Review: Gingerbread Man

Gingerbread Man Gingerbread Man by Lee Strauss
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

3.5 stars, rounded to 3 - not 4, as I think, it could have been more suspenseful and not as much convenient deux ex machina's (or coincidences).
Also, it had a love triangle, more or less.
Alternating POV between chapters, which where very well done, if you like such things.
The one major twist in this book I did not see coming, not having read any spoilers or reviews.
As usual I will not mention it, so as not to spoil it for others.
The main situation and people are very well written, and I liked them a lot, with the conflicts of who to like, love, dislike and who to suspect as a villain. Setting is the University of Detroit, with a serial rapist / killer. You have been warned, but is not very graphic, nor bloody.
Also good use of technology: Computers, mobile phones (ok could have been more).
Recommended as a fast read, and do not pay too much for it, it was a serial (3 parts?), and I snatched it for free, as a short novel-omnibus-of-the first 1-3 series. Will certainly read the next books sometimes.
