Chase Benton operates Serial Connections, a high tech company that utilizes both modern technology and psychics to catch serial killers. Chase and his team have state-of-the-art technology to help enhance their psychic abilities to solve crimes. Some of the team’s abilities, especially Chase’s have deep spiritual roots.
As this story gets going, Chase brings some people from the FBI in to work with the group at stopping some madmen. Chase quickly discovers that not all of them can be trusted. He also finds himself attracted to Seville who is very adept at her job. Seville is welcomed by the team and works really well with them. She is fascinated to see how the company operates and rapidly becomes one of them. As the murders continue the team finds their selves ready to sacrifice everything to stop them.
“Serial Connections” truly kept me sitting on the edge of my seat as I read it. Mark De Binder doesn’t just torture you with a story about one evil serial killer; he takes you into the dark worlds of three of them. The method that the serial killers use to silence their victims is always painful and gruesome. The action in this story is nonstop. I found myself unable to put the book down because I had to see what would happen next, and I was dying to know who all of the people were that were involved.
“Serial Connections” is definitely a book will be enjoyed by fans of thrillers. De Binder has developed a complex plot that will stretch your imagination into areas that you might not want it to go. That’s what makes it so fun. The incorporation of technology, psychic ability and spirituality makes the plot so much more exciting because it allows the characters to stretch themselves outside of the mundane world. I cannot wait to read forthcoming books in this series.
