    My thoughts This was a typical serial killer story with nothing special to help it stand it This was a quick read that was well written and entertaining, but I felt it was fairly predictable I thought Jade presented as pretty slow to pick up on clues and rather clueless overall, as did her lieutenant Her partner and some of the other team members came off as smarter, but overall the whole department was pretty inadequate.I read this as a Buddy Read, which made itinteresting, but I doubt My thoughts This was a typical serial killer story with nothing special to help it stand it This was a quick read that was well written and entertaining, but I felt it was fairly predictable I thought Jade presented as pretty slow to pick up on clues and rather clueless overall, as did her lieutenant Her partner and some of the other team members came off as smarter, but overall the whole department was pretty inadequate.I read this as a Buddy Read, which made itinteresting, but I doubt I ll read anyin the series.Recommend Not really, but I seem to be in the minority on my opinion.My Rating 2 sPublished August 14th 2016 by C.M Sutter Pages 311Book Blurb Sleepy little North Bend just woke up The newly promoted Sergeant Jade Monroe, and her partner, Detective Jack Steele, have just been informed of an unidentified male body found at a local lake The town is in an uproar The victim was nearly decapitated, and murder simply doesn t happen in North Bend Asbodies turn up, the single connection between all of the victims becomes clear it s Jade, herself With each new victim getting one step closer to Jade, time begins to tick away She must find the person responsible before her loved ones, or herself, are targeted next

Maniacal Detec Review This is the first book in the Jade Monroe series I have never read anything by this author before And to sum up my thoughts on this book, I am not overly hyped to start reading anything else by her The writing style itself is okay It was something easy to follow but wasn t overly intelligent I am someone that when I read crime thrillers I want to actually have to think hard and learn from This is currently free onKindle 06 23 2020https www. Maniacal Detec Review This is the first book in the Jade Monroe series I have never read anything by this author before And to sum up my thoughts on this book, I am not overly hyped to start reading anything else by her The writing style itself is okay It was something easy to follow but wasn t overly intelligent I am someone that when I read crime thrillers I want to actually have to think hard and learn from what I am reading This book didn t provide that to me I figured out the identity of the killer less then half way through the book.The psychopath killer, DIME, was the only aspect of the book that was somewhat enjoyable I liked the scenes that showed how he set up the kill and then the actually murder taking place They were interesting to see and get a taste of the killer s mind set Now for the other aspect of this story which was for the actual policing, it wasn t good at all To me, it felt as though the author didn t do any research into how a Crime lab or Police Department functions The way the detectives interreacted with each other on a daily basis and how they were trying to solve the crime and the horrible cop lingo was just very jarring The detectives were not very smart on how they approached clues or lack there of and it took them forever to ask the most simplest of questions during an investigation Something else that bothered me was the author kept throwing in side character names that meant nothing and didn t contribute anything to the story line And just as quickly as they were mentioned they were gone The side characters that were actually in the story and had actual scenes didn t help out at all with providing background to the main characters or give the reader any other insight into helping to figure out the crime Lastly, the ending was very underwhelming Not only had I figured out who the killer was before I was halfway through the story but the actual climax of the finale was over before it even started It was liking flipping a light switch on in a dark lit room The slightest tension is there for a millisecond and then POOF the light switch is on and all is right with the world I read this as a buddy read which helped me trudge through the story a little bit , otherwise this would have been a DNF The only reason that this isn t getting a one star is because the scenes with the killer were actually not bad and held my interest for a split second to help me continue on with the story I have no intention on continuing with this series and I cannot say that I would recommend this

    Another serial killer novel How exciting Right up there with a root canal.All the standard elements are here, meaning this book is just a clone of every other serial killer book ever written At least Sutter didn t fall into the trope of having the killer commit the most moronic mistake possible, thus making it possible for even a blind man to see who he was but did, on the other hand, have Jade and her partner experience an Ahamoment where they realized who the killer might be around page 2 Another serial killer novel How exciting Right up there with a root canal.All the standard elements are here, meaning this book is just a clone of every other serial killer book ever written At least Sutter didn t fall into the trope of having the killer commit the most moronic mistake possible, thus making it possible for even a blind man to see who he was but did, on the other hand, have Jade and her partner experience an Ahamoment where they realized who the killer might be around page 275 of this 300 page book I figured it out somewhere around page 100.Sutter tends to write very basic sentences and to over explain things like what Jade does to start a pot of coffee brewing The writing felt stilted in many places, the sentences identical in structure to where they formed a rhythm It wasn t an engaging one but a monotonous one.Had Sutter not started her series off with a serial killer novel, I might consider readingof her books Because she did, I won t be back forJade Monroe adventures

    I enjoyed this book The characters were interesting and believable The pace of the book was steady and kept your interest throughout The author gave the right amount of detail in the story, without bogging down the story with minutia I thought the author also kept the identity of the killer hidden well until the closing of the book I recommend this book for anyone that enjoys criminal.

    Well, I do love a good tale about a demented psychopathic serial killer and this one has a doozy The maniac has a gruesome way of murdering his victims and though it s fairly graphic, the author doesn t dwell on the details so that it becomes violence porn It s never disgusting just creepy and eerie and very unpleasant to think about.The characters in what appears to be the beginning of a series are engagingclever, intelligent and thoughtful The writing style is clean and effortless Well, I do love a good tale about a demented psychopathic serial killer and this one has a doozy The maniac has a gruesome way of murdering his victims and though it s fairly graphic, the author doesn t dwell on the details so that it becomes violence porn It s never disgusting just creepy and eerie and very unpleasant to think about.The characters in what appears to be the beginning of a series are engagingclever, intelligent and thoughtful The writing style is clean and effortless I enjoy lean writing in a thriller, where pacing can add to the excitement, and too many words can water it down The discovery of the killer s identity was a complete surprise to me I didn t see it coming, and it was all theenjoyable for that I don t like it when I figure out who dunnit halfway through a book.This is a one sitting read A rainy night, a box of cookies, a bottle of sherry, and Maniacal will make for a fun 3 or 4 hours

    Missed the target There are plenty of characters in this one and loads of procedural detail The plot is simple enough to follow, but I found the extra layers of people and descriptions too confusing It s an easy read, and will occupy a few hours on a long flight, but I never fully engaged with Jade Monroe to the extent that I would wish to follow her stories through a series.

    C.M Sutter might just be a nice find This was a pretty standard serial killer story but the characters were solid, engaging and likable She s got quite a few books out there in several series and I m going to give them a shot Jade and her sister seem to have plenty stories left It s nice to have them located close to my home Familiarity of location works well for me Sutter has a Chicago based series as well Good stuff

    The use of POV was odd There were times that it felt as if the heroine was addressing the reader directly even though she wasn t Very strange I think this story could have benefitted from being told in the third person.Overall it was pleasant and easy which is kind of a disappointment when reading a book titled Maniacal that is about catching a serial killer Maybe I m just being a jaded bitch IDK.
