My Highly Caffeinated Thought: A twisted and grim look at crimes surrounding an online dating site.
THE SILENT WOMAN has everything I love about this series. It brings us right back into Detective Rick's world with case both timely and impactful. It is great how the author does not shy away from the more difficult aspects of a crime. She pulls back all the layers so the reader can truly get a full picture of everything going on without giving too much away.
What makes this series so good is Blaedel's writing and storytelling. The combination of police procedure, interpersonal relationships, and the underbelly of society always meld together to give me an addictive read.
Having read many of the author's books, I do believe this one is the Louise Rick series truly starts. It weaves in more of the gritty and bleak aspects of human nature we continue to see in later books. Don't get me wrong, THE MIDNIGHT WITNESS is a respectable start, but THE SILENT WOMAN will take you into an investigation filled with darkness.
Reviewer Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Homicide detective Louise Rick chases a terrifying serial rapist who meets women on a popular online dating website in this fast-paced #1 internationally bestselling thriller from Sara Blaedel, whose books have sold over 3 million copies worldwide.
An online flirtation can have horrific consequences, as Detective Louise Rick discovers when she is called to an idyllic Copenhagen neighborhood where a young woman has been left bound and gagged after a profoundly brutal rape attack.
Susanne Hansson met her rapist on a popular dating website. But the man is hiding behind a labyrinth of false pseudonyms, and neither Susanne--nor the police--have been able to trace his true identity. With the internet as his playground, the rapist will almost certainly strike again if Louise can't unmask him before it's too late.
Incredible suspense and a diabolical series of twists take Sara Blaedel's wildly popular series to new heights.
