The victims of what may be a serial killer have all tweeted the @BeMyKiller account with the hashtag of #bemykiller and have been murdered in ways similar to their tweets. The police have no leads and have been trying to rule out multiple killers or find whether it's the work of one person. When Hazel and her crew arrive and begin filming though more victims turn up missing.
Be My Killer by Richard Parker had an interesting concept that immediately appealed to me seeing today's society is so heavily focused on social media. I could honestly see this story hitting the headlines and was rather interested in how the author would go about bringing the story together and just how it would unfold.
Unfortunately though this one did not live up to my expectations mainly due to it having just so many characters involved that I never felt I got to where I got close to any of them. The book is just under 400 pages and has around 130 chapters. The story felt like it was jumping from on thing to another in the beginning that I almost wanted to start taking notes on who was who with each chapter bringing in more people and situations to keep track of.
Also, I have to note that while it didn't particularly bother me as a reader this one held a lot of really gruesome scenes in it so I'm not sure that would be for every reader either. While it didn't bother me to be overly descriptive to the point of plain grossness sometimes I did think this was written in to grab attention since the characters and plot were on the dull side in my opinion. Of course I did pick this one up due to seeing some very good reviews so perhaps it just wasn't my cup of tea and others will really enjoy it.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
When her childhood friend Meredith becomes the latest victim, documentary filmmaker Hazel decides these murders would be the perfect story for her next film. She has a theory about the killer that’s different from the theory the police are working, and since they have no leads, she gathers a small film crew and heads to the abandoned amusement park in her hometown – the site of Meredith’s murder.
What she doesn’t realize is that the killer is closer than she realizes, and that this documentary might just put her life in danger…
Can I just say…WOW…I was so hooked on this book from the very first page and read it in two sittings! Be My Killer expertly crafted a thriller that was terrifying from all angles – a twisted and depraved killer, and a creepy abandoned amusement part – it doesn’t get better than that! The murders that took place in Be My Killer were some of the most gruesome I’ve read in as long as I can remember, and I loved it! As horrifying as they were, they were inventive and unique. I will say that Be My Killer is not for the faint of heart! If you didn’t like the gory descriptions in Pretty Girls by Karen Slaughter or couldn’t sit through the Saw movies for the same reason, this will not be the book for you, as there are a number of graphic murder scenes.
This book absolutely read like a horror movie, and is definitely something I’d go watch in theaters and be super scared by! Be My Killer was definitely a book that kept my attention to the very last page. The chapters were super short, which made it easy to fly through the book because I kept telling myself “just one more chapter!” and would find myself reading half of the book, instead. I’m a huge fan of short chapters that keep me wanting to turn the pages, and Be My Killer did that perfectly.
There were a lot of characters in the book, and while most of the chapters were told through Hazel’s point of view, there were some chapters that switched to the point of view of the murder victims, some of the crew members, and a young girl named April. I loved how they all tied together in the end.
This was definitely a win for me, and I’d recommend this one to fans of serial killer thrillers and psychological thrillers who don’t mind graphic descriptions of sadistic murders! A huge thank you to Richard Jay Parker, Bookouture, and NetGalley for a copy of the book. It was my pleasure to provide an honest review. I can’t wait to see what else Richard Jay Parker writes – he’s got a new fan in me, and I’m definitely going to pick up his previous books!
