Really gripping read!,
This review is from: Eeny Meeny: DI Helen Grace 1 (Paperback)
This is a book for all the fans of Jeffery Deaver. It has a mystery, suspense and... a truly sick serial killer!
I wasn't really sure if I wanted to read this book. The blurb promised the content reminding me of the movie "Saw", which I did watch, but with misgivings - this is just not my genre. But I decided to give "Eeny Meeny" a chance. And true enough, at the very beginning we have the abduction of a couple, who are imprisoned and given a horrible choice - to kill or to be killed. Seemed cruel and graphic, but I wanted to find out who was doing that. And when more victims disappear and are faced with the same choice, I was hooked and just wanted to find the killer.
Throughout the book we can find small clues to the mysterious identity of our perpetrator. They are cleverly hidden and never given straight out. They are hinted at and suggested, so nothing is easy. I picked up some notions about 3/4 through the book. And only guessed the identity of the killer towards the very end - at least before it was revealed by the author :0) The book is written well and avoids predictability, which makes it a good story in my opinion.
I received this book for a review courtesy of Lovereading. Thanks.
