My Review

Slow Drip is an intense thrill-ride through the dark machinations of a serial killer's mind. 
A small town is reeling after discovering the bodies of three young women, all killed in the same gruesome manner: they had their femoral vein (not the artery) sliced and bled out slowly until they were dead. It's up to Detective Tina Patterson and her partner Dennis to try and unravel the mystery surrounding the deaths of these women. Who could do such a thing, and why? And how does a teenager with a head injury and strange dreams come into play? You'll have to read the book to find out.
I really enjoyed this story. It was crazy from start to finish, and it had me guessing until the very end. I had so many people I suspected, but of course, it was... well, I can't spoil things, so I'll stop there.
I liked the weird little poems the killer included with each murder. It had a sort of Zodiac Killer vibe going on. This killer definitely enjoyed toying with and teasing the cops. 
I also liked that there was a small bit of paranormal element to the story as well. Detective Patterson mentions having an almost sixth sense sort of ability sometimes, and Jeff also has a psychic-like connection to the newest victim of the killer. It was fascinating, and I really hope the other books explore this more.
The one thing I would have liked a bit more would have been some extra fleshing-out of the killer. What's his back story? You get a glimpse of it in the book, but it left me a little unsatisfied. I would have liked to know more about him, what, specifically, happened to set him off, etc. 
And I did notice a few editing/grammatical errors throughout the book, but nothing too major to detract from my enjoyment of the story.
Overall, Slow Drip is a solid crime thriller, and I'd recommend it to fans of the genre. 
4 stars from me!
