"The Peace Killers", by Ty Patterson
"The Peace Killers" - Ty Patterson

Zeb Carter # 2

This is another riveting story hard to put down. Mr. Patterson is at the top of his game and has provided once more a fast paced, exciting adventure played out by his most loveable although deadly characters: Zeb and the twin sisters Beth and Meghan. No worries, this second book can be read on its own merits. 

The plot is as current as today’s news: a plan for peace between Israel and Palestine. In this exciting suspense, Israel is on the brink of war when Mossad is accused of murdering Palestinian peace negotiators. Zeb Carter will go to any means to find out who was behind the attack even if all hell breaks loose in doing so…of course it will…and following Zeb is a roller coaster ride from start to finish. I am a huge fan of this author and love how graphic his stories are, I could visualize each scene as clearly as if I was seeing it on the big screen. The action is very suspenseful and I was kept on the edge of my seat following everything and hoping Zeb and the twins will do their magic. In “The Peace Killers”, not only we have terrific protagonists but we also have a huge cast of equally intelligent and capable good and bad characters. Stay alert, concentration is needed to keep track of the comings and goings but it is well worth it.

I join those who say that Mr. Patterson’s books are always relevant and address today’s issues….well-done as always.

This series is a spin off to the Warriors thrillers series

In A Dark Alley, They Meet – Dark Remnants by L K Hill #LKHill
Dark Remnants (Street Games #1) - L.K. Hill

 

 

Oh man, no way could I resist Dark Remnants by L K Hill. I love covers that have an eye on them. Are they really the doorway into someone’s soul?

 

Cover Art:  Kealan Patrick Burke

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Lovin’ that eye on the cover and it makes me feel like someone is watching me.Could it be the female protagonist, Kyra, or Gabe, the detective? Well, I say we all hook up and do some sleuthing.

Abstreuse City is a very dangerous place. L K Hill does a great job describing it. the homeless, the garbage, the smells and the dark, the pimps and the prostitutes.

 

 

Kyra and Gabe’s path collide when she finds out about a plan to turn the cops raid of a drug house into a slaughter house. She knew she had to intervene. And…could they be looking for the same person?

 

I’m not sure who Kyra is looking for, or why she is so curious about the dead prostitute, but I will find out.

 

I wasn’t sure if this would grab me like it did with the funny names, like Slip Mire, but I quickly got involved. Dark Remnants is fast paced and action packed, just the way I like it.

 

Kyra is hard as nails and quick on her feet, yet able to win the trust of others.She is able to read people, using it to her advantage. She looked like a junkie, from her spiky black hair to her black clothes with the hoodie and the track marks inside her elbows. Her eyes are so blue you couldn’t overlook them and she wears makeup to create a sickly pallor. She does no whining and crying, just has an intense desire to get the job done. Love a strong female character!

 

I love it!

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Dark Remnants by L K Hill.

Miami Homicide & The BAU Collaborate – On The Count Of Three by Carolyn Arnold @Carolyn_Arnold
On the Count of Three (Brandon Fisher FBI #7) - Carolyn Arnold

 

 

Carolyn Arnold is one of the best procedural novelists I have ever rad, so I was super excited to read On The Count of Three, the seventh novel in the Brandon Fisher FBI series.

 

Publisher:  Hibbert & Stiles Publishing 

 

On the Count of Three (Brandon Fisher FBI #7)

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Carolyn Arnold’s attention to detail makes her writing so engrossing, riveting, that once I start, I am unable to stop reading until the last page is read.

 

When the Night called to him, he felt the need to find one who is worthy of his attention. I don’t want him focusing on me. He counts down, preparing to wreak havoc on his victim, “One, Two….saved by the bell, the ringing telephone.

 

Brandon, a special agent with the BAU woke to the ringing phone. His girlfriend Becky is a police officer so she knows the drill. Jack, Brandon, Zack and Paige are a team. But for how long?

I always wonder how long a person can last in such a stressful position as the BAU? When is it time to walk away? Do they all become jaded over time? Inured to the evil they deal with?

 

I wonder how and why the villain chose his gruesome method of murder. Serial killers have a reason for what they do, even if no one else can understand it.

 

I am looking forward to watching Brandon’s growth from a rookie to a seasoned agent. It takes time and training and I am a patient person.

 

I feel the agents pain as they arrive…just a little too late. It’s not all glamour, save the day action. The investigation is thorough and we go through it step by step, watching and learning. The tedium of questioning and more questioning and research. Criminal Minds is an awesome TV show that I watch religiously, but it cannot begin to cover…in realistic terms…what Carolyn Arnold covers in her novels.

