Book Rating: 8/10
Investigative reporter Maxine Revere has a theory: that the five New York City murders for which Adam Bachman is being tried are just part of his killing spree. In probing the disappearance of a retired couple who vanished the prior summer, Max uncovers striking similarities to Bachman’s MO and develops a theory that Bachman wasn’t working alone.
Max wins a coveted pre-trial interview with the killer, whose disarming composure in the face of her questions is combined with uncomfortable knowledge of Max’s own past. She leaves the room convinced, but unable to prove, that Bachman knows exactly what happened to the missing couple. The D.A. wants nothing to jeopardize his case against Bachman and refuses to consider Max’s theory. With no physical evidence, Max has to rely on her own wits and investigative prowess to dig deep into Bachman’s past. The picture that Max puts together is far darker and more deadly than she ever imagined.
As Max gets closer to the truth, she doesn’t realize that she’s walking down a road that has been paved just for her. That every step she takes brings her one step closer to a brilliant, methodical sociopath who has been waiting for her to make just one small mistake.
And when she does, he’ll be there waiting.
Max Revere returns in another gripping, pulse-pounding thriller from New York Times bestseller Allison Brennan.
“Compulsion is a gripping, pulse-pounding thriller that readers will not want to put down.”-Crimespree magazine
Allison Brennan has written numerous books and once again has produced a great mystery that’s full of suspense and intrigue. This story is the second book in the Max Revere series.
As in the first novel in the series, Notorious, the characters are complex and interesting and are further evolved throughout this story.
The plot is action-packed, well written, with numerous twists and turns and sub-plots that intermingle to leave you guessing till the end.
This was another great read and I highly recommend it.
