BEFORE CAIN STRIKES by Joshua Corin
I like books with serial killers and the agents that are trying to catch them. But this one was a chore to get through. I liked Esme well enough but she didn't strike me as some kind of superagent the FBI would need to call in. Her husband is a jerk. Her father-n-law lives with them and berates her constantly. I just didn't connect with any of the characters. Part of the story is told through Cain, but he isn't developed very well. This appears to be the second book in the series but I don't think I needed to read it to enjoy this one better.
It wasn't very well-written and the ending left me unsatisfied.
my rating 2/5
