Kathryn Casey is perhaps best known for her non-fiction, true crime writings, here she tries her hand at fiction in the account of Sarah Armstrong, a single mother, profiler and member of Texas’ most elite group of law men, the Texas Rangers.
The murder of a megawealthy businessman and his mistress leads local police to the man’s wife, Sarah sees the work of a serial killer. As other similar murders occur, it appears she is right but she finds herself the object of the killer’s obsession. As she gets close to solving the case, the madmen closes in on her and those close to her.
Singularity features a feisty, funny, and tough heroine and a truly creepy killer, as it races along to a chilling and unexpected climax.
I have been a fan of Kathryn Casey’s true crime books and was interested in see how she did with a fictional account. Her solid writing skills shine through, and while I cannot say I loved it, I did like it and would recommend it to others. Characters are well drawn and the plot is believable, no wild twists but the increasing depravity of the killer becomes apparent before a pulse raising conclusion. A conclusion that hints there will be more Sarah Armstrong novels. We can only hope and pray and beg.
