I received the book as a gift copy from Laura (she and I launched our books together)...

This is Laura at her best. There's nothing that holds the story back. There's no room for slowing down. And flat out, it works. This is a fast pace thrill ride filled with not just thrilling parts but also horror - true horror - with the aura of mystery.

We never quite know what's really happening until the end. And what Laura does is take all these elements - thriller, horror, and mystery - and stick them together into a book.

And plus, check out that cover. It's so simple, but yet so creepy.

You know you can't resist...

Format: Paperback
Deadly Intent has a core set of main characters, Brier being the main one. The town is not real small. They have schools and a police force and shops and a hospital. The population is big enough that there's not a lot of panic when people begin to go crazy and kill others or get killed. They don't even cancel Halloween trick-or-treating. Brier seems to take all the worrying onto his shoulders -- until soldiers block the town and allow no one to leave or enter. It's up to Police Chief Brier and a doctor to somehow figure out what is causing people to go berserk.

People die in bizarre ways. Some are folks you've gotten to know in the book. Others are just townsfolk who, for no apparent reason, kill someone. Without a reason for why they would do such a thing, it's hard for both the reader and the Police Chief to figure out who did the killing, let alone why. With no help from the outside, he's on his own.

The killings are unexpected and horrible, and the cause of the epidemic is unknown.

I would have liked to get to know more of the people in the town so I felt some empathy for them before they kill or get killed. But that is difficult since, as the killings speed up, more and more people are dying.

I give Deadly Intent a rating of Hel-of-a-Writer because probably only an adept writer could have come up with such a creative plot.
