Hangman begins with the escape of a pscyhotic serial killer known as “The Hangman”. Abbie Kearney is a profiler with the Buffalo Police, and she’s set on the case to find this twisted serial murderer before he makes another victim. But as the clock starts ticking, and terror rises in the otherwise sleepy town, Abbie and her team realize they may have more than one killer on their hands. What if the Hangman has an accomplice? And how the heck can they find out who he is? Abbie tries to get to the bottom of the Hangman’s personality. She wants to find out who he is, why he kills people, and why he targets a specific group of girls, and hopefully before it’s too late.
Abbie is an intriguing main character. With a haunted past, a healthy dose of determination, and a knack for profiling, she’s an enjoyable protagonist to read about. The pacing is set on high from the first pace, and the writing was brutal, suitable for the genre, and for the characters passing the revue. It’s dark, gritty, nail-biting suspense, just the way I like it.
As a downside though, there could’ve been more character development. Even though Abbie goes through a great deal from start to finish, in this book, her personality never changes or grows because of it.
Apart from that, I loved the book, and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good mystery/suspense novel. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is a wonderful read...the second in the series after 'Black Irish', which I also enjoyed immensely! Please, Mr. Talty, continue writing this terrific series. I love the heroine, flawed as she may be, makes her even more credible. The basis of the crimes themselves keep me stuck in my seat, unable to put the book down. I literally had to read it in one sitting because I could not put it down. Now, I'm sad I've finished it so quickly! I anxiously await the next book in this series & I do truly hope they keep coming....amazing writer & awesome series!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
