Hunting Down the Moon

A Review of Huntress Moon by Alexandra Sokoloff

A Netgalley book

I found this quite a sinister book.

I also thought it an interesting device to write the story over one week.

I do know about the BAU from many years of watching Criminal Minds on TV and the 2 types of female serial killers: the Black Widow and the Angel of Death, but there are more types it seems.

This female serial killer does have one signature though – when she kills with a razor – which is her preferred method – she first slashes the right of the neck and then the left. Forensic pathology can determine this. Assuming that they manage to put together all her kills and identify them as hers. – so they should look for the method of killing rather than the black sleeveless  turtle neck.angel of death

Checking out female serial killers on the Internet, I found that they tended to kill for 3 major reasons: money, revenge and / or insanity. That said Buzzle.com listed 8 reasons why females kill in order of occurrence.

  1. Angel of Death;
  2. Black Widow;
  3. Sexual Predator;
  4. Avenger;
  5. Partner in Crime;
  6. Profit motive or Crime;
  7. Insane possibility;
  8. Unknown – as unexpected or random.

I give this book 4 stars and have started reading the next book in the series.
