Matters of the heart: Killing Instinct (a Michael Sykora novel third one) by Darcia Helle

Unfortunately I’ve come to the end of this awesome series, this is the third and last time I’ll be with Michael, Nicki and Sean, other characters I’ll miss Isaac and his mom Ruby. What a way to end a series! I don’t know if you read any of this series, it highly detailed, from it’s torture scenes to it’s investigating work, this author can write! The research is evident in every way, from torture, to killing, to breaking and entering, everything is so detailed. We have two men and one woman with the same mindset, get rid of rapist, child abusers. We have more of Sean in this one, I love that, he’s a likable hired hit man, yea I said hit man and likable ( read the series, you’ll find out). He’s hired to kill Maria, he’s done what he’s never done, got involved with a hit. Maria is beautiful, Sean thinks something is way off about this job. He decides to investigate and asks Michael for help, for Sean to ask for help was big. What they find is very disturbing, a Internet site that you can get any fantasy you want, killing, sexual, any fetish your into. It’s run by someone called “The SandMan” He wants Maria dead! Sean, Michael and Nicki go deep and things get real. I cringed, got sad, happy, actually had tears from reading this series. I applaud the author for “HER” imagination and plain awesomeness in knowing what the reader wants. I’ve read other books by this author, I totally recommend you try her.

My review of Wrong Time Wrong Place by David Perlmutter

I’d give more stars if I could. I don’t usually read true stories, so glad I picked this one. The author says he’s not a writer, umm, have you read your book! Dave has a nice job selling real state with a nice car and apartment. He goes out one night and chooses the wrong thing, racing his car around in a parking lot after partying to much. The police caught him and his whole life turned upside down. He lost his job, car and apartment. He had to move back home with his parents. Dave went into a state of depression, he figured the only way was to leave home and go somewhere and take a little vacation. He choose Spain. At first everything was going fine, he stayed one night in a five star hotel and fond a job his first night there. He thought his life was taking a turn for the better. He got to know the people in the area and got along with most. Sleeping during the day and working and partying at night. Dave’s finds out that the police in other countries are way worse than what he went through at home. He chooses the same path time after time. If your 18 and older, learn from Dave’s mistakes please!
