A Piece of You by D. M. Annechino Book Tour Review and Giveaway

Book # 1 - Book Description for They Never Die Quietly:
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.

Book # 2 - Book description for Resuscitation:
Two years ago, Detective Sami Rizzo narrowly escaped a brush with death at
the hands of a serial killer. After apprehending the killer and bringing
him to justice, this life-changing event compels her to resign from the
police force. In her heart of hearts, however, she struggles with the
decision. But a second serial killer—a well- respected doctor gone
astray—uses his charm to seduce his victims and then performs horrific
surgical experiments on them. In a final act of depravity, he scatters
their mutilated bodies throughout San Diego County. Feeling a sense of
duty and obligation, Sami Rizzo appeals to the police chief and mayor,
and they reinstate her as a homicide investigator. As the body count
grows and the killer’s experiments become more and more brutal, Sami
follows one dead-end lead after another, while trying to deal with a
sickly mother and a turbulent relationship with her lover. But then the
killer makes a crucial mistake: one of his victims survives. Sami does
everything to protect the barely alive victim, but the killer has a
different plan.

Book #3 - Book Description for A Piece of You:

HomicidenDetective Sami Rizzo is at it again! She never dreamed “America’s
Finest City,” would be tormented by yet another serial killer, but for
the third time in the last five years a depraved maniac is stalking the
streets of San Diego. Based on her qualifications and prior successes
dealing with multiple murders, who else would Captain Davison assign to
head the investigation?

Different from Sami’s past experiences, this fanatic is like no other. His
methods of killing defy everything profilers think they know about
serial killers. As an intense investigation begins and bits and pieces
of evidence emerge, no one can understand his motivation. He’s merciful,
yet brutal. And just to make things even more confusing, all of his
victims are blood-related. Is he settling a vendetta? Did he randomly
pick a name out of the phone book and begin a rampage? Or is there a
deeper story?

Based on very little evidence and a lot of gut instincts, Detective Rizzo
pieces together a complex puzzle and narrows the field of possible
suspects. She learns that the killings may connect in some way to
powerful people within the judicial system and doesn’t know who to
trust. Ultimately, she comes face to face with the killer for a battle
of brain and brawn. Can she outwit the shrewd killer, or will she be his
next victim?

My review,  "A Piece of You":

"A Piece of You" is part of A Sami Rizzo Thriller series by author D.M. Annechino. Sami Rizzo is a Homicide Detective who finds herself going after a serial killer again. Another maniac is killing people in San Diego. Captain Davison has picked her to be the leader to solve this crime because she has the experience that they need to find this killer. Right away Sami realizes that this time it will be a lot harder to find the suspect because this person is not acting like a normal serial killer. All of the evidence they have found is not helping at all. Then they find out that all of the people that have been killed are from the same family. Does the killer know his victims well or not at all? As Detective Rizzo finds a little more out about the murders she realizes that this may involve people with power and she does not know where to take her suspicions without putting herself in danger. What is going to happen when and if she finally solves the crime and finds the killer. Will she be able to keep herself alive or be the next one to be killed? This story was filled with a lot of suspense that will keep the reader guessing. I was at the edge of my seat more than once.  I give this book a 5/5. I was given this book for a review and all opinions are mine.
