Review of They Never Die Quietly (Book one) - HERE
Two years ago, Detective Sami Rizzo narrowly escaped a brush with death at the hands of a serial killer. After apprehending the killer and bringing him to justice, this life-changing event compels her to resign from the police force. In her heart of hearts, however, she struggles with the decision. But a second serial killer—a well- respected doctor gone astray—uses his charm to seduce his victims and then performs horrific surgical experiments on them. In a final act of depravity, he scatters their mutilated bodies throughout San Diego County. Feeling a sense of duty and obligation, Sami Rizzo appeals to the police chief and mayor, and they reinstate her as a homicide investigator. As the body count grows and the killer’s experiments become more and more brutal, Sami follows one dead-end lead after another, while trying to deal with a sickly mother and a turbulent relationship with her lover. But then the killer makes a crucial mistake: one of his victims survives. Sami does everything to protect the barely alive victim, but the killer has a different plan.
Resuscitation is the second of three books I am reviewing by this author featuring San Diego homicide detective Sami Rizzo. Each of the three offer truly creepy serial killers who off their victims in unique ways and are driven by strong personal motives. As a psychological thriller, this book is just over the line, enough to get your heart pounding but still let you fall asleep at night.
Two years have passed since Sami almost met her end at the hands of a serial killer. She has walked away from the police force - something her dad asked her to pursue on his death bed - and headed back to school to study Social Work. She was now married to her former partner, Al Diaz. When the police discover a mutilated body, Sammi is torn. It's time to admit she isn't enjoying her studies and missed being a detective. With the support of the police chief and mayor, she heads back into the office and onto the trail of a new serial killer. Diaz has been called away on a family emergency, so his character has only a minor role this time around.
