Dead Mercy by Noelle Holten @nholten40 @0neMoreChapter_ @BOTBSPublicity

Book Description

A brutal murder…

When a burned body is found with its teeth missing, DC Maggie Jamieson discovers that the victim may be the husband of one of her probation colleagues.

A dark history…

As the body count rises, the team becomes increasingly baffled by how the victims could possibly be connected until a clue leads them to a historical case that was never prosecuted.

A terrible secret…

In order to catch the killer, Maggie must piece together what happened all those years ago before it’s too late.

My Thoughts:

The storyline in Dead Mercy had me go on an emotional roller coaster of a ride. Do you know how sometimes even though you are totally against violence and killing, you still find yourself having empathy for the killer? Well this was very much the case here. The further into the story we go, the more understanding of why the killer was doing what they were and it does make for some heart wrenching reading.

The murders themselves were both chilling and horrifying. I kept putting myself into the victims shoes at what was happening to them and it was a terrifying place to be and definitely something that could easily give you nightmares! Maggie and her team are working around the clock to solve the case and as they close in, it send my heart racing!

Dead Mercy was bone chillingly brilliant! I had to take some deep breaths when I had finished it as I had been holding my breath for so long at events that happened towards the end. Whilst the murders freaked me out, it was also quite a harrowing and emotional read. I’m desperate for more in the series not only to see what other cases the team will be working on but for where things will go in Maggie’s personal life also. Roll on book 6!
