They Never Die Quietly + Giveaway



They Never Die Quietly tells the story of homicide Detective Sami Rizzo, who is assigned to head a task force investigating serial killings in San Diego. Simon, the highly intelligent, cunning, and deceptively charming villain, redefines the depths of human evil. He believes God has given him absolute authority to purify his unholy victims through a ritual that ends in a grisly crucifixion. Driven by warped religious beliefs and guided by his dead mother, very much alive in his subconscious, Simon abducts “chosen ones” and holds them captive in a Room of Redemption. There, the victims helplessly await their crucifixion. Detective Rizzo urgently yearns to solve the case and gain the respect of her male colleagues, but her obsession to apprehend the killer on her own clouds her thinking. When Simon outsmarts Rizzo and captures her, determined to make her his next victim, she must employ all her resources—both physical and intellectual—to outwit the villain at his own game.

My Review

I am a fan of this series. However I have read this series our of order. I started with book two and recently finished book three and then jumped back to book one. Only this is the first book I have not read but listened to in audio version. Which I have to say that I found that the narrator, Christina Traister did a good job of narrating this book on audio version. Yet despite Ms. Traister's work I had a hard time really getting into this book as much as I have the other two novels. At first I was into the story but than I started to lose focus on the story and would occasionally get pulled back in.

Sami does show a little of how she can hold her own in a man's world. Yet she has really grown into a powerful force as the series as progressed. Also, there is some strong language used in this book so be warned if you do not like this type of language. Although this book is not my favorite I still am a fan of this author's work and will read more books in this series.
