“The poet is a liar who always speaks the truth.” -Jean Cocteau
Some call him friend or boss. Some call him husband or dad. Some call him son, even a favorite son.
But the only title that matters to him is the one the media has given him: The Poet.
A name he earned from the written words he leaves behind after he kills that are as dark and mysterious as the reason he chooses his victims.
One word, two, three, a story in a poem, a secret that only Detective Samantha Jazz can solve. Because he’s writing this story for her.
She just doesn’t know it yet.
#FirstLine ~ I sit in the back row of the theater-style Austin, Texas speakeasy, the air conditioner cranked on high, soothing the heat of a hot August night.
This book was so good. I loved it so much. It was one of those reads that captured me right away and kept me buzzing through the pages. I was drawn into the story and the characters. It was paced well and held my interest from start to finish. A must read for thriller lovers and those that want to be lost in the pages of a captivating read!
