This book ispacked with gripping suspense and heart-stopping thrills. A realpage-turner to the end. It's well written with a good mix of characters. One of the best fictional serial killers I've read. Highly recommend.
From the Author
When I wrote Mommy, May I? I had read quite a few thrillers and I would get to the end of thebook, and question: What made the killer a killer? Was he born that way? Did he grow up in an environment that influenced his path to kill andcause great harm? My questions were around nurture vs. nature. I'd alsoread quite a few books on FBI profiling at the time.
Thesequestions made me want to write a book that showed the development ofthis killer. How had he become such a monster? It was not an easy bookto write. However, I wanted to write it. I also wanted to have a flawedcharacter (Helena) who has overcome some really painful obstacles inlife and put her on a new path--one of improvement. Then, there isFrankie (Helena's daughter). In many ways, this story has twoheroines--Helena and Frankie. Frankie is a sixteen-year-old, strongwilled girl, and when the killer takes her, he doesn't know that he mayhave met his match.
If you like thrillers with strong female leads and a little romance in them, I hope you will check out Mommy, May I?
