THE E-MURDERER is a race to find a psychotic killer before he kills again.
On this anything but typical Monday morning Jenna Scali, who works part-time for a shrink, opens an email that depicts the brutal death of a young girl. On that same day the police uncover a dead coed two blocks from Jenna’s house. The e-murderer’s description creepily echos the death described in the newspapers.
When Jenna receives other emails, she takes what she knows to the police and thus begins her journey in the path of the e-murderer. Her curious nature impels her from e-messages to dead coeds to a ring of prostitutes. With the help of her quirky friends, Jenna learns that she’s more than a conduit for the killer. She’s his target. New secrets unfold, and finally her love life takes a tumble when the true killer emerges.

First book in series!
e-Murderer by Joan C. Curtis is the first book in A Jenna Scali Mystery series. Jenna Scali is the office manager (part-time) for psychiatrist, Dr. Niles Bingham as well as a PhD student. Jenna comes into work one day and is checking her email. Jenna gets a shock. The email tells about the death of a young woman. Jenna goes to Dr. Bingham but he believes it to be a hoax and tells her to ignore it. However, the police discover the body of Martha “Marty’ Meeks nearby. Then Jenna receives another email. Jenna takes the information to the police (which really angers her boss). Jenna keeps getting emails and then another person is killed (someone close to Marty). Jenna investigates the murders while the murderer gets closer to Jenna.
I wanted to like e-Murderer (it sounded like a good mystery novel). However, I found the novel to be dissatisfying. The mystery was so easy (I solved it right away). One of the problems was I did not like the main character, Jenna Scali. I found her behavior odd. I found Jenna to be very immature and for a psych student, sadly lacking in knowledge. I give e-Murderer 2.5 out of 5 stars. I think the basic idea was good, but the final product needed more work (a little rewriting and editing).
I received a complimentary copy of e-Murderer from NetGalley in exchange for an honest evaluation of the novel.
