    • Blood for Blood was both a page turner and a disappointment What began as an edge of your seat read quickly deteriorated into a muddled pool of feints and missteps The book starts on a commuter train where Ziba MacKenzie is engaged in people watching It s clear that she is keenly observant as she relates the minute details of her fellow passengers and silently passes judgement on each The reader learns that MacKenzie is a successful independent profiler , in the process of emerging from [...]


    • It s rare that a single side character causes me to cut a book rating in half, but here we are One of these days I m going to read a book with a strong, independent female lead 2018 wasn t a good year for me and such a book, but I entered 2019 ever hopeful One might be fooled into thinking that this is one But no What we have instead is a woman still broken from the death of her husband Which is fine Could be great, even It s a great opportunity to show her inner strength as she comes to It s ra [...]


    • The first book in a new crime series by debut author Victoria Selman Ziba MacKenzie is a profiler, and her latest case involves a serial killer who is back after a long hiatus.A fast paced crime mystery with a strong female lead I usually enjoy books with strong female protagonists, but Ziba was kind of annoying She seemed a bit of a know it all, and the weird phrases she uses threw me off Additionally, I would have liked backstory about Ziba I m guessing that as the series continues, The first [...]


    • This was my First Read pick for January It s not a book I d recommend, and it s not a series I ll follow Some things that bothered me include Ziba is an annoying character who tries too hard to be a badass She has a habit of calling people ridiculous derogatory names, constantly, such as moon chicken and DI Dipstick She also uses her personal lingo for common things, such as lifer juice instead of coffee And a man s hands are dick grabbers I swear, she never just talks like This was my First Rea [...]


    • A proper serial killer thriller with a great main protagonist and a twisty page turner with some great writing Part of my First Monday Crime reading so will review properly at a later date Looking forward to the next in the series


    • This book was one of the two choices I made for the Kindle First offer for January I ve given up on it at 30%, thoughit s full of military slang and I just got totally cheesed off having to keep looking up what she was on about Especially as Ziba no longer works for the military There s just no need for it and for me it ruined what is in essence an interesting story Such a shame.She uses the word ass a lot as well when it should be arse seeing as we re based in England Sentences like This book w [...]


    • I found a lot of issues with this book First, it always bothers me when strong female characters aren t written as people In other words, a common trope is to have the female character solo NEWSFLASH women aren t any less powerful when they ask for or accept help Many pages were fluff it seemed like the author was trying to reach a certain number of pages rather than writing to move the plot forward The author also restates things regularly, which is extremely frustrating when you r I found a lo [...]
