A Killer's Mind (Zoe Bentley Mystery, #1)A Killer’s Mind by Mike Omer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Plot. Police procedurals. As a 14-year-old kid, Zoe Bentley intuits that her friendly next-door neighbor is, in reality, a serial killer. No one, even her parents, believes her except her younger sister. The murderer disappears, and years pass. Zoe spends her life studying criminal psychology, and it becomes her career. She eventually is a consultant with the FBI. No surprise, the murderer of her childhood traverses all three novels and is her obsession.

Liked. Character development – Zoe is complex, as is the killer. Others are equally well-developed, i.e., her partner and his grandfather. No sex, no objectionable language, clean reads. Narration is fine.

Not so hot. Well, a bit slow – not really criticism, a preference. Warning – these are police procedurals, ergo a bit grizzly in crime scene descriptions.

This is a three-book series, start with book one, or you will miss continuity and character development.

Nicely done. Recommended.
