The Chosen Ones by Carol Wyer–Review-4.5 stars #Bookouture #NetGalley

The Chosen Ones is a compelling, creepy and fast-paced police procedural crime-thriller. 

Murders are beginning to pile up in Colton, England, and DI Robyn Carter and her team have been working overtime to link clues together. There’s a serial killer on the loose, and Robyn’s superior is threatening to pull her off the case. She’s stepping on toes, irritating influential people, and they’re breathing down her boss’s neck. Why is her superior hampering her investigation? Could he be corrupt? 

The murders were all different; each one was as brutal as the one prior: a man hanging like a scarecrow, a screwdriver through the head, and a woman run over several times. Unfortunately, these were not the only deaths; there were more. Robyn knew that she was staring at the work of a cold, methodical serial killer. And if her boss were in any way involved with these killings, then she’d have to bring him down as well.

If you enjoy police procedurals, check-out The Chosen Ones. It’s a cleverly crafted thriller, with realistic characters, an intriguing plot, natural dialogue and lots of surprises. The only thing I didn’t care for was the mild cliff-hanger at the end. It only involves a minor subplot, but still, I like my readings to end with every loose thread tied up.

Thank you, Bookouture and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.

The Missing Girls by Carol Wyer

The Missing Girls 850:.jpg.jpg

Don’t Miss Carol Wyer’s New Exciting Crime Thriller, Coming 9/14/17!

The Missing Girls is the third compelling book, in Carol Wyer’s Detective Robyn Carter Crime Thriller Series.

The storage facility atmosphere became thick, with somber silence, when a trunk, expected to have hidden illegal drugs in it, contained instead, a decomposing body of a sixteen-year-old girl. The deceased, Carrie Smith, had been brutally murdered. When Amber Dalton, another teenage girl was found dead; DI Robyn Carter, was convinced, that it was the work of a serial killer. Her boss, however, didn’t agree with her and ordered Robyn to stay focused on her investigation of Carrie Smith’s murderer. He accused Robyn of wasting valuable resources. When a third girl was reported missing, Robyn was ready to put in for a transfer. But, her deceased fiancee’s daughter, Amelie, a girl whom she adored, kept her rooted to her current precinct. DI Robyn Carter became more focused than ever, though, when a fourth girl, one whom she was acquainted with, went missing. Robyn was determined to put the sick-serial-killer behind bars, before it was too late, for yet, another girl.

The Missing Girls is an engrossing, fast-paced novel. As difficult as it was to read about the victim’s experiences, the author’s sharp and vivid details kept me captivated and glued to my seat. This book is a gripping, police procedural crime thriller, crafted with many clever twists, that kept me guessing until the very end.

Thank you, Bookouture and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.

Secrets of the Dead by Carol Wyer

Secrets of the Dead.2.995:30

New Unputdownable Crime Thriller by Carol Wyer, Coming 5/30/17!

This is One Book that You’re Not Going to Want to Miss!

 

Secrets of the Dead is a Brilliantly crafted, perfectly paced crime thriller. I loved every page of this riveting novel.

DI Robyn Carter is exhausted, she hasn’t slept in days; neither has her team. There is a serial killer loose in Litchfield England, and the dead bodies are beginning to pile up. Because, of gang war killings in the area, DCI Mulholland can’t authorize more help for Robyn’s team. DI Tom Sherarer should be working with Robyn, but because she has bruised his ego, Tom is blocking Robyn’s progress instead of assisting her. But, DI Robyn Carter is not above breaking a few rules, and if thinking and working outside the box is what it takes to get the job done, then so be it.

Journalist, Amy Walters, named the serial killer, the Lichfield Leopard, and the residents of the town are petrified. Someone is feeding Amy information, but who? The killer always seems to be one step ahead of DI Carter, and the thought of more innocent lives being taken was making Robyn sick. The race to capture the scruffy, wild-eyed, crazed monster was on.

There isn’t a dull page in this book. It’s captivating and unputdownable. The tension, twists and turns, kept me flipping the pages. This is the first book that I have read by this talented author, but it won’t be my last. I love finding new favorite authors, and Carol Wyer is now one of them. I’ll eagerly await for her next book to be published. Don’t miss discovering this author for yourself. Secrets of the Dead gets 5-shining stars from me.

Thank you, Bookouture and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy. I loved it!
