Another book review is up on the blog today with this fabulous true crime book by Minnesota author Frank F. Weber. I have read and reviewed a couple of his other books before and you can read those blog posts here and here.
Author Frank F. Weber is known for his wonderful true crime books which are normally based on actual true crimes. The latest offering is amazingly detailed and his background in forensic psychology definitely shines through. I think that is why I love his writing so much. He actually knows what he is writing about.
My review is as follows:
Frank F. Weber has done it again and written another true crime mystery that knocks it out of the park. Whew. I haven’t read an intense book like this in quite awhile and was happy to be able to read this latest offering from the talented Mr. Weber.
The author is a forensic psychologist who specializes in homicide, sexual assault and domestic abuse cases and he uses his amazing knowledge and skill to craft books that pull the reader in. His expertise in his field is quite evident in his writing and he is able to write a story that is authentic and entertaining.
The book has been described in many ways and one quote said it was a “grim thriller”. Yes, that is true but it is a thriller that is so involved and complex that at times I had to stop and take a beat to take it all in.
Based on a true story in Minnesota, the author takes the reader on a journey with surviver Maddie Dehler. As the story unfolds so do the assaults and cold cases become even colder with no end in sight. BCA Investigator, Jon Frederick, gets involved in the cases and is tasked with finding a common thread in cases that seem to be unrelated. As Jon gets more involved in the cases, he fights his way through and in the end is able to solve the case.
I really liked this book but it was intense at times and was definitely not an easy subject to read. But then, crime is crime and pretty horrific. Special thanks to the author, publisher and publicist for a free copy of this book for my honest review.
