~~ My Thoughts & Review ~~
AT Dusk is Book 5 of the Alex Troutt Thriller series. As you may know, I love reading series and always try to read them in order. That being said, each book in this series can be read as a stand-alone novel.
When a gruesome murder that is eerily similar to an unsolved cold case from a decade ago is discovered, Alex and her team at the Boston FBI headquarters are teamed up with a local Police Dept. Since Nick got injured while trying to bring in a suspect for questioning, Alex will be working closely with Somerville PD detective Terri Askew.
John Mefford always does a great job of building his characters, and this time is no different. He does a great job sharing the dynamics of the relationship that develops between these two strong, independent woman.
These woman team up to catch the psychopath that has been killing “ladies of the night” and cutting their eyes out. They arrest a suspect early on, but then have doubts if he is their killer. He is definitely guilty of something, but something just doesn’t seem to add up. Could they be working two cases simultaneously?
I’ve read and reviewed the previous 4 books, and just like those, I love all the twists and turns in this thriller 🙂
A little boy makes his first kill—and he likes it. He is cunning, charming, and without remorse.
He is a sociopath.
As boy turns to man, what lies inside takes root. He will make a mark on Boston unlike any other, and FBI Special Agent Alex Troutt must figure out how to stop him.
But when she and her close-knit team move in closer, the stakes become much higher as the case takes on a more personal tone. It’s a frantic race to stop a manipulative killer before his web of deceit and destruction escalates into a blood bath of haunting proportions.
“Alex Troutt is quickly becoming one of my favorite fictional characters. I love how she’s constantly having to balance her family life and her job, even though her job is continually threatening to take over.” – Sonya N
“I simply love every single one of John Mefford’s novels. They keep you on the edge of your seat reading late into the night.” – Michele B
“Intrigue and attempts at revenge for long held grudges – the twists and turns keeps your adrenalin pumping.” – Tracy C
