A historical science fiction novel featuring zombies and a strong female character kicking ass in pursuit of equality…uh, could the plot get any better?
A Deadly Influence is a well-written story that uniquely explores a possible cult conspiracy-based kidnapping in the age of social media. While I didn’t fall in love with the characters, I thoroughly enjoyed how Omen used their backgrounds to move the story forward. A highly entertaining read for my fellow booknerds who love a fast-paced mystery story full of murders, coverups, and a shocking ending.
A murder mystery story is always more enjoyable when everyone has something to hide. Sara Shepard has perfected the art of giving every character a syndicalist motive to murder, as demonstrated in Pretty Little Liars. And she did it again in Reputation.
