Malevolent (Cases of Lieutenant Kane Series of Police Procedural Novels, #1) by E.H. Reinhard

Tampa homicide lieutenant Carl Kane has a tough job. His day-to-day consists of decomposing dead bodies and removing murderers from the general public. But when two women’s bodies are found under similar circumstances, it quickly turns into more than your average case. The killer is clearly looking to make a name for himself, and his plans for these women go far beyond death.

When the media runs with the story, the killer’s moment in the spotlight arrives.

It’s up to Lieutenant Kane to bring the man the press has dubbed the Psycho Surgeon to justice. However, being the lead on the case has its drawbacks—like becoming the focus of the killer yourself.

As Lieutenant Kane closes in on his suspect, he soon realizes the case has become far more personal than he could have ever imagined.

I hardly ever give a book a five star rating. I give a lot of fours, but fives, nope. I almost gave this 219 page novel four stares, because it is first person and I detest first person, but the book was so good, it got five stars anyway. It is a rathrr violent, gory, police mystery. For adults. Recommended. AD

I really like this book. It grabbed my attention from the very first and kept it until the end. It reminded me somewhat of the "Prey" books by John Stanford. I love those books. The characters were interesting but  without long drawn-out descriptive pages. I will definitely look to read more of his books.

The author really did a great job in bringing the characters to life. I truly enjoyed this book. What is done to these women is something you just don't see in other detective stories. Great character building. This is going to be a fantastic series!

By page 30 the spelling and grammar errors were so numerous that it was annoying. Add to that how poorly the story was told, and it became impossibly lacking in even entertainment value. This writer needs a good editor and lots of proofreaders before daring to charge for his future works.

I liked how the author gave two different perspectives, and I also liked details he gave about being on the job, that made it relatable for me. I think that the detail about the crime was a little too much gore for me, but I am sure others liked it

Loved the story. However the one item that made me cringe was “a hold “. ‘A’ must be dropped, please. Should be “got hold of.”

The best thing I can say about this book is that it is fast paced. You hurtle through the pages in a mad rush to the end. There are two reasons for this, one is that the writing style is such that it propels you through the book the second is that you can't wait to get to the end of it. The murders are graphic and strangely compelling. Certainly not a methodology that I have come across in the multitude of books and TV programmes of this genre I have watched. I also enjoyed the fact that the killer did not want his victims to die, he wanted them to live, to be his branded legacy. Unfortunately, away from that the procedural story is, I am sorry to say, boring. The characters are all flat and stereotypical and no empathy could be felt for any of them. Away from the originality of the murders, the behaviours of the protagonist are laughably easy to predict and you know how this is all going to pan out and how. I can see that the author was trying to give a more realistic view of the procedures in place to investigate a dumped body and I do applaud them for that. In fact the plotting was pretty good (if predicatable, but then we know the cop will always get his man or woman when going in to these tales) and the writing was pacy and strong. what let this down for me was the complete lack of any reality to the characters. All the usual cop tropes were there and nobody was anything more than two-dimensional and restricted to the paper and ink they were created from. Because this genre is so predictable to make a real impact the characters need to be fresh and realistic and lack of such when held up against an overfull library section means that it will always be marked very poorly. Not for me and I am reluctant to risk any more in the series - I am strangely tempted to see what twisted way of dispatching victims E. H. Reinhard can come up with next so may give the next one in the series a go on a slow reading day
