The Killer’s Wife ~ by Victor Methos

This is one of the most brutal crime novels I’ve ever read. Believe me it’s not for the sensitive souls. I got it because I’ve enjoyed the prior books by Methos – (not loved but enjoyed) and it was on sale. Okay fine.

Jessica Yardley, an FBI assistant attorney working in the Salt Lake City area, was married for several years to Eddie,  now in prison, and on death row actually, for a series of murders for which he was found guilty.  Yardley has custody of their now 15-year old daughter. And then there’s Yardley’s current roommate – Wesley Paul, a college law professor. 

The problem is that now a new serial killer is on the loose and is apparently copy-catting Eddie’s crimes.  Jessica is the one who would know – or might know – the new guy’s next move.  To help the prosecution she has to put her life and the life of her daughter on the line. Still – it’s something she has to do.
 
The plot was good with lots of twists, but it was a bit strained in terms of believability.  The characters were nicely drawn.  I had problems with the narrator who sounded perpetually bored.
