Avid reader/reviewer and editor. I don't pull punches when I review, love it or hate it, you get what I think.
This second book in the Rebekka Franck series starts with what appears to be a stalking scene that turns deadly. I finished that part with a huge eye roll - taking it at face value, it seems rather implausible. In spite of that, I kept reading to see how it would be explained. As the body count rises, there seems to be a missing piece with each murder. I did figure out those missing pieces pretty quickly, including the identity of the killer; a fact that would usually have me struggling through the rest of the book. However, in this case, Rebekka's story held my interest in spite of a predictable outcome. There is a bit of a twist at the end that I didn't see coming, at least not completely. The story is chilling and be forewarned, the murders are gruesome and disturbing. In the end, the book did keep me turning pages and I'm interested enough in these characters to see where it goes from here.
