The Hangman


Julia Vargas is a cop with a mission. When sheโ€™s not chasing down bad guys, Julia dedicates her time to investigating the Hangman serial killerโ€ฆthe same unsolved case that her father, Jim Vargas, was working on when he supposedly shot and killed himself three decades before. While rumors continue to swirl around her fatherโ€™s death, Julia attempts to hunt down the truth.

The case once again hits dangerously close, however, when a womanโ€™s bones are discovered in a historic downtown home, together with a photograph of Jim and Julia as a young girl. As horrifying as this discovery is, it may just be the break Julia has waited for. Working alongside Tobias Novak, a homicide detective with whom she shares a complicatedโ€”and steamyโ€”history, sheโ€™s forced to confront her own past even as the Hangman looms in the shadows. But as the mysterious killer circles closer, Julia can feel her own noose begin to tightenโ€ฆ

the hangman book thoughts

The truth? I couldn’t figure out the perpetrator until towards the end of the book. I’ve been reading nonstop since I start reading this book. I’ve been smiling, cursing and guessing while reading it. Feel very complicated while reading when the truth starts to unfold. The real naked truth or the truth that’s being told by others? I like Mary Burton’s writing. She’ll give you a direction to look forward then she’ll steer you towards other direction. Then she’ll drop some bombs on your lap when she exposes the truth. I really enjoy the book and pace.ย 

This is not your normal romantic suspense book where you’ll have the love romance scenes. Julia is a woman who’s been through a lot and she’s someone not easy to get close to. So our Detective Novak really took the time to break down those walls for her. Sit back and relax.ย
