    Ahhh2 or 3 stars, that is the question When I think about this book as a whole, it did not work for me But.if I break it down into smaller parts, I can always appreciate something What I did like was the MC She was unique I also didn t mind that this wasn t really a whodunit because you know who the antagonist is and who is helper is The biggest turn off was that the Shock Awe campaign outweighed the plot and the character development It provided many Ewww moments and not enough Aha moments The characters weren t ones I could like, let alone root for Karin Slaughter tends to lean heavy on the violent side when it comes to women, just like this book, but her characters are strong and easy to like I need something like that to keep me in, and I couldn t find that here So I guess 2 stars it is.

    The bodies are found in towns and cities around Puget Sound The young women who are the victims had nothing in commonexcept the agony of their final moments But somebody carefully chose them to stalk, capture, and tortured depraved killer whose cunning is matched only by the depth of his bloodlust But the dying has only just begun And the next victim will be the most shocking of all One of the very first things that attracted me to Gregg Olsen s Victim Six book was undoubtedly the jacket cover A solitary man stands resolute, peering over a wide expanse of water, a deep and inviting body of tranquil water that draws you in as if your very life depended on it A chilling fog is rising slowly over the lake giving the book a haunting and eerily hypnotic appearance, all this before I d read the very first page All I wanted to do was run to the very edge of the small wooden jetty and jump in I announced to the twitter world that I wanted to do just that but when author Gregg Olsen replied with a simplistic Don t do it I should have realised there and then I was in for a scary ride The problem is I didn t listen and I jumped into the book with both feet Victim Six is wrong in so many ways, in parts it made me catch my breath, shudder, shake my head and wonder how on earth a serial killer as depraved and unhinged as this could exist It made me question not only Olsen s sanity but how an author could come up with something as imaginative, brutal, perverse and downright wrong yet so right This book isn t for the fainthearted but one thing I will guarantee is that when you reach the ending it will leave you thoroughly exhausted The narrative is shockingly good, some may say arresting it flows well and apart from the crippling torture scenes and a distinct lack of human compassion shown by the killer that forces you to take stock, it moves effortlessly along until its intriguing d nouement that leaves you, the reader, with one very big question As I ve already alluded to, Olsen somehow manages to capture the essence of a serial killer and as he switches the story from the hunted to the hunters in the guise of detectives Kendall Stark and Josh Anderson the change is palpable and immediate.Adding a little light to the proceedings is Kendall Stark as the main protagonist I found her believable and appealing She plays the dual role of a doting mother who cares deeply for her autistic son and a compassionate detective hell bent on tracking down the person responsible for a spate of deaths in Washington State s Puget Sound With the discovery of each fresh victim and I use that term loosely the pressure begins to take its toll and mistakes are made by those investigating and reporting the crimes There s an intensity in this book that gradually develops, slowly at first, but once it starts moving there s no stopping it As far as Josh Anderson is concerned the jury is still out I m not sure what to make of his character he showed a certain naivety throughout and made a number of mistakes that could have been avoided That said the pair work well together as characters and just like the serial killer s desire to progress their partnership has depth.Victim Six is an adult themed crime novel, there are parts that will make you squirm and some scenes that will make you laugh although they are few and far between This is an incredibly dark thriller that leaves very little to the imagination you leave all that to Gregg Olsen and his wonderful prose One thing I would advise is sleeping with the lights on just for the first night for any sound will feed your fraught senses and have you up all night Realistic, imaginative, terrifying and tense, Victim Six is one of those books you ll want to read with one eye closed and the other eye squinting one page at a time while seriously wishing you had a third eye in the back of your head to ward off any attackers Gregg Olsen is one to watch Highly recommended.

    Victim Six by Gregg Olsen was a very interesting read it was like no other book I have ever read General thoughts Not a book for everyone Very sadistic, violent, egotistical, no respect for women antagonist Multiple sexual situations or references to sexual situations non consensual, rape, torture, necrophilia Words that come to mind when thinking about this book grizzly, vile, cruel, hateful, insensitive, sadistic, dark, bleak, abusive, twisted, lack of human compassion No support from outside of the town law enforcement agencies for assistance in finding a serial killer Leading, investigating officer Kendell has a challenging home life, amazing she can work this case with its heavy emotional toll I didn t like the female supporting cast petty, egotistical, some were just TSTL view spoiler to stupid to live hide spoiler

    This is one of those murder mysteries that stays with you I m not talking about being so incredibly good but rather it was in the disturbing sense While I ve come to expect some amount of horror while reading murder myseries I was not expecting the graphic nature or deviant behavior that was described Not one of Mr Olsen s better novels.

    There wasn t really much mystery to this book It seemed to be pretty much about the shock factor than anything else The main charachters weren t at all likeable and much of the detail and people included at times were unnexcesary and confusing.

    I very rarely give five stars to books on here because its listed as it was amazing and usually i list the book for what i think it was good or really good Well, this book definitely deserved 5 stars The writing is amazing, I must admit though when i first started reading i was a little confused because it would switch point of views from the characters and it threw me off but i got used to it once i realized what was going on And now that i ve finished i loved that it was written that way The part that really gets you into it is how in depth the details of the murder victims is and reading how the family of the killer is It s very twisted but that s what makes it so good You just sit there and think who would do that or even write about it because it s not something you think people would do Gregg Olsen is now one of my favorite authors I used to read nothing but teenage love story stuff but i decided to branch out and read other things, i m so glad i did because if not i would have never come across this book.Victim Six is a story told from multiple points of view Sometimes written from the detectives view, the reporters view, the killers view, and the victims view Girls are going missing and finally are being made a connection for serial killing The girls don t have much in common and the killer is very careful so the detectives hardly get anywhere on the case, of course in the end there is one little thing that gives it away and a few other things that tie it all together You ll love reading the details of what the killer is doing to the girls, the autopsy reports, the calls the killer makes to the reporter and believe it or not in some ways you wont want him or her to get caught because its just so good My only complaint is that i felt like the ending was too short for what built up to it, but at the same way i can t imagine it ending any other way I m definitely going to be reading all the other books by Gregg Olsen, as i said. i ve found a new favorite.

    Started May 30th, 2013.Not too bad, but at least one glaring mistake in the storyline the reporter agrees early on that her phone can be tapped for recording the calls by the police without approval of her editor and without telling him That is not followed up and given the setup it would have helped and solved the case much earlier.Ending not too convincing, was mostly what I expected early on.Could have been a bit tighter, sometimes the side roles where too long explained in the text.

    What a page turner Wow, I started reading this late last night and couldn t put it down until 3 am, and by then I was freaked out and couldn t even sleep ha Gregg Olsen did it again He wrote a book filled with characters I liked and a plot that kept me scrambling for It was like a glimpse into the mind of a mad man, and a glimpse into the minds of the victims and the detectives A great book I will be recommending to everyone who enjoys crime and mystery stories.

    I like most of Mr Olsen s fiction works and I will give them a fair unbias five stars the only thing I didn t like, but won t remove a star for, is when he decided to make it known who the killer was Why he did this is beyond mehopefully Mr Olsen will read this and maybe help me understand this tactic All I know is that in the end, I can t wait for Mr Olsen s next book WOO
