Book Review: Number 6 by Sharon L. Higacategories: Book, Thriller, Dark Action, Intriguing, Mystery, Suspense, Unique Twist, Supernatural
Sharon L. Higaabout this book: #6 is a supernatural thriller; a story about a young woman, Ida Moreno, who is raped and murdered in her apartment. At the time of her horrific death, her soul attaches itself to her killer - a person who, she discovers, has killed before and will kill again. Now, she knows who he his, but can she help the two detectives who are handling her case bring him to justice before he targets his next victim?
This work of fiction was actually inspired by a real murder in the 1970's; a case where one of two men who kidnapped, raped and murdered a nurse, when captured two years later, confessed to the killing because he said that he kept 'seeing' their victim everywhere and he couldn't handle it anymore. The police and media put it down to his conscience, but I asked myself this question: what if he really was seeing her and she was deliberately haunting him? Thus, #6 was born.
I always research my books - even though they are a work of fiction, I am a stickler in making sure that the facts in the story are accurate. Example: I research certain weapons used by my characters: particular makes and models of guns, how to make a homemade garrotte, actual locations, etc. there is nothing more aggravating to me than to pick up a book of fiction and find the location that is mentioned in the book is nowhere near where it is stated, or to find that something which supposedly happened at a particular time period could not have happened at all. So, for me, the devil is in the details and I try to be as accurate about the 'facts' in my story as possible.

Awesome BookI don't usually read anything horror related, but Sharon tells this story in such a way that it makes you feel like you are a part of it. I love the detective angle. [by Robin]
