Book Review ~ 'You Will Suffer' By Alexandra Ivy


The rolling fields outside Curry, Oklahoma, are a beautiful spot to ramble on an early spring day . . . and a lonely place to die. Among the prairie grass and wildflowers, a killer kneels beside a curled-up figure, plunging a syringe beneath skin to deliver the fatal dose. And as the victim’s last breath mingles with the air, it sends a warning out to the world: This is just the beginning.


Rejecting her judge father’s prestigious connections, Ellie Guthrie opened her own law firm in Curry. But something strange is going on. Ellie’s tires are slashed. Dead rats are dumped on her patio. Her neighbor, former FBI agent Nate Marcel, insists on watching out for her. And then bodies begin turning up—supposed overdoses that Nate suspects are something much more sinister.


There’s a killer in town, toying with her, drawing both Ellie and Nate into a web of murder and vengeance. To find answers, she’ll have to unearth this small community’s dark and twisted past . . . before it’s her turn to die.

Purchase Links:

I have never read any of this author's books before but the synopsis sounded interesting so I was willing to give this book a chance. 

The plot is good and it is entertaining enough, a small town crime novel, with a serial killer thrown in to grab your interest. 

However, it did not keep me riveted. The pace and predictability made this more of a take it or leave it than a must read for me. 

I received an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
