Powerful and Compelling
The second installment in Elle Klass' Ruthless Storm Trilogy can only be described as compelling and masterful. The author weaves the development of Evan O'Connor's abusive childhood into a nuanced analysis of his psychopathic penchant for murder sprees in adulthood. Evan's insanity includes using astrological signs as well as meteorological events to plan and carry out the most gruesome acts of terror. It's up to detective Alice Burkhalder to discover who would feel motivated to commit murders during the course of a powerful hurricane. Deaths that, at first, appear to be the result of acts of nature in the town of Billows Hollow turn out to be chilling calling cards that have been left by the perpetrator. Don't miss the second book in this amazing series. Top notch writing!
