Daily Review: Body of the Crime by Jennifer Chase

Body of the Crime
By Andrea Davis
The amount of detail the author is able to include made this novel especially authentic.
Body of the Crime offers chilling insight into the mind of a demented serial killer. With elements of horror throughout, this novel will keep you right on the edge of your seat until the very end. The author has a commanding style that is both sensitive to the characters, but also to the reader.
The pacing is amazing and I found myself eagerly turning each page to get a step closer to the killer, hoping the detectives would find the next clue or learn a new lead. It is clear the author has done the research there is a clear knowledge of how investigations are carried out. The author also highlights the political aspects of a case as well as the procedural ones.
We’ve got a DA who is pressured by the media and so on, and that pressure and urgency trickles all the way down to the detectives working the case.
The characters are excellent, Chip Palmer is a brilliant with forensics and brings his keen insights and experiences to the table. Kate is a brave, cunning detective who will stop short of nothing to catch the murderer.
The amount of detail the author is able to include made this novel especially authentic and gave it a genuine, honest feel. I loved this crime caper and highly recommend it!
