The killer lives a normal life during the day, while hunting the Throw Away Girls at night, punishing them for their dark urges. He leaves messages behind in his victims' blood, his explanation for enacting such brutal, twisted justice upon the unworthy. He watches the media coverage. He knows the wily reporter is chasing him. As Jaycee follows her gut, and the evidence, she forces him to act. But when a killer is clever and cunning, he can infiltrate anywhere. Jaycee must utilize all her skills to expose him before he gets to her first.

This one those reviews that is kinda hard for me to write without giving away lot, so I will kinda skim over some things. Throw Away Girls is giving to us the reader from a reports POV. It was a little different having this from the reporters point of view rather then from someone within the law enforcement side of the investigation, but I thought it was it was interesting to see if from this side though.

Now on to the plot itself, there has been a few murders of young girls that has caught the attention of a news reporter, Jaycee Wilder, who makes it her mission to expose this killer at any costs. But this is one methodical and completely frightening killer and things get even scarier as Jaycee becomes more involved in the investigation.

Jaycee is a determined young woman who puts everything she has into her work and I have to say that I admire for her that. She takes these womens murders very hard and personal, and does everything she can. She is just amazing. There are a lot of other characters that were really good too, and helped her a lot too of which I enjoyed as well.

The crimes scenes are detailed and graphic but it gives you a perfect image of the horror these women went through. But I will say it is not for the faint of heart that’s for sure. It’s a gritty and gruesome and the story moves along you’re given little clues and it keeps you turning the pages. Definitely an enthralling read and I will be on the look out for the next book. I certainly think fans of suspense and thrillers and especially those who like a good murder mystery will enjoy this one.

    Wow, this sounds like a seriously good read. I admit that I rarely reach for suspense-thrillers (just not my preferred genre), but once in a blue moon I do pick one up for something completely different. It’s an interesting way to tell the story – not from a cop, or the killer, or even a would-be victim – but from a reporter covering the case. Glad you enjoyed this one, Jenea!

    This story looks really good. I like when a book is so tricky to review that saying anything will give something away. I can totally relate to that. Those are usually my favorite read thought too. Great review!
