#BookReview: The Poet (Samantha Jazz Series #1) by @lisareneejones

Synopsis: New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones brings a fresh, modern take to the thriller genre that will keep you guessing until the very end.

The poet is a liar who always speaks the truth.” -Jean Cocteau

Some call him friend or boss.
Some call him husband or dad.
Some call him son, even a favorite son.

But the only title that matters to him is the one the media has given him: The Poet.

A name he earned from the written words he leaves behind after he kills that are as dark and mysterious as the reason he chooses his victims.

One word, two, three, a story in a poem, a secret that only Detective Samantha Jazz can solve. Because he’s writing this story for her.

She just doesn’t know it yet.


Rating: 💫💫💫💫💫
My Review: Where is my movie? This edge of your seat thriller is one that I need a movie to ASAP! If you love things like Law and Order or Chicago PD then this one is going to knock your socks off because it was just that good. I am so glad that this is a series because I need more. 


"The Poet is a nail biting read, filled with suspense and turns that will leave readers second-guessing." -Nikki S., Goodreads

"I was absorbed with this thrilling police-procedural and the captivating characters right up to the riveting ending. I can't wait to read the next in the series." -The Eclectic Review

"Lisa Renee Jones wrote exactly what I was looking for. An amazing thriller that pulled me in, kept me reading, and turning pages. The Poet is one of the best thrillers I have read in a very long time." -A Soccer Mom's Book Blog

"Dark and gritty, this thriller has secrets, not just about the killer, but of those around Jazz, that she learns as she probes deeper into who the killer is and stop him before he kills and draws an "U" on his next "undeserving' victim." -Pamela K., Goodreads

"A word of warning: Don't finish this book at bedtime because it will be hard to fall asleep!" -Linda J., Goodreads

"A clever and frightening thriller. I couldn't put this one down. This is a series to follow and I am looking forward to the next one!" -Just Book Talk

"This was exceptionally well-plotted and intriguing, I thought I had it solved but was so very, very wrong.  Lisa Renee Jones is quite the storyteller.  Her plot and storylines were smooth and full of red herrings and Easter eggs as well as being well-crafted and intricately nuanced.  Her characters were complicated, compelling, and an odd assortment of potential suspects." -Books and Bindings Blog
