This book was great. I was hooked from page one. It is a very fast paced read. I am an Erica Spindler fan, and I have to say I think this is her best book yet. The plot of this story is great. I know that little children are involved, so that makes it a little disturbing, but it is written with taste. She is not graphic about the killings. I would recommend this book to mystery lovers, it is definately a worth while read.
This is the first novel I've read by this author and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. It's a chilling story and every single time I thought I had it figured out, there was a twist! I love mysteries that keep you guessing until the very end.
Can Kitt catch the sleeping angel killer this time around? The killer is back after 5 years and is mocking the police. This book will keep you on the edge of your seat guessing who it is. I would recommend this book to my friends. It kept my interest.
The Sleeping Angel Killer provides the chilling focus to Spindler's 12th bloodcurdling romantic thriller (after Killer Takes All). Kitt Lundgren and Mary Catherine "M.C." Riggio of the Rockford, Ill., VCB (Violent Crimes Bureau) vow to catch a serial killer who sets the suffocated bodies of 10-year-old girls in their own beds, dressed like angels in frilly white nightgowns, hair spread out on their pillows and pink lip gloss applied postmortem to their mouths. Spindler's setting of a "meat-and-potatoes" Midwest town provides a fresh background for two believable and very cool investigators. Kitt, a recovering middle-aged alcoholic, tried and failed to catch the murderer five years earlier, during a 2001 killing spree, while her own child was dying of leukemia and her marriage was falling apart under the strain. Now, when eerily similar crimes recur, someone calls Kitt, identifying himself as the original killer and the new perp as just a copycat. M.C., an ambitious, distrustful newbie, is assigned to help Kitt with the investigation. The detectives must overcome their personal problems in order to catch the monsters, a task culminating in a breathless finale.
Another brilliantly written masterpiece of intrigue, murder, and deception by Spindler. The SAK (Sleeping Angel Killer), who specializes in the murders of blonde blue eyed 10 year old little girls in their beds in their homes, is back at work after a 5 year hiatus.... Or is it a Copycat? That is what the "real" SAK is telling the newly returned lead detective on the case.... the last bout with this murderer sent her into alcoholism and cost her her job and marriage... Will it cost her life this time?
