Primed to Kill

Primed to Kill, Kill Crime 2 A Jeff Case Novel: Making the World a Better Place, Removing One Serial Killer at a Time by [Mike Slavin]

Primed to kill is the second novel in eight-time award-winning author Mike Slavin´s Kill Crime series. Case is back at it! A year after witnessing the murders of people close to him and taking justice into his own hands, millionaire Jeff Case is pulled back into his mystery-solving life when his psychic friend and several others find themselves threatened by a serial killer. Case enlists his friends Trish and Bobby into the chase and they soon find that it’s not just one serial killer but a whole network of murderers who get off on photographing their victims led by sociopath, Harry Spike. And as the search expands through different cities, Case finds himself questioning whether he should continue his pursuit for justice or leave it to the authorities. As his endeavors continue, he realizes that everything is connected and the chase soon comes full circle.

This action-packed thriller is absolutely impossible to put down! Narrated from both the protagonist and the villain’s point of view, it makes it incredibly hard for the reader to decide who to root for. The characters are easy to follow and very well developed. Jeff Case, the hero, precise and confident, though a bit impulsive at times. Throughout the book he is forced to make morally reprehensible decisions for the sake of the investigation. On the other hand serial-killer Harry Spike is a deep and complex character, with violent behavior and a frighteningly charming personality that serves to make him even more dangerous. The easy to follow narration and two  main characters provide the reader with a riveting double-perspective and fast-paced storyline. The author also writes in a very detail-oriented style, leaving clues here and there for readers to find (or not), perfect for crime and mystery fans.

Where most mystery novels are usually black and white regarding the plot, with happy endings and unlikeable villains, author Mike Slavin creates a world where at certain instances the villain is humanized and the hero seems like the bad guy. All in all, this novel is riveting and I highly recommend it for its genius storytelling and complex plot.
