First thought when finished: The Last Victim had a really good thriller aspect to the story but I could have done without the strange love “triangle”.

Won from Library Thing Overall Rating 4.00 Story Rating 4.50 Character Rating 3.50 First Thought when Finished: Silent Slaughter was a creepy cat and mouse game that didn’t go exactly how I expected. What I Thought of the Story: Silent Slaughter was an excellent read that kept me involved from beginning to end. Even though this is 4th book in the series (I think), this is the first one that I have read. I didn’t feel lost at all. I could tell that there is an overall arc storyline involving Campbell’s sister and some of his relationships. However, the main storyline flowed effortlessly and the other storyline was easy enough to pick up. The cat and mouse between Campbell and the UNSUB was fun! I always enjoy a smart UNSUB though I wish we could have spent a little more time on that storyline and less on Campbell’s personal life (more on that in the character section). What I Thought of the Characters: Silent Slaughter is book four in the profiler Lee Campbell series. He is a pretty typical lead character: flawed, bad relationships, but super smart. I didn’t feel a great connection to him but characters are always secondary […]

Won from Library Thing Early Reviewers (Nov) Overall Rating 3.50 Story Rating 3.75 Character Rating 3.25 NOTE: This was a very quick read–I did it all in one setting. The pacing and storytelling were done excellently. What I Loved: Martha Russell was a strong leading lady with a lot of backbone. She knew what had to be done in order to help other people and was willing to do it. How her story played out and the ultimate ending were perfectly within her character’s characteristics. I was very impressed with that. What I Liked: While not as enduring as Martha, I felt that Theo Mirkwood was a dashing leading man. While I knew it would all work out in the end, it took awhile for me to warm up to him. Complaints: I would have liked a little more romance–especially towards the end. It seemed to wrap up a little too quickly
