Deadly Intent has a core set of main characters, Brier being the main one. The town is not real small. They have schools and a police force and shops and a hospital. The population is big enough that there¿s not a lot of panic when people begin to go crazy and kill others or get killed. They don¿t even cancel Halloween trick-or-treating. Brier seems to take all the worrying onto his shoulders -- until soldiers block the town and allow no one to leave or enter. It¿s up to Police Chief Brier and a doctor to somehow figure out what is causing people to go berserk. People die in bizarre ways. Some are folks you¿ve gotten to know in the book. Others are just townsfolk who, for no apparent reason, kill someone. Without a reason for why they would do such a thing, it¿s hard for both the reader and the Police Chief to figure out who did the killing, let alone why. With no help from the outside, he¿s on his own. The killings are unexpected and horrible, and the cause of the epidemic is unknown. I would have liked to get to know more of the people in the town so I felt some empathy for them before they kill or get killed. But that is difficult since, as the killings speed up, more and more people are dying. I give Deadly Intent a rating of Hel-of-a-Writer because probably only an adept writer could have come up with such a creative plot.

the different ways people either killed or became killed was the coolest part of this book. but it lacked character development big time. so many different characters doing crazy things but the main characters just felt as random as the rest. it didn't really pull me in as much as I would have hoped. Worth the .99 though for sure and it is a nice quick easy read.

First time reading this author. Quite an imagination. I had to keep reading to see how many different ways someone could get murdered. A quick read but great story with lots of characters. Would read more of her books.

Characters were one dimentional. Very sophomoric.
