Secrets of a Serial Killer is a suspenseful thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat trying to figure out what will happen next. This is a fictional book about a serial killer that goes unnoticed for years until a teenage girl goes missing and her friends and family find articles about the suspected serial killer. The story is from four character’s perspectives, one is the serial killer and one is the last girl he kidnapped.
I really enjoyed how the story started out as four different stories and merged to one story during the course of the book. It is unusual to get to hear the perspective of the serial killer which I found interesting. All of the characters had very different stories. Secrets of a Serial Killer keeps you at the edge of your seat. Many chapters end with a small cliffhanger, so it is impossible to only read one chapter.
Fiona Boylan and Nicholas Camm did a great job narrating. Both of their voices matched the characters and set the tone for the book. I read the book and listened to the audiobook and enjoyed both without a preference between them.
I recommend this book to anyone that likes creepy thrillers from different characters perspectives. It is also character focused which is something I enjoy in books.
Thank you Net Galley and One More Chapter for providing this book in exchange for an honest review.
