Synopsis (From Goodreads)
Quill Creek, Alaska, 1991. 22 year old Sarah Enos is stabbed to death. The killer was never found. The truth of it sinks into the snow. Until 23 years later when Loeb Cohen becomes obsessed with Quill Creek and the quiet killing of the most beautiful girl he’s ever seen.
GOD DAMN! Luke Taylor has got some talent! My only regret with this book is that I hadn’t read it as soon I received it. I was lucky to have spoken a few times with Luke on Goodreads and I was really impressed with the reviews and average ratings of his books; so when he asked if I wanted copies I was thrilled!
The Quiet Kill is a wonderful story, that takes us on a journey with two people fighting their own sets of demons while falling in love; all while trying to a solve a decades old unsolved murder; in Alaska.
I felt that this novel was a really enjoyable slow burn, I was already half way through when I realized how attached I had already become to the characters! I love Cat, she is definitely not your average heroine; and I love it! As for Loeb, he could I think learn to stop beating himself up a bit but he was adorable! I am enamored of the two of them together!
The plot was great! The mystery actually kept me guessing. In fact I had absolutely guessed the wrong person the whole time. It was very easy to just skip over this person in the suspect line-up; that is if you put them in the lineup at all! All of the red herrings were smoothly played.
Taylor’s writing style was a little different than what I was used to, but it was really unique. He has a vocabulary, and style that is smooth and engaging. I highly recommend this book!
