If you play games with a killer… you can’t afford to lose.
Looking for a subject for her book about evil, Lydia Tune travels to the infamous Mortem Asylum in seedy Decanten City. Her target is Jason Devere, a death row serial killer notorious for his precise and grotesque murders.
Lydia is beautiful, ruthless and manipulative – she always gets what she wants. She knows the only way to get Jason to speak is to engage him in a dangerous battle of wits. Local detective and old friend Alex Gilbey warns her off the case, but he has no idea just how far Lydia will go to court darkness.
The more Lydia digs into Jason’s story, the clearer it becomes that there is a bigger story to uncover. But the problem with playing with killers is that they never play nice…
Well this one I read for my #2021newreleaseschallenge
It was interesting yes, but when I know who the killer is very early on without anyone actually having to say it, well let’s say that was a little harsh for me since I was really expecting it to surprise me.
So Let’s talk a little about the characters, Jason was definitely a favorite he had so much swag in him, love him as soon as he entered the picture, crazy or not this man was onto something.
Lydia wasn’t that bad just a little predictable almost all the time for me, they were moments she did surprise me don’t get me wrong but maybe I would have make her a little more independent by the end maybe.
In all the plot was as I say before a bittersweet for me, because the book is 44 chapters long and on chapter 14 I already knew what was the end or the bigger part of the end. so that for me made think if maybe I have problems seriously I mean how did I actually knew almost all the plot before reading it, should be more psycho than I thought.
The other part of the ending didn’t arouse too much in me really, more like an afterthought only.
The balance between the little romance like between the characters wasn’t half bad was almost comical but it gave a nice undertone to the mix.
Not a bad book if you love the crime thrillers.
