LoveReading Expert Review of Evil at Heart

 

April 2010 Book of the Month.

 

The third in a series featuring a serial killer, Gretchen Lowell, who has acquired quite a cult following.  These are gruesome, sick and totally addictive – wide open for a fourth but I do feel that should be the last for Gretchen.  It is time she was caught and the series detectives had something else to get their teeth into, for they are good, rounded characters, ready to step forward.  But don’t get me wrong, this is still terrific stuff.


Comparison: Tess Gerritsen, Karen Rose, Richard Montanari.

Evil at Heart Synopsis

Since serial killer Gretchen Lowell went on the run, following Detective Archie Sheridan's latest near-fatal encounter with her, the city of Portland has descended into Beauty Killer hysteria. Even fan sites have sprung up online, where admirers of Gretchen can congregate to discuss their heroine. When a spleen is discovered at a local rest stop, Detective Henry Sobol is at first sceptical it is Gretchen's work. It is only when he sees the rest stop's wall -covered in hundreds of tiny red hearts that Henry realises its time to contact Archie . . . Archie Sheridan has spent the last few month's in the city's psychiatric hospital, battling with his addiction to painkillers and his strange obsession with the woman who tortured him. But soon he, along with the Beauty Killer taskforce and journalist Susan Ward, find themselves investigating a new spate of killings -when bodies start to turn up at local beauty spots, their eye-balls removed. Could this be the work of a copy-cat? Or has Gretchen really returned? One thing is certain, whoever is behind these brutal murders, they will do whatever it takes to get to Archie . . .
