Book Description

John Ames killed twenty women and left their heads at mile markers on the interstate from north Georgia to Florida. He spent the last ten years in prison and with thirty days left before his execution, his lawyer arranged a meeting with Ames and the two FBI agents who arrested him. Ames confesses to killing ten women before he became known as the “Mile Marker Killer,” and says he will give them the locations of the bodies in exchange for Erica and Byron finding the father he never knew who he believes killed his family years before when he was a child. At first hesitant to believe him, thinking he’s trying to delay his execution, they agree to the investigation after he gives them the location of one body. Erica and Byron have less than a month to find the other nine bodies and solve the thirty year old murder of the Ames family. Was John Ames really the son of a serial killer or was he playing mind games with Erica and Byron? The search for the bodies and the father of John Ames leads to more kidnappings and murders and threatens the lives of both Erica and Byron. Does John Ames really care who fathered him and possibly killed his family or does he have another reason for involving Erica and Byron in the search? How many bodies will they find? How many serial killers? Will they find love as they search for evil?

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been a five star book but.......... January 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I will start off by saying that I am conflicted about giving this book a 3 or a 4. The story could have been a five but there were several things that to me made it more of a 3/4.

For those of you who do not like swear words (I think there was one) and sex you will not find it in this book. The subject matter is clear in the fact that this is a book about serial killers. This is a gory subject so I would think you would know that going in.

One of the things that bothered me the most was the detective work. It seems to me that if someone was murdering people the only two FBI agents assigned to this case would not be somewhere else trying to find old bodies. Why would they need to do that when they had plenty of other local cops to do that? Wouldn't they be more concerned about trying to get the new cases solved before someone else gets murdered? Would they not get more help? The end of the book (I am going to tread lightly here because I don't want to give anything away) when the FBI was waiting around when they should have been doing something else was over the top.

Another thing that bothered me were the characters themselves. I just don't know how to describe it other than they acted "juvenile". I am talking about the FBI agents. Complaining about "small" towns, & then the there was "love" story stuff. It almost seemed like we were back in the 1950's (kind of reminds you of Leave It To Beaver). It just did not seem like they were grown ups. I don't know, you will just have to see what you think.

Overall, I would read another book by this author but I am disappointed that the book fell flat in the areas I mentioned.

NOTE: I originally gave this book a 4 but I had to change it to a 3 after reading another book in this genre (a day later). The police work in the other book just put this police work to shame. Don't get me wrong I think the book is definitely worth reading but......

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor Editing and Unreal Dialogue February 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story had a really good premise that, I feel, was poorly executed. I know people say the editing in ebooks is shabby, but this one was unbelievable. At one point, Erica the ex-FBI agent become Eric. And the improper use of the word "use" was driving me insane. I also felt that the conversations were stilted. There was a lack of use of contractions that made most conversations sound unreal and forced. And as much as the two women were FBI agents, they were portrayed as damsels in distress which I found excessively annoying.

The plot: a mass murderer has 30 days left to live and will give up another 10 bodies if the FBI agent of his choosing helps him find out who his father was. It's discovered that almost all members of his family were murdered, but all cases were viewed as accidents and were never investigated. Before the last body is given up by the serial killer, the agents and police involved will escape death a number of times and will continue to be shocked time and time again.

Since this book ends with an open ending, I certainly hope the author gets herself a better editor and perhaps some more experience on writing realistic conversations.

1.0 out of 5 stars Thankfully, costs nothing. January 18, 2012
By MB1016

First the good: the story has potential. Now, the bad: needs editing in a big way and it reads like a poorly directed, poorly acted movie with bad dialog. It is like a porno without sex and bad music.

5.0 out of 5 stars A murder mystery that will leave you with chills June 29, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love murder mysteries and this was a great one. I actually got scared reading it alone. I would recommend this to anyone who likes a good mystery. The suspense builds throughout the book and leads up to the crazy surprise ending. I promise you will be surprised.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ten More Bodies had a lot of promise. January 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I made myself finish this one, because the last book I tried to read, I had to give up, and I refused to give up on two books in a row. I'm giving it three stars because it was a good story that could have been great. FBI agents, serial killers, small-town law enforcement, southern settings, maybe a touch of romance. All things I love in a book. I took a chance on a book with only two reviews, with one being from the alleged proofreader, and thought I couldn't miss. Boy, was I wrong.

The writing was high school level, with awkward sentence structure, grammar errors and an inexplicable dearth of commas where they really should have been. Gads! Chapters were rife with short sentences, quotation marks around conversations with no idea who was actually speaking, and thought processes that seemed more suited to high school students than trained FBI agents. There were characterization issues and problems with realism: federal agents don't hop on planes on a whim, or visit death row prisoners just because they ask. Nor do they conduct entire investigations without reporting to a supervisor. Trained federal agents who happen to be female and "serial killer specialists" don't scream like ten-year-olds and give up on life just because there is no immediately obvious way to get out of a dangerous situation without a male agent readily to hand.

I'll give Ms. Triplett credit for an intriguing idea that could have kept me immersed, but not for writing a good book. The end leaves room for a sequel. Unfortunately for this author, I won't be looking for it.

If grammar errors don't bother you, feel free to read this book - you may just like it. Otherwise, steer clear.

4.0 out of 5 stars What an amazing book by Connie Triplett!
A true crime thriller. Such a rollercoaster, with many emotional peaks and valleys. Ten More Bodies doesn't get 5 stars because the ending was a bit predictable.
