To Catch A Twisted Killer

At first, they look like suicides. Two bodies within a week--one found floating in New York's East River, another electrocuted in the bathtub. But forensics show that the victims were drugged, then killed. As the death toll grows, so does the brutality of the murders--and the killer dubbed the Flesh Collector continues to prey.

This book was free through Amazon because I subscribe to Amazon Prime. I loved it.

Emma, a loving mother and wife, has a secret buried in her backyard. A teacher who groomed and abused her is buried there, something she did after killing him.

Confused, upset, and charged with the possibility that teacher is still alive, Emma reveals all

A plot that is fairly thin, stretched to a much longer book by descriptions of every item that the main character sees or thinks about. After introducing a great many sub plots, the end of the book leaves most of them hanging with absolutely no resolution or even mention.

The author obviously studied plot development and tried to put most of those ideas into the book. Remember, that in a good plot, whether book, play or movie, if something, such as a gun, is introduced in the first act, by act th

Book #2 in a series by the author, C. E. Lawrence and almost feels like a stand-alone.

I'm a sucker for a good crime story, but this one disappointed me. The writing seemed amateurish and lacked flow. The characters lacked depth. The story lacked a satisfying ending. In short, the book was lacking. Lacking, lacking, lacking. Particularly frustrating was the way the entire story foreshadowed the discovery of the main character's long-missing sister, or at least the capture of her kidnapper, but neither of those things happened -- the story just sort of ended quickly, as though the ...more

Well, in my opinion, the best thing about this book was the end!! The book was boring and slow, it took me days to read it because I just didn't want to. It picked up at the end but not enough that I would read this author again.

A page turner! It kept me on the edge of my chair throughout. C. E. Lawrence has created a cast of unforgettable characters. I look forward to her upcoming third book in this series.

primarily predictable until the author decides to dabble in the ridiculous and completely change the storyline at the end.
