Purified by Elizabeth S. Sullivan

5 stars

(Excerpt from Goodreads) When a mutilated body of an African American girl is found in a park sandbox, the media shows no interest. Instead, their attention is riveted on the disappearance of Olivia Safra, a college student and only child of the powerful and dangerous Richard Safra. Suspended ADA, Beck Oldman, demoted to a rookie PI is assigned her first cases to find a missing teenager and Olivia Safra.

Leads connect the murders to the Safra case. The investigation into her client’s private life reveals a dark side in the relationship between a father and daughter and exacts his wrath against Beck. More girls are found murdered, putting Beck in a race to stop a serial killer and stop her own client from destroying her

PURIFIED is a thrilling story that explores many dark subjects, including what it does to those who have to live in the world of killers in order to stop them.

Beck Oldman is a disbarred attorney that is trying to make amends by working as a PI. But Beck is a mess both emotionally and physically. She is assigned to look into the disappearance of teenagers. But the deeper she digs, the more connections she finds to other disappearances. The question is if she can catch the serial killer before her own time gets cut short.

This is one dark story. As I was reading I figured that there would be you usual murdered girls, a serial killer with some sick plot, and Beck being in the sights of that serial killer. That would over simplifying this story. There are layers upon layers of sick stuff happening and damaged Beck is the right person to discover the truth.

This is a great, messed up story. It’s scary to think that things like this happen in stories but even worse when you think about how it happens in real life. If you want a great thriller, you have found your book.

Mind Over Bullies


Mind Over Bullies: A Mob Forms by D.K. Smith

5 stars

(Excerpt from Goodreads) Margo is pretty, popular and unsympathetic to just how intense bullying can get. As a counterfeiting plot sweeps through the city of Oak View, life for Margo will change dramatically.

With a mystery unfolding, an unlikely group of heroes emerges. Bullied teens love them, the police hate them and bullies fear them. Together they will try to get to the bottom of the counterfeiting mystery while ingeniously teaching a few bullies a lesson or two along the way… that is, if the police don’t catch them first.

There are two parts to this story. The first one is bullying. A lot of people get bullied, especially in school and some of the things that happen in Mind Over Bullies happen every day for some people. The second part is a counterfeiting ring. Margo is a journalism student that knows bullying happens but thinks herself above it. But she gets her eyes opened when she starts looking into the counterfeiting.

I liked the mystery of the counterfeiting. It was a great way to keep the story moving without being drug down by too much emphasis on bullying. I really like how Margo goes from the top of the social food chain to those that get bullied. I also liked how everyone had their own personality that stood out from the rest.

I admit that I am one of the people that had to deal with bullying personally in school and I admit that I get a little wound up when the topic comes up. I really like how the MOB worked to help those bullied even though they had some advanced technology that many don’t get to use. But I still liked how this part of the story played out.

I really like Mind Over Bullies. This is a great story that anyone can read. There was good action and mystery and some people getting their just desserts. This is one book that I recommend everyone read.
