I just finished reading The Scavengers Daughter and had to share my comments so you don’t miss out on a fabulous read. A combination thriller/mystery/horror, this book starts out with a gripping prologue and launches straight into action with the first of its high-profile victims. McIntyre spares us no mercy in the vivid detail he gives of each torture method inflicted on his victims. The tension builds in every chapter – and there are a lot of them.
Set in San Diego, Southern California, the story dives into the gruesome world of medieval torture inflicted by a modern day killer. Investigative reporter, Tyler West continually defies the police in a desperate search for the sadomasochist, Friar Tom, before he loses everything that matters to him.
The Scavengers Daughter is an involved, complicated plot expertly woven together to create a fantastic, suspenseful read. The chapters are short, the pace is fast and furious, and the reader is immediately hooked right up to the end. The characters are realistic, well developed and likable, even with their flaws. The villain, despite his cruel and dire passion for torture, is believable and convincing.
I didn’t want this book to end.
