The thrilling follow-up to Samuel Bjørk’s internationally bestselling I'm Traveling Alone, which The Wall Street Journal calls “tense and smartly constructed” 

When a troubled teenager disappears from an orphanage and is found murdered, her body arranged on a bed of feathers, veteran investigator Holger Munch and his team are called into the case. Star investigator Mia Kruger, on temporary leave while she continues to struggle with her own demons, jumps back on the team and dives headfirst into this case: just in time to decode the clues in a disturbing video of the victim before she was killed, being held prisoner like an animal in a cage.

Meanwhile, Munch’s daughter, Miriam, meets an enticing stranger at a party—a passionate animal rights activist who begins to draw her into his world and away from her family. 

Munch, Kruger, and the team must hunt down the killer before he can strike again in this sophisticated, intricately plotted psychological thriller by the newest phenomenon in international crime fiction.


Advance Galley Reviews

A girl that had been reported missing and then found, was discovered murdered on a bed of feathers. Bruised and incredibly thin she looked far from the person that had been reported missing a few months earlier. What had happened? Senior investigator Holger Munch and Mia Kruger, who is fighting her own demons, start tracking what little leads they have in an attempt to solve the murder case and prevent another person from being killed in a similar fashion. This book is the first I have read by Samuel Bjork but I'm very certain that it will not be the last. It was a book I had a hard time putting down and the conclusion of the book was as frightening as I feared it would be. An excellent read, which I enjoyed and I'm sure others will too.

Started this book but felt like I was missing many of the characters development since I didn't read the first book. Stoped halfway since I want to read the first one then continue on to this book, just don't want to miss out on anything.

Rating: 4 of 5 stars. Book 2 in the series, but can be read as a stand alone. This is as Scandinavian noir as it comes, a young girl's starved boby is found posed with feathers, candles, and other occult trappings. Who killed her and why? Yes, there are lots of red herrings and side issues galore but it's a good read.

A Penguin First to Read ARC e-book in exchange for an honest review. This book was so disturbing. Second in the Holger Munch and Mia Kruger series, I felt like I missed a lot of character development from not reading the first one. The plot itself though can be read as a standalone. A young woman is found murdered in a ritualistic manner with no forensic evidence to be found. Mia is struggling with inner demons and Holger drags her back from death to work on the case. There are no physical leads until a hacker uncovers a copy of what was once live video footage in the deepest darkest part of the Internet, of a young girl trapped in hell. This is not action packed or fast paced but it still manages to horrify you.

There were parts of this that freaked the hell out of me and the surprise of whom the killer was, when you thought you knew that it was someone else, was a nice hat-tip to old school mystery novels. I was able to grab Samuel Bjork's first book in this series, I'm Traveling Alone, before reading this one and it was a big boost to understanding the different characters, their motivations, their working styles, etc. These aren't your typical American cops and that adds so much to the story. Again, there was another hat-tip to old noir detective novels in that they are all flawed in their own, yet more updated, ways. Samuel Bjork has quickly gone to the top of my list of favorite Scandinavian authors, a list that seems to grow and grow. There is something grittier about them and more real than your basic US thriller or police procedural. They seem to have tapped into something new about today's society, their killers and protagonists aren't the norms we've come to expect from the traditional blacks and white of their U.S, versions. There are so many gray areas in life and the Scandanavian writers are mining that and finding gold. Can't wait for his next book.

This was definitely an interesting murder mystery novel. It's about a troubled teen who is found dead, naked on a pile of owl feathers. Holger Munch runs the squad that is investigating this case along with his protege, the troubled Mia Kruger. Together they struggle with personal issues, while trying to make sense of the horrific crime spree that's taking place. This is the second book in the Holger Munch & Mia Kruger series but it works pretty well as a standalone as well. I might check out the first one after reading this though.

Right from the first page, Samuel Bjork draws you in with intriguing mystery and murder. The mystery is overshadowed by the character descriptions, which are in great detail throughout the novel. Unfortunately, I would have preferred learning a little less about our characters investigating the crime. Each chapter comes from a different perspective as we delve deeper into the lives of every single character and makes following along confusing. The story is more character driven than plot driven and becomes somewhat repetitive at times. I was unaware that this novel was a continuation, and perhaps that would have changed my opinion on the characters and the story.

