BOOK & AUTHOR INFO:
Riker’s Calling by Rico Lamoureux
Publication date: August 4th 2016
Genres: Crime, Suspense
From school bullies to the crime-ridden streets of his hometown of Los Angeles, Jeremy Riker has always felt the need to do something about the injustice surrounding him. Just as he sets out on his journey as an urban warrior, he unknowingly gives rise to an obsessive adversary, who ends up becoming one of the most notorious serial killers the city has ever known. Dubbed by the news media as The Spyderco Killer, the methodical psychopath roots himself deep into Riker’s life for the long haul, until his own madness propels everything into an intense climax.
You know, for a short-ish book, this certainly packs an awful lot between the covers.
Told from a dual point of view, this story becomes all the more interesting as the reader gradually becomes aware of the identity of the perpetrator.
The plot line is reasonably straightforward, and that concentrated approach to the story telling really keeps the reader’s interest throughout.
If you like short, punchy crime thrillers, then you could do worse than to add this to your TBR list.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
Rico Lamoureux considers himself a dramatist. He believes too much emphasis is put on genre nowadays, and not enough on actual story. From Historical Fiction to Contemporary Romance. From shocking Horror to edge-of-your-page Thrillers. A great story transcends genre, with dramatic elements being the utmost of importance.
