There's a serial killer on the loose and its up to Jarrod and Marcus to catch this maniac. Jarrod..what a beast!! He is bad ass and doesn't give a damn. His main goal as the detective along with Marcus, is to get cases solved while being a force to be reckoned with. We get his POV and what a POV it is. He is dealing with some unresolved feelings for his ex all while trying to solve this case. We also get the killer's POV and WOW! He was so messed up in so many ways, but it made it even more twisted. Not giving away anything, but this was one hell of a read. Things went down that I didn't even see coming, and in the end, I was just thinking about how I was going to put into words how much I enjoyed it.
I've been a fan since the beginning, and I can't wait to see what he has in store for us next!
I really like this author’s writing and couldn’t wait to get my hands on Red Snow. And I have to say that the author’s been very adventurous with his latest offering. Why? Well, he’s really gone to town with the character and plot development in such a way that I wasn’t sure if I was reading a book written by him! The title. It couldn’t have been more fitting. And I can’t dispute that the book is really well written; however, the detailed account of certain happenings upset me no end.
Now then; if you like tales overflowing with twists and turns, this is for you! So how would one about categorising such a read? It’s certainly not dark because Detective Jarrod Granger isn’t abusive in the sense that he treats women badly. Far from it. He loves the opposite sex, has a raging libido, drinks like a fish and not only lives and breathes for his job, but he’s good at it, too. Therefore, I'd say it's a thriller but with hmm. . . plenty, but plenty of sex! I did think Jarrod's cross-examining methods a tad exaggerated. I felt he overstepped the mark a in the interrogation room and in other places, but his partner tries his utmost to keep him in check. Jarrod has no time to waste though and pulls out the big guns in every sense of the word. (Pun unintended)! He wants results and nothing or nobody is going to hold him back.
Get prepared for nonstop action! The first intensely violent scene is as such that it made my hair stand on end! If there were ever an overload of sensory description in a book, it is here. And I’m not putting it lightly by saying it was like watching vividly horrifying images on the big screen. I have to say that Greer’s creative mind is nothing less than brilliant seeing he brought out such strong emotions in me. The story is told from Jerrod’s point of view and the reader even gets to delve into the thoughts of the psychopathic killer, Jeffrey. I’m not so sure it was a good idea giving me the opportunity of listening to the innermost-musings of such a shrouded individual. I couldn’t get my head around his actions or his reasoning which is probably just as well taking into consideration the reader isn’t supposed to connect to him on any sort of level.
Jarrod is brash, has no finesse whatsoever but likeable. Nonetheless, my esteem for him fell short when he succumbed to the temptations of someone who he shouldn’t even tallied the idea of having a lustful encounter with. You can’t imagine how disappointed I was that the author even considered this scenario. Okay, so the red rag was waved in front of a bull’s nose; and so what! In my eyes, Jarrod needed to be stronger and live up to his reputation, get on with the job and keep his you know what inside his pants.
From that point onwards, my interest in the story wavered; I carried on only to read more barbarities, more tropes and schemes which most definitely comes under a ‘loose cannon’. I honestly did try to get into it and regardless of the excellent writing, this read was not for me but don't be put off by my opinion because it might just be your cuppa!
However, we were given a huge surprise when the author gave us a major twist and had the detective get lost on his journey. He's never npfailed to get the job done and has never let action get in the way of his work, no matter who she was, but he's never met one like this one. The Wild and very sexy turn we took threw me and in a brilliant way. The cocky man was thrown away and out came this new man, the one who was hidden all along. The author gave us depth beyond the norm and really creates characters who were levels of unique personality points and unexpected behaviour, just like real life.
I loved it.
Then we had the excellent pace. We were thrown through a whirl of sex, devious and cocky behaviour, slowed right up as we passed by the epic woman to catch his eye and then thrown straight back in the deep end, as we saw where that led. I liked it. It wS sexy, spicy and very exciting. I liked that I was always kept on my toes, waiting and wondering where we would be taken next.
I highly highly recommend this read and cannot wait to read more by this author.
