Description

“Someone is murdering female science students at an esteemed university. Against a backdrop of psychological intrigue and creepy healthcare settings, Kenneth Sorin, a young chemistry doctor and medical research associate turned suspense author, starts his own murder investigation with the help of his cat and his new mysterious girlfriend.

The killer removes an eye from each corpse and places emerald crystals into the empty eye sockets. Dr. Sorin–a crystal chemistry and medicinal chemistry specialist–receives strange telephone calls: an old, dead woman phones the author from her grave, encouraging him to look inside himself for the truth. Has he lost his mind? Could he be the killer himself?”

    I won this book on a Goodreads giveaway, which is why this non-mystery reading girl read a mystery…something to remember as you read this review.

    One of my consistent frustrations with almost all of the giveaway books I’ve read to date is the abundance of typos. It completely baffles me why authors aren’t investing in a solid proofreader! In the Kindle version of this book, I was pulled out of the story literally hundreds of times by the lack of a space after commas and periods, and occasionally between two words.

    This is an easy read about a young author named Ken who is assisting his uncle, the lead investigator in a somewhat mysterious law enforcement agency, in his hunt to find a serial killer who is murdering young women in England. I think part of the reason I’m not a fan of mysteries is that I figure most of them out very early on, so I’m just waiting for the characters to do the same or the book to catch up with me. Unfortunately, that was the case for me with this story.

    The story jumped around a lot, and I found some of the jumps too disconnected from the main plot. Flat characters and major emotional gaps were another challenge. I don’t like to include spoilers, so I’ll just mention that the biggest gap was in Ken’s romantic relationship.

    If you’re a mystery lover who likes an intelligent mystery, you may very well enjoy this book. The main reasons I stuck with it to the end were Ken’s likability and the fascinating info on schizoid personality disorder, prime numbers and several other scientific topics.
