“Only a monster can do bad things for the right reasons.”

A Time For Monsters By Gareth Worthington

A Nordic thriller in the vein of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo meets Death Wish, in which a female serial killer, who only feels emotion when listening to music, is hell-bent on revenge and must outwit a disgraced detective determined to redeem himself if she is to complete her carefully orchestrated plan and cover up the ultimate secret.

Do you remember the first tape or CD you ever bought? Perhaps you waited for the local station to play the top forty songs on a Sunday so you could record your favorite band. Maybe you downloaded a certain track that reminded you of your wedding day or a graduation.

Reyna Blackburn remembers.

Every single song for every horrific event in her life. She remembers what song was playing on the radio the first time he hurt her. And she remembers what was playing through her headphones the first time she killed.

My Review

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book!! Vigilante justice served up in the form of serial killings by a woman. Rey grew up in a family where her dad was abusive to her mom. Music was her way of expressing her feelings. She decides to devise a plan to kill abusive men who ruined a woman/child’s life. She ends up getting hit by a car – driven by the detective on the serial killer case. He also just happens to have a darker past, where he once hit his wife. Will Rey add him to the list, or will he catch her first?

A thrilling ride with plot twists that blew my mind. I love how the author integrated his own “playlist” that went very well with emotions Rey was feeling. The characters are well rounded and believable. The pacing is fast, you need to know what happens next. The ending left me with a few questions, but I think that’s what the author was going for. Solid thriller!

Huge thanks to Jean Book Nerd Tours for my gifted copy in exchange for my honest review!
