Overview

They Never Die Quietly tells the story of homicide Detective Sami Rizzo, who is assigned to head a task force investigating serial killings in San Diego. Simon, the highly intelligent, cunning, and deceptively charming villain, redefines the depths of human evil. He believes God has given him absolute authority to purify his unholy victims through a ritual that ends in a grisly crucifixion. Driven by warped religious beliefs and guided by his dead mother, very much alive in his subconscious, Simon abducts “chosen ones” and holds them captive in a Room of Redemption. There, the victims helplessly await their crucifixion. Detective Rizzo urgently yearns to solve the case and gain the respect of her male colleagues, but her obsession to apprehend the killer on her own clouds her thinking. When Simon outsmarts Rizzo and captures her, determined to make her his next victim, she must employ all her resources—both physical and intellectual—to outwit the villain at his own game.

About the Author

Daniel Annechino’s passion has always been fiction, particularly thrillers. He wrote several novels early in his writing career, but it wasn’t until he authored "They Never Die Quietly” that he fulfilled his goal as a novelist. A native of New York, Annechino now lives in San Diego with his wife, Jennifer. He loves to cook, enjoys a glass of vintage wine, and spends lots of leisure time on the warm beaches of Southern California. He is currently working on a sequel titled “Resuscitation”, which he promises will be even more chilling than “They Never Die Quietly”.

I couldn't finish this one. Once the main character meets the serial killer without knowing who it is, I can pretty much see what's going to happen and I don't have the energy to read it. Also, once the kids start getting hurt I wasn't interested in reading more.

This is a great police thriller with a strong female detective(Sami) who reminds me of Jane Rizzoli in Tess Gerritsen novels. In They Never Die Quietly, Sami and her partner Al are assigned to find a serial killer who crucifies his victims. I will definitely read the next book by this author!

I am a fan of this series. However I have read this series our of order. I started with book two and recently finished book three and then jumped back to book one. Only this is the first book I have not read but listened to in audio version. Which I have to say that I found that the narrator, Christina Traister did a good job of narrating this book on audio version. Yet despite Ms. Traister's work I had a hard time really getting into this book as much as I have the other two novels. At first I was into the story but than I started to lose focus on the story and would occasionally get pulled back in. Sami does show a little of how she can hold her own in a man's world. Yet she has really grown into a powerful force as the series as progressed. Also, there is some strong language used in this book so be warned if you do not like this type of language. Although this book is not my favorite I still am a fan of this author's work and will read more books in this series.

D.M. Annechino in his new book, "They Never Die Quietly" Book One in the Sami Rizzo Series published by Createspace Publishing introduces us to Sami Rizzo. From the back cover: Experience a new kind of terror. Meet Simon. This highly intelligent and deceptively charming physical therapist loves to touch people: “Inflicting pain through aggressive manipulation helped the healing process.” Simon has a secret calling. He believes that God has given him absolute authority to purify his unholy victims through a ritual that ends in grisly crucifixions. Driven by twisted religious beliefs and guided by his dead mother, very much alive in his subconscious mind, Simon abducts “chosen ones” and holds them captive in a Room of Redemption. There, the victims helplessly await deliverance. In this breakneck-paced, exquisitely horrific thriller, Detective Sami Rizzo is assigned to head a task force investigating serial killings in San Diego — brutal murders unlike anything the city has ever seen. Detective Rizzo urgently yearns to solve the case and gain the respect of her male colleagues, but her determination to apprehend the killer on her own clouds her thinking. When Simon outsmarts Rizzo, determined to make her his next victim, she must employ all her resources — both physical and intellectual — to beat the villain at his own game. There is a serial killer on the loose in San Diego. There is a woman detective that is looking to gain the respect of her peers. Both Simon and Sami know each other. And Simon wants to make Sami his next victim. Get ready Mr. Annechino has given us a fast-paced page-turning thriller. "They Never Die Quietly" is loaded with twists and turns that will leave you guessing all the while you are flipping pages to find out what happens next. Sami Rizzo is a character that captures your attention and makes you want to root for her to succeed. This book is going to take up all of your attention so start reading early because once you get started you will not want to put this book down until you actually finish. I am looking forward to the next book in this series. Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from IRead Book Tours. I was not required to write a positive review.

This is a great book. Once I started it I couldn't stop. The book is about a Religious fanatic Simon, who kills women in front of their small children. He feels that killing these women purifies him. His mother who has been dead for years keeps telling him he is doing God's work. Sami Rizzo is assigned to head the task force on the case of the murders. She wants to end the terror so much so that a handsome face clouds her judgment at first, before she becomes suspicious of the man who she is attracted to. She ends up in the middle of the insanity herself. This book is very fast paced. From page one this book drug me in and didn't turn me loose until the last period in the book. There is just enough description of surroundings to keep you in the know but not so much as to bore you. At least not for me. D.M. Annechino has done a great job with this book. I can't wait to get started on the next book. I listened to the Audio Book which is read by Christina Traister. She does a wonderful job. you can feel the characters emotions in her voice. She as well as the book has a way of keeping you involved. I really like when listening to a audio book and the narrator makes it sound more like a conversation then just a fat book. You know when the character is smiling because you can hear it, I will be looking for more books read by her. I was given an audiobook by the Author in exchange for my honest review.

Sami Rizzo made a promise to her father on his death-bed - a promise that she would work in law enforcement, and become a detective. With dedication, she achieved this goal, despite being a single mother to a two-year-old daughter. She is the only woman on the Homicide squad. She and her partner, Alberto "Al" Diaz, are involved in a difficult murder investigation, and the bodies are piling up. The women are crucified, sexually assaulted, and have their hearts removed before being dumped on the steps of local churches. The body count is rising, and her boss is getting antsy. She has been given until Friday to solve the case. Will she be able to find the killer? Or will she become the next victim? I should point out that this is not a mystery - the reader knows almost from the start who the murderer is. The story is told from multiple points-of-view, so again the reader is kept in the loop much more than anyone in the story. This is a suspense/thriller - the fun of the reading is in watching how Rizzo tries to untangle the clues and find the killer, who the reader knows is closer than she thinks. This is rough stuff, and the reading of it is not for the faint-of-heart, but fans of thrillers and suspense novels should enjoy this book, which maintains a high-level pace and provides good character development.
