Evil at Heart is the third novel by Chelsea Cain about Gretchen Lowell, a female serial killer. I've read the first two books as well, and just like the others, this one was nice to read. The writing style ant the story are very fast and there is a lot of suspense in the story. The relationship b...

This is the third Archie/Gretchen novel by Chelsea Cain that I have read. It seems that each one drops by half a star. This time, we do not focus on their relationship so I was a bit let down. The change in storyline is initially offputting even though it is still very well written.After my initi...

While Heartsick was a nifty twist on the serial killer novel and Sweetheart was a good if predictable follow-up, the third installment of the Grechen Lowell series loses the excitement. Evil at Heart misses on many levels. Gretchen Lowell barely shows up, Archie Sheridan descends from tragic to path...

But there was less Gretchen, which I was glad of, and I was happy at the distance that Archie is starting to make for himself.I think it was weak that Gretchen was, AGAIN, connected to thi...

Disturbing. But probably very close to reality in the way that she portrays the public's view of a serial killer, the media's obsession with news that isn't really news and how it affects people. I actually found the sub-plot about the media and public spectacle about Gretchen more intriguing than...

Much as I enjoyed the first two books, this one kinda (okay seriously) squicked me out in places--almost as if the author felt she HAD to push the squick-o-meter -- by design or because she was forced. And like in her first two novels, Cain can't quite make the secondary storyline come together (or...
