A Killer's Tears


Loved it! 😍

A fast-paced, page-turner with heart. This murder mystery, and hunt for truth, will keep you on the edge of your seat! A sure fire winner.

What price is too much to pay? A mother's silence means her daughter breaths to see another day, laying down her life for the one she loves; however, the daughter's future still hangs in the balance. Is remaining silent the right course to take when her daughter's life is at stake?

A breath-taking read at near break-neck speeds. Love, loss, and stalwart grief create a book of depth and characters you will be rooting for!

Four out of five stars due to some bobbles in regard to typos and a main character's relationship that was incredibly frustrating. The relationship includes a break-up that was not plausible on a timeline that sees it quickly come to an end despite the years invested. Additionally, there were some omissions such as the selection of a jury that was mentioned but then never featured, and the time/death of one of the main characters that was far too predictable.

I would have liked to have read more about the daughter's conditions while being held captive and a deeper dive into the daughter's tears outside of separation from her mom. Kid's are resilient, and although certainly wanting to be reunited with her mother, why was she constantly crying/crying out for her? Was she kept in complete isolation or were her surroundings comfortable? Did the daughter's life follow any type of routine/schedule or did her days just drag endlessly from one into the next? There were a bit too many unknowns that would have been nice to see filled in and rounded out.

Despite the above, I was able to give "A Killer's Tears" four out of five stars because, flaws and all, it's nothing short of intriguing!

The author delivers poignant scenes, sentences worth quoting, and a cast of characters that although large never feels like too much. There are definite moments of brilliance the author should be proud of! I can confidently recommend "A Killer's Tears" to anyone that enjoys murder mysteries, legal thrillers, or a quick who done it akin to books written by James Patterson.

Reading books and writing reviews brings with it every emotion under the sun; forever changing, forever changed, and I wouldn't have it any other way. May my words not only help fellow readers but also the authors of the books we read.
