Descrizione

In the mid-1980s the Snow White Killer terrorized the streets of Nashville, Tennessee. Then suddenly the murders stopped. A letter from the killer to the police stated that his work was done.
Now four more bodies are found, marked with his fatal signature. The residents of Nashville fear a madman has returned, decades later, to finish his sick fairy tale. Homicide Lieutenant Taylor Jackson believes the killings are the work of a copycat killer who's even more terrifying. For this monster is meticulously honing his craft as he mimics famous serial murders - proving that the past is not to be forgotten.

    I've read several Taylor Jackson novels now and I think I need a change. This one wasn't quite as good as previous ones. I became anxious for the end, which means I was a little bored with the story. The agonizing wait for the wedding and then no wedding was very anticlimactic. I felt like the kidnapping was somewhat forced. Also the explanations for the family structure of the Snow White killer weren't clear. The mother died in childbirth but were there 2 children? Charlotte and the blind boy? Where did the blind boy come from?

    Homicide Lieutenant Taylor Jackson has been called to a crime scene. The body of a young woman, with pale skin, black hair and an eerie bright red smile painted on her mouth in lipstick has had her throat cut. The scene is identical to a serial killer dubbed Snow White who terrorized the streets of Nashville in the mid-1980s. Back then the murders stopped unexpectedly and a letter from the killer to the police stated that his work was done. Now four more bodies have been found with his signature. Taylor believes the killings are the work of a copycat killer so now she must solve the murders just days before her wedding to FBI profiler, John Baldwin.

    The blend of Taylor's professional and personal life could be annoying but the author has done a good job of keeping the killings the main focus. The book is fast paced, characters are well developed, and the plot contains a surprising twist. This is the second of the Taylor Jackson mysteries, following All the Pretty Girls. I will continue to read the next one of the series, Judas Kiss, as soon as I get the opportunity.

    I thought this book was predictible much like alot of crime suspense. I was not really compelled by any of the characters. i don't normally read series book, this particular one was given to me as a gift. I will not pick up any of her other books.

    Synopsis: The Snow White Killer has returned after a 20 year hiatus to finish his heinous fairy tale. Now homicide lieutenant Taylor Jackson must determine if this new killer is the real thing or a vicious copycat before more innocent girls continue to die.

    Review: A multi-layered plot that can be difficult to follow at times but wraps up smoothly into a neat package.

    Taylor Jackson is a compelling character, and more information is provided about her family and past. Nevertheless, her independence and self-reliance can be overbearing at times. She reminds me quite a lot of Jane Rizzoli in Tess Gerritsen's Rizzoli & Isles series but is not as likeable (this is a personal preference and her personality may still improve in forthcoming installments).

    The other characters are not as fleshed out. Each has some sort of physical or personality trait associated with them so that the reader can keep track but other than that, they are very one dimensional.

    The writing flows, however, there is an imbalance in the amount of information provided about certain characters. On the one hand, some are over-developed and too much information is given away, which hampers the buildup of suspense. On the other hand, the clues as to the killer’s identity are insufficient and rely too much on descriptions of Taylor’s incomplete memories from childhood. Although, the facts are forthcoming, the book does not provide enough detail for the reader to figure out the mystery and we are forced to follow in Taylor’s footsteps. Moreover, the focus on her personal life distracts from the serial killer storyline.

    The book ends on a slight cliffhanger and is a worthwhile read, especially for those planning on continuing with the series. Nevertheless, the first book, All the Pretty Girls, is better.

    Great plot, with multiple layers and a few twists to keep you on edge. The lead character, Lt. Taylor Jackson, is likable and well-developed. This one dragged a little in spots for me but definitely kept me wanting to read until the last word.14 is the second book in the Taylor Jackson series. Though it's always good to start with the first book in a series (All The Pretty Girls), you wouldn't have any problem reading this book on its own.
