Peter hated him…
…and the murder was brutal.
Could he really be the killer?
Peter served his country in Afghanistan. The brain injury was severe. To survive in the hospital, he kept his focus on the one thing that mattered, Mary. What he found back home, broke him.
Mary was with Billy, the bully who terrorized his childhood.
When the police arrested him for Billy’s murder, they had just one problem…
…Peter claimed he couldn’t remember what he did that night.
Detective Luca’s career can’t afford another mistake. This case could be a problem, though, as the obvious suspect doesn’t remember a thing. Is Peter trying to pull a fast one?
Who else could have done it?
There’s more at play than meets the eye. Politics and personal demons plague him. Luca’s career and maybe his life are on the line.
You’ll love this riveting book one in the Luca Mystery police procedural series, because of the unexpected plot twists.
Get it now.
Am I The Killer? is the first book in the Luca Mystery Crime Series.
The story starts off here we meet Peter who, after fighting in Afghanistan, is set to return home when he suffers a brain injury. This results in him having a long spell in hospital as well as affecting his memory. It was good to see this side of things as we get to see his and his brother Vinnie’s relationship and start to feel a connection with them.
It sets the story up nicely getting to know Peter of which we arn’t sure whether he is a killer or whether he is a victim. This is where Frank Luca comes into it as he needs to solve the case. I didn’t envy him when the main suspect can’t remember but he has a good reason why he would want the victim dead.
Luca is a character that I liked. In fact I am looking forward to getting to know him better as I feel like we have only brushed the surface where he is concerned.
Am I The Killer? was an intriguing read and a nice start to a new series to me. It isn’t a fast paced read but has enough mystery and suspense to keep you hooked and turning those pages. Looking forward to more from the author.
My thanks to the author for a readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
Am I The Killer? is available to purchase from Amazon.
