It was so badly written it was painful, and after about halfway through, I decided I was not this much of a masochist. I love serial killer books, and I love thrillers so I had high, high hopes.
The Serial Killer Chronicles
What do I mean about badly written? Just read the first 3 chapters. I don't have anything against the characters, though nothing, even halfway through, makes me want to root or even like Ellie. But my main objection is the infodumps. A thriller, especially, as this was advertised to be, shouldn't slam the forward momentum of the story to a dead stop to recount the protagonist's entire working career.
It's unlikely that in Ellie's POV she'd suddenly, with so much on her mind, be thinking of gee and this is how I opened Karen's Boutique, instead of, yeah, wow, how's about that daughter's birthday party? The problems with this are that 1 it's not relevant to the story 2 it stops the forward momentum of the story, killing suspense and 3 it doesn't even give me information to help me like or understand the character!!
It's the stuff you cook up when you're in a writing workshop about designing characters, but the author apparently forgot the end of the lesson--that most of those details stay 'under the surface' of your story, until and unless there's a story-driven need to know. The good guys are all And the bad guy is so utterly bad you really can't explain why nobody in this book's world is like wowsers there's somethin' seriously off about that guy hmmmmm.
So the characters are flat and uninteresting. In full disclosure, I got this book for free as a kindle deal, and thank god, because if I'd paid money for this, I'd be kind of upset. It's sad when I put a book down with no intention of ever picking it up again when the main character is in such dire straits and I.
Where to even start? First, the repetitive use of, "Disneyland the happiest place in the World! Minnie Mouse is a silly name to use over and over again when trying to write an awesome little badass. Would her friends not drop one of the names by now and just call her Minnie or Mouse? Oh and by the way, people do in fact die and get hurt at Disneyland. The author taught college courses!! If you're looking for a little romance without any graphic sex, this book comes close. If you're looking for a good read with likeable characters, a female heroine backed up by a strong male counterpart and an innocent child thrown in to tug at your heart strings, then read this book.
The villain is evil incarnate, but the author doesn't dwell on that aspect or make it the entire story. It's well written and fast pace If you're looking for an edge of your seat thrill ride, this book comes close. It's well written and fast paced with a plot that keeps it interesting. Mar 26, Cheryl rated it it was amazing.
Ohmygosh Enes Smith has a very descriptive vocabulary when writing his novels. I was on the edge of my seat nearly the entire book. The final scene that ends the case again had me holding my breath. Wow tears in my eyes worried for the good guys playing that evil doesn't win. Last page I can catch my breath. Most likely for just a short time as I am looking for another book of Enes Smith. If you like to be terrified if only for a short time in the safety of your own h Another suspenseful success! If you like to be terrified if only for a short time in the safety of your own home read all his books.

The rest of the book is about escape and the pursuit to apprehend the real killer. Sadly, the detective's sister is not his first, or last victim. I found that the author over egged the pie a bit with his build up and this detracted a This book took a long while to grab me but the last pages were riveting. I found that the author over egged the pie a bit with his build up and this detracted a bit for me. Nonetheless, this is not a bad read. Feb 20, Mary Quire rated it really liked it. As crime novels go, the plot was very catching.
Smith did a great job with his serial killer, his story, his motives, all of it. In fact, I believe the killer completely out shadowed the main characters of the story, leaving them more like empty pawns to be move around within the plot. I do think, overall, the book is chilling and fast placed enough to make an awesome movie. I can just see the attorney, David Attinger played by someone like Jack Black. It would be awesome.

Almost every other chapter had a version of it. Well, if we knew what the future would bring, we might all crawl in a hole or run away to Disney or a desert island. But then we wouldn't be living, we would just be existing. I am sorry to the author, if they see this. I am sorry but it was giving me a head ache. Dec 11, Cynthia Jones rated it it was amazing.

It received four stars because I feel the author could have and should have revealed more facts about the killer before the end. What really drove him to such madness? What was he doing with the turtle shells and alligators? Oct 08, April Taylor rated it liked it.

I enjoyed it, but it wasn't as good as the first book,so I'll have to give it three stars. I would have given it a higher mark if it had explored the psychosis of the killer a little more. Of all of the characters, I think he was the least three dimensional.
