If You Like Your Heroine Tough and the Crime...,
This review is from: The Dead Room (Darby McCormick Book 3) (Kindle Edition)
... story awesome, twisted and thrilling - here is the right author for You: Chris Mooney.
His heroine Darby McCormick is an expert in CSI and trained as a SWAT.
Right from the beginning, this thriller rolls like a rollercoaster ride!
First there is to handle a hostage case - but without killing the perp who holds a helpless woman in his grip...
Then Darby is called to a gruesome crime scene in her hometown where a woman has been tortured and slaughtered brutally before the eyes of her 12-year old son.
And the son in the hospital is calling for Thomas McCormick - Darby's late father, killed in the line of duty by a schizofrenic apparently without any reason...
So Darby takes over and the boy starts to open up - until the events are speeded up by a FED agent, trying to get his hands on the poor shocked boy. Who does out of pure fear something unthinkable to himself...
Some pieces of evidence from the crime scene show the attackers apparently died twenty years ago. But how can dead mob killers return to haunt the present? The answers lie in the murky shadows of 'The Dead Room'.
But the forensic evidence is even more disturbing: someone watched the attack unfold from the woodland behind the house and interfered in the murder scene, saving the boy's life...
The deeper Darby digs, the more horrors come to light. In a house human bones are found - obviously young women murdered by a serial killer on an enormous scale, with a past that's even more shocking than his crimes.
And all those revelations point to some evil secrets that could rock Boston's law enforcement to its core. And an unknown avenger is crossing the paths with the killers, and the number of corpses rises.
Darby has a hard case to crack - an she does it with her usual wits and tricks.
A pure delight for every friend of a good thriller!
