๏ ๏ ๏ My Thoughts ๏ ๏ ๏

 

I didn't like this quite as much as the first book but it was still a solid follow-up to The Girl in 6E. Do Not Disturb has stepped up the romance a bit, between Deanna and the UPS guy, Jeremy. Also, we get to know the elusive hacker, Mike, somewhat. There is a new dilemma with a customer of Deanna's who just got out of jail for Rape and is hell-bent on meeting up her, despite telling him repeatedly that she doesn't do that sort of thing. Things escalate quickly, and she has to deal with the consequences of that. All of this is going on while Deanna tries to deal with her need to kill, plus her newfound need to escape her apartment.

 

The ending was definitely missing something for me, things tied up a little too quickly and I still wish this had a male narrator for the male parts of the book...but honestly, Jorjeana Marie does do a stellar job as the voice of Deanna Madden.

๏ ๏ ๏  My Thoughts ๏ ๏ ๏ 

 
A very different kind of thriller about a twenty-something girl who believes she has homicidal tendencies just like her Mother had.  She also makes a living as a cam-girl on the internet.   Deanna Madden is unlike anyone I've ever read about, she is seriously disturbed, yet absolutely compelling.  The Author has not only researched her topics thoroughly she has also put in meticulous details, that make this story feel genuine.  From her tower of boxes that she has in her apartment from ordering everything she needs online, and having it delivered via UPS to the scandalous, yet oddly educational life of a cam-girl. 

There are two separate stories going on and eventually, they converge into one.  That convergence is when the story really gets interesting.  Jorjeana Marie is perfect for the voice of Deanna but they should have had a male narrator for the male voices, having Jorjeana voice the male parts also, just made this a bit hard to separate them from one another.  Overall, I actually really connected with this, and I wasn't sure that I would.  It is one of these most sexual books I ever read/listen without any actual sex.

Finished it!
Kill the Angel: A Novel (Caselli and Torre Series) - Sandrone Dazieri

I think this was better than the first book, but there were definitely some rambly moments that could have been dispensed with without losing anything. And there was still quite a bit of telling rather than showing, though this could be down to the translation from the Italian rather than lazy writing.

 

But I enjoyed it, and thanks to the enormous cliffhanger ending, I will definitely pick up the third book when it's published.

Kill the Angel: A Novel (Caselli and Torre Series) - Sandrone Dazieri

There was enough to like about Kill the Father for me to pick up the second book in what Dazieri has stated will be a series.

 

And I think this one is better than the first. Mainly because it is more tightly edited. Kill the Father had a tendency to wander off with long descriptions that didn't really add to the plot, but Kill the Angel starts with a bang and so far it hasn't let up.

Kill the Angel: A Novel (Caselli and Torre Series) - Sandrone Dazieri

In Rome, a high-speed train hurtles into the city’s main station with a carriage full of dead bodies, the macabre discovery of which falls to Deputy Police Commissioner Colomba Caselli. Subsequently, the police receive a claim of responsibility and the threat of more murders to come. But neither Caselli nor her eccentrically brilliant ally, Dante Torre, are yet ready to buy the terrorist link. As the two maverick investigators puncture the façade of what the perpetrator wants everyone to believe, they come close to dying several times. Not for the first time, Dante’s bizarre childhood, during which he was kept confined for years in a concrete silo, enables him to see what others miss, and in this case, to connect with a kindred spirit of sorts, a woman named Giltine who experienced an equally bizarre childhood from which she emerged damaged, lethal, and full of murderous intent. Adding to Giltine’s eerie fierceness is that, as the victim of a rare mental illness, she believes she’s already dead. She’s unacquainted with fear. And that makes her the most formidable foe Colomba and Dante have faced yet. As the story climaxes, the duo finds themselves utterly on their own, on the outs with law enforcement and the only ones with a chance to make sure the waters of Venice don’t turn red with blood.

 

Diving straight into book 2.
