There are some pretty graphic torture scenes which some readers may not feel comfortable with, and since these appear to have been very well researched are not for the squeamish. The serial killer in the book feels every bit as real as Tyler, and the author did an interesting job in making parts of the character pretty sympathetic; anybody who has ever felt victimised by big business or the rich and powerful can understand the rage the killer starts building. Even better, there is no sense of ultimate justification for the killer - he does what he does because he enjoys it.
There are patches in the book that feel a bit rough, especially around police procedure, but the book on the whole is a promising introduction to the writer and some characters I'd like to meet again.
I'm pleased to say this although very different in storyline is just as good and educational too . Love the characters and it dies show how hard it can be to get the police to listen to you ! Highly recommend this book !!
I found "The Scavenger's Daughter" to be one of those books I didn't want to put down. It was fast-paced and never apparent what was coming next. At times, it seemed everyone was working against Tyler, which brought out my natural instinct to root for the underdog. A secondary story thread, offering the possibility for Tyler to redeem a past mistake by rekindling a romance, also helps make Tyler a sympathetic character and ties in well with the main story line. Thrillers don't get much more intense than this.
**Originally written for "Books and Pals" book blog. May have received a free review copy. **
But someone is using Medieval torture implements to kill people and the police don't have a clue. Tyler West does, but the police won't believe him. The killer wants publicity and a worthy opponent and he quickly realizes Tyler West can provide both. The suspense starts right in the beginning and rarely lets up until the final page. This book was hard to put down.
The author alternated between first person point of view from Tyler West's viewpoint and third person viewpoint from other characters. The viewpoint switches were skillfully handled and not a distraction and the book was well-plotted.
Warning: The well-researched descriptions of the torture implements and how they were used are not for the squeamish. Readers will be glad they live in more enlightened times.
A great read. If you love well-written thrillers, this book is for you.