This was, overall, a good read. Sometimes, the point of view changing frequently was hard to follow. I would recommend reading this. I am definitely going back to read the book I'm Travelling Alone

This is the second Samuel Bjork novel I have read. I enjoyed this one but would say I preferred I'm Traveling Alone. I found The Owl Always Hunts at Night to be a bit hard to follow at the beginning, and the ending did not really tie up all the loose threads. However, I would definitely keep reading the Munch/ Kruger novels. Bjork definitely knows how to keep his readers engrossed.

I admit, I am always a bit nervous when sitting down to start a new crime thriller. I'm afraid it won't be thrilling enough, or compelling enough, or shocking enough. I am especially nervous when reading an author I haven't read before. However, with The Owl Always Hunts At Night, those nerves were unnecessary. From the very first chapter, I was sucked in. This book kept me on my toes the entire time I read it. As soon as I thought I had a grasp on the plot, or a character, I would be proven wrong, again and again. Which I thought was absolutely brilliant. One of my pet peeves in crime thrillers is how neatly things fall into place. Clues are conveniently uncovered by a brilliant detective. Sure there are missteps, but in the end the crime is solved and justice prevailed. What I really enjoyed about this book, is that the unfolding of the crime investigation felt very real. The detectives are flawed people, struggling with their own demons while attempting to solve this crime. Sure, they are brilliant, but it wasn't one particular lead investigator taking charge and saving the day. It took the entire team to hunt down the murderer and take them down. The way the investigation unfolded felt very real too. The false starts and dead end leads. It seemed like every new development faced a surprising obstacle, and that too felt real to me. Rarely do we uncover all the facts in life at the breakneck speed of fiction. The reader wants to be compelled into reading more, and dead end cases don't make for good fiction. There is art in the way Bjork weaves the frustration of the investigation in a way that makes the reader want to continue turning the pages. When all the pieces finally did move together, the tragic twist felt even more real. Throughout the entire novel, the sense of realism was maintained. I didn't feel any standard plot tricks or cliched characters in order to move the story forward. The flow, the pace, the twists and turns, all were believable, even if they were disturbing. That sense of realism, of being able to lose yourself entirely to the novel without a sentence or quirk forcing you out, is very important to me, and was exceptionally done here. In all, this novel was brilliantly done. My only complaint is that the end wasn't as satisfying as I had hoped. I was left, shocked and reeling with no real sense of closure. I was given an ending, but there were details left vague and obscure, that I felt a few paragraphs could have easily summed up. I give this 4/5 stars and would recommend the book and the series to anyone who enjoys crime fiction, thrillers, suspense, mystery or police procedurals.

I received an advanced copy of this book in electronic format from firsttoread.com in exchange for an honest review. This review is also posted to goodreads.com Mia Kruger and Holger Munch have to be the world's most unlikely pair of detectives but through two books (both stand alone and do not have to be read in order) are becoming a favorite of mine. Samuel Bjork is a master storyteller, weaving layer upon layer of action, rhetoric and character building into a culmination that satisfies. His use of multiple suspects, each with different motivations, throws us off course but each lead brings you closer to solving the crime.

This was a good book. It was reminiscent of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, similarly set in Scandanavia with an unusual female protagonist (Mia Kruger) and her male counterpart (Holger Munch). Unlike Steig Larssen’s book, this one seemed like it could have spent a bit more time in character development but that could also be because it is book 2 in a series and the author expects the reader to be familiar with the protagonists. The story was well-written, easy to follow and held my interest. It was suspenseful with a few twists without being unbelievable and without the jarring effect of a twist that’s too out there. There were some things that didn’t make sense in the book, were never really explained and left me feeling a bit confused, but didn't really affect the quality of the story as a whole. Overall, I’d recommend reading this book, but would suggest reading book one first so the reader has a better understanding of the background and characters of Kruger and Munch.

I had a hard time getting into this book. The premise was interesting, but it wasn't executed well. There were too many characters, some introduced with very little explanation. Because there were so many characters, I had a hard time connecting with them. Besides that, the mystery was resolved too fast. It was too convenient. Overall, I was disappointed with this book.

This was a great read. Kept me guessing till the end. Fabulous writing.

