A Mind To Kill is an intense, dark, and gritty crime thriller. This engrossing novel is not for the fainthearted or the squeamish.
Rebecca Smith is a troubled and mentally tortured woman. She was only six when a pedophile had abused her. And, now, seventeen years later, Rebecca is obsessed with the idea of ridding the world of as many child molesters as possible. Rebecca has no time for relationships, not even with her parents. Luring and trapping sexual predators has become her passion and her sole purpose in life.
Rebecca works with the West Wales Police Force as their computer expert. DI Gareth Gravel didn’t realize that the twenty-three-year-old woman working in the IT department was the same girl he had failed; the same girl who blamed him for not bringing her abuser to justice. Rebecca felt strongly that the police had not been working hard enough to capture and prosecute these sexual-deviant, predators. So, Rebecca had decided to do their work for them, one scum-ball at a time. Only, Rebecca’s methods were not the police force’s way of doing things; not even close.
A Mind To Kill is a fast-paced and gripping police procedural. The author is a former police officer and child protection social worker. As emotionally difficult this book was to read, I can’t imagine how horrific it was, to actually deal with these predators.
Thank you, John Nicoll, for my complimentary copy of A Mind To Kill.
