All His Pretty Girls by Charly Cox
Running parallel to this sadistic killer’s antics, (which is akin to a horror story) we learn about Alyssa Wyatt who became a cop because of how her little brother Timmy got kidnapped and killed by someone they never caught when she was just nine years old herself. In an effort to relieve herself from some pain that she spent blaming herself for his death throughout her childhood and even now as an adult, she became a cop making it her mission to save others in a way that she couldn’t for own own brother – who still to this day – she loves and mourns for.
Now someone is killing women who for some reason all look similar to Alyssa, and as we delve deeper into her family and home life it soon becomes apparent that none of that is safe. Someone is out to ruin her life, but who?
Although I don’t think the jaw-dropping killer twist was really that shocking (the clues are blatantly obvious when we read the killer’s story and thoughts) I still found this to be one of the most exciting crime books I’ve read in a long while! However, if you missed the clues then the final reveal will indeed shock you. But what I found even more interesting is not how this book ended, but how it got me thinking after I finished the book. How the hell would anyone think, feel and cope if they were Alyssa? That for me, was the true ending of this story – and not until you’ve reached the very end of the book will you understand what I mean…
Thanks to NetGalley, Sarah from BOTBSPublicity, and Hera Books for this opportunity to read the ARC of #AllHisPrettyGirls. This is my honest review. I loved this book!
All His Pretty Girls: An absolutely gripping detective novel with a jaw-dropping killer twist by Charly Cox
Detective Alyssa Wyatt is hunting a serial killer.
She doesn’t know that he’s hunting her.
A woman is found naked, badly beaten and barely alive in the New Mexico mountains. The shocking discovery plunges Albuquerque Detective Alyssa Wyatt into a case that will test her to the limit.
It appears that Callie McCormick is the latest plaything of a shadowy psychopath that leaves a long shadow on the streets of New Mexico – an individual linked to a string of deaths but leaving no evidence.
But when Alyssa makes a breakthrough that just might reveal the killer, she unknowingly puts herself in the crosshairs of a brutal maniac – one with an old score to settle.
Because the killer knows Alyssa very well, even if she doesn’t know him. And he’s determined that she’ll know his name – even if he has to extract his deadly revenge on her and everything she loves.
The launch of a dark, gripping, completely unputdownable crime thriller series, All His Pretty Girls introduces Albuquerque detective Alyssa Wyatt. Fans of Kendra Elliot, Melinda Leigh and Angela Marsons will be utterly engrossed.