The Owl Always Hunts at Night by Samuel Bjork is a dark yet utterly enthralling police procedural set in Norway. Althought this latest release is the second installment in the Holger Munch & Mia Kruger series, it can easily be read as a standalone. Investigator Holger Munch and his team are called to the scene of a seemingly ritualistic murder of teenager Camilla Green. Uncertain exactly what they are dealing with, Munch is certain he needs the help of Mia Kruger, a brilliant investigator who is currently on leave for psychological issues. Although Kruger has yet to make peace with the tragic death of her twin sister, Sigrid, she is quick to assure Munch she is ready to return to work. As many of the team members (including Munch and Kruger) struggle with turmoil in their personal lives, the investigation slowly progresses as they uncover puzzling information and a viable pool of suspects. With a predator on the hunt for the next victim, will Mia and Holger unmask the killer before he or she strikes again? In his mid-fifties, overweight and a heavy smoker, Holger’s dedication to his career resulted in the demise of marriage ten years earlier. His relationship with his daughter, Mariam, is a work in progress as he tries to make up for always putting his job ahead of his family. Despite his determination to be there for her and his granddaughter, Marion, Holger is working long hours trying to solve Camilla’s murder. Mia is going through the motions of therapy in order to return to work but she is not fully invested in actually working through her issues. She relies heavily on alcohol and drugs to cope with day to day life but she is still able to function well enough to contribute to the investigation. While Mia does experience some very keen flashes of insight, she is also somewhat distracted by memories of Sigrid and the loss of the rest of her family. Will this lack of concentration interfere with her ability to zero in on a motive and a suspect for Camilla’s murder? Several of the other members of the investigative team are also somewhat distracted as they try to catch Camilla’s killer. Kim Kolso is contemplating significant changes in his personal life that will also have impact his career. Jon Larsen aka Curry is undergoing tremendous upheaval in his relationship and he is drinking heavily as he tries to cope with his girlfriend’s reaction to his latest misstep. Cyber expert Gabriel receives a shocking bit of evidence from someone from his distant past, but can his source be trusted? Living with her doctor boyfriend Johannes and staying home to care for their six year daughter Marion, Miriam’s relationship with her father is much improved. Feeling a little restless and yearning for her old life, she reconnects with her old friend, Julie, who introduces her to animal activist Ziggy. Although Miriam realizes she has a lot to lose, she cannot resist spending time with the charismatic young man. The investigation into Camille’s bizarre death yields very puzzling and disparate clues. Camille has a troubled past and she disappeared from a children’s home run by Helene Eriksen. Helene is co-operative but both Holger and Kruger feel like she is hiding something from them. After news of Camilla’s death goes public, local man Jim Fuglesang confesses to the murder and while Mia does not think he is the killer, she cannot discount the disquieting pictures in his possession. And what, if anything, does the discovery of a macabre film of the victim have to do with her subsequent murder? The Owl Always Hunts at Night is an extremely atmospheric police procedural. With a few well-paced red herrings and some pivotal misdirects, Samuel Bjork brilliantly keeps the killer’s identity and motive for the murder carefully obscured. The investigators’ distractions and Miriam’s questionable choices ratchet up the tension and will keep readers guessing whodunit and why right up to the novel’s stunning conclusion. This newest addition to the Holger Munch & Mia Kruger series is absolutely outstanding and I highly recommend this spellbinding mystery to fans of the genre.

The Owl Always Hunts at Night by Samuel Bjork is the second in the Holger Munch & Mia Kruger series. Unfortunately, I did not know beforehand and had not read the first book, but luckily, I was still able to follow along with the characters and it didn't take away from this book. Set in Norway, a girl goes missing and found three months later strangled, naked and posed in a pentagram with candles and feathers. Holger Munch is the lead detective in the case and pulls his troubled friend and coworker, Kruger, into the fold to get her unique views on the crime and the killer. With a lot of point-of-view changes and lots of characters, it becomes a little confusing but all comes together as long as you pay attention. I really enjoyed this noir mystery and hope to eventually go back to read the first in the series.

The Owl always hunts at Night was a fantastic read. It was so interesting, but yet disturbing at the same time. Bjork did a great job of making you relate to the characters. The POV switched constantly, which was a tad confusing. I found myself trying to guess who the killer was the whole novel. Let's just say I was not correct several times.

