5.0 out of 5 stars THE DARK SIDE OF LIFE November 13, 2014By RobertDo you want to walk inside the mind of a serial killer? What makes him tick? What makes him lust for blood? HUNTING MARIAH is a chilling and action filled tale from the dark side of life. This is a far cry from Janice Spina's other books - from children's books to sinister murderer. Being a writer of mysteries I liked the pacing. The characters and wondering why. Who did it is not the question. Blood and guts, twisted, you will long for justice - but does it come? ------------------------------------------------------------------------------4.0 out of 5 starsRiveting & Fast-Paced Thriller!ByAnnikaon 23 April 2018 Format: Kindle EditionHunting Mariah is a riveting and relentless novel that had me hooked from the very beginning. A serial 'school killer' is on the loose and the book begins with the gruesome details of his first victim and her death ... and his particular macabre desire to mark them.Whilst the author successfully albeit uncomfortable reaches inside the killer's mind, the book's main narrative centres on the young woman Mariah and for an unknown reason she is key to the killings.
For a large portion of the book, Mariah finds herself in a health facility and with the help of Dr Roberts is gradually recalling the details that led to her admission. Her amnesia is slowly and tantalisingly broken and the book is mainly told through her recollections of the past, as well as through immediate events surrounding the doctor and her school counsellor Tony, whom she has fallen in love with. Whenever solid foundations seem to have been laid, they are shaken up and no one is quite who they seem!
This fast-paced novel is darkly sinister and menacing, at times macabrely violent. The intensity is balanced by the gentle awakenings of Mariah's memory, her sweetness and innocence and the protective and loving support around 
---------------------------------------------------------------------Clark Slomin5.0 out of 5 starsA heart-pounding thrillerMarch 28, 2015Verified PurchaseI had known Janice Spina as the author of charming, award-winning children's picture books. So when her thriller novel "Hunting Mariah" hit the market, I was quite surprised! The next surprise (shock, in fact), came in reading the book's opening. Raw and brutal, yet Spina tells it like it's completely natural -thereby setting up getting the reader into the mind of the killer. This book started off with a bang!

The twists and turns this tale takes keep the reader off-guard as Mariah retells the events she slowly recalls after surviving her attacker - a man (and there are several men in Mariah's life in the story) whose identity the reader is unsure of for most of the book. Devious poetry accompanies the text, as the killer verbalizes his justification for his savage desires, intentions, and actions.

This story runs the reader through the gamut of human emotions as Mariah, her friends, and family experience and endure what would be life's normal course shattered by tragedy at the hands of a psychopath. I found myself deeply moved at one completely unexpected tragic point in the story.

I won't give much more of the story away. After all, it IS a mystery/thriller, and I want you to be as surprised and entertained as I was.

From the Author

Hunting Mariah was written about twenty years ago but took a back seat to my children's books. Once I published five children's books I decided it was time to edit my novel and get it published. I have been asked in several interviews online what influenced me to write this type of story. My answer to this is nothing. The story just strangely came to me one day and I felt compelled to put it on paper. The killer frightened me and will probably scare a lot of my readers too. Chuckle! I did have two children one at a time in college and since this serial killer appears on campus it made me think of the time there was some trouble on my son and daughter's college campus. It is purely fictional and from my vivid imagination, thank goodness. 
My future plans are to edit and publish two more novels of different genres over the next year and will be publishing two more books in my middle grade series in 2016. Two more children's books are waiting for illustrations from my illustrator/husband, John. My goal is to have Jemsbooks for all ages. I am almost there - need to edit a YA fantasy to cover all ages completely.  Hunting Mariah was a Finalist in the Authorsdb First Lines Contest!
