While Galileo Preys

By:  Joshua Corin


That the message discovered atop an elementary school in downtown Atlanta. Across the street, the bodies of fourteen innocent men and women, each quickly and cleanly murdered. The sniper Galileo is on the loose. He can end a human life from hundreds of yards away. And he has just begun.

Where others see puzzles, Esme Stuart sees patterns, and these outside-the-box inductive skills made her one of the FBI's top field operatives. When she worked for the Bureau. But she turned her back on that dark abyss eight years ago to start a family and live a normal life. She now has a husband and a daughter and a Long Island house to call her own.

But as Galileo's murders escalate, her beleaguered old boss needs the help of his former protégé. But is Esme willing to jeopardize her new perfect life - which she has certainly earned...

The whole time I was reaing this book I was thinking it would make an excellent movie.  A kind of violent and bloody movie, but a really intriguing movie regardless.  It was jam packed with all kinds of action.  It was a really cool story with a scary twist at the end.

I really liked the characters in this book.  I thought Tom was really interesting.  If Clint Eastwood was about 20 years younger I think he would be perfect for the role.  I could see him throwing on a leather jacket and climbing on a motorcycle!  As a working mom, I really felt for Esme being so torn between the two things she felt like she should be doing.

This book is being published Sept 1.  I'd definitely recommend it if you like murder mysteries, political mysteries, serial killer mysteries, anything along those lines. 

**I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest exchange which I have provided.  I was not compensated in any other way.**

This does sound like a good movie and who knows? But, I'm not a serial killer fan. Is he a mass murderer or is he the sneak in your house and kill you kind. Don't like those kind. Not a Halloween, Friday the 13th or Nightmare on Elm Street person cause they NEVER DIE!

Plus I lived in Florida and it just seemed we had more than our fair share of serial killers. Anything else. sniper, kidnapper, mass murder, terrorist, I can handle.
