Death Perfected is a work of murder mystery fiction, forensics, and fright, and was penned by author Nathan Wilson. Written for adults due to explicit content across the board of sex, death, and violence, this is the fourth book in the highly engaging but graphic Vivian Xu series. The series’ titular character is a forensic investigator, and in this installment, she is hot on the trail of the Fiend of Prague, a serial killer who twists and turns his victims until parts of them are no longer recognizable. Vivian calls on the help of Elijah Merrick, a psychiatrist, to help her unlock the mind of this fiend, but Merrick has plenty of secrets to uncover too.
Intense, graphic, shocking and wholly satisfying, this is a mystery to literally die for. Having read some of the earlier exploits of Vivian Xu, I can safely say the series has grown bigger and better since my last outing into her gruesome world of investigation. Author Nathan Wilson amps up the atmosphere and really fleshes out (pardon the pun) his characters and settings in this book, where the descriptions and action are compelling and highly engaging from chapter to chapter. The plot is solid, with excellent twists and well-timed turns that are sure to keep readers engaged, and the conclusions and surprises made good sense and led to a satisfying conclusion. Overall, Death Perfected is a wonderful addition to a bloodthirsty and very enjoyable murder mystery series: highly recommended for fans of horror, gore, and psychological intrigue.
