PRETTY GIRLS by Karin Slaughter

I really did have trouble putting this book down.  I guessed after a bit of reading that Paul was the culprit but didn't see how far reaching it could be.  Claire had always been a quiet girl but didn't realize her husband, Paul, was actually controlling her.  He was so upstanding wealthy and brought so much to her life.  More to her life than she could ever imagine.  But he took her family away from her.  When Claire finally sees him as his true self, she is totally shocked. How could she be so blind?  Great book and it's as good as Gillian Flynn's GONE GIRL.

Wow.  If you like blood and gore, this book is for you.  Leon was learning challenged but no one ever really cared.  His grandmother tried to teach him his ABC's but he couldn't learn them so she engraved them on his body.  Oh yeah!  He then tried to learn them and show by killing women and inserting items with the beginning letters in their mouths.  The police officers had a very difficult time finding him because he left the bodies all over the country.  He was caught but the story to how is the important part.  The brains and strength of the officers were amazing as was the underlying story of who was trying to frame detective Valerie.  Good story a bit too much gore for me.

COBWEBS by Mary Coley

I enjoyed the  book, COBWEBS, by Mary Coley very much.  There was plenty of suspense, great descriptions, and excellent characterization.  When her great aunt calls Jamie to come to her! Jamie leaves immediately.  But, before Elizabeth can tell Jamie what she thinks is very important, someone tries to kill Elizabeth. Everyone seems to love Elizabeth, so who can it be?  I never had a suspicion of who the culprit was.  I would have liked to get to know Elizabeth better.  She must have been a great aunt.
