Book Review : Evil at Heart by Chelsea Cain

Eyeballs bobbing in the toilet tank, a head found on a hillside , eyeless sockets. Is the famous Beauty Killer out again? Archie knows all to well about Gretchen Lowell, known as the Beauty Killer and he must find her before she kills again. But how will he do that from a bed at a mental institution? Susan, the journalist for the Herald wants Archie's story but soon enough, Susan and Archie find themselves on a dangerous hunt .

Yep this one has plenty of gory details but the story keeps moving and its hard to put it down.
A great scary novel with plenty of action. I highly recommend it!

Synopsis:

Gretchen Lowell is on the loose. A sensationalist media has turned her into a star. Her face graces magazine covers...women get "beauty killer" manicure.. there are sightings of her worldwide... even kids wear t-shirts that read "Run, Gretchen." Most shocking of all, a fan club has formed - counting the number of days Gretchen Lowell has been free.

Archie Sheridan has hunted her for a decade. He lived and breathed her crime scenes, only for her to be right there in front of him, all along. He's suffered long and hard.. and been left near death. After his last attempt to capture her went spectacularly wrong, he's been hospitalized for months.

When a dead body is found with Gretchen's signature heart, Archie is forced into action. Has the Beauty Killer returned to her ways - or has the cult surrounding her created a whole new evil?






Best regards,
