Our Review of A Killer’s Heart
I loved the book. No questions about it because there was a strong central character and a stronger plot line to run with. But I couldn’t help but wonder whether the whole “heart” thing had an actual purpose to the base plot. If you have noticed in the book synopsis, what the book focuses more is on the fact that our central character has a killer’s heart. Like the literal heart of a killer. I couldn’t help but expect that this factor would come into play somewhere in the book. But unfortunately, it didn’t. Or if it did, it does so in a very vague or inconspicuous manner. That was the only thing I had to complain about the book because the rest of it was good
The plot is at its best with things pulling and pushing at the right instances keeping the intrigue intact in the book. The clues and events are easy to follow and the pretty realistic and practical aspect of the sleuthing process makes it very easily consumable and enjoyable. As I said leaving apart the fact that I thought that the whole heart angle was meant to be more than what it was, the rest of everything in the book played well to tell an exciting story.
In conclusion, I would say that if you want a good old FBI crime investigation read, then you can rely on this book. It has a good plot, a nice pace and characters that are easy to comprehend and resonate with. There is enough fodder to feed both your mind and brain in the book. So yeah overall a good old nice thriller with a female investigator with “Killer’s Heart” in the lead.
