TITLE: These Violent Roots
AUTHOR: Nicole Williams
GENRE: psychological thriller
PUBLICATION: January 26th, 2021
Grace Wolff spends her days fighting monsters, and her nights hiding from her own. As a public prosecutor in the sexual crimes unit, she knows more about rapists, pedophiles, and deviants than most people dare to consider.

Dr. Noah Wolff is as acquainted with monsters as his wife. While Grace dedicates her career to putting violent offenders away, Noah is more interested in rehabilitating them. A renowned psychiatrist specializing in sexual deviance, he counsels a burgeoning number of court-appointed patients wrestling with evil in its darkest form.

When Grace discovers a long line of pedophile suicides have been murders in disguise, she is duty-bound to aid in the investigation. But in her quest to track down the killer, Grace faces an ethical impasse. As a steward of the law, she has an obligation to seek justice for the murders. As a human being, she accepts that “innocent until proven guilty” is laden with loopholes criminals slip through too easily, and too often.

As she hunts the hunter, Grace is forced to acknowledge a complicated truth. To defeat the swell of monsters preying upon humanity’s most innocent, one must become a monster themselves.

My Review

Is a full-length stand alone psychological thriller, by Nicole Williams.

I haven't read anything by this author in such a long time, and it's definitely not something I've seen her dabble in before so to say I was highly anticipating this book was obviously an understatement.

The blurb ticked all my boxes.

Grace Wolff is a very successful prosecutor whilst her husband in addition to his private practice Noah
is a court appointed psychiatrist, He counsels pedophiles and runs several support groups for recovering and celibate pedophiles, both working on opposite spectrums of the board.

This did take me a wee bit to get into and found it a wee bit drawn out in some places, it wasn't until we started getting into the brain storming surrounding the serial killer is where for me I started to get more of a feel for the storyline and characters and I started to really enjoy it more. My head and heart started going to war against the other.

“ I might have dealt with sexual predators in my line of work, but I came at the issue from an entirely different angle than Noah did. I prosecuted sexual criminals. Noah counselled them, seeking to simultaneously understand and support them. ”

When a predator is released back in the community and days after he ends his life its not until the body is examined that it showed defensive wounds.

Later on a private investigative task force is recruited which uncovers many more cases like the one above, now the hunt is on for a serial killer being nabbed 'The Huntsman' who it seems operates at a national level.

“ The name would go down in history alongside the handful of other prolific serial killers in modern times. ”

I needed to see how the author was going to tie it all up
The suspense was killing me
Speed reading commenced.

Twists and turns kept me reading till the end..
