A Born Victim by R.P. Rochford (Review By Ruby)


**Review By Ruby From The Nerd Girl Page**

*This Book Was Given To Me In Exchange For An Honest Review*

I loved this book! There was a sense of impending doom hanging over me all the way through it that kept me turning pages – Mostly because I read the title and then I met Gill who screams victim from the get go. It was just a matter of time.

Gill Brogan is an unremarkable single mother of two. She had cruel parents and a cruel ex-husband. She has worked hard her entire life to provide for her children but with little success. She is constantly bullied and taken advantage of because of her submissive and shy demeanour. Naturally she is targeted…

As you read Gill Brogans story the book flicks to the perspectives of Cyber Crime Investigator Mike Watson and Police Investigator, DS Lucy Taylor. These two are investigating the deaths of several missing women who have turned up dead, having been tortured within an inch of their lives. The men responsible are neat and organized monsters; they never leave any evidence behind. Mike soon discovers a well hidden trail of disturbing footage on the internet. It becomes apparent that footage of the crimes done to these women is being sold online to those who will pay to watch it. It seems as though the investigators are being mocked by these criminals who continuously evade their efforts to find them.

As you read you know that at some point Gills story is going to collide with the crime investigation which makes it nerve wracking and addictive. You’re constantly waiting for something to happen and wondering who the criminals are. Knowing that at least one person she interacts with must be one of the men that have been murdering these women for online entertainment. I often found myself yelling ‘Don’t drink that!’ and ‘Don’t go in there you idiot!’ And for all my guessing games the plot always surprised me!

This book is brilliantly written, incredibly believable and touches on some heavy issues. If you like crime novels you’ll love this but it’s not for the faint-hearted.
