) serial killer. He kills girls. Who are just like his Love, his first love.
We get to know his alias, Sam Knight, here is my Sam:
So, in his free time he follows and kills girls who are cheaters or whoring behind their boyfriends back... And, in daytime, he is a FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) crisis manager who goes around the country, and whenever there is a crisis situati ...more
This novella was well written, fast paced and dark.
He is the quintessential sociopath; from his warped sense of entitlement, to his lack of remorse and guilt, to his shallow emotions and lack of empathy - he has such a dark and twisted mind. He prides himself on feeling powerful and in control when ot ...more
I am on Goodreads for the social aspect of my reading habit not to be a guinea pig for authors if I wanted to do that Id log into my un-used Net gallery account.
I wish the author all the luck with his future work.
Cassian's prose grabs you by the throat from the opening sentence and doesn't let go. His hero or anti-hero hides in plain sight as a FEMA worker. It's a disturbing story that should appeal to fans of 'American Psycho' and dark stories in general.
This was a very quick read, but I could not put it down. I can't honestly say I liked it due to the brutal and disturbing nature, but it was most certainly very engrossing.
I have read several reviews complaining about repetition, but I have to say that didn't bother me in the slig ...more
I was interested in learning more about the mindset of someone who could carry out these horrendous acts. Did he feel remorse? What causes someone to flip out and do the things he did? Many questions.
When the monster raped and killed the love of his life, he realized who he wa ...more
Killing Matt Cooper is very short book (about 25,000 words -- either a long novelette or short novella) which I got for free on smashwords.com.
Cassian's style is interesting. At first, I was put off by the opening. It begins with a super-creepy and unsettling revelation by the first-person narrato ...more
The only aspect of the story that I wish had been e ...more
Not really my regular reading genre although I do have a peripheral interest in genuine serial killers and their inner ego's, which is what quite probably drew me to the story in the first place.
I'm not sure I found the inner psyche believable for a serial killer or the coincidences that developed around his 'new love interest ...more
The story is told from the point of view of a serial killer whose alias is Samuel Knight, a FEMA worker. He vividly describes the killings he has committed and takes you along for a couple of them. An unforeseen accident leads the police and FBI to the bodies o ...more
Killing Matt Cooper is the story of Samuel Knight, a FEMA crisis worker with a difference. You see Samuel Knight has a secret, he is a serial killer. He has a past that haunts him, to his very core, he raped and killed his one true love. On that day something snapped inside of him emerging as an animal with a thirst for the same feelings from his one true love. But no matter how hard he tries he can not find it, so he goes on killing in the hope one day it w ...more
That is how this book starts. I would label that as one of the most disturbing and powerful opening lines ever. The disturbing doesn't end here. The protagonist is a serial killer who recreates the killing of "the love of his life" over and over again in search for ... whatever it is that serial killers want to feel when they kill someone in just the right way. I won't pretend to understand. I don't. And I find it super disturbing and creepy. The protagonist was cr ...more
Thrillers are usually not my genre but this one just sounded so interesting I thought I would give it a try and I am glad that I did. I was intrigued by the plot and the POV being that of a serial killer, this isn't something that I have read before so I was eager to find out how John Cassian thinks a killer may tick.
I was warned that I was going to be disturbed by this book, I have to say that I wasn't. Not sure what that says a ...more
