Did you know that James Rollins Recommends...
Plain Jane: Brunettes Beware, a Top 10 bestseller in both Hard-Boiled Mysteries and Police Procedurals.

Let's see why...
"Wickedly macabre and blisteringly paced, PLAIN JANE marks the debut of a thriller for the new millennium. Brash, funny, terrifying, and shocking, here is a story best enjoyed with all the lights on. Don't say I didn't warn you!"
James Rollins
NYT Best Seller
Bloodline

"This book is so creepy. I made the mistake of starting in one night before bed. Not only did the story line keep me turning pages, it freaked me out to the point that I didn't want to turn off my light."
The Book Goddess
Book Reviewer

"This one had me flipping pages until 2 in the morning. I knew when I saw the quote from James Rollins (one of my favorites) that I would get at least my money's worth out of the book, but I had NO idea what laid in store for me."
Mimi - Novel Ideas

Overview:
Plain Jane: Brunettes Beware
A Patterson-style thriller with a dash of Hannibal...

A city paralyzed by a serial killer stalking the night, taking a most gruesome trophy.
The only standing in the murderer's way is an FBI profiler...recently released from a mental institution.

Plain Jane combines the swift action of Patterson with the macabre of Harris.

Just remember to keep the lights on when reading this one!

More Praise for Plain Jane...
"When I read on the author's blog that Plain Jane was a "Patterson-style thriller with a dash of Hannibal" I knew right away that I wanted to read it. I was not disappointed and in my honest opinion this book is incredible!"
A. Harris

"Right out of the gate this book creeped me out. Being a brunette myself, the title alone was enough to scare me! This was a seriously good book. Words like unhinged, grotesque, shocking, intriguing, and macabre were spinning through my head as I read the stunning and suspenseful pages."

Format: Kindle Edition
I purchased the book because of John Rollins' evaluation. I should say that I was somewhat disappointed. I certainly cannot compare it to Patterson whose plots are tightly weaved. The writing here is amateurish and the character development not very deep. Both the profiler and his ex lover detective are unbelievable and their relationship is not credible.

The storyline is interesting but no way near frought with terror. The allusion made to this novel being Hannibal like really falls short of the mark. No where do we find that level of tension, terror and gruesomeness.

There is however an interesting twist to the end ; the murderer is not predictable but the circumstances surrounding the why and the how (it's hard not to provide a spoiler) is not quite believable .

I did read the whole book in one sitting so it' s not a book to be totally discounted. The story is not as compelling as it could have been but it does incite the reader to find the killer .

Beautifully flawed characters, this book was very entertaining. Plenty of twist and turns and a unexpected ending. Highly recommend reading

I would recommend this to anyone that likes to feel that heart stopping, breath holding anxiety that comes from one of Ms McCrays books.
