Book Review: All His Pretty Girls

Detective Alyssa Wyatt is hunting a serial killer. She doesn’t know that he’s hunting her.
A woman is found naked, badly beaten and barely alive in the New Mexico mountains. The shocking discovery plunges Albuquerque Detective Alyssa Wyatt into a case that will test her to the limit.
It appears that Callie McCormick is the latest plaything of a shadowy psychopath that leaves a long shadow on the streets of New Mexico – an individual linked to a string of deaths but leaving no evidence.
But when Alyssa makes a breakthrough that just might reveal the killer, she unknowingly puts herself in the crosshairs of a brutal maniac – one with an old score to settle.
Because the killer knows Alyssa very well, even if she doesn’t know him. And he’s determined that she’ll know his name – even if he has to extract his deadly revenge on her and everything she loves.

I received a digital advanced reader copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This was such a creepy and dark story. I was hooked on page one and couldn’t wait to dive deep into the story. Cox’s writing style is absolutely wonderfully descriptive in such a dark way. The story line was strong and well developed through the entire book and the story flowed very well. 

Of all the mystery/thriller books I have read, this is the first time I’ve really hoped gets a sequel. I could easily see this extending way past this first book. I am anticipating the author letting us know we might get more to this story (please.. Pretty please?) 

I loved Alyssa’s character. She was flawed but incredibly relatable and really easy to connect with. All the relationships in this book seemed very authentic and genuine. The backstories were well thought out and easily connected to each character. 

The overall pace of this book was great. It was fast paced and didn’t drag along at all. There were so many twists and turns and it just really keeps you guessing. If you want a good police procedural mystery thriller…. This book is for you! 

Thank you to Charley Cox, Hera Books, and NetGalley for allowing me to review this title.  Order your copy from retailers today!
