Product Description

I am a monster.
I am evil.
I've done things that would shock the toughest cops.
I've done things that will send me straight to hell and put Satan to shame.
I've done things that I shouldn't have enjoyed, but relished.
I've loved every single second of it.
I don't know the meaning of the word regret.
Why regret doing what needs to be done?
They had to die.

I am a monster.
I am evil.
I am unstoppable.
I am Helltown's worst nightmare.
This is who I truly am.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 twisted stars for this horrific read 26 July 2016
By Susan Scott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Meet Detective Simon Barnes who has been a police officer for 15 years. He had a fiancé, a solid job and a recently changed partner at work.

The bond between him and Harper (new partner) is brilliant actually. I felt like I grew with their relationship and loved the bond that they shared despite their short time at working with one another. Who says death doesn't bring people closer together?!

But with a serial killer on the loose and some of the most stomach churning, seriously twisted and graphic beyond words scenes I swear you need to have a strong stomach for this book!

Every chapter had a new scene more perverse than the others and having only read a romance from this author I was blown away at the authors ability to write so completely differently from what I thought about her work.

Needless to say as the murders progress and the body count increases, so does the pressure for them to find their murdered. But what is they are missing?

Excerpt:
I'm not a dangerous person. I'm just a normal man with a normal life who happens to finish things that were supposed to be completed a long time ago. I don't see anything wrong with that....

Bloody brilliant, stomach turning, horror filled book I think I've ever read.
When I gave my feedback to the author I specially told her it was like Stephen King on drugs LOL. Takes dark to a whole new level! Highly recommended to those of you dark and horror lovers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five Big Creeptastic Stars 26 July 2016
By therealslimkatie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I have a longstanding, twisted love affair with murder mysteries and thrillers. I love when an author is able to keep me on the edge of my seat and I'm left guessing and obsessing over the tiniest details as I lie awake in bed each night, struggling not to return to a story. I love when I have to cover the bottom of the page with my hand I'm on so I don't "cheat read" and skip ahead, my brain hoping to sneak that one word that will blow the whole story wide open two lines further down the page.
However, once you read enough, that part starts to fade and plot twists aren't quite as exciting anymore.
Until you find something new.
This was my something new. I loved this book. I sat on the edge of my seat reading this book. I lied awake pondering motives while reading this book. I stared at my kindle, forcing myself to sleep wanting to finish this book. I wanted so badly to "cheat read" this book.
And then it was over and all I want in my whole life right now is to get my hands on book two.
This book is awesome, but I must warn you, it's nothing like Garcia's other work. If you're looking for hearts and flowers, read one of her other titles. The late night promises this book has to offer are not the kind you're used to from this author, *wink wink* That being said, if you want a book that will keep you guessing and make you question the sanity of the person who penned it, this is the book for you.
Five big creeptastic stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark, Gritty and suspenseful. 26 July 2016
By Nikki Costello - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I received a complimentary copy of this book through Crazy Cajun Book Addicts for an honest review. 

Right I'm not entirely sure where to start with this review. Victims by Muriel Garcia is a dark, gritty and suspenseful thriller that will hold your attention until the very end, and then some. 

It follows the story of a killer who believes that by choosing and killing his victims he is finishing a job that had already been started as each victim has already escaped death at some time in their lives.

Detective's Barnes and McKenzie are given the task of trying to bring the killer to justice but he seems to be one step ahead everytime evading them at every stop.

Some parts I found were a little difficult read but this is the first thriller I have read in a long time and it definitely lived up to its name it's brilliantly written and you could tell that a lot of research has gone in to this book. Muriel Garcia has written a book that will stay with me for a long time to come and it's a definite 5 Stars from me.
4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Thiller 8 August 2016
By Sharon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
3.5 to 4 stars

This is one of those books that leaves me conflicted when it is over. Let me state upfront that Victims2 is not a romance novel it is strictly a whodunit, thriller. For me, that isn’t a negative because I love a good murder mystery. There are a lot of positives with only a few negatives in my opinion. The story compares favorably to a good Criminal Minds episode. There is a sick serial murderer. We get in his mind, not from the behavioral profile team but from the murder’s thoughts and revelations.

The book is well written. Muriel Garcia does an excellent job of peeling off the many layers of sickness in the mind of “The Helltown Reaper” as the news dubs him. For most of the book, my stomach rolls, and my heart beat faster, in anticipation of what happens next.

The new partners of Detective Barnes, the senior member of the team, and Detective McKenzie the junior member are figuring out how to work together. There are issues they need to resolve from the beginning because Detective Barnes is paired with McKenzie after his longtime partner is killed in the line of duty. He is grieving. Also, McKenzie is a female and the long hours together, searching for a serial killer is hard enough on a relationship but throw in a female partner sharing those hours has the potential for the green monster to appear.

Some very fascinating twists make me shudder. This is a dark, gritty, criminal and his actions are sick. He believes he is making his victims pay for wrongs that they escaped punishment in the past. The author does a good job convincing me the procedures that the detectives, lab techs, ME, etc. follow are believable and necessary to catch the sicko. Now we get to the point where I’m conflicted. There are several places that I had to do the hand wave because the situation is a little far-fetched, but it isn’t enough of a leap to take away for the story.

I went into this story realizing it is a series. I didn’t understand, in this series, the culprit doesn’t get caught. I’m not a cliffhanger fan, as most know. I get that many of my favorite TV shows have serial murderers that take a season or more to wrap-up. I don’t have a problem with that because I know from the start that I can DVR those shows and watch them consecutively, or more often, I know it is only a week, or three months until my next fix. Getting to the end of this book made me angry. I have never read a procedural that left me hanging. For this reason, and this reason alone I deducted a star immediately.

In the end, I can say that Muriel Garcia has an interesting mind. She weaves a gripping story with Victims2 that holds the reader’s attention from the beginning to end. I look forward to reading more from her, and I will be aware that she doesn’t have a problem leaving the reader hanging. Good job!

ARC received for an honest review.
3.0 out of 5 stars Silent Killer 27 July 2016
By HeadTripping Books - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Serial Killer Mystery

We have two detectives trying to solve a series of murders by The Helltown's Reaper that mimic a serial killer of the past. The Drownsman.
The current killer speaks to the reader in the first person. If you were to take away the letter "i" from this story you would lose a significant word count. He's the type of evil villain that loves to monologue. The head detective also shares his thoughts with the reader frequently throughout the story.
"If you take the time to think about life and death, You’ll realize that we’re all slowly dying. From the moment we’re born, Our lives are merely spent occupying ourselves Whilst trying to delay or avoid the inevitable: Death. We’re all heading to the same destination We just take different paths that will all lead us To the Reaper. What if I am the reaper? Would you welcome me? Would you run from me? Would you fear me?"
The story is very melodramatic in its delivery. The murders are detailed step by step and nothing is left to the reader's imagination. This is one of the reasons why the story is a bit campy and not scary or truly suspenseful. This book could be a lot of fun for lovers of camp. The silent killer in this tale for me was boredom. Sometimes things can be spelled out just a little too much. In this case an attempt to be mysterious is instead transparent. I often found myself frustrated while reading this story. There is a real disconnect. The story just did not come to life for me in the ways I was hoping for.
