Book Review: The Specialist
Book 1 in the Tasmanian Thrillers series
AUTHOR: Gordon Aalborg
GENRE: Thriller, Mystery
PREMISE: A woman pits wits against a serial killer who murdered her sister.
MY REVIEW: So in an attempt to get out of this reading rut and to do one of my goals: explore more books out of my comfort zone, I've started going through the books in my libraries adult fiction section one by one. So if you see a random book on here that's adult, it's likely a result from this project.
This is the first one I picked up. I honestly don't have much to say about it. It's usual thriller du jour. The writing is average, the mystery isn't all that mysterious because we already know the killer killed her sister, and it vaguely reminds me of a duller Hannibal.
So...I say this is a library read only type of book. Unless you're really into thriller books. There's a second book that my library has but this was so dull that I won't bother. I've already agreed with myself to not bother with the rest of the books if I didn't like the first one. It'll go faster that way and life's too short to spend time on books you dislike.
WHO SHOULD READ: Hannibal fans, James Patterson fans
MY RATING: Three out of Five
