You Can Run by Steve Mosby

“Monsters are made, not born, and the truth is that they can be made anywhere.”

The Monster has never been present when the women have died, so he has no idea how long it takes.  He’s done with them by then, so what does it matter?

The Worm is incapable of killing for himself, he’s spent years enjoying the Monster’s actions from a distance.

The Writer is racked with guilt about all the terrible things he’s done to the person he loves.

The Detective believes in pareidolia, a psychological phenomenon in which the mind responds to a stimulus, usually an image or a sound, by perceiving a familiar pattern where none exists.  His instincts are telling him that there is a connection between them, but how do they all add up to the Red River Killer?

This is one of the best thrillers I have read in a long time.  Mosby pulls you in by thinking you know who the killer is and then he adds a new twist that keeps you guessing.  A refreshing story that renewed my faith in a great read!

Steve Mosby is the author of three previous novels, The Murder Code, The Nightmare Place, and The Reckoning on Cane Hill, all available from Pegasus Crime.

Thank you to Mr. Mosby, Pegasus Books and NetGalley for giving me the opportunity to review this book!
