About the Book:
Psychiatrist Dr. Gwen Moore is an expert on killers. She’s spent a decade treating California’s most depraved predators and unlocking their motives—predators much like the notorious Bloody Heart serial killer, whose latest teenage victim escaped and then identified local high school teacher Randall Thompson as his captor. The case against Thompson as the Bloody Heart Killer is damning—and closed, as far as Gwen and the media are concerned. If not for one new development…Defense attorney Robert Kavin is a still-traumatized father whose own son fell prey to the BH Killer. Convinced of Thompson’s innocence, he steps in to represent him. Now Robert wants Gwen to interview the accused, create a psych profile of the killer and his victims, and help clear his client’s name. As Gwen and Robert grow closer and she dives deeper into the investigation, grave questions arise. So does Gwen’s suspicion that Robert is hiding something—and that he might not be the only one with a secret.

My Review:
I loved Every Last Secret by A.R. Torre but this one had a slow start for me, then as I continued reading it really piqued my interest. I even laughed out loud at the banter between Gwen and her friend Meredith despite the dark subject matter. A lot of the storyline wasn't plauseable but the unique plot allowed me to look past it. I didn't enjoy the ending very much, just a little too perfect for my liking and I had figured everything out pretty much from the start. Don't take my word for it though as a lot of people LOVED this book and it has a 4.38 rating at the time of this review, it just wasn't for me.

Thank you NetGalley, A.R. Torre and Thomas & Mercer for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
