Kurzbeschreibung

Journalist Brenda Banks is on the verge of the biggest story of her career—if she can stay alive long enough to finish it. A serial killer is targeting men in the small town of Slaughter Creek, leaving behind a twisted trail of clues meant only for Brenda. It’s a dangerous, deadly game, one she cannot master without the help of FBI Special Agent Nick Blackwood, the man she’s loved since high school—and whose tormented past could hold the key to catching a killer.

Nick Blackwood barely survived childhood at the hands of his father, a sadistic mastermind known as the Commander. Since he left town, he’s spent his life chasing criminals—and trying to forget the beauty he once loved. But when a murder investigation brings him face-to-face with Brenda Banks, Nick cannot ignore the smoldering fire she rekindles in his troubled soul. Allowing Brenda into his heart means letting down his guard—and that’s just what the killer is counting on…

3.0 von 5 Sternen A Sadistic Killer Stalks Slaughter Creek 30. Juni 2013
Von Nancy Famolari - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
In this sequel to Dying to Tell, Brenda Banks, an investigative reporter, tries to get an exclusive story on Commander Blackwood, a sadistic madman who tortured children in the insane asylum at Slaughter Creek. Blackwood is now in prison, but another killer, possibly one of the children he tortured, is strangling people in Slaughter Creek. Nick Blackwood, one of the Commander's sons, is now an FBI agent trying to clean up the mess his father created. He has loved Brenda Banks since high school and he doesn't want her involved with his father, but his plans to keep her out of the investigation are thwarted by the killer who leaves a trail of clues that only Brenda can understand.

If you like suspense, this novel has plenty as Nick Blackwood and Brenda Banks try to understand their childhoods and track down a sadistic killer. There were too many scenes of sadistic torture involving children for my taste, so I didn't enjoy this novel.

I found the main characters less interesting than the comparable characters in Dying to Tell. Sadie and Jake seemed much more real. They were focused on trying the help Amelia, Sadie's twin sister, one of the Commander's victims. In this novel, Nick and Brenda focus on their own pasts. I found it hard to get to know these characters, particularly with all the scenes of torture both remembered and current thrown in between glimpses of their interaction.

I can't recommend this book unless you like gritty, sadistic mysteries with a hint of romance, but if you want to follow the lives of the Slaughter Creek characters, you may enjoy this second installment.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Really?? 4. Oktober 2013
Von Brian P.Ludden - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I bought this book on my Kindle. OMG. I am sooo glad I did because I have two daughters that do not need to be scanning trough this kind of stuff. I was looking for a good murder mystery, but all the author talks about is sex & the different characters's sexual desires. Now don't get me wrong, a little sex in a book is OK, but this is crazy. I also like a book that is a little more "realistic" when it comes to how murders & crimes are handled. This book is not even close. But, the final straw was when one of the main character was dying on the O.R. table because her kidney was not working. Really?? What about the other kidney? We can live with just one. What about dialysis? People do it all the time. Her mother gives her one of hers and the character immediately comes back from the brink of death & the kidney starts working. Really?? This book reads like something an 8th grader would write.

1.0 von 5 Sternen I don't understand all the praise. 28. Juli 2013
Von JMK - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
The characters were flat, zero personality.
The knowledge of police procedure was laughable; who lets a reporter go traipsing around an unprocessed crime scene? A defense attorney would have a field day with that. And knots are cut, not untied.
The love story was clumsy and contrived. This was a "hook-up", not a romance.
And the suspense wasn't suspenseful.

1.0 von 5 Sternen The first Kindle book I ever sent back 20. Oktober 2013
Von S. Collingwood - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
It was so ugly in tone and obscene that it literally made me sick to my stomach. I'm not a sissy, but this book seemed to relish and wallow in the darkest and sickest of human desires and behaviors. There was no shred of good character or even not twisted psychology on display. YUCK!!

3.0 von 5 Sternen In desperate Need of Intervention 25. August 2013
Von Antigone Walsh - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
While an improvement over its predecessor, Dying to Tell, this book shares similar flaws. Focusing on FBI agent Nick Blackwood and buxom reporter Brenda Banks, the sequel picks up where the other left off. The Commander, the sadistic mastermind of military experimentation on the juvenile inmates of a mental hospital and father of Nick and his brother, Sheriff Jake, is in jail. It appears that some of the test subjects have turned homicidal and are pursuing their own twisted and bloody agenda. Brenda has a troubling connection to both the killer and the sanitarium where the experiments occurred. She also has a case of apparently unrequited love for the stoic Nick. Nick is actually fighting his attraction to Brenda while trying to keep her safe from harm. But circumstances and the killer have very different plans.

This is an okay read, hampered by poor writing and clumsy dialogue. The author has no grasp on the niceties of legal or police procedures. The murders are appropriately sordid and she does flesh out Brenda's character. The romance is slow and it is hard to fathom anyone holding on to a juvenile crush years after high school. The author does not demonstrate much insight into the behaviors of survivors of child abuse and she does the mentally ill no favors. They are all skin crawlingly creepy, which is really not fair. But then again the whole town is insular in a this is what would have happened if the Children of the Corn attained adulthood way. Not my favorite, but not the worst either.
