Synopsis promises excitement author failed to deliver.Anyone who s read my recent reviews usually get a brief rundown of what I read, what I liked and disliked With this one, I m sorry, but I m not wasting my time.The synopsis had my attention, I figured this one was right down my alley How misleading The prologue and first couple of chapters had my attention From then on, I had to force myself to read this book For me, that s not good not good at all I felt absolutely nothing for the character [...]
Perfect Victim is James Patterson Alex Cross light It s not that it s a bad book, it s just that I d already felt like I d read the story and experienced the qualities of the main character in an earlier Alex Cross novel or two by James Patterson The main character, Ulysses Grove, is practically a clone of Alex Cross with a wife who questions her role in her man s life, a boss who is often down on him, a nice kid that he loves dearly but doesn t get to spend enough time with, etc In addition, th [...]
Never read anything by this author but this book got me involved right from the beginning.An FBI Profiler,it is quite a thriller,with paranormal and history.lots of action.To much going on here to try and give you an idea.Best I can tell you is to read it yourself.Going to look up what else this guy wrote
I am not sure why I finished this book What I expected was a straight forward book about a serial killer Instead it was about a para normal serial killer with hints of ancient religions, voodoo and other things that may be good in a Stephen King novel but just didn t cut it for me in this book.
This is the first book I ve read by this author and I was rather disappointed There was too much history of voodoo magic that somehow wound its way into the life of a serial killer, with little explanation too much was to be inferred by the reader There was less profiling of a criminal and mental confusion and breakdown of the profiler An alright book but nothing memorable.
Perfect Victim was my introduction to the work of Jay Bonansinga and, unfortunately, it may be my only exposure The book started out okay it appeared to fall within the crime fiction thriller genre but half way through the book the author introduced a number of potential supernatural plot twists, some of which simply did not pan out.There were a number of editing errors throughout the book the errors consisted primarily in missing and misspelled words It was enough of an issue that it caused a r [...]

What a fantastic book You can t help but feeling a connection with Uly Grove the main character He is a very deep, emotional character and the mystery surrounding him keeps you reading late into the night.This book was a page turner It was full of suspense and I couldn t wait until I got to the end Jay Bonansinga has now become one of my favorite authors I realized after I started reading this that I had read one of the Uly Grove books a while back I now plan on going back and reading the series [...]
One of my favorite things to do is go to a bookstore and pick up a book from a author that I ve never heard of and that sounds interesting This book was one of the best random picks I ve ever had The cases were so interesting and unique and I loved everything about this book I need to read by this author.
Pretty good It kinda took me a while to really get in to it, but it was good I really got into after like page 240 I don t usually finish reading books that don t really hold my attention well, but this was good I am glad that I kept at it
This was a little bit too far fetched I didn t really get the main idea or why any of the stuff happened I like thrillers and mysteries, don t mind a superhero character like Jack REacher etc, but this guy was just too much Don t think I ll bother with any of the other ones.
I think it was ok Though the book wasn t as great as I thought it would be I was still able to finish reading it If you re into thriller novels with a hint of the supernatural and unexplainable powers then Perfect Victim is for you.
Started out good and got way too off the wall weird at the end
Awesome thriller Couldn t put it down and I can t wait to read the rest of the Ulysses Grove series that Bonansinga has wrote.
Lots of insight to how profilers might work The finish is a bit unbelievable
I will be hard pressed to read any of this authors books there were too many issues of consistency in the book itself I plan on sending the publisher a note about it.
