The Broken by Shelley Coriell


A true suspenseful novel, that will keep you guessing who the serial killer really is, all through the book. I kept thinking I had figured out who the killer was but then a twist would happen and I would have to go back to trying to discover who the killer was and why was he after female broadcast journalists.



There was plenty of suspense, mystery, and danger. This could have become a gruesome book but most of the murders being committed were done off screen and talked about after the fact. The journey to finding the serial killer was filled with many enjoyable characters that made the book come alive with their antics. I think Smokey made the book.



Agent Hayden Reed spends his life chasing vicious criminals that cause pain and destruction to the community. He pretty much spends most of his waking hours working on solving crimes that seem impossible to solve. The case of the broadcast butcher comes across his desk and he is not able to let it go. The only survivor from the case is missing and he is determined to find her. He is just as determined to earn her trust, to help with solving this case and catch the monster once and for all.



Kate is on the run and has been living her life in hiding, since the day she survived a vicious attack, that was meant to leave her dead. She does not trust easy but, is just as Hayden ready to catch the broadcast butcher and put an end to her nightmare. There are lots of twists and turns that kept me guessing to the very end.



This book was heavy on the suspense, thriller and light on the romance angle but overall a good romantic suspense novel that will keep you guessing who the broadcast butcher is.
