Book Review: Night Fall


From The Back:

For any little boy or girl who hears the Train Man speak,
Who feels his rancid breath caress their pretty cheek,
Must close their eyes, pretend to sleep, and very softly pray,
Or else the evil Train Man may carry them away.

Finally free of her troubled upbringing, Alex Donovan is able to live out her childhood dream of working for the FBI. But soon after she becomes a member of the FBI's elite Behavioral Analysis Unit, authorities in Missouri contact them about bodies found on freight trains--all killed in the same way.

Alex never expected to be forced to confront her past in this new job, but she immediately recognizes the graffiti messages the killer is leaving on the train cars. When the BAU sends her to gather information about the messages from her aunt in Wichita, Kansas, Alex is haunted by the struggles she thought she'd left behind forever.

My reflections: Nancy Mehl is one of my favorite authors. Her books are always filled with non-stop action, suspense, and well-rounded characters. Her newest series is not much different, in this book you know right off who the perpetrator is. Now I do love good surprise but I was able to glean more information about this sinister character so this wasn't a deal-breaker. 

This could be a triggering book for those who suffer from PTSD and have experienced similar upbringings. I say this because of the dark ambiance, coupled with the mention of cults and abuse may be too close to home for some.

F.B.I. behavioral analyst Alex Donavan had my attention straight away, she is spunky and unbelievably strong. Not sure if she can face her bygone past she puts on a brave face and dose her job, but will all the stress of her past be too much for her to catch the "Destroyer?" Can she use her knoledge about "The Book" and its followers to save the lives of more innocent people? 

I adored Logan Heart, his gentle demaner and caring heart work into Alexe's resolve. His faith is stong and when Alex struggles with her fears he is there to provide compfort and kindness, it dosn't count that he finds her attractive!

I can't wait until the next book comes out, I'm sure Alex has more bad guys to catch.
