The first third or so of this book had me thinking it would be a 5 star read The premise is interesting with the decline of the newspaper business small town politics and a vigilante iller I liked Alex s character and was with him in his uest for answers At least that s how I felt at the start Then things started to unravel and severely stretched credibility Apparently every cop in the town either hates Alex and wants to see him suffer or is completely inept Or both Alex becomes some sort of superhero able to survive and conuer most anything He seems to be the only person able to put the pieces together and no one wants to believe he s onto something He needs to do the cops job as well as his own in order to save the world That s how the second half felt to me I had to force myself to Trial Run / Whip Hand / Twice Shy keep reading and to stop rolling my eyesAnother issue I had with this book is a stylistic choice of the author Perez writes in the traditional third person past tense for most of the book but theiller s parts are written in first person present tense I am not a fan of the switch in tenses In general I do not like first person present tense and I find the switch in tenses throughout a story jolting It can feel like two completely different stories when done this wayOverall while the plot is interesting and the writing itself is good I found the story and characters stretched credibility to the point of fantasy A serial ძვირფასი სიცოცხლე killer has been on the loose for years moving from city to city but now journalist Alex Chapa is tracking the story after the murder of a colleague At the same time he is trying to manage the complications of his personal life which include his 10 year old daughter visiting from Boston and his relationship with a new girlfriend For me the story fell flat with characters I never felt Inew and a plot which strained. Wherever You Live From city to city one man walks the streets carefully choosing his victims Mercilessly he cuts their throats And with each ill he leaves his chilling trademark honed to razor sharp perfection over decades of practice He'll Find You But.

Ez s insider s nowledge of the workings of the newspaper industry and you ve got a must read new crime fiction series A pretty engrossing thriller with a very human hero and all in all I really enjoyed this read The dialogue was smart the protagonist s pers This was a very good book I must admit the storyline ept surprising me I started out thinking I wouldn t like the book but as I ept reading I liked it and I liked the plot as it had a few unexpected twists and left me wanting to read So many villainsPerez is so much than just a good storyteller I am left feeling admiration for the hero without Chicken Soup for the Soul knowing how much I like him yet I love a story that leaves me satisfied with the resolution while I continue to imagine how the characters may develop in the future The only criticism I have is that Erin and Mike are too perfect Please let that little boy do some normal misbehaving sometimes so he doesn t grow up to be a serialiller Mourn the readers of this exercise in banality Is it a reflection of society when simple uninspiring literature like this gets published I regret that I couldn t rate it lower than 1 A monkey with a pencil in its teeth could write a appealing piece Plot structure and characters are all simple amalgams that Perez cut and pasted from other contemporary works I had to freuently refer to the cover to verify which book I was reading because this tripe by Perez is so common in contemporary fiction Do contemporary authors share a common brain Avoid this book even if you have a chance to read it without charge This book has a character I can like and root for someone not perfect but not so flawed as to be implausible in the story There s enough to grab your attention action wise and it Misbehaving keeps you guessing all the way through Another good mystery marred for me by a somewhat stupid protagonist. Es no one is safe from this psychopath's murderous rage For theiller has set his sights on Alex and those he loves and only their blood will satisfy himPraise for Henry Perez A riveting thriller Killing Red demands to be read in one sitting James Rollin.
