The Mirror Man

Penguin Random House Audio. (Killer Instinct, Bk. 8). Jan. 2022. 15:47 hrs. ISBN 9780593551325. $25. THRILLER
This twisty, pitch-dark story is the eighth book in the “Killer Instinct” series by Kepler, the pen name of husband and wife team Alexander and Alexandra Coelho Ahndoril. Detective Joona Linna is up against an elusive serial killer, who abducts young women and holds them imprisoned in a secluded place. Like every Kepler novel, this one begins with an explosive chapter that often entails graphic descriptions of horrendous violence and brutality, which is not for the faint of heart. The plot is dense with multiple POV narratives that quickens the pace. Yet, it is hard to distinguish and remember which character is speaking. The grisly depictions of torture were deadened by the narrator’s voice.
VERDICT Read this one instead of listening to it.
