wow, another amazing book from Chris Mooney, he has a fantastic way of grabbing your attention from the first page, I can t wait to readof his books Christopher Cole Chris Mooney is an American journalist, author and academic who focuses on science in politics He was born on September 20, 1977 in Mesa, Arizona, USA He graduated in English from Yale in 1999 and since 2010 has been a member of the board of the American Geophysical Union.
I cannot remember how I came across this book, but I am glad I did It is a different kind of crime fiction to that which I normally read The Secret Friend is a contemporary American crime fiction thriller It contains a bit of everything a serial killer, a corrupt ex FBI agent, a bad cop and a CSI The CSI is Darby McCormick she is the central protagonist She is pulled into the case of Emma Hale and finds there is a lack of evidence or explanation for why somebody would have snatched Emma, kept her alive for months, and then finally killed her.

Kisah Darby McCormick berlanjut, setelah kasus the treveler Buku Pertama The Missing, Darby McCormick 1 , kini Darby dihadapkan dalam kasus baru, setelah menghilang kurang lebih 8 bulan Emma Hale yang merupakan anak dari konglomerat Boston, Jonathan Hale, ditemukan telah menjadi mayat, jasadnya mengambang terbungkus plastik dengan luka tembakan dibelakang kepalanya Tetapi Emma bukanlah korban satu satunya, Judith Chen ditemukan juga dalam kondisi yang sama persis dengan Emma dan masing masing keduanya Emma dan Judith membawa patung Perawan Suci Maria disaku celana mereka Darby kini mendapatkan posisi baru, bukan hanya bekerja dalam Lab CSI, ia kini menjadi seorang Profiler bersama rekan baru Tim Byston.
Ditengah pemecahan kasus Emma dan Judith, Darby dikejutlah oleh hadirnya Malcolm Fletcher seorang ma è The Secret Friend ó Good on technical stuff, but thin on plot.
The characters aren t particularly strong or believable But if you suspend your disbelief the book rockets along at a good pace Fairly gory, and it felt overdone in places.
I can t say I d be rushing to pick up another novel by this author, but as it was given to me by a friend, I don t want to be too critical either.
I don t give out the 5 stars lightly I loved this book I read it in 2 days and could have read it straight through if had been allowed I enjoyed the plot, technical aspects and the characters as well I will be looking forof Chris Mooney s books for sure
O Amigo Secreto foi mais um livro, que enquanto n o acabei, n o houve descanso Dei muitas vezes comigo ansiosamente a contar os minutos que faltavam para poder novamente prosseguir a sua leitura Simplesmente fant stico, adorei e recomendo aos f s do policial thriller.
Malcolm Fletcher makes an appearance in this book and leads Darby and her team on a merry chase Or does he In his character and the way he leads them, I see glimpses of Hannibal playing psychological games with Clarice I don t have to tell you to expect the unexpected this seems to be a given with Chris Mooney I have to say it has been a while since I enjoyed the games an author plays with his readers as much as this Gripping read, that will not give you room to breathe.
