Andi's Review

 

This is the second in The Psychopath Series which starts with Kevin Mason, a serial killer living in London with his wife and young daughter Leah.  Being that he is a serial killer and his wife is a police officer, it was bound to end bad.  Kevin decided that after the death of his wife he should move with his daughter out of the country and find a place that is more their speed.  Enter tiny island in the Pacific.

 

Police Officer Mike and his wife Sarah had left the busyness of London after winning the lottery to start a small bar on a tiny island in the Pacific.

 

Pam, a young woman, decided after island hopping to set up on a tiny island in the Pacific.

 

When these four individual converged there was blood, mayham, sadness, and death all rolled onto one little island.

 

This wasn’t a bad book, and the overall plot was pretty good.  There were some things that I think could have been left out that were not important to the story line or that did not make sense.  Honestly it was also almost predictable in what would happen, and it made for a somewhat tiring read about halfway through.  You can not name all the characters that you are either going kill or be the killer in the first part and expect no new characters to enter.  This is the main issue that I had, as well as the whole thing with Mike.  You think it is going to go one way, but instead the author is going for maybe another book?  I personally would have ended it differently, but I can see why the individual did what they did.

 

This book is written in a third and 1st person narrative and while it is never confusing it is at times interesting.  Interesting in that when it switches it takes a minute or two to figure out what is going on.  While the two serial killers on the same tiny island in the middle of no where is a little hard to fathom, but I am sure that stranger things have happened.
