The Serial Killers Girl
published April 27, 2022
Does a killer’s blood run in the family?
Lexi Jakes thought she could run from her past.
But when her biological mother is found dead, strangled with a red silk scarf and holding a chess piece, Lexi knows that her worst nightmare has come true. Because the murder has all the hallmarks of her own serial killer father, renown strangler Peter Graves.
Now with her own precious daughter’s life in danger, Lexi will do anything to keep her child safe…she is her father’s daughter after all.
I always like books that deal with serial killers and their families and this one had a slightly different take than the ones I’ve read before. We have the daughter that has changed her name and grown up after her father’s arrest and the possibility of a copycat taking new lives. Throw in creepy chapters from the new killer’s perspective and why they are doing what they are doing, and I was left guessing who could possibly be the copycat. I suspected everyone but Lexi and was not really right until it was time for the reveal. I was a little disappointed with the reveal, but all things equal, I wanted to know who did it and didn’t guess. This was a quick read that moved right along.
