Review: Without Mercy by Alicia Dean

 

Without MercyWithout Mercy by Alicia Dean
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

An oft-repeated piece of advice to writers goes like this: "Get the main character up a tree, and then once they are up there, throw rocks at them. Then get them down." Not only does Alicia Dean get her heroine China Beckett up a tree and throw rocks at her, she throws bullets, knives, forks, and the entire kitchen sink--and then she starts sawing at the branches. I dare not share too much of the story except to say this was one of the most gripping stories I've listened to in a long time. Ms. Dean has written other pieces in the True Crime genre. Suffice it to say, all that research is put to good use in this story!! No spoilers, just 5 throwing stars for this story and my hearty enthusiasm--and suggestion to listen to it DURING THE DAY!!!!
