Book Description (via Goodreads): I Can Kill, and You Can’t Catch Me… These were the last words The Carnations Killer said to FBI Special Agent Aidan O’Reilly ten years ago before he went into hiding. He has tortured and murdered fifty women since then and managed to elude capture. Now, he’s returned once again, and his new hunting ground is Augusta, GA. O’Reilly teams up with Shaun Henderson, the special agent in charge of the Augusta Residence Agency, to bring this ruthless killer to justice once and for all. But as each second ticks by, tensions rise and O’Reilly finds himself in a race against time before the killer slips away again.
I received this book in exchange for an honest book review. I have given I Can Kill by Angela Kay five out of five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Another great book written by Angela Kay! Such an incredibly thrilling crime story which had me drawn in from the very first chapter. One thing that I’ve noticed about Kay’s stories is that there is no waiting around, right from the beginning something happens to grasp your attention and makes you intrigued to find out what is going to happen next. The suspense built between these pages of the book were unsettling, all I wanted to do was to finish this book in one sitting so I could find out how it was all going to unravel. FBI Special Agent Aidan O’Reilly was a very strong, interesting character whom I enjoyed learning and reading about. We learn about his past with The Carnations Killer, as he has a lot of unsolved cases which give him chilling nightmares and he will not stop until he catches the person behind the name.
I really liked the strong partner relationship between Aidan O’Reilly and Shaun Henderson. It felt very realistic to how I can imagine agents to act and be with one another in real life, I enjoyed reading about their relationship bond. They deal with a lot of stress throughout this book however they are so determined between the two of them to catch The Carnations Killer that they never gave up nor would they. I really enjoyed reading from both Aidan O’Reilly and the serial killer’s POV, one of my favourite narratives that a book can have. It was very chilling to read from the serial killers POV and it had me on the edge of my seat and I almost fell off of my seat once I found out who the suspect was!
I was quite oblivious to whom was behind the serial killings over the past years which I really liked as there’s nothing better than an author being able to outsmart your observations and judgements of what’s going to happen to what actually does happen.
I think this is definitely one of my all time favourite genres as I’ve started to see a pattern of the past few books I’ve read have mostly been about crime thrillers.
