"The Fisherman's Lily" by Suzanne Spiegoski is an exciting thriller that stars a New York detective named Lily Dietz as she hunts for the serial killer who knows more about her than she thinks. The author demonstrates extraordinary flair for creating a nail-biting suspense while exploring a methodical and cunning serial killer. The Fisherman's Lily is told with a strong voice. The dialogue is about perfect and images are a real treat. Apart from her male partner (he was very unlike-able) the characters are well-written - they are memorable and intriguing. Its hard to be unaffected by the writers descriptions - poetic even in the most horrible scenes. Seeing these scenes through the character's eyes, we realize the depth and beauty of the author's mind. The story has a number of facets that work well together. All in all, it’s a really great book and I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good cat-and-mouse story.
