In for the Kill

A madman is stalking women in the city. By the time his victims are found, they've been dismembered with careful precision, their limbs stacked into a gruesome pyramid and completely cleansed of every last drop of blood. Accustomed to working on the most grisly homicides, detective Frank Quinn's nerves don't rattle easily. But when the last names of the killer's victims spell out "Q-u-i-n-n", the veteran cop feels a chill run down his spine.

    "In for the Kill"

    I don't know if it was me or what, but I still can't name all of the characters of this book. I listened to the first part at least 4 times. When I listened to the last part I would just shake my head and say where did that person come from? I don't remember him. I can't wait to read other reviews and see what others thought. I did not like it.

    "Irritating"

    This is supposed to be a police procedural. However, the author seems to know nothing about police procedure--either that or he decided to leave it out of this book. You are led to believe that the protagonist is a super sleuth, but he spends most of the book just sitting around waiting to get lucky. I listened to the whole thing, but I was mostly hoping that it would simply end.

    "Wasn't Impressed"

    The plot and characters were a good read, but the narrator was rediculously dramatic. He should go back to the basics or quit, in my opinion he destroyed this book. The ending didn't please me, but I can't complain without giving it away.

    "In for the Kill"

    I don't care for the melodic method of the reader. It becomes irritating to listen to after awhile. The story line is not as captivating as other books I've listened. Seems drawn out too much.
