Book Review and Giveaway: They Never Die Quietly by Daniel M. Annechino

They Never Die Quietly

Description

They Never Die Quietly tells the story of homicide Detective Sami Rizzo, who is assigned to head a task force investigating serial killings in San Diego. Simon, the highly intelligent, cunning, and deceptively charming villain, redefines the depths of human evil. He believes God has given him absolute authority to purify his unholy victims through a ritual that ends in a grisly crucifixion. Driven by warped religious beliefs and guided by his dead mother, very much alive in his subconscious, Simon abducts “chosen ones” and holds them captive in a Room of Redemption. There, the victims helplessly await their crucifixion. Detective Rizzo urgently yearns to solve the case and gain the respect of her male colleagues, but her obsession to apprehend the killer on her own clouds her thinking. When Simon outsmarts Rizzo and captures her, determined to make her his next victim, she must employ all her resources—both physical and intellectual—to outwit the villain at his own game.

 

My Review

I received a free copy of the audiobook for an honest review.

I’ve always enjoyed a good mystery and They Never Die Quietly is no exception. I already knew I liked Daniel M. Annechino’s writing style because I’d read Hypocrisy, which I liked.

The characters are well developed. Sami is a good homicide detective even though that’s not her career of choice. She feels that she must be one because it was her father’s dying wish. Her partner, Al, is her best friend and they have helped each other through a lot the past few years. Simon is downright scary. Daniel M. Annechino’s ability to get into the serial killer’s mind is impressive (and a bit disturbing).

The narrator did a good job with narrating and the different voices. The only problem I had was differentiating between the voices of Al and Simon.

This is definitely a book I recommend. I can’t wait to listen to the next Sami Rizzo book!

Available on Amazon.
