Aberration 18+

4 of 5 stars false1/2
FBI analyst Kassidy Bishop is assigned to the “For You” killer’s task force after a series of sadistic murders bearing the same signature arise in different parts of the country.
The homicides are both calculated and savage, occurring in different states, but bearing the same signature: the words “for you” scribbled at each crime scene. The case chills Kassidy, bringing back memories of her own encounter with a violent criminal five years earlier.
Kassidy’s mentor, legendary agent Talia “The Confessor” Crossen knows the task force assignment is Kassidy’s chance to prove to her colleagues that she belongs in the Behavior Analysis Unit. For five years, other FBI agents and profilers scoffed at Kassidy’s appointment to the BAU, believing she was only offered the position in exchange for her silence about the brutal assault that almost killed her.
The stakes rise when the task force links the killer’s signature to Kassidy. As more and more bodies turn up, Kassidy must delve into her past and the mysterious death of her twin sister, which holds the key to uncovering the killer’s identity.
The closer Kassidy comes to finding the killer, the closer she comes to a deadly confrontation that could cost her everything—including her own life.


****This book was part of a blog tour I was given a copy for my honest review****
I don't believe I need to do a recap of this book, the blurb has done such a lovely and thorough job and to say anymore would be to spoil the book.
Mystery- thrillers or Suspense- thrillers are not usually my thing. I like my books to be liberally dosed with romance, but every now and again it is good to try something different.
Aberration is one of the best of its kind that I have read. It was addictive, with wonderfully descriptive writing, and a interesting plot. Although I have to admit to knowing who the killer was earlier on, it did not detract from the story at all, or the suspense of it. You are left to figure out why? That was a bit more fun that your usual who did it type book.
The two pov's,one of Kassidy and the other the serial killer were both very good, but I must admit to enjoying the inner workings of the serial killers mind better. (Weird, maybe?)
If you do not have the stomach for gory reads or descriptive crime scenes, then maybe this book won't be for you, it is definitely detailed *shudders*.
Although this is not usually my thing I have to say I really enjoyed this read, and by enjoy I mean, I now sleep with the night light on and may need another year between this book and another of its genre, it was that intense. A book that affects you though is always a book that is worth the effort, yes? If thrillers are your thing... then give this author a go, I guarantee you it will get your heart pumping and give you creepy "who's watching me" goosebumps.
4.5 stars!
