Book Review: 22918

22918 by Kimberly A. Bettes: Lester Wine is a serial killer. Having brutally murdered dozens of women, he serves out his final days on death row. As his execution date nears, he recounts his story to a young journalist and budding author, telling every gory detail of his life and of the crimes he committed, all while fantasizing about the chance to do them one more time.

*For mature audiences only.

Lori's thoughts: I'm so glad I found this gem. I love the way the author wrote it. I thought the story was believable and entertaining. I saw the book on Facebook and started stalking... er following Kimberly A. Bettes. I read the excerpt on Amazon and was hooked. I had a really hard time putting this book down.

The book is written in the form of an interview, but it's more like the killer talks about all of his victims, starting with the very first one when he was a young boy. There's not a lot of dialogue. There's not a lot of anything about the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. It wasn't overly gruesome and gory, because that's not how Lester liked to kill his victims.

Of course I tend to have a morbid curiosity about this sort of thing. I love watching shows about serial killers. Having it be told about someone in Missouri makes it more interesting for me somehow. Especially when I know someone who actually works at Potosi!

Well done! I look forward to reading more by this author.
