Perception of Death Book Review

 

Author: Louise Anderson
Genre: Crime Fiction
Rate: 2/5

 Erin Paterson, tough and independent woman, doesn’t usually open up. She doesn’t give her trust easily, mainly because of her profession as a compensation lawyer of the Paterson, Paterson and Co. firm. However, along her potent personality, there rests her vulnerability inside. 

       After the cruel murder of her sister’s old school friend, Erin’s life started to ramble. She faced a lot of personal issues which latter affected her career – She got cheated by her boyfriend which circulated on media quickly, besmirched her professional reputation on media, and lost her father’s firm.

       The police forces are chasing her seeking to get some lead to their successive investigation – of the brutal killings among women who have commonalities within:  intelligence, talent, and sophistication. But as they tried to solve the mysteries, they realized that… the serial killer was after for Erin’s life.

    I like the middle part of the story. It caught my interest to turn every page rapidly, waiting and predicting what to happen next. There are some instances that I felt I was on the story. I even got nervous when Erin was trying to decipher who’s the killer. I imagined the murderer trying to chase me.

    However, the ending falls short. It doesn’t sustain the flow of the story. There’s a lot of discrepancy on the ending and I believed the author could have pulled out a better ending. If she’d done a better flow on the middle of the story, I think given a time, she could make the ending better.   I believed the story deserved a better ending.

     Yet, I understand the author. This is her first novel. Perhaps after this book, she’d already learned a lot from writing crime fiction. I’m really not a fan of crime fiction novel but the title of the book, “Perception of Death”, caught me off-guard. I commend the author for the title. Though, it didn’t speak entirely on the novel, I think it’s enough teaser for the reader since a lot are afraid of the inevitable – death. 

      Though I rate this book a bit lower (as for my standard), this book deserved to be read.
