‘The First Victim’ is a horrifying but satisfying read. It starts off with a horrendous, unbelievable event change changes people’s lives forever. Rather dramatic, but frankly speaking, it is believable, cuz things… unwanted, horrible things happens when you least expected it. This book makes me think that horrible things really can happen, just that you don’t know when. And when those horrible, terrifying thing actually did happen and affect your life tremendously, you’d find yourself wondering how the hell it can actually happen to you or the people around you.

This book may be a fiction, but it serves as an eye opener to me. Thumbs up for the author for her splendid writing skill that could easily provoke so many emotions all at once as I read it.

I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars. I received an ARC of this book from Carina Press via Netgalley. I was not required to write a positive review for this book, and I was not compensated in any ways for this.

Book description:

She was like all the other victims. Naked, flawed, helpless…

Fifteen years ago, Emily Wright barely escaped from a serial killer dubbed the Baby Doll Strangler. She wants nothing to do with the small town where she was abducted, but when her father is hospitalized she reluctantly returns home to care for her teenage sister.

When her sister’s friend is killed and left in front of Emily’s house, Emily begins to relive the nightmare she endured long ago. Soon she realizes that her sister, too, is in danger from the killer-and the only person who can help is the man Emily left behind: Deputy Bailey O’Neil. Together, Emily and Bailey must discover the killer’s identity before he claims his next victim
