Shiver is rated 2 out of 5 by 1.
The Crimes Are Unthinkable

A serial killer is turning the Big Easy into his personal playground. The victims are killed in pairs--no connection, no apparent motive, no real clues. It's a very sick game, and it's only just begun.

The Fear Is Real

Abby Chastain left New Orleans long ago and for good reason. Now she's back where she feels watched, as if the devil himself is scraping a fingernail along her spine. It doesn't help that Detective Reuben Montoya is convinced she's somehow the key to unlocking these horrible crimes--a mystery that has something to do with Our Lady of Virtues Mental Hospital, a decaying old asylum where unspeakable crimes were once committed, and a human predator may still wait.

The Truth Is Deadly

As more bodies are found in gruesome, staged scenarios, Montoya and Abby are in a desperate race to stop a killer whose terrifying crimes are bringing them ever nearer to a shocking revelation. For the past is never completely gone. Its sins must be avenged. And a twisted psychopath is getting close enough to make them. . .

Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very Slow... For a book that is suppose to be about a serial killer, I had to wait abut 200 pages for the next killing. I found the book drawn out, boring and it actually put me to sleep a few times but I resolved to finish it. I realize that the author stated she bent some of the rules of law enforcement but her take on police procedural was laughable and not bent but highly inaccurate and I do not care for highly inaccurate portrayals, However, the ending was good in the sense that it was not rushed. However, this has been done before. In fact, it was a very popular movie which came out before this novel was written so it was not original either. I have the follow up novel to this, Absolute Fear so we'll see if that one is any better.
