Review : The Butcher

The Butcher

Gallery Books
From Goodreads:A rash of grisly serial murders plagued Seattle until the infamous "Beacon Hill Butcher" was finally hunted down and killed by police chief Edward Shank in 1985. Now, some thirty years later, Shank, retired and widowed, is giving up his large rambling Victorian house to his grandson Matt, whom he helped raise.

Settling back into his childhood home and doing some renovations in the backyard to make the house feel like his own, Matt, a young up-and-coming chef and restaurateur, stumbles upon a locked crate he’s never seen before. Curious, he picks the padlock and makes a discovery so gruesome it will forever haunt him… Faced with this deep dark family secret, Matt must decide whether to keep what he knows buried in the past, go to the police, or take matters into his own hands.

Meanwhile Matt’s girlfriend, Sam, has always suspected that her mother was murdered by the Beacon Hill Butcher—two years after the supposed Butcher was gunned down. As she pursues leads that will prove her right, Sam heads right into the path of Matt’s terrible secret.
My Review: I would like to thank Netgalley and the publisher for a copy of this book for my honest review.
        Another amazing tale from Jennifer Hiller. I love everything about this book. The suspense, action, and the story. Jennifer Hiller keeps you riveted to your seat and afraid to move. Lover her writing style and fast paced stories with characters who are well developed and written. This is different in one way from her other stories I have read (you know who the murderer is in the first chapter),but I still could not put this book down. If Jennifer Hiller writes in the sand I want to be there to read it.
