When Death Draws Near (Review)

This review is for the book "When Death Draws Near" by Carrie Stuart Parks. This is one of her books involving the character Gwen Marcey. I had not read any other books by Parks before reading this one and I had no trouble following along or learning the characters. She did a great job with that.

In this novel, Gwen, a forensic artist, is asked to come to a small town in Kentucky to help solve a job of finding a serial rapist. While she is there she gains a second employment opportunity, going undercover in a local serpent-handling church. What follows is a spiderweb of figuring out the local politics, not knowing who to trust, and being threatened every way that Gwen turns.

By the last third of this book, I had a white-knuckle grip on the book and I couldn't have put it down if I tried. I was cringing. I was sweating. I was anxious. It was crazy! I haven't had a similar response to a mystery novel in so long I can't remember! I have GOT to read more by Parks in the future, especially her Gwen Marcey novels. I definitely recommend this book if you like a lot of suspense and details that will make you squirm.

Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
