New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones brings a fresh, modern take to the thriller genre that will keep you guessing until the very end.
“The poet is a liar who always speaks the truth.” -Jean Cocteau
Some call him friend or boss.
Some call him husband or dad.
Some call him son, even a favorite son.
But the only title that matters to him is the one the media has given him: The Poet.
A name he earned from the written words he leaves behind after he kills that are as dark and mysterious as the reason he chooses his victims.
One word, two, three, a story in a poem, a secret that only Detective Samantha Jazz can solve. Because he’s writing this story for her.
She just doesn’t know it yet.
Detective Samantha Jazz has been given a new murder case. The murderer left a note…and it feels directed right at her. It is a poem. Samantha knows this poem very well. She has her guard up but will it be enough.
The story starts with a good bit of police procedure. A lot of readers do not enjoy the hunt…I enjoy the hunt and this author did a great job with the puzzle. She kept the Poet a complete mystery till the end.
Plus, her characters are the best. I enjoyed Samantha. She has had some family trauma and it has affected her career. But, this has not slowed her down. She has an awesome intuition and intellect. But my favorite character is her partner, Lang. He pushes everyone’s buttons and he made me chuckle throughout this novel.
When I first started this book, I thought, well, it’s pretty good. But then…boy did it GET GOOD! Somewhere in the middle I actually slammed my kindle closed and texted my friend and said OMG!
Grab your copy today! And for $5.99 you will not be disappointed! I cannot wait for the sequel!
I received this novel from the publisher for a honest review.
