I always enjoying picking up a copy of a book by Nancy Mehl. I can always count on reading a plot that stays true from start to finish, fully developed characters and suspense that would put any suspense writer to shame. Once again, I wasn’t let down. Nancy seems to tie everything together in a beautiful bow, not with characters that are flawless, but with characters and stories that are flawed just like me. Maybe that’s what makes me enjoy her books because I can identify with so many of her characters.
Is this a "Guys Book"? Serial Killer – Check! Danger around every corner – Check! Suspenseful plot that keeps you from wanting to put the book down – Check!. Definitely a book that any guy would want to get his hands on!
