A Piece of You: A Sami Rizzo Thriller by D.M. Annechino was by far my favorite book in the series. I think this was my favorite because I could see the things in this book actually happen. Because of the subject matter in book one, I wasn’t able to bring myself to read it but this one is 100% better than book two was. Even with this book being the third one in the series it can be read as a stand alone book but like I said before if want to read the whole series I would start with book one. I really enjoyed the serial killer in this book and to be honest, I am not sure why. I liked this book as well because I had a hard time figuring out the whole the killer was and I was interested as to why he was killing members of a certain family and not just random people. This book was well written like the other two books were and it is a story I would for sure read again because I enjoyed it that much. If you love thrillers I know you will enjoy this one as much as I did.
About The Book
Homicide Detective Sami Rizzo is at it again! She never dreamed “America’s Finest City,” would be tormented by yet another serial killer, but for the third time in the last five years a depraved maniac is stalking the streets of San Diego. Based on her qualifications and prior successes dealing with multiple murders, who else would Captain Davison assign to head the investigation?
Different from Sami’s past experiences, this fanatic is like no other. His methods of killing defy everything profilers think they know about serial killers. As an intense investigation begins and bits and pieces of evidence emerge, no one can understand his motivation. He’s merciful, yet brutal. And just to make things even more confusing, all of his victims are blood-related. Is he settling a vendetta? Did he randomly pick a name out of the phone book and begin a rampage? Or is there a deeper story?
Based on very little evidence and a lot of gut instincts, Detective Rizzo pieces together a complex puzzle and narrows the field of possible suspects. She learns that the killings may connect in some way to powerful people within the judicial system and doesn’t know who to trust. Ultimately, she comes face to face with the killer for a battle of brain and brawn. Can she outwit the shrewd killer, or will she be his next victim?
