✱✱ Book Review ✱✱ Dead Girls by Graeme Cameron

Dead Girls 
by Graeme Cameron

I may not remember everything, but I know he won’t hurt anyone else.

I won’t let him. 

It’s been two months since a serial killer brutally attacked police detective Alisha Green and left her for dead. Two months since she could effortlessly recall simple things, since her mind felt remotely sound. The nameless killer thinks he knows her, thinks she’s just another dead girl among many. Ali Green plans to show him he’s dead wrong about that.

Ali has two enemies now: the dangerous man she’s hunting and her own failing memory. As explosive new evidence comes to light and conflicting accounts from a witness and a surviving victim threaten both her investigation and her credibility, she begins to question what is and isn’t real. And now Ali has no choice but to remember the past…before it buries her.

Momma Says: 1 star⭐

I love a good, gripping mystery and/or an edge of your seat thriller. Unfortunately, Dead Girls was neither. The blurb sounded so promising, and I got that our protagonist was suffering from some confusion and memory loss from her attack, However, when you have a main character that is already confused, a convoluted story may not be the best way to go. Between info dump style paragraphs, convos with little to no clarification as to who is speaking, and abrupt scene changes, it all became a jumbled mess. Add in the many characters and so much going on, and the effort it took to keep up with it all became more work than enjoyment. Thankfully, the story isn't overly lengthy, and while I considered giving up several times, I did finish in hopes that things would improve. In my humble opinion, they did not, and if I had to sum it up in one word, I would say busy - Dead Girls is incredibly busy. 
The beauty of reading is what drove me to distraction with this one may well be the very things that make someone else fall in love with it. So, if it sounds like your kind of thing, by all means, give it shot.
