When did you discover that you love to read? My earliest memories are of books. Trips to the library, shelves filled with books, books scattered all over the house. I will read anything and everything, if it is laying around my house and it has words on it, I will read it.
Something that was usually laying around my house when I was young were my mom’s True Detective magazines. I loved those magazines. Scary, yet I couldn’t tear myself away from them. I remember pouring over the pictures of the body bags, the garish black and white crime scene photos. To this day, I remember a photo of a simple, comfy armchair with a pair of shoes on the floor in front of it. The caption read something like “This is where Suzy last sat, while babysitting.” I remember that so clearly, because it popped into my mind every single time I babysat! Every single time. I would, of course, be thinking.. “don’t think about it, don’t think about it, don’t think about it” over and over in my head, but you know how well that works.
So, what I’m saying is my love for scary, gory, crime, murder, and mystery goes way back. My favorites are the psychological thrillers. You know, the ones where you have some really crazy killer and you try and get inside their heads. Love those. Which is why, I am completely thrilled to discover Cody McFayden.
I started out reading Shadow Man. Loved it. Hugely. Then through the power of my Kindle, within minutes, I was able to get his second book, The Face of Death. Loved it. Guess what’s on my Kindle right now, yep, his third book, The Darker Side: A Thriller.
These books are everything I love in a psychological thriller. Intelligent and extremely sadistic and frightening serial killers stopped only by slightly more intelligent FBI profilers. This is my favorite tv show, Criminal Minds in book form.
And let me say one last thing about the Kindle . This right here is my new favorite reason to love my Kindle. The ability to read an author, discover you love them, and with the press of a button, read all of the rest of the books that author has written. I will be able to finish series so easily now. I love it.
Both books 4 1/2 stars from me.
