I was lucky enough to receive a complimentary advanced digital copy of this book in exchange for an honest review on NetGallery.com
I love me a serial killer. Seriously, give me a murder/suspense book with a lot of technical, forensic evidence and I am in hog heaven. In high school, I wrote two different reports on Helter Skelter for 2 different classes and I was a Criminal Justice major in college. I live for this stuff.
Black-Eyed Susans was a terrific read. The story was a constant shift from past to present and while it took a little time for the pieces to come together, the last quarter of the novel moved at such a fast pace, I could not put it down.
What I loved: So technical, so accurate. I love the advances in the world of forensic DNA.
What I didn’t love: There was very little about Tessa’s family - I would have loved a little more background on her brother and father both after her rescue and in the present day.
What I learned: Can’t say without giving away any spoilers…
