Book Review-Freak



Jennifer Hillier

Freak is my third Jennifer Hillier book and one which appears to be a sequel to Creep.  Many of the good guys, along with a bad gal, make a reprise in Freak.  Creep characters, Sheila, Maurice, Marianne and Jerry are all central characters in Freak, fast-moving and interesting story particularly as some it is set in a prison which was my last place of employment.


I thought the villain of Freak was fairly obvious.  However, each and every time I thought I had identified to the villain I was either incorrect or they turned up dead a few pages on.  I guess that makes me still incorrect. 


I enjoyed Freak, although I still think The Butcher is the pick of the three of Hillier’s books which I have read.  That said, Freak kept me guessing while The Butcher villain was obvious early on it was his methods and catching him which kept readers on edge.  And that, according to Doctor Google, is the difference between a mystery and a thriller.


However, the end of Freak was totally unexpected and one which has left the door wide open for a sequel.
