He will predict your life… and your death. Don’t ever cross his palm with silver. He will reveal your most shameful secrets. He will predict your death. He is hiding a secret. He is hiding a monster. And all his predictions come true. Investigating a series of chilling murders, Detective Jennifer Knight finds herself tracking a mysterious tarot card reader known only as The Raven. As the death toll rises, Jennifer and her team build a picture of a serial killer on the edge of sanity, driven by dark forces. But these are not random killings. And the method behind the madness could be the most terrifying thing of all … Especially when it seems the death of one of their own is on the cards.
Let me start by saying I love shows like Supernatural, where the mystery and unknown is combined with a scary story. I love horror movies. And I love reading thrillers, so when I read the summary of ‘Time to die’ I knew this was a book for me.
The supernatural element in this book is not such a huge part of it that it can bother you if you’re not a fan of that. But it’s present throughout the whole book, enough to get goosebumps all over your body whilst you’re reading this. Caroline Mitchell has done a great job by sharing enough of the characters that you get to know them, but not too much. It makes you want to keep on reading, but still feel comfortable enough with the characters.
The ending though, OMG, I did not see that coming. The whole time Caroline Mitchell tells you to follow one lead, which you believe. And then, BANG, it’s a whole different story. And that’s the whole factor I loved about the book (and good thrillers for that matter). The supernatural element is a bonus, as it makes the story stand out from other thrillers, at least for me.
If you love thrillers and supernatural elements, you’ll love ‘Time to die’. It keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout the story. I really loved this book and will definitely read more of Caroline Mitchell.