 

We are all byproducts of our experiences. It’s what each person chooses to do with those experiences that comes to define them.

 

On The Count Of Three by Carolyn Arnold ends in hope and eagerness to see tomorrow and the next day…

 

She writes some of the best procedural novels I have ever read

The wonderful characters more than make up for the implausible elements of the plot.
Unloved, a love story - Katy Regnery

๏ ๏ ๏  Book Blurb ๏ ๏ ๏ 

 

 

My name is Cassidy Porter...

 

My father, Paul Isaac Porter, was executed twenty years ago for the brutal murder of twelve innocent girls.

 

Though I was only eight-years-old at the time, I am aware - every day of my life - that I am his child, his only son.

 

To protect the world from the poison in my veins, I live a quiet life, off the grid, away from humanity.

 

I promised myself, and my mother, not to infect innocent lives with the darkness that swirls within me, waiting to make itself known.

 

It's a promise I would have kept...if Brynn Cadogan hadn't stumbled into my life.

 

Now I exist between heaven and hell: falling for a woman who wants to love me, while all along reminding myself that I must remain...

 

Unloved.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

๏ ๏ ๏  My Review ๏ ๏ ๏ 

 

At first, the narration took some getting used to, especially for Cassidy's voice, with his Maine accent.  Eventually, I did get used to it, which is probably due to the insane amount of love that I had for this guy.  The feels, OMG!  (Maybe, I was partial to Cassidy because I really love that name, after all, I named my daughter Cassidy.)

 

Seriously, I loved these characters, both Cassidy and Brynn pull at the heartstrings, and I was totally rooting for them...and then the twist at the end comes about and I kind of felt like it was a little too much to believe.  But all in all, I couldn't let it take my love for this story away.

This series is compellingly told in Audio format
Into the Black Nowhere: An UNSUB Novel - Meg Gardiner,Hillary Huber

 

๏ ๏ ๏  Book Blurb ๏ ๏ ๏ 

 
Inspired by real-life serial killer Ted Bundy, an exhilarating thriller in which FBI profiler Caitlin Hendrix faces off against a charming, merciless serial killer
 
In southern Texas, on Saturday nights, women are disappearing. One vanishes from a movie theater. Another is ripped from her car at a stoplight. Another vanishes from her home while checking on her baby. Rookie FBI agent Caitlin Hendrix, newly assigned to the FBI's elite Behavioral Analysis Unit, fears that a serial killer is roaming the dark roads outside Austin.
 
Caitlin and the FBI's serial crime unit discover the first victim's body in the woods. She's laid out in a bloodstained, white baby-doll nightgown. A second victim in a white nightie lies deeper in the forest's darkness. Both bodies are surrounded by Polaroid photos, stuck in the earth like headstones. Each photo pictures a woman in a white negligee, wrists slashed, suicide-style--posed like Snow White awaiting her prince's kiss. 
 
To track the UNSUB, Caitlin must get inside his mind. How is he selecting these women? Working with a legendary FBI profiler, Caitlin searches for a homology--that elusive point where character and action come together. She profiles a confident, meticulous killer who convinces his victims to lower their guard until he can overpower and take them in plain sight. He then reduces them to objects in a twisted fantasy--dolls for him to possess, control, and ultimately destroy. Caitlin's profile leads the FBI to focus on one man: a charismatic, successful professional who easily gains people's trust. But with only circumstantial evidence linking him to the murders, the police allow him to escape. As Saturday night approaches, Caitlin and the FBI enter a desperate game of cat and mouse, racing to capture the cunning predator before he claims more victims. 
 
 
 

๏ ๏ ๏  My Review ๏ ๏ ๏ 

 
 
If I rated for the intensity of the last third of the book, this would be an easy 5 Stars...but I deducted a little for not only the somewhat meandering pace at the beginning of the book but also for the awkward sections of the story where they delved into Caitlin's personal life...they didn't feel relatable to me.  Although, in the first book it worked just fine for me, maybe, it's due to the different locale???  
 
I love a good profiling case, I find it very intriguing.  I didn't know or remember any of the details of Ted Bundy's actual case, so I went into this basically blind.  I did, however, google it after I finished the book, and I can say there are similarities to that case, but lots of differences too.  Overall, I found the first book the best of the two, but I' m looking forward to the next book in the series.
