The hunters become the hunted…

When Rebecca's childhood abuser avoids prosecution, it sets her on a path to revenge, revenge on any man who preys on the innocent.

Twenty-three-year-old Rebecca poses as a child online and sets her trap, luring one predatory sex offender after another to their deaths.

When a severed head is found washed up on a windswept estuary beach, the police begin their investigation.

The internationally bestselling author of White is the Coldest Colour is back with a heart-racing, electrifying psychological thriller packed with suspense.

Brilliantly gripping, A Mind To Kill will have you hooked from the very first page and holding your breath to the heart-stopping and shocking ending.

My Musings:

Do you know what got me interested in this book? The subject of an abused getting revenge. I have always pondered that question and this book answers that for me.

Rebecca was abused when she was very young and the wrongdoer got away from punishment. And that forms the basis for her revenge. I have always enjoyed thrillers and this one ranks among the tops ones inspite of the killer's identity not being an unknown factor. That was one point on which I was hesitant. Would I like if the story flows with the knowledge of the killer? Well now I can say, yes! I had no problem.

I rather enjoyed the dark story with the gruesome details. Yes, the book sometimes unsettled me  and had me cringing at some of the points. But that didn't detract much from my enjoyment. I loved reading about the characters and Rebecca's journey. I have to say though that if you are not one for grisly writing, you better not pick up this book.

Speaking of characters, as much as I liked Rebecca, my favourite would be Grav. He is one complex guy and inspite of some unsavoury parts of his character,I loved him!

This dark chilling psychological plot is fast paced and had me in its grip till the end. I am ready to check out the author's other works too!

I received a copy for reviewing purposes. This doesn't affect my review in any way.

My one line review : A dark chilling psychological thriller.

My rating : 4.5/5

My reread factor : 3/5
