Seventeen gruesome killings across the United States, within a span of six months and there is one clear connection among victims. They were all writers.
While media is decorating the murders with sensationalist stories, and law enforcement is playing catch-up, the homicidal maniac remains elusive and secretive.
Things get very interesting, when one day she decides to appear on an internet talk show for an honest fireside chat.
It is a short story by Ryan Suvaal and I was offered a review copy of it.
I liked the premise being somewhat of Grammar Nazi myself. The story was too fast paced for my liking as in things were being pushed into one another. There was one murder and then all of a sudden there had been seventeen!
If I am reading about them, I want to read of them all in the book or at least the majority of it. Why else am I reading crime fiction?
Another thing I noted was the redundancy of words in the text. Sometimes that is bearable but if an author uses the tactic excessively, it just gives vibes as to the author taking the reader for a fool; and, I am no fool.
The story is set in future and is categorized as Science Fiction. As far a s the plot goes, both ideas seem redundant. Serial killers exist in today’s time and so does the dark net.
There were grammatical errors but I am chalking them up to the fact that it was, after all, a review copy and not the final version.
For a one time read, the short story is Okay.
