Today I am reviewing Creatures of Appetite by Todd Travis.
Blurb: They call it The Heartland Child Murders. Everyone else calls it a nightmare. Locked doors don’t stop him. He leaves no trace behind. He only takes little girls. His nickname… The Iceman.
A deranged serial killer roams wintry rural Nebraska with a demented purpose no one can fathom. Special Agent EMMA KANE, a former DC cop and damaged goods now with the FBI, is assigned to babysit burnt-out profiler JACOB THORNE, once the best in the business but now said to have lost his edge, as they both fly to Nebraska to catch this maniac.
Thorne is erratic, abrasive and unpredictably brilliant, but what he and Kane find in the heartland is much more than anyone bargained for, especially when the Iceman challenges them personally. The clock is ticking and a little girl’s life is on the line.
And maybe even more with that, once they find out what he’s really up to.
My Review: My Review: Wow this book is great for anyone who loves those crime thriller type novels. FBI profilers on the job of tracking a serial killer who targets children. It was just like watching an episode of Criminal Minds. I loved the interaction between the FBI agents themselves and the ones between them and the locals. It might be a little predictable in places but the surprise twist at the end totally makes up for it. I was glad to see it has been updated with an edit recently as the copy I had downloaded for review had lot of errors. I give this a 4 star rating.
