Blood Ribbon by Roger Bray

ThrillersThis book is the Best in Thrillers winner of 2018 Book Talk Radio Club Awards.  While this book definitely fits the thriller genre it has a nice benefit of not being gruesome.  I would easily share this with a mature YA reader.

Another benefit is that this book is a standalone and has a complete ending.  It was nice to have closure.


While it takes a little while to get the flow of the book and the transfers in time, as well as characters, each of these things are essential to understanding the story.  In addition, the author gives you a glimpse into the mind of the killer which helps adds to the intense nature of the story as well as the intrigue of following the plot.
