Review of ‘Killing Me Softly’

Posted on Updated on

Love is a wonderful thing, but when it’s obsessive it can be deadly. Documentary filmmaker Sondra Ellis is still coming to grips with the senseless murder of her sister, Tracy. When she runs into Tracy’s ex-boyfriend, she becomes obsessed with finding out what really happened that night when Tracy disappeared after going out jogging, and then was found days later, dead on the lakeshore with her face smashed in. Was it really a mugging gone wrong, or something more sinister?

Killing Me Softly by Bianca Sloane was originally published as Live and Let Die. The author, an indie writer, decided to republish it with minor revisions and a  new cover and title. I didn’t read the original book, but, if it was as good as this new version, Sloane is an author to watch. She walks us through the complexities of the characters’ lives, and shows in graphic detail how an obsession can turn deadly, and leave scars that are slow to heal.

Even though we know what happened, Sloane still manages to keep the drama high, and the reader guessing what will happen next.

If you like tense, page-turning thrillers, look no further. I give this one five stars.

    This author likes to name their books after popular songs! I wonder what Roberta Flack and 007 James Bond thinks of these titles!! LOL!!
