Book Review: Judgement: A Cassidy & Spenser Thriller #1 (Cassidy & Spenser #1)
Title: Judgement: A Cassidy & Spenser Thriller #1 (Cassidy & Spenser #1)
Author: Carey Baldwin
Stars: 5 out of 5
I picked up this book for free on Amazon because it sounded interesting but soon found other books that took me away from this book. Monday I came across the book again and thought why not.
What kept me from reading this fast moving psychological thriller I have no idea.
From beinging to you the reader is pulled in so many different direction each one darker than the next until the reader and Dr. Cassidy are discovering the truth together.
Judgement is a captivating story that has everything a reader could want and more in a psychological thriller.
Carey Baldwin paints a very Bones type of relationship between Dr. Catlin Cassidy and FBI agent Atticus Spenser. There is sexual attraction but the readers are kept waiting as they work together to find a killer. I loved that Agent Spenser was ADD and had difficultly keeping his mind from wondering. Carey Baldwin make the Special Agent very human and not the typical Alpha Male.
Catlin is struggling as she discovers the truth about her father and her past.
The book can get a little wordy but it makes up for the suspenseful scenes and the very end of the book.
In a nutshell this book is entertaining psychological thriller and I can't wait for more.
I still have no idea what a forensic psychiatrist is.
When a coed falls prey to a sadistic killer, forensic psychiatrist Dr. Caitlin Cassidy and Special Agent Atticus Spenser are called in to testify—one for the defense, one for the prosecution. With warring approaches on justice, these two rivals have been butting heads for years—both in the courtroom and out. And at first, this case appears to be no different.
But when a brutal attack leaves the accused man dead and Caity in critical condition, petty differences take a backseat to saving lives. As the lone survivor, Caity knows too much and the killer—a madman calling himself the Man in the Maze—is coming back for round two. Now, Caity and Spense must join forces to uncover the killer’s identity before Caity’s time—and luck—runs out.
