Mortal Gods by Anne Griffith will raise all of the hairs on the back of your neck when you read it. Step into Albuquerque, New Mexico where expectant Mothers are being tortured, mutilated and their babies taken. Peter Kostas, the Detective attached to the case, has been chasing the monster who has been committing these crimes for over a year, but he can not seem to get the final clues he needs to catch the beast. No one seems to know who the victims are or where they have come from until Lillian Martin, a gifted paramedic, manages to keep one of the women alive. The woman does not remember much, but she has a self medication port sticking out of her where the baby once was. What does it all mean?
Anne Griffith has created a story with so many twists and turns you can not possibly know where it is going to take you next. The quality of the writing only seems to add to the depth of the mystery that has been created. The villain truly is a vile beast that you will find yourself utterly hating, and on the flip side you will be fully rooting for the very likable Peter and Lillian. When I am reading a thriller or a crime novel these are the emotions I want to feel. I want to hate the villain and love the heroes, no lines of grey. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good thriller as long as you are not squeamish.
