What I Read Wednesday – The Killing League by Dani Amore (Dan Ames)

The Killing League

This is another free book from the iBooks store.

The Killing League was a very different book. A group of serial killers are all contacted by one man, The Commissioner, to form the Killing League, a contest of sorts. He knows what they’ve been up to and if they compete, he won’t out them to the authorities.

Wallace Mack is a former FBI agent working to solve each serial killer’s crime spree. Years before, he saved a young woman from the clutches of yet another killer, drawing the hatred of The Commissioner. Now The Commissioner wants to make him pay by placing targets on the people he cares about for his competition.

Nicole Candela is the woman he saved, trying to piece her life back together after being a victim. She doesn’t know who beyond Mack she can trust and is constantly looking over her shoulder.

Each chapter is told from the perspective of someone different with an omniscient third person point of view. It has a very fast pace, each scene a little flash into the lives of Mack, Nicole, each serial killer, and each victim. You get a sense of dread whenever the book focuses on a new person because you just know something terrible is going to happen to them.

Overall it was a good read for something different, but it’s hard to get invested in the story with so many characters you don’t spend a lot of time with. If you like murder mysteries and true crime, you might enjoy this book.
