"Eyes of the Predator", by Glenn Trust

The Pickham County Murders book 1

Eerie and extremely intense the story is definitely not for everyone. The plot although a fiction sounds quite realistic and I presume is based on cases and events that may have occurred in a City who has been rocked by the abduction and presumed murder of young women. This is a very dark story that paints a picture of abuse within a family and through the eyes of a killer gives insight into the predatory patterns of serial killers. Some passages are deeply disturbing and while sex may be part of the victimization of woman, the pleasure comes from a sadistic behavior….. Inflicting pain on victims is the predator’s primary motivations and we are taken deep in the dark mind of a sociopath.

The storyline in this captivating psychological thriller flows smoothly back and forth between the well-drawn characters: the victims, the predator, the by-standers and the police forces as they tell their side of the story. Even with all the gory details I found it hard to put the novel down. I guess I am an adrenaline junkie in some capacity…I was riveted by the intense action and the many twists encountered during the hunt to find both the abductor and victim. Not much is predictable and everything is neatly tied up by the end. “Eyes of a Predator” is well written, with simple language and his narrated in a sweet southern drawl of Southern Georgia. Excellent read.
