So, today as you can tell it’s my stop on the blog tour for Slow Drip by Gary Polisano. This is his first book in a new series and I had a lot of fun reading this.
Let’s get started…
When a beautiful and highly intuitive small town police detective is presented with a third related murder, she tries to follow conventional police procedure, while the teenage boy who discovered the body possess clues of his own that may lead directly to the killer, a mysterious figure with seemingly advanced medical knowledge who like to torture his victims in a particular sick manner.
Clues and taunts left by the killer along with the knowledge held by the teenager, cause the three characters to intersect in a dangerous game of cat and mouse.
I really enjoyed reading this as it’s such an original case of murders, I flew through it! I loved the narrative from our killer, seeing what was going on his head, how he prepared for the kills and how he chose his next victim.
I’m going to try and be pretty vague through this next point as I don’t want to give any spoilers, but I really enjoyed that not all of his kills go according to his meticulous plan, one tiny decision from another character can completely blow everything up. This really added to the thrill of this book!
I really wanted to give this book more than 4 stars, however (this is not the books fault) I was unaware that there was a ‘paranormal overtone’ and as you probably know that’s just not my jam. I’m not going to go into too much detail here because we all know that thrillers are best enjoyed when you don’t know too much about them. I was expecting and wanting to be taken on the investigation, finding clues that lead us to the killer and I personally think that this element took away from that. Like I said that is just my preference, overall I really enjoyed this book.
