A serial killer is terrorizing towns around Puget Sound. Kitsap County Sherriff’s Detective Kendall Stark begins the investigation and identifies the common threads linking these murders. Serenity Hutchins is a hungry young reporter intent on making her name on this story, but where is she getting her inside information?

I really liked Kendall as a lead character. I’m glad that Olsen included some of her back story and home life, to give the reader a more rounded character. She is a really strong female lead character – smart, resilient, resourceful, intelligent and compassionate.

I was less enthralled with Serenity. Though I think I understand some of her thought process, given her upbringing, I just can’t reconcile her behavior with that of a committed journalist. I’m struggling with how to describe my dissatisfaction with her as a character, because I don’t want to include any spoilers.

Still, I could barely put it down. This is a tightly-written, fast-paced psychological thriller. It’s not for the faint of heart; it’s about a sexual sadist serial killer, and there are some very graphic scenes. ( )

Victim Six by Gregg Olsen was a very interesting read – it was like no other book I have ever read.

General thoughts:

Not a book for everyone
• Very sadistic, violent, egotistical, no respect for women - antagonist
• Multiple sexual situations or references to sexual situations – non consensual, rape, torture, necrophilia
• Words that come to mind when thinking about this book – grizzly, vile, cruel, hateful, insensitive, sadistic, dark, bleak, abusive, twisted, lack of human compassion
• No support from outside (of the town) law enforcement agencies for assistance in finding a serial killer
• Leading, investigating officer – Kendell has a challenging home life, amazing she can work this case with its heavy emotional toll
• I didn't like the female supporting cast – petty, egotistical, some were just TSTL to stupid to live
• Antagonist is known to the reader before the end of the book, it’s part of the plot to make it known
• Well written, most loose ends tied up by the end of the book

I have to say that it did hold my attention, but not a book I would call entertaining.

Started May 30th, 2013.
Not too bad, but at least one glaring mistake in the storyline: the reporter agrees early on that her phone can be tapped for recording the calls by the police - without approval of her editor and without telling him. That is not followed up and given the setup it would have helped and solved the case much earlier.
Ending not too convincing, was mostly what I expected early on.
Could have been a bit tighter, sometimes the side-roles where too long explained in the text.

Victim Six had a strong female character lead and I really like that. Everything wasn't put together from the very start, the police actually stumbled a bit trying to figure it all out.

Some people complained of the killers point of view, however I haven't read many books with the killers point of view so I rather liked getting a new look at things. ( )

Had to abandon this - just couldn't get into it - no tension at all. ( )
