Alex Troutt Thriller, Book #5
A little boy makes his first kill—and he likes it. He is cunning, charming, and without remorse.
He is a sociopath.
As boy turns to man, what lies inside takes root. He will make a mark on Boston unlike any other, and FBI Special Agent Alex Troutt must figure out how to stop him.
But when she and her close-knit team move in closer, the stakes become much higher as the case takes on a more personal tone. It’s a frantic race to stop a manipulative killer before his web of deceit and destruction escalates into a blood bath of haunting proportions.
I have said it once and I will say it again, this is my new favorite series! I really enjoy how we get to know more about Alex with each book and I love the romantic but not quite romantic relationship she is now having!
The suspense of this book is crazy! I kept thinking it was one person who did it in the beginning and then something is thrown in crazy like and I thought it was someone else. I will say in the end I was right, but only because I had 3 suspects in my head!
The other think I like about At Dusk is even though we see a history in the criminal themselves we really don’t get a good idea of why they are doing what they are doing until the end. I liked that as it kept me on my toes and I just had to keep reading!
This is a book for anyone who loves a good thriller. If you have not read the books, you can read each on it own, just the personal stories may seem a bit weird as John Mefford does carry those over as he should, but the stories themselves are a great read and At Dusk is no different! Every time I read a new book in this series I think, this would make a great movie, though the book will always be better!
My Rating of this book 5/5
About the Author
A veteran of the corporate wars, former journalist, and true studier of human and social behavior, best-selling author John W. Mefford has been writing novels since he first entered the work force twenty-five years ago, although he never put words on paper until late 2009.
John writes novels full of intrigue, suspense, and thrills, but they also evoke an emotional connection with the characters.
When he’s not writing, he chases three kids around, slaves away in the yard, reads, takes in as many sports as time allows, watches all sorts of movies, and continues to make mental notes of people and societies across the land.
John lives in Frisco, Texas with his beautiful wife, three opinionated kids, and a feisty fat cat who rules the world.
I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.
