Review-The Kult

Title: The Kult
Author: Shaun Jeffrey

People are predictable. That's what makes them easy to kill.

Acting out of misguided loyalty to his friends, police officer Prosper Snow is goaded into helping them perform a copycat killing, but when the real killer comes after him, it’s not only his life on the line, but his family's too. Now if he goes to his colleagues for help, he risks being arrested for murder. If he doesn't, he risks being killed.

My Review:
Detective Prosper Snow is in the thick of investigating a series of crimes committed by a killer known only as The Oracle. When one of his old buddies, from his high school group called The Kult, approaches him and the other members with a proposition, things start to get real sticky. They perform a copycat killing for the friend, and all hell breaks loose. Now Prosper must keep the police from finding out the truth about the copycat murder, and must keep a watchful eye out for The Oracle who seems to be gunning for Prosper and all who surround him.
Overall the story was good. I was a bit frustrated because I felt it started out slow, but it did pick up in the middle and the end. It was well written, although I will say it is not for the faint of heart. The murders are a bit graphic. There is a surprise twist in the end (I won't ruin it) but I actually figured it out before it was presented. =)
A thrilling read, that made me want to be a little more cautious about my surroundings.
