Three decades ago when she was four years old, Agnes Hahn moved in with her Great-Aunts Gert and Ella. Now years later, six months after placing Ella in an Alzheimer's home and the next day burying Gert, she heads to work at an animal shelter near Mendocino while thinking about the Voice that has always been with her. At the shelter stood Police officers Steve Wilson and Loreen Didier; Agnes thinks highly of these two cops and other law enforcement as they go after animal abusers. However this time they handcuff her and read her rights to her; the charge is three monstrous murders in the first degree. Detective Bransome drills her, but Agnes insists she was home the nights of the murder as she does not drive in the dark

Newspaper reporter Jason Powers covers the homicides for the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, but also sees a bestselling true crime book. He makes inquiries into the Hahn family, uncovering a stunner; the accused Agnes has an identical twin, Lilin. However, he finds another strange spin, but before he can pursue it with Ella, her brother Eddie murders her only to have someone kill him with the evidence exclusively condemning Agnes. Shocked Jason feels if he can find the answer to the one question that has eluded him, he will have solved the case; why did Gert and Ella only raise Agnes?

Each time Jason and the audience feel they solved the case; Richard Satterlie spins it in another direction with a stunning twist. The story line contains investigative and police procedural elements, but is predominantly a psychological thriller. Agnes will hook readers who get inside her head and learn her value system is structured around good and bad people as she perceives them. Although others like psychologist Dr. Leahy, Detective Bransome and reporter Powers are fully developed characters, the insightful discerning glimpse at the title protagonist makes for a strong tale.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I enjoyed this thriller... it was pretty exciting and the plot did keep me guessing until nearly the very end. And it did combine some of my favorite plot elements - female serial killers and twins. There were definitely some loose ends left at this book's conclusion, but since there is a sequel, I am hoping that my lingering questions will be answered there. Despite the book's rather self-publishing feel (it's not, the cover art and typography just don't feel.... professional), it was well-written. Other than the holes (which, fingers-crossed, will be answered in _Imola_), my only real complaint was the rather gratuitous sex scenes. Graphic and rather pointless, they didn't really develop the plot and only made me lose sympathy for the reporter (who contrary to the title is the book's real main character). Still, I am looking forward to reading the sequel, especially since the writing style was much stronger than I expected based on the cover... just going to prove that old adage about books and covers once again!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Though the plot centers around her and the book is named for her, Agnes Hahn doesn't have a strong presence in this tale. Agnes lives a very solitary life after her Aunt Ella is placed in a home, suffering from severe Alzheimer's, and her Aunt Gert dies. But all that is shattered when the local police arrest her for a series of gruesome murders.

Enter Jason, a reporter suffering from a broken heart and under pressure from his editor to deliver a good story or else. Agnes might be the central character, but Jason is the lead, whether he's fighting the local cops for the big exclusive or falling for someone who might be a rare female serial killer.

While the tension sometimes falters and the characters are largely ordinary people, the mystery of Agnes Hahn is solid, a twisting tale of police procedure and psychology reflective of the genre's forerunner, Thomas Harris.

My Review:
Every family has skeletons in the closet. Every family has members who hold their memory dear in their hearts and minds. Some family members are just too delicate with their mental psyche to carry those memories. Sometimes, those memories become too real, too alive, ... sometimes those memories... aren't memories at all.

This book was griping and suspenseful. Agnes is a shy, quiet, meek type of female. When strange, yet graphic and grotesque, murders of men start showing up along the coast towns around her, evidence starts to point at her. Agnes is arrested and questioned opening the segue for an intense murder mystery novel.

Family secrets are ripped wide open. Suspense between the police investigating and a known hated investigative newspaper reporter make for a great read. It's great to read a story where animosity and annoyance with each other can be put aside for the problem at hand: Menstrual Murderer.

I was really into this book. The story line was a bit predictable, but that didn't take away from the enjoyment of continuing the "page turning" on this ebook. It was well thought out, well written and the S-curves in the book were fun to ride along with.

The grammar, spelling and edits were great. I was able to zip through the story within days. I look forward to reading the second book in the series, "Imola.

Negative Aspect:
I am not sure if the author was working through a horrible breakup while writing this book, but I was really confused about the obsession Jason has with his ex-fiance' or why her memory kept creeping up. It really had nothing to do with the book, other than the similarities with the caretaker in Ella's nursing home. I loved Jason's character and development, I just felt this ex took away from the story line a little bit.