The Owl Always Hunts at Night is a Nordic Noir story following the main characters of Holger Munch and Mia Kruger. Munch and Mia are detectives and their latest case is one for the books! A local botanist comes across a body of a teenager who appears to have been part of a ritualistic killing. The body is laying on a bed of owl feathers and inside a pentagram of candles. In addition to their murder case, Munch and Mia are both battling personal dramas. Munch has come to the realization that his ex-wife is about to officially move on and remarry. Mia has recently been suspended and mentally is not in a good place, as she mourns the death of her sister, Sigrid and contemplates ending her life. Munch is able to get Mia back on his team to solve this investigation, as he knows her passion will drive her to stop at nothing to catch the killer. Flashbacks of the past for main characters and those we are yet to meet intermingle with the present case throughout the novel. In addition to these storylines, we are also involved in following along with Munch's daughter, Miriam Munch. Recently Miriam has met a man named Ziggy and has joined in with a group of animal rights activists, which is a world she was heavily involved in before becoming a mother. The relationship between Holger Munch and Mia Kruger is the heart of this novel and drives the reader to care for the future of both individuals. The novel struggles to maintain the momentum of solving the crime the story is centered around. Immediately you are engaged in solving the case, but somewhere throughout the middle of the story you get lost in the muck of backstories. It is not until the end that the suspense begins to build up again as they desperately try to catch the killer before he takes the life of another victim. Some elements of the story were a bit overdone for me and not necessary to keep my interest. I also wasn't entire sold on how all of the characters ended up being connected. I had the misfortune of entering into this series on book two, so I do feel that my review may be a bit biased given this information. As a standalone, which the novel is clearly not intended to be, I was sadly unable to know the complete history of Munch and Mia, something I think would have enabled me to connect even deeper with the characters. Overall, I greatly enjoyed this novel and am planning on picking up the first in the series, I'm Traveling Alone.

What a phenomenal read!! When a troubled teenager disappears from an orphanage and is found murdered, her body arranged on a bed of feathers, veteran investigator Holger Munch and his team are called into the case. They are the best in the country as they also have reinstated into duty star investigator Mia Kruger. Mia was on leave, struggling with her own demons and looking for peace, but she could not refuse Holger’s call. Her boss needed her, so it’d had to do! The story develops in a cold Oslo, in October, with the winter coming on rapidly. The country is freezing and so are the hearts of many people, as the young girl is found dead. The Norwegian police must find the killer soon! The narration is multidimensional and is one of its pros! There are different story developments, including almost every character mentioned in the book. As the suspects are piling up, so are their stories. This makes the reader part of the investigation, as all the evidences are provided open handed. Could that be the one? Why did he act like this? Is the behavior normal? Bjørk’s writing is amazing! It is a book that gets the reader’s attention from the first chapter and holds it until after the last fullstop. It is a classic Nordic Noir and yet it is not! It is a dark creepy thriller that will get under the reader’s skin and won’t leave for a long time. Traumatic experiences can cause many different behaviors. It is visible in all the different suspects in Holger’s case. Something is wrong with each and every one of them and that is the beauty of it. Until there are not enough leads and the case cannot be held up in court. Human relationships are there too. People’s feelings and everyday life. The routine that makes us bored and not grateful for what we already have. Our quiet life. The people we love and love us back. Our harbor. The peaceful harbor is nowhere to be found in this story as it runs through the events. The really fast pace that follows the murder case investigation leaves no room for rest, no room for sleep as long as a twisted murder is free out there. But who could really believe it was him!? “The Owl Always Hunts at Night” is second book in the “Holger Munch & Mia Kruger” series. Even though it can be read as stand alone, it would make more sense to read the first book in order to understand more on the characters’ background.

It was a perplexing read but I took it on as challenge of solving the murder before the conclusion. There were a lot of side stories that really weren't pertinent to the story line and took up time that could have been better spent developing the conclusion. It was a lot of build up for a sudden end. While I appreciate the efforts at making the reader think and figure out the conclusion, it was a bit too much after such a sudden and cryptic end. Knowing that this is not the first book in a series, I am willing to start at the beginning and maybe I'll feel better overall.

This book had my attention from the first chapter. While the frequent change in POV was a little distracting at first, in then end it didn't bother me or distract from the story. The development of the characters and introduction of small sub plots added to the mystery. I felt the ending was a little anticlimactic, however the story was interesting and unique, and I enjoyed the book enough to seek out other work by the author.

