Recently widowed and single mom Texas Ranger profiler Lieutenant Sarah Armstrong works the case along side FBI profiler David Garrity; neither accept the local department's theory that Lucas' wife, Priscilla killed both of them. Instead the two profilers believe a serial killer with a track record in Texas committed the homicides and disguised them to look like a crime of passion. They plan to prove their theory.
This is a terrific Texas police procedural with the jurisdictional war kept in the background rising just enough to make for a strong investigation by the profilers. However, the key to this fine yet standard murder mystery is the grieving mother and daughter as each struggles with the recent death of the man in their lives and that in turn deepens the audience's understanding of the caring mother who uses work as a psychological defense mechanism because she cannot mourn her loss too openly at home; her daughter needs her emotionally strong. Fans will enjoy Kathryn Casey's fine insightful tale.
I accidently discovered this author by randomly picking her second book in the Sarah Armstrong trilogy, The Killing Storm. I was so happy with that novel, that I decided to read the other books in the trilogy. This book is fast paced and draws the reader in from page one. I like how the author doesn't waste time describing transitions between scenes and constantly gets to the drama of the story. That is what keeps the pace so fast paced. I love the relationship Sarah has with her daughter and mother and the balance between being a mom and a Ranger is told in a very real way. Basically that the balance is hard, no matter what circumstances you are in.Read more ›
The murder of a megawealthy businessman and his mistress leads local police to the man's wife, Sarah sees the work of a serial killer. As other similar murders occur, it appears she is right but she finds herself the object of the killer's obsession. As she gets close to solving the case, the madmen closes in on her and those close to her.
Singularity features a feisty, funny, and tough heroine and a truly creepy killer, as it races along to a chilling and unexpected climax.
I have been a fan of Kathryn Casey's true crime books and was interested in see how she did with a fictional account. Her solid writing skills shine through, and while I cannot say I loved it, I did like it and would recommend it to others. Characters are well drawn and the plot is believable, no wild twists but the increasing depravity of the killer becomes apparent before a pulse raising conclusion. A conclusion that hints there will be more Sarah Armstrong novels. We can only hope and pray and beg.
