REVIEW: Hey there! If you are looking for a great Psychological Thriller, get yourself a copy of The Atonement Murders by Jennifer Ruff. This is actually book seven in the Agent Victoria Heslin Thriller series. You don’t have to worry about picking this book up without reading the other six. It will read well as a stand alone although it does refer back to her past and there are characters from the other books like her family and her fiance’ and co-workers. I haven’t read the first two books even though I do own them. I will!
This book was so good. It was fast paced and kept me turning the pages. Ms. Ruff does not give anything away before you need to know. She keeps you guessing right from the beginning on who, what, where, when and why. I kept trying to figure out who the murderer was and why. The clues were adding up but they didn’t go together like I thought they would. Genius!
I like Victoria Heslin. She is an FBI agent and as I’ve mentioned we do get to know her quite well as we go through the books. You will find yourself worried for her and rooting for her to find the last piece of the puzzle. She owns 7 greyhounds and the author has her own pack at home that helps her write her books.
So! Like I said, if you’re looking for a great book to keep you entertained and to lose yourself in, I would highly recommend reading this book. Then go back and read the first six! I know you’re gonna love the series as much as I do. Until next time…Happy Reading!

SYNOPSIS: Four murders. One shocking motive.
When detectives find the same message—THIS IS YOUR ATONEMENT—at the staged scenes of four seemingly unrelated homicides, FBI Special Agent Victoria Heslin must uncover the connection between them to identify the killer.
The crimes are scattered across the East Coast. The victims are in their late twenties: an All-Star NBA player, an investment banker, a dental hygienist, and a bartender.
Who is punishing them? What have they done? And who might be next?
Victoria delves into the victims’ pasts, traveling from Boston to Charlotte to the North Carolina mountains, unraveling the dark mystery that links the crimes. As the killer’s motive becomes clear, Victoria is in a race to the finish that she must not lose.
The Atonement Murders is book 7 in the award-winning Agent Victoria Heslin mystery-thriller series. Each of the books features a standalone investigation which concludes at the end.
