Kansas City Countdown (The Precinct: Bachelors in Blue) - Julie Miller

First - cover guy. Nice. And in a suit too. Proof that they don't have to be half naked to look good.

 

:ahem

 

I've read too many of the general type of book of late to really enjoy it. Not the book's fault really. Some things I did question - if they knew her keys had been stolen, why stay at her house? If they caught the gardener painting over bricks (which wasn't actually his job), one of which later proved to have blood on it, why didn't they become suspicious immediately? Why do these guys never enlist a bit more assistance with the guard duty?

This, btw, is as much a general commentary on romantic suspenses as a comment on this particular book. Seems like most of the heroes couldn't actually find their ass with both hands.

 

So the h got attacked and dumped in an alley. The h just happened to be a criminal defense attorney. The H found her. The H had just gotten his ego bruised in a courtroom earlier that day by her. Irony.

 

It seemed obvious to me who the attacker was when they got to her house. I just never quite grasped why they stayed there, why he wasn't investigated because his actions seemed strange. Why... well, you get the idea.

Kansas Mail Order Brides, Annie Boone
Kansas Mail Order Brides: A Sweet and Cl... Kansas Mail Order Brides: A Sweet and Clean Boxed Set - Annie Boone

I really enjoyed this whole set of Clean, Historical, Western Romances. I voluntarily chose to review it. I've rated all of the 14 stories a 4.5* or 5* ratings. They were shorter stories and were great for not having a lot of time to read. And they all left me with a good feeling at the end. Nice job.

Rain In Kansas, Annie Boone
Mail Order Bride: Rain in Kansas: Sweet ... Mail Order Bride: Rain in Kansas: Sweet and Clean Western Historical Romance (A Kansas Mail Order Bride Story Book 11) - Annie Boone

I really enjoyed this Clean, Historical, Western Romance. I voluntarily chose to review this. This deals with a relative selling a cousin for money. I cheered this heroine on as she found a way to get out of this situation. A bit of action in this and a lot of determination. I really liked how it ended.

Don't Think We're in Kansas by phantisma
Don't Think We're in Kansas - phantisma Don't Think We're in Kansas - phantisma
An interesting crossover fic with Sam and Dean being rescued from an alien planet by Colonel John Sheppard and crew. Unfortunately the 'Sagare' have committed the Winchesters to slavery as a result of their trespassing and John has to buy the guys in order to release them. There follows a bonding ceremony that ties the trio together using alien technology.

Robert Berdella: The True Story of the Kansas City Butcher by Jack Rosewood
Robert Berdella: The True Story of The Kansas City Butcher: Historical Serial Killers and Murderers (True Crime by Evil Killers Book 5) - Jack Rosewood

Spoiler Alert!!! 

 

Robert Berdella: The True Story of the Kansas City Butcher by Jack Rosewood, Historical Serial Killers & Murderers, True Crime by Evil Killers Volume 5 detailed the monstrous tortures he inflicted on at least six victims.  This is a brutal book & difficult to read.  He dismembered his victims & no complete bodies were found.  "He kept detailed notes on his exploits..." He also took Polaroid photographs of the torture.

 

His early family life was normal & uneventful.  He was bullied because he had to wear thick glasses because of his poor eyesight.  He was above average in intelligence but sometimes seemed rude & condescending.

 

His first victim, Jerry Howell, choked on his own vomit after being drugged heavily & raped repeatedly.  It was ten months before he had the nerve to kill again & his second victim was Robert Sheldon.  He tortured him without mercy & finally suffocated him with a plastic bag over his head.  This time he kept his head as a trophy & buried it in the garden in his backyard.  Victim number three was Mark Wallace & that took place only two months after he had killed Sheldon.  After almost a year since his first victim, he officially became a serial killer.

 

Walter Ferris was victim number four.  He wanted to keep him prisoner for a longer period of time so needed to temper the degrees of his torture.  His time was brief but Berdella wasn't disappointed since he believed Ferris had set him up with the police for a drug bust.

 

His fifth victim was Todd Stoops.  Word had spread on the street that Berdella was to be avoided because he liked his sex rough & that Jerry Howell's disappearance was related to him.  Stoops was a prisoner for thirteen days before his death.

 

Eleven months after Todd Stoops was killed, he finally found Larry Pearson, his sixth victim.  It was 1987.

 

He kept him captive for nearly two months until Todd bit him & Berdella had to go to the hospital for stitches.  He needed to stay but told the doctor he had to check on a dog that had just had puppies & would return.  While a taxi waited he suffocated Stoops with a plastic bag & left him while he returned to the hospital.  Stoops had been dead three days by the time he returned from the hospital.  Berdella had kept the air conditioning turned on full blast but the smell of death had become an issue.

 

April 2, 1998 one of his victims, Chris Bryson, after four days of captivity, jumped out the window to escape.  The Kansas City Police took over the investigation.

 

I gave this book three stars because of the incorrectly spelled words & homonymns throughout.  It was well researched but the evil it described was horrific. 

 

I received a complimentary kindle copy from Amazon.  This did not change my opinion for this review.
