This is the first installment of the North East Police series, and I believe, the author’s debut novel. This currently 4-book series has some seriously high star ratings. Therefore, my expectations were high. It fell short for me.
There are definitely things to like about the book. What I liked most were the main characters and their chemistry. The protagonist is Crime Scene Manager Cass Hunt. She has a great dog name Ollie and her love interest is the engaging DCI Alex McKay. McKay seems to be a regular guy with only a modicum of baggage. Cass has major baggage, and I would have liked to know more detail about her background. After I finished the book I found that there a short story called Escape that sheds more light on her past. The plot was good, though a little predictable, and the story flowed well. I liked the short subchapters with the site and time of the action noted. There is a nice run of suspense during the finale, and the ending is good, though I would have liked more show and less tell. Finally I liked getting into the bad guy’s mind.
Overall though, the book isn’t terribly suspenseful. I wasn’t too surprised by the identity of the bad guy as the candidates were whittled down pretty well. There are also a couple of animal abuse scenes that I had to skip over. Most crime fiction readers are women, I suspect, and most women love animals and hate anything related to animal abuse. It baffles me why crime authors feel the need to include these scenes in their books. Some readers will “dnf” a book right on the spot when an animal abuse scene appears. I also thought the dialogue was at times rather stilted.
Because this is the author’s debut, I suspect her writing will grow. As noted above, the star ratings are high for the series. For these reasons, and since I connected with the characters and was basically entertained, I will give book #2 a shot. I do see potential here.
This was NOT one of those. This was a rollercoaster ride that had big huge dips in the middle of it that made you scream with horror, or shout with the words "Stop you best not do that".
This is on of those cliche readers time where I say " I couldn't put the book down" and its true, I couldn't sleep, I need to, but I just had to keep on reading.
Its so well rounded this story that each chapter goes into the next where you say to yourself inside your head 'one more chapter then bed'....
one one more chapter then bed.
And before you know it the morning is breaking light.
This is a fabulous start to a series and I can't wait for book two.
I need to say this, I gotta say this.......I love the cover.
Thank you to the author K A Richardson for allowing me to read and review this book.
I need book 2 now.
As soon as I read the back cover of "With Deadly Intent" I knew it was a book I *had* to read. I love a good Stalker Thriller read!
The characters were very well developed and the story was a fast paced roller coaster of a ride! My knuckles were constantly being gnawed on and at times I yelled (in my head, out loud would have scared a few people!) "No! You really don't want to do that!" I read at every given opportunity, under the bed covers at night, under the dinner table, on the quiet walk home from the school run - whenever and wherever I could.
A fantastic read and I really look forward to reading the next in the series. Highly recommended.
