Good job. Probably the best crime/murder/suspense book I’ve read on here.
Read the story now
- The plot was great. Stories about psychotic murderers can be played out, but when a game/“fun” is involved it can be entertaining, and that is what this does.
- The uniqueness of this story in that you get multiple perspectives, both the detective & the victim. Also the child in the story, Sam, makes for a good twist from your more classic “victim always by himself” type novel. That was good to see that character through his connection with somebody other than the killer.
Needs a little work:
- the detail is fantastic in some parts of the story, but can be a little short in others.
- sometimes the characters seem a little off. What I mean is that within a day the detective finds out his son is being kidnapped by a psycho, plays a game to save his life, and then just heads to a bar. I feel like if that were my son I would be up a wall crazy without an ounce of rest. Also, sometimes the characters can come off lacking some depth. The female victim is happy to see her father-in-law, and then mad at him, and then indifferent all within the same page without the father-in-law having done anything to affect her.
Altogether, good book, and one I will continue to read as edits and add-ons are done. Good job!
