The Diary of a Serial Killer’s Daughter by L.A. Detwiler is an Adult Thriller that is everything the title suggests!
“From the USA Today and International Bestselling author of The Widow Next Door comes a demented page-turner.
If you knew your father’s darkest secret, would you turn him in?
What if his secret was connected to you?
Ruby Marlowe’s always been a daddy’s girl. Her mother died when she was two, and her single father has ensured she has everything she needs. However, everyone has dark secrets, and Ruby’s father is no exception…
When she’s young, she doesn’t understand the weight of her father’s killing game. However, as she ages, she realizes her obsessive tendencies aren’t the only elements that separate her from her peers. After she begins to investigate her mother’s life and death, Ruby starts to believe there are some secrets even she doesn’t know about the serial killer she calls Daddy.
As her father’s killing grows rampant, the secrets get harder and harder to hide—and she fears it will all come crashing down. Will Ruby seek a different life for herself and betray the only person who has ever loved her, or will she get wrapped up in his sinister path?
A twisted page-turner that shines an eerie light on the father-daughter bond from the USA Today and International Bestseller L.A. Detwiler. ”
Wow.. this book..
If you are interested in stories following serial killers and the crazy, mind-boggling worlds they see themselves in, you NEED to read this thriller!
We follow the main character who starts out as a young girl who’s father has more secrets than she ever realized.
This is told in the form of diary entries which escalate as she grows older. It’s the perfect inside scoop on how an environment forms a person’s personality from such a young age. The author does a tremendous job in exploring the mindset of not only someone in that situation but of a growing child year after year.
It has everything that I would love to see formed into a movie, and the psychological bond the characters have just blows me away. This book is such a different take than we typically see in this genre.
A 5 out of 5 star thriller if there ever was one!
