Not Really Dead: A Gripping Serial Killer Thriller (Tess Winnett Book 5)

January 11, 2020

 

One number, one letter: 3D. Two characters, nine cuts, their edges always crossing, carved sharply into Danielle’s bleeding flesh. She’d seen it before. On his other victims’ bodies.

“Wow. I think I just fell head over heels in love with a fictional character. Tess Winnett is one of the smartest FBI agents and profilers I have come across yet and with analytical skills to rival Sherlock Holmes. Hats off to Leslie Wolfe for easily the best thriller I have read in this genre for many, many years!” – Manie Kilianon, five stars review on Amazon.

The crimes: horrifying

After a high-profile victim survives a brutal attack in her own home, FBI Special Agent Tess Winnett accepts to handle the investigation off-book. With every question she asks, the truth unveiled poses more questions but leads to only one possible conclusion: The Word Killer is back.

The evidence: disturbing

The Word Killer has emerged after years of absence, more blood-thirsty and vicious than ever. Yet his identity remains hidden, a mystery figure among the city’s millions, despite DNA evidence left at each crime scene. An impulsive murderer, disorganized and lightning-fast, fuelled by an all-consuming rage that cannot be quenched. The worst kind of killer there is.

Then why did his latest victim survive? Why was Danielle still alive?

The memories: agonizing

A strong sense of deja-vu brings unwanted memories from a buried past Tess never wanted to relive. But if she wants to save the lives at stake when the killer’s latest deadline expires, she has to embrace who she has once been: the victim, the survivor, the fighter.

If she makes one mistake, lives will be lost. If she doesn’t see him coming, lives will be lost. And the blood will be on her hands.

The best-selling author of The Watson Girl is back with another suspenseful, gripping crime thriller. If you’re a fan of David Baldacci, Melinda Leigh, and James Patterson, you will enjoy Leslie Wolfe’s enthralling police procedural that will keep you reading until dawn.

Best-selling author Leslie Wolfe weaves a suspenseful, gripping crime thriller. With intriguing twists and turns it captivates the reader’s attention from the beginning. The author paints a riveting and mesmerizing story in a very vivid and convincing way. In addition, the characters are drawn with great credibility and conviction. It’s a fast-paced novel that will keep you engaged from the first page to the last.

I enjoyed the story, character development, and dialogue. There were plenty of plot twists that I didn’t see coming and that added to the book’s mystique. When I stopped reading to work, I found myself wondering what happened in the book, and replaying parts of the story in my head to see if I could figure more out. It has been a while since I enjoyed a book this much. It’s a well written thriller with perfect pacing. Not much is as it appears here, which is just the way fans of the mystery, thriller and suspense will want it.

Highly recommended and a well-deserved five stars from me.
