My Thoughts: I have loved Patrick Freivald's YA urban fantasy series Twice Shy, so was very excited he was releasing an adult book, and in one of my favorite genres: thriller.
This is a very strange book. I'm honestly not quite sure what to think of it. Of course it is very well written—this is Patrick Freivald after all—and the character development is very good. The twists and turns just keep coming, and there is just no telling who is going to do what at any given time. The writing, then, is very good. I'm just not sure what to make of the plot device regarding who is behind the murders. But I can't really go into that here, as that would be spoilers.
Anyway, the fact is this is a good, solid thriller, and fans of thrillers, mysteries, and suspense novels should find it an enjoyable read, so check it out.
Disclosure: I received a copy of this e-book from Journalstone via LibraryThing's Early Reviewer program in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
Synopsis: Paul Renner has toyed with the FBI since his first kill.
When an anonymous contract threatens his father’s life, his search for answers hits a dead end. Desperate to save his dad, he cuts a deal with Special Agent Gene Palomini.
With each new development, the FBI needs Paul less, and their agreement begins to unravel. As they fall into a world of inhuman violence and macabre medicine, each side knows that betrayal is only a matter of time.
