I can’t say I read the first half of the book quickly, as the main characters actions were deeply disturbing. I kept having to put the book down , and pick it up later. The second half of the book was fascinating how the detectives worked their ways through the evidence. And the plot twists were not expected! Kudos to the author, for the way he made the characters connect, and truly made an exciting ending.
In LITTLE BOY BLUE a gifted, new voice describes the terror and truma that a twisted psyche can foist upon us...you, me, and those we love. DANIEL CONRAD ROSE, certain to be a bestselling author, takes us on am articulate journey into the mind of a fiend and the thought of those dedicated to protecting us from evil. A freightening truth is revealed, "The real monsters are among us." ROSE orchesstrates our emotions, wmpathy, and tears as we are assailed by unpeakable acts that consume the thoughts of those intent on stopping monsters. The story is one that needs to be told. It's one that's real. Evil is with us. ROSE telling combines excellent prose with compelling characters taht are sure to remain with you long after the last page is turned.
I didn’t want to continue reading but couldn’t let it go until I knew the ending.
I found this book to be intriguing and suspenseful. Once I started reading it I could not put it down. This book is easily in my top 3. The book is very engaging and I have recommended it to friends, family and co-workers. Great work Dan! Barb M.
Great book. Scary to think there are actually sick and cruel people like this out there for real. Makes you think and realize how difficult these types of cases can be for police to solve, especially if there is no cooperation or communication between various departments and government investigative agencies. Similar to "Helter Skelter" it reminded me of the importance of determination and having the right detective assigned to the case and how "luck" sometimes plays a definitive role in solving such crimes.
Hard to put down. Frightening and intreaguing from a law enforcement perspective. Very well written in the style of the old Joseph Wambaugh novels. Lots of twists and turns with thought provoking surprise ending.
Although this book is fiction it could very well be real. It is an investigation of a serial killer on the loose in in what could be your very own neighborhood. As in real life, the detective get close, but seem to always be a step away. All the while the perp continues to feed his sadistic appetite to torture and kill. One of those books you just can't put down and till you get to the end.
This book should be located in section labeled “Beyond Horror and Terror”. Rookie writer gets an A+ on enlightening the public as to the development and cunning mindset of a sociopath. Not meant for bedtime reading.
