Thou Shall Not by Tina Glasneck




Bodies are piling up in Richmond, Virginia, mutilated and tagged. A serial killer metes out justice to those that have escaped it and Alexandria Xandy Caras is on the list. Two years have passed since the workplace massacre; six months since the day her charge of murder was dismissed. When innocent “fan” letters become aggressive acts, Xandy finds herself seeking help from Police Captain Victor Hawthorne. He doesn’t believe in coincidences. Can he keep her safe when all signs point to her as being the killer’s ultimate target? Only Xandy’s death can make it all stop, silencing the deranged killer, who wants more than revenge, but true repentance. Some things are worth KILLING for.

Overall, this is a good suspense/mystery novel. However, I found the novel dragged and could definitely use more action.There is a large cast of characters, who can often be confusing, just trying to keep all of them and their stories straight, especially at the beginning of the book. I was constantly searching for clues as I read; seeking the parts that would put the story together. I find myself nodding thinking I’d figured it out, to have a twist suddenly come out of nowhere. Then the final chapter was...WOW. So yes the book left some things to be desired but it also left me wanting to know more, I will definitely be reading the next book.
