The Killed Conscience

The Killed Conscience
Still at the beginning of her career, investigative journalist Emilee Weathers is desperate for the perfect story and doesn’t care how she has to get it. When she’s asked to assist in a convicted serial killer’s appeal, it almost seems the perfect story has come banging at her door. But not long after arriving to the mountain town of Pigeon Forge, Emilee discovers the body of another, more recent victim. With the body showing signatures…


I manage to read this book until 5 am. I'm still trying to figure out how I managed to read through it. The story centers on Emilee, an investigative journalist living in Texas. The story started out strong, but from there was a series of "are you kidding me". Emilee gets a call that sets her on a path to make or break her career. She doesn't immediately jump at the chance, but eventually takes it.

From Texas to Tennessee, Emilee meets up with old friends and creates new enemies. The pace of the book was never slow, it was the telling of the story. Jordan did a great job at keeping the killer hidden, but it's not hard to figure out who the killer is before it's announced.

The book didn't end the way I expected it too. What I couldn't get over was how Emilee varied between being headstrong and weak at the same time. I get it, her situation wasn't idea and she knew it.

The problem I had was with the boyfriend. I couldn't understand or see how she could deal with him. Even her two best friends didn't care for him and seriously had their doubts.

 

The takeaway from this, check your backseat and don't trust everything you see, take it at face value.
