I really enjoyed reading Predictable Violence by Gillean Campbell. Detective Mackenzie (Mack) Anderson has a very tragic past. It is the reason she became a homicide detective. When a triple homicide occurs, along with a confession, it seems as if it will be an open and shut case. However, something about the case does not sit right in Mackenzie’s gut. Mackenzie races against time to find the answers while fighting the ghosts from her past.
Campbell has done an excellent job with Predictable Violence. I loved the character of Mack. She is a strong female character. She shows readers a different way to deal with grief. That is to fight back and help others that have suffered similar circumstances. I also loved the character of Sigurd. He was such a great protector. He and Mack had great chemistry. There are two stories going on in this book. Mack’s personal story about how she deals with her grief and the murder mystery. I thought Mack’s story was inspiring. She showed me that grief can lead to good things. The murder mystery part of the book was good and had me going for a bit. I guessed who the murderer was before the end, but I had a lot of suspects to eliminate first.
It has been a while since I read a book that I did not want to put down. This book made me lose sleep, but it was well worth it. I hope Campbell continues to write because she has definitely has talent. So, if you like a good murder mystery, then this is the book for you!
