Dark book, well written, will he get away with it?

And I'm not talking about the serial murderer this book centers around...

How far would YOU go in seeking retribution?

The answer this book offers left me feeling unsettled...

Anything by Jilliane Hoffman is good. I think this is her best book. She not a well known author but this book, or any of her other two books will keep you on the edge of your seat. She's one author that I really keep an eye on for new releases.

C. J. Townsend is a brilliant state prosecutor known for keeping her cool even when trying the most horrific cases. The current murderer is as base as they come - a vicious killer who savors cruelty and considers murder an art form. Amid a maelstrom of media coverage, C. J. builds her case until she is struck with a shattering blow from her past. Now, everything rides on her ability to hold herself together long enough to put the criminal behind bars forever.

I enjoyed this story even though it was a little farfetched toward the end. I give it an A!

Although I normally don't read thrillers or court room dramas, when I started reading this book at a friends house I could not put it down. This was a page turner indeed that will have you gripped from the very first page.
