Slaughtered by K.A. Lugo-Goddess Fish Promo Tour-Review/Giveaway

About the book 
The Texter 

Fallen homicide detective, Jack Slaughter, closes the door on the home where his perfect family has been brutally snatched from him. Moving across the city, he works as a private investigator to fund his own investigation into what happened to his family—who killed his little girl, Zoë, and where is his wife, Leah? 

Every three month for the last three years, Jack receives a simple text telling him where he can find his missing wife. There’s a body at each location, but none of them are Leah. 

Jack hates missing person’s cases, but they’re his bread and butter. He only takes the case to find Carl Boyd's missing wife because the details of her disappearance closely match Leah’s. He hopes by finding Bonnie Boyd, he'll find his own wife. 

The Butcher 

Following the leads in the Bonnie Boyd case, Jack discovers someone has been killing women all over the city for the last three years, a fact Jack’s ex-partner and still best friend, Ray Navarro, has neglected to tell him. The city has a serial killer and officials haven’t been able to find a single lead on the person they’ve dubbed The Butcher. 

Could Bonnie Boyd’s disappearance be linked to The Butcher? More important, was Leah one of The Butcher’s victims? Could he have gone so far as to murder a child? 

With every clue Jack weaves together, the more his own life unravels.

And I thought
This is one that 'had me' at the cover.  And then I read the synopsis!

I really enjoyed this fast past thrilling suspenseful story.

This one may not be for the faint of heart as the crime(s) are a bit creepy (not graphic)  But, that just makes a good thriller. 

There was a part that was a bit confusing when Jack begins investigating the disappearance of Bonnie Boyd.  He takes the case because her disappearance is very similar to his wife's. 

I was thinking Hmm right along with Jack but then I had a bit of an inside track because I had read the synopsis.  

As Jack follows a few leads and pulls in some favors from past associates he ends up investigating the deaths of a number of women and it all seems to lead back to his wife's disappearance. 

Another Hmm.  Right?  We'll see.  I am not giving anything away.

There are a few characters in the book Jacks x-partner Ray who is still a good friend,  Ray's current partner who seems to be a jerk 
every time Jack is around and a few others that just kind of 
disappear into the story.  Probably because Jack is well he's just Jack all hunkiness broody and grieving and all around a character to capture your attention. 

And capture you he does as he ferrets out the facts solves the crimes and then saves a few lives tying up loose ends and all is well.  A Happy Ending.  And, a clue to a juicy tidbit that has the reader waiting for the next Jack Slaughter Thriller. 

I received a complimentary copy.
