This author’s The Kind Worth Killing was fantastic. Like, super awesome, wish I had written it first fantastic, even though it lost the teeniest bit of steam in the end. In this one, the author mastered suspense and atmosphere. If felt like reading a Hitchcock movie. The characters felt vivid, the dialogue rang true, but at the same time, as good as certain aspects of the book was, it felt off. To be totally honest, it felt formula.
It lacked the raw, gritty, even the author didn’t see it coming until he wrote it surprise. In other words, it was predictable. Not quite boring, but it definitely lacked the organic thrills and suspense of the other. I will refrain from mentioning the other book written by this author because I hated it. One love, one hate, and one just the bright side of meh.) 3.75 stars.
