A Born Victim by R.P. Rochford
Women are being found mysteriously tortured and killed. Will Detective Lucy Taylor be able to stop the violent crime spree against women? I gotta find out. This novel caught me by surprise and was an unexpected gem that you’ll only find when giving independent authors a chance. Incredibly well crafted with deep character development and a dark and intense plot that didn’t disappoint. I was so sucked in by the first chapter that I couldn’t put it down. I started reading ‘A Born Victim’ while on a three-mile walk with my family. They of course left me behind because I wasn’t keeping up. The first scene where ‘Gill Brogan’ has a disturbing discussion with her abusive boss ‘Jacob Spencer’ was mesmerizing. Is he trustworthy? Was something sinister going on? It felt that way and I had to find out. This is a remarkable detective novel with plenty of nasty moments and a plot that take you all the way down to the riveting end. I thoroughly enjoy the brutal courtroom drama and the breathtaking conclusion. Michael Connelly fans will love this detective novel. I did.
Mesmerizing and Sinister
