Review + Giveaway: Silent Slaughter by C.E. Lawrence

Publisher: Pinnacle Books
Release Date: August 7, 2012
Format: ARC
Source: publisher for an honest review

A note arrives for Detective Leonard Butts signed by the Professor. After consulting with profiler, Dr. Lee Campbell, they decide to wait and see what the obviously intelligent man does next. They don’t have to wait long before the first known victim is discovered with a missing finger and a note. Now the case pulls in Forensics Linguistics Specialist Elena Krieger and Jimmy Chen and his autistic brother Barry. Dealing with a sophisticated psycho is nothing new for this group but without Barry’s help that might not discover the pattern until it is too late.

The reader knows early on the identity of the serial killer (Edmund) and this leads to an increased creep factor for the reader with detailed descriptions of what goes on in his psychotic head. We also discovers how Edmund became the sick and twisted psycho he is today yet clearly highly intelligent and able to hold a high level job. With each new victim he leaves a new message directed at a different member of the group.

Another fast-paced, action-packed read from Lawrence. Not having to figure out who the killer is enables the reader to become invested in the characters and their lives and we are taken on the roller coaster investigation right along with them. I recommend this and any other novel by C.E. Lawrence; she doesn’t let the mystery/thriller lovers down.
