A Murderous Mind: A Naomi Blake British Mystery by Jane A. Adams

A student is found murdered in her bedroom at the dorm.  No one heard anything.  The killing was brutal.  How did the killer get in?  Why kill her?

Severn House and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published March 1st.

The cast of characters in this story is varied.  There are several cops, some retired cops, students, and a couple of assassins.  Most of the characters have baggage from their past.  A dead cop comes back to haunt them.  There's lots of drama and it's an interesting story.

The dead girl appears to be a random victim.  It's not until an older cop points out the similarity between this case and an old one that they realize they have a serial killer on their hands.

The killer is smart even if he is insane.  He picks those who look at him and recognize him as dangerous.  I'd be in trouble if I met him.  The worst part is that he is almost untouchable.  They can't prove anything.

The author lets you know who the killer is about half way through the book.  I wondered about at that at the time but it sets things up for the ending.  Ms. Adams does a great job of story telling and the ending is a killer.
