Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Andrew E. Kaufman is a freelance writer and author living in Southern California, along with his Labrador Retrievers, a horse, and a very bossy Jack Russell Terrier (who, incidentally, thinks she owns the place). His new novel, While the Savage Sleeps, a forensic paranormal mystery, takes place in the fictional town of Faith, New Mexico. It is currently available on Kindle, where it has remained in the top ten of Amazon's Bestseller's List.After receiving his journalism and political science degrees at San Diego State University, Andrew began his writing career as an Emmy-nominated writer/producer, working at KFMB-TV, the CBS affiliate in San Diego, then at KCAL-TV in Los Angeles. For more than ten years, he produced special series and covered many nationally known cases, including the O.J. Simpson Trial. He also has written stories for the Chicken Soup for the Soul books, the most recent of which is due out later this year.

There were entire paragraphs with detailed descriptions of her visions and I started skipping those entire chapters and skim reading the rest to get to the end.
Pity really, the author does have a flair with words but seems to have not been sure how to progress the tale, or has become distracted and went off on a tangent with the psychic angle.
Unfortunately the rationale for the multiple murders stretches credibility and the author seems to realize this and quickly wraps it up with a sudden ending.
This book deserves more than ** based on the writing, but the silly plot destroys the potential.
Author: Andrew E. Kaufman
Narrator: Luke Daniels
Kaufman wastes no time in beginning the murderous events, which will continue to unfold in the town of Faith, NM. There is something awry in this, usually, violence free town. Some are aware of the unusual circumstances, unfolding in this close-knit community; however, the typical naysayers, present in every novel, are unconvinced.
Kaufman gives the novel a great non-stop movement, filled with suspense, mystery, violence, and "horror," Additionally, a perceivable "supernatural" undertone, seems to be at work. This "supernatural" or "precognitive" plot, brings Assistant Sheriff Cameron Dawson (Faith, NM) and Dr. Kyle Bancroft (Albuquerque, NM) together, to solve the strange circumstance in Faith, NM.
While the Savage Sleeps, is a suspenseful and forward driven novel. Kaufman does an excellent job at keeping the reader interested and entertained. With so many killings, suddenly occurring, in such a small town; it appears, to be the work of a sadistic serial killer. However, despite the similarities in the killings; the evidence points to more than one killer. Is there really a supernatural force at work, supported by the visions of Dr. Kyle Bancroft, or something else, equally disturbing? What is causing this once quiet town, Faith, NM, to be the location of multiple homicides; vicious crimes, carried out by mild-mannered citizens? The more confident you become in your own mystery solving; the more you will doubt yourself.
The novel is a guessing game...Kaufman is great at keeping readers interested, and has an imaginative writing technique. While he does through in some forensics, police procedure, interview techniques, etc... The reader is able to dismiss incorrect technical issues and procedural errors, due to the inexperience / relaxed environment of a small town Sheriff's department.
The main premise of the novel and eventual conclusion, is interesting enough, without the added distraction of Dr. Bancroft. She is really the "achilles's heel" of the novel. Her strange psychic powers and annoying self-doubt, caused me to dislike her character and my overall enjoyment of the book. Obviously, Kaufman had his own vision when writing the novel, and felt that she served an important role.
I give "While the Savage Sleeps" four stars and recommend it to anyone interested in suspense thrillers over police procedural or hard-boiled crime novels. With a less convoluted plot (sans Dr. Bancroft), I believe this novel would be a 5-star read!
If you enjoy suspense thrillers like: "Abandoned," "Pines," and "Run" by author Blake Crouch - I think this novel is for you!
If you are more of a Brett Battles, Michael Prescott, or Lee Child fan, you may want to pass on this one.
I hope my review was fair and helpful. Thanks! Michael.
