Review: Tell My Dad

cover104634-medium.pngHow far would you go to protect your children?

“Stay away” — Those are the two words written on the forehead of every pedophile murdered in San Francisco Bay Area.

Joshua Theaker is tasked with finding the killer whose killing methods involve strange weapons. Theaker and local law enforcement find it hard to agree on where the trail goes while local FBI is distracted by child kidnappings. For Theaker, there is a pattern among the victims. But just when Theaker thinks he is getting closer to the killer, he strikes again. And again.

Tell My Dad was an absolutely chilling story that I’m not sure I was emotionally prepared for but that I’m very much glad I decided to pick up. There’s a lot to be said for the power of the phrase inspired by true events.

There were a lot of different stories to follow throughout this narrative, and they were all handled well, keeping me frantically turning pages to find out how everything would come together by the end of the story. There were some scenes that were particularly hard to take, but in the end served to raise the stakes and make for a strong ending that will absolutely have me keeping an eye out for more from this author in the future.
