Synopsis:

“The poet is a liar who always speaks the truth.” -Jean Cocteau

Some call him friend or boss.
Some call him husband or dad.
Some call him son, even a favorite son.

But the only title that matters to him is the one the media has given him: The Poet.

A name he earned from the written words he leaves behind after he kills that are as dark and mysterious as the reason he chooses his victims.

One word, two, three, a story in a poem, a secret that only Detective Samantha Jazz can solve. Because he’s writing this story for her.

She just doesn’t know it yet.

Review:

If you love books about books & writing and books about serial killers, then this book is for you!

This fast-paced police procedural/mystery was an excellent read. The premise was well researched and the poetry added an extra layer of intrigue for the reader.

The characters were interesting and a bit of a mystery on their own. Samantha, the detective, did come off a bit flat to me and I’m hoping that is due to this book being the first in a series – I will definitely read the next one to find out more!

The writing was well done and while I guessed who the killer was, I still enjoyed the twists and turns and the procedures the police employed to solve the mystery.

This was my first book by this author and will not be my last. I’m always thrilled to find new-to-me authors and even more excited to find a new series to read.

Thank you to TLC Book Tours and Entangled for the gifted copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
