2.7 Llamas


This book was sent to me by Baker Book House and wow was it intense!!!!! I don’t know why I thought a serial killer book wasn’t going to be intense but it was still good.

This book is about an FBI agent who is trying to catch a serial killer who seems to be obsessed with taking out the unworthy. She has to team up with an serial killers son to figure out who the killer is planning to kill off next…

Ok so this book is REALLY intense… I mean there is a lot of dead people in it… The killer cuts off peoples tongues, rips off their finger nails and likes to keep them in a hole sooo…. This was a bit intense for me and might not be a book I suggest. There was just a LOT of violence… And I just didn’t really like it that much.

The plot line was very good in the book. There was a nice romance. Sweet family and such, but the violence was just a bit much for me… It felt like there wasn’t that much joy, just mostly death…

Over all, this book got 2.7 Llama’s just because it was too much…. It is clean and good for adults. But I don’t think I will reading it again soon… Adios! -The Young Llama Reader.


  • A very thrilling book!
  • Action packed!!!


  • Lots of violence…
  • NOT kid-friendly…

FBI Special Agent Grace Billingsley tracks serial killers, using her skills as a psychiatrist and behavioral analyst to get dangerous people off the street and safely behind bars. But prison psychiatrist Sam Monroe knows that just because a killer is incarcerated doesn’t mean they’re not a threat. His own father, Peter, is a serial killer–in prison but certainly not out of Sam’s life, as much as he wishes he was.

When bodies start showing up with Peter’s MO, Sam and Grace are both called in to consult. They’ve met before–and though Grace thought they’d made a real connection, Sam ghosted her. They’ll have to get past the awkwardness and mistrust to solve this case–especially because it’s about to get personal.

USA Today bestselling author Lynette Eason doesn’t give you time to catch your breath in this breakneck race to stop a serial killer.
