Naked Addiction by Caitlin Rother - Book Review



Naked Addiction


About The Book:

A ticket to Homicide.

That was the first thing disgruntled narcotics detective Ken Goode thought when he found the body of a beautiful murdered woman. But his transfer became the last thing on his mind when more victims turned up—all linked to the same beauty school his sister attends.

With time running out, a killer on the loose, and the danger hitting too close to home, Goode has to stop this murderer while fighting his own growing obsession with one of the very women he's trying to save.
 

My Thoughts:

Author Caitlin Rother is well known for her spine-tingling true crime books. Now she has taken her investigative journalistic skills to create an equally chilling novel that will both enthrall and captivate readers with its intriguing twists and turns.

Rother's characters are fully developed and personable, and her storytelling skills are evident in this compelling story.  The main character, detective Ken Goode, is a good guy who has had a life full of hard luck and while flawed he overcomes odds to do his job admirably. For me, a sign of a fascinating book is if you can picture it as a movie in your mind - and I easily could see this story playing out on the big-screen!

If you enjoy novels that keep you guessing to the very surprising end, you'll enjoy "Naked Addiction."  I highly recommend it!
