[Book Review] Girl With A Rose

Her body is frozen, unable to move. Her eyes are locked on the blood leaving her body in a steady string of droplets, collecting in the bone ash porcelain bowl engraved with intricate gold leaves. Her parted lips let out a shriek that no one hears. He just smiles and wipes her tears with cold fingers.

The girl: missing

After fifteen-year-old Kaylee disappears without a trace, FBI Special Agent Tess Winnett is assigned to the case that falls outside of the normal purview of the FBI. With every lead she uncovers, more questions are posed with only one possible, terrifying answer: there are others like her who have vanished, never to be seen or heard from again.

Is there a pattern in these disappearances? What happened to the others who have vanished? Is there a connection, or is Tess chasing shadows?

The first twenty-four hours: critical

Frantic for answers and painfully aware of each passing moment, Tess has a choice to make, one that could save the life of a young girl: was Kaylee’s disappearance a singular event, or was she the latest victim of a serial killer no one knew existed?

The odds of finding the girl alive drop with every second passing by and making the wrong choice would seal her fate. Her blood would be on her hands.

What will you find in the book?:

Kaylee Lewis goes missing one evening, nobody has a single clue about the girl. The only person who could give any leads about the girl is her best friend, Alice, the last person to meet Kaylee before she vanished. Alice is not an ordinary person but daughter of the Governor who does not fall into a good company with FBI Agent Tess Winnett. The Governor has called his attorney so that Tess cannot interview Alice.

What will she do to find out the leads?

The last location where Kaylee’s was on does not seem to be around the governor’s house or the school.

The answers are hidden.

Grab the book to find the answers.

What I admire about the writing and the writer?

Even when you read the work of fiction written by Leslie Wolfe, you are surely going to find a real world set up around you. Details of every small thing is mentioned throughout the novella. The feelings, movements, observation of the characters are described deeply.

Get an idea by reading this:

“She’d walked the long, curvy driveway in a daze, taking in the beauty of the landscape with its fantastic rose bushes, each of them a different, exotic variety. She’d stopped a couple of times and buried her face in the dew sprinkled blooms, taking in their aroma, savoring their intoxicating scent”

There are more number of dialogues present in the novella, which helps to stay much more connected to the story line. The mystery runs throughout the text.

Leslie Wolfe has described the mind of a serial killer, a psychopath in a deep insight. All the answers of how, why and what are present. You will definitely get awe-struck by the amount of detailing and the suspense in the book.

Who will like this book?

I will recommend this book to anyone above the age of thirteen.
All the suspense and thriller lovers ought to try this one.

If you are someone who has not read about crime and thriller much, it can a disturbing one to your mind but can also be a good start to step into the genre.
