Someone is killing women in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan - but, who? The only clues: a signature heart carved into each victim's breast (inside, the initials "J.C." and those of the deceased); copies of the New Testament (with underlined passages referring to infidelity); and fingerprints of a juvenile arrested in the 1960s.
On the case is Matt Davis, a plodding but effective NYPD homicide detective who is addicted to fly fishing - and chocolate. Helping him is his one-quarter Mohawk Indian partner, Chris Freitag, to whom he owes a long-standing debt of gratitude. Complicating things is Rita Valdez, a female cop looking for "true love" and not too particular about where she finds it.
As the Twig is Bent is an explosive thriller that rips the lid off the sordid underbelly of Internet chat rooms, and propels the listener on a no-holds-barred journey toward its bone-chilling conclusion. CAUTION: Contains graphic sexual material that is inappropriate for some listeners.
Would you listen to As the Twig Is Bent again? Why?
Great storyline...a bit graphic at times. I also enjoyed the development of the individual characters.
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
I found it interesting that the author reveals the identity of the bad guy to the reader early in the book through the use of flashbacks then allows the suspense to build as the good guys put the pieces together.
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
I was not a huge fan of the narrator.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I enjoy reading fictional novels in a series. I think I've found my next project.
Any additional comments?
Patiently waiting for "Opening Day" to release in audio format.
