Book Review – The Beautiful Dead


The Beautiful Dead by Belinda Bauer (Bantam Press) ISBN: 978-0-593-07552-4

Eve Singer is a crime reporter and her ratings are down. Her boss is giving her hell and she is desperate.

When a killer contacts her, she knows this is her shot. He wants an audience, he needs people to see what has he, they need to see the beauty of death and Eve is just the person the help him with that. Eve soon realises that killing is not his only obsession, he has her in his sights as well.

Chilling, violent and scary this book kept me up way past my bedtime. I enjoyed the pace and found the bizarre nature of the crimes fascinating. This is a great holiday read and a must for lovers of the crime genre. I’ll keep an eye out for this author, I hope the next book is coming out soon.
