Review of “A Life Removed”, by James Parent @HGRomanceDeals

Wow, what a story! This story was full of feels and horror for me. I enjoyed the book, but found myself making faces at times. It is a well written crime thriller. The characters are very well formed and they pull you into the story completely.

A small town in Massachusetts is being terrorized by a killer who is brutal and very organized. The police are stumped and have no leads as to who the killer is. A well seasoned detective and a young detective are partnered to investigate and they work very well together, even though most of the precinct does not want to work with the seasoned detective, Bruce Marklin. He is a detective who has seen too much death, but his mind works like a computer and he is very good at what he does. There are few cases that he works on that are solved. This case is a challenge for him and his partner, Jocelyn Beaudette is also good at her job and she has a lot of barriers to overcome since she is a woman, a mom, and a young detective.

Aaron Pimental is a street cop who is not happy with his job, and has struggled with depression since he was a teen. Can he make his life have meaning and find anything in his job to make him happy? It seems as though his life is just a big screw up. He tries, but everything is against him.

I read this book in one day, it was too good to put down. It drew me in from the first page and kept my interest throughout the entire story. It did leave me with a few questions though. If you like a book to draw you in and keeps you turning the pages until the end, then you should read this book. I give this book a 5 star review.
