Corktown Summary

They locked him up seven years ago. He’s still killing.

Executives from Detroit’s automakers are being mutilated, and all signs point to a serial killer known as the Doctor. But there’s a problem with that. Detroit Police put him away a long time ago.

Fiery FBI agent Abby Kane is tasked with figuring out how this madman can kill again. When she visits the Doctor behind bars, he swears he’s innocent and not the psychopath everyone thinks he is. Oddly enough, Abby believes him.

To prove the Doctor’s innocence, Abby investigates the case that put him behind bars and discovers evidence of a cover-up. She soon finds herself marked as enemy number one by the city’s power players. Even the executives who are being targeted by the killer want her silenced. The pressure only intensifies when Abby believes the real killer is connected to the automakers. Can Abby untangle the web of lies before she’s silenced for good?

If you like Patterson, Cornwell, and Baldacci, you’ll love the equally thrilling and highly addictive Abby Kane series.

Meet Abby Kane
She spent her early career putting sickos, psychopaths, and ruthless killers behind bars. After her husband's mysterious death, Abby moved her family to San Francisco, hoping for a fresh start and healing. What she got instead was a job with the FBI and a directive to solve their most baffling cases.

Corktown3 star

All in all an interesting story, but Abby Kane is a misfit, nasty, and what’s with everyone always getting on her nerves. She always wants to punch someone. And when a Bimbo who introduces herself in a narcissistic manor to someone she expects to answer her questions of course they don’t want. This character has absolutely no redeeming characteristics, looks like FBI are a bunch of bullies and idiots, which, for the most part, they are not. Like the story, not lead as is.35

When I was asked to pay again after iBooks crashed, AGAIN, like is does several times while using. Perhaps I should have gone with a Kindle after all. Hope to finish but I’m not going to pay for a book I already had.55

This is the first book I’ve ever read on a device and coincidentally my first thriller. I was hooked. The storyline and characters comedic’s seemed overdrawn at times, but I didn’t let it bother me and enjoyed the story for what it is. It took just a couple days to read through which is quick for me. I feel like this book really works in digital format it’s light, entertaining and putting aside the grotesque elements of many situations a fun read. TY35


Suspensful even knowing the killer3 star

Although you’re told who the killer is, it still left you guessing what will happen next. Decently written, the ending could’ve been more, and too many people died. But great book!!35

Another action packed thrilled by Ty Hutchinson. I love his main character, Abby. Maybe she isn’t perfect, but darn close to it. This author has a way of pulling you in and simply doesn’t let go. Can you say “hooked”!!55