When I started reading The Owl Always Hunts At Night, I had no clue what to expect from it. Something in the description had intrigued me, but now I don't remember what it was. The novel is the second in a Norwegian crime thriller series, but I wasn't aware of that until after I had started reading it and went to add it on Goodreads. The good news is it works fine as a stand-alone. I'm definitely interested in getting my hands on the first book to get more background on the main characters - Holger Munch and Mia Kruger. From my understanding, the series is based around them, so I would definitely enjoy getting to know them (and their dysfunctions) a little further by delving into novel one of the series. Sidenote: I've actually read a few novels this year that were translated to English and have enjoyed the stories very much. (See: As Red As Blood) Owl is an interesting and disturbing novel, if not also over-the-top. The story follows Holger (a higher-up on the police force with some family drama) and Mia (a report/partner of Holger's who has a lot of personal issues) as they hunt down a murderer. The murderer is sadistic - he has arranged his victim naked upon a bed of bird feathers within a pentagram. As the story goes on, you come to find out how disturbing the killer really is. My biggest dislike with this story is the abundance of characters- there are a ton and it gets difficult to keep up with them all. Not to mention, within one family there's a Marion, Marianne, and Miriam. If that's not confusing, I do not know what is! I think another issue I have has to deal with me having no prior background knowledge of the series. There are some random scenes in the book that make absolutely no sense to me and aren't wrapped up at the end of the novel, which I'm assuming means there will be a third book in the series. So now I have two additional books I need to read because I read this one. While I think the plot and characters were confusing at first, I think the story is interesting and unique. I definitely enjoyed this book and will probably delve further into the series with books one and three. Do you often read novels that have been translated? What are some that you've enjoyed? The Owl Always Hunts At Night will be released in the U.S. next month.

I'm not sure how I feel about this book. The premise was really interesting and I enjoyed learning about the characters. However, the CONSTANT change of POV was really distracting. I would read about one character, be really interested in learning more, but then BAM it would be on to the next. A couple chapters later it would go back to the same character. It made for a confusing read at time because it followed so many different characters. There were also multiple times where I would put down the book and just not really want to pick it back up. Towards the end, I didn't want to put it down though because I really wanted to know what happened. However, the ending wasn't a satisfying one. I would probably give this a solid 3 stars. I enjoyed it for the most part, but it was lacking.

The prologue showed great promise. It had a fabulous Nordic Murder Mystery feel from the start. Then it fell flat towards the middle of the book. The story for the most part was good but it was missing something. The supporting characters of the investigative team had small B plot lines but I just didn't care. They were peripheral to the main story arch and didn't provide any forward momentum. The character Mia came across overconfident and sloppy. Some of her mistakes made the novel slog for me in places. Whereas her male counterpart Holger seemed tired and overindulgent. I might have felt differently had I read the first book in the series.

Very complex story with many moving parts, dozens of players, and near constant changing of narrator. The writing style is very reminiscent of Stieg Larsson. The writer is artful in the ability to carefully place subtle clues at the beginning of each section of where we remember this character from previously for the lesser used characters, so while there are a lot of people involved in the telling of this story, it’s not choppy or hard to follow. Holger Munch, oddly referred to as the “fat detective” multiple times in the story, (I can only assume this is from some quirk in the translation or a cultural difference in writing) and Mia Krüger are together again in the second volume of their story. It opens on a tale of abduction of two children, a brother and sister, with the sister discovering her brother has escaped from somewhere that they’re being held and treated badly. She finds him in a shed of some sort, covered in bird feathers, standing over the broken body of a bird. The book cut scenes to present day and we don’t return to this story or find out who this was until much later in the book. Holger and Mia are working to find out who killed and left a young girl in a ritualistic way in the woods. Candles, pentagrams, and bird feathers everywhere, soon followed by a video still of a previously live feed of the young girl in a cage of some sort being treated like a hamster. She must run for her food and light and has been kept like this for months. Without giving any more of the plot away, Holger and Mia are racing against time to find out who is responsible for this atrocity as someone close to Holger will soon find themselves in the same position. Is it the young boy from the opening chapter? Now a man and the brother of the woman who runs the home that the first girl disappeared from? Is it the odd man that lives close to the murder scene who appears to have some kind of social disorder? Or could it be a previous patient of the home, returning to a fertile field of victims? The book effortlessly ties all these players together and makes for a breathless flight to the end to determine “whodunit” and whether the latest victim will be saved in time.

This series (one of my favorites) it is a must read for fans of Nordic Noir. While the sequel to "I'm Travelling Alone" wasn't quite as creepy or twisted as the 1st book and its multiple storylines, it's a little easier to follow - so I'd actually suggest reading the 2nd book first, and if you like it read the Original for more backstory. I look forward to more stories with Mia, Holger and the team.

