Inhaltsangabe zu „The Body Reader“ von Anne Frasier

For three years, Detective Jude Fontaine was kept from the outside world. Held in an underground cell, her only contact was with her sadistic captor, and reading his face was her entire existence. Learning his every line, every movement, and every flicker of thought is what kept her alive. After her experience with isolation and torture, she is left with a fierce desire for justice—and a heightened ability to interpret the body language of both the living and the dead. Despite colleagues’ doubts about her mental state, she resumes her role at Homicide. Her new partner, Detective Uriah Ashby, doesn’t trust her sanity, and he has a story of his own he’d rather keep hidden. But a killer is on the loose, murdering young women, so the detectives have no choice: they must work together to catch the madman before he strikes again. And no one knows madmen like Jude Fontaine.

    The Body Reader

    This is one of the best thrillers I've read in a very long time! With an original plot and unique characters this definitely stands out among the mass of titles available in that genre. The writing was superb and made reading the story a real pleasure.I liked the characters very much - both flawed, both struggling to cope with their individual fates and also struggling to find a way to work together as partners. I was glad that the return of the 'Body Reader' to her old position at the police department was not understood, and that her colleagues were in doubt about her fast recovery. It made the whole scenario believable, as well as the partnership Jude and Uriah slowly built in their work together.It was fascinating to see Jude struggle with her lack of emotions while at the same time being tormented with the emotions of those around her, especially her partner, which she experienced much more intensive as others. At the same time, it was interesting to see how Uriah often tried to hide his feelings, knowing Jude could read him like an open book.'The Body Reader' is an excellent example of a character-driven book, and while the crime was shocking and the following investigation suspenseful, the real focus was on the development of Jude and Uriah into a team. Highly recommended!(I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review)
