It is now officially 2023 and why not treat yourself to a new book for the New Year???
One might guess that with eighteen books to his credit that Nathan Dylan Goodwin was running out of ideas. But nope. Book number nineteen, The Sawtooth Slayer, adds another star on his story flag.
The Sawtooth Slayer is set in April 2020 in Twin Falls, Idaho, where a serial killer is on the loose. A nameless man is kidnapping young women from their own homes, taking them out of the city to kill them before returning their bodies to random locations around the city. The local officers in charge in frustration turn to Venator—an investigative genetic genealogical company—in hopes that they can identify the killer from his left-behind DNA before he kills another young woman.
This book is definitely not another typical murder mystery. The Sawtooth Slayer is different in that DNA is featured prominently in the solving of the murders.
Will the Venator team solve this string of gruesome murders? You betchya….with the help from DNA.
The old phrase comes to mind: “Try it, you’ll like it.” And I believe you will. You can order it from Amazon in Kindle format, hardcover and paperback ($13.99).
I enjoyed (and was horrified) this book so much! Because the team is working under the pressure to find answers and prevent another murder, there was so much tension! Bizarre to hear that the recent murders in Moscow, Idaho, so close to Twin Falls, also had DNA evidence to help arrest the suspect just this week.