Not having read this author or his previous books before, I wasn't sure what to expect. I was very pleasantly surprised! An engaging story which included all of the elements of a good mystery - strong characters, a well defined plot and a believable outcome. The story definitely had some graphic scenes that I don't typically see in novels. It didn't detract from the novel however, it was a bit surprising in parts. I enjoyed the story enough that I will seek out his back listings.

I haven't read the first book in this series, so I am missing some character development, but I really did enjoy this mystery and the characters as I saw them here. One if the things I liked the most was the times where Mia was working out her ideas about the case. Her thought process was very interesting and just how I tend to try to solve mystery books: rapid-fire questions that lead to more and more and try to keep my train of thought. Some of the things were a little predictable and the ending was a bit anticlimactic, but I'm definitely interested in reading the first book and any more in the future. My only other complaint is really nitpicky and didn't affect my rating, but it was so hard to keep track of all the women that had super similar names. Mia, Marianne, Marion, and Miriam. That was a challenge at times.

This book was so good and incredibly hard to put down! The mystery and suspense kept me wanting to know what was going happen next. I can't wait to see what this author comes up with next! I'm a fan!

I had a hard time with this one. Couldn't connect with the characters. I also thought the plot was wildly unbelievable, even for a crime novel.

I really really enjoyed this book. It was a very creepy plot, maybe too creepy for some people. The depth of the characters was amazing and really added to the story line. I want to go back and read the first book in the series, even though this can definitely be a stand alone book.

I did not read the first book in the series and have not read anything from this author before, but was hooked. It made me reminiscent of the girl with the dragon tattoo trilogy. The troubled and magical nature of Kruger added a lot to the story. The only thing that bothered me was how Munch was repeatedly referred to as the fat one. I could understand adding that so the reader could conceptualize the character, but it quickly got old. I plan on going back and reading the first book now.

Second book in this series I have read and enjoyed. The story grabbed me from the beginning and kept me entertained throughout. The characters are detailed and well-drawn, flaws and all. Munch and Kruger are investigators in Norway involved in a bizarre ritualistic murder that keeps them on their toes, with twists and turns and emotional stress along the way. The only complaint is that his family is imperiled during the investigation similar to the first book. Highlights Kruger's struggle with suicidal thoughts and drug and alcohol abuse while trying to solve the case. Will read more of this author.

This was a deeply disturbing read. I have never read anything with the same intensity as this one before. The book revolves around the case of a teenage girl whose dead body had been found in a forest clearing. It is then when Holger Munch and Detective Mia Krüger are determined to find out who the killer is. Evidently, there's lack of evidence in the scene and so it is way difficult to solve the case anytime soon. All throughout the book, you begin to make multiple theories that would often turn out to be purely untrue. Everyone's a suspect, and the suspense that leads to the ending is heart-thumping and tremendously engaging. I would definitely recommend this to fans of crime reads. Samuel Bjork knows exactly how to narrate a perfectly plotted crime, and his writing is undoubtedly worth the read.

You get some books that take a few chapters to really get drawn in; fortunately that wasn't the case with this book. It had my attention from the first page and I couldn't put it down. The only thing I had trouble with was keeping some of the characters straight because the names were so unusual for an American like me. This book is worth the read!!

I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to read The Owl Always Hunts At Night. This book was very good. There was a lot going on in this story. I enjoyed the characters. They all had their own story. The case that they investigate had so much more to it than I could have imagined. The ending definitely wasn't what I expected. The main character, Mia, is a great investigator. She has endured things. She has yet to deal with her past. Her boss constantly goes out on a limb for her. This story reveals a lot about its characters. I would definitely recommend this book.

We all battle demons. How you handle them and overcome is up to you. Mia Kruger is a great example of how one may struggle but resolves to throw herself into her job. Will the passion for the job and finding the twists and turns of a psychopath help heal her? What role does the mystery man in Miraim Munch's life play into this mystery? Is she going to be next if so can the detective team save her in time? You can only find out by reading this provocative, edge of your seat, riveting tale. However I don't feel this book is for me, I'm having trouble getting into it and I'm now eight chapters in. I'm going to continue to push through and see how far I have to go before it picks up (if it picks up). I'm sorry I've given this book my best shot. I'm now at the beginning of chapter ten but the writing is just not catching on me. It has an interesting premise but it's not very well written in my opinion.
