Saving Mercy is the first book in Abbie Roads' Fatal Truths series, and is not for the faint-hearted! There is blood in this book, a lot of blood! Twenty years ago, Mercy was the only survivor in a horrific massacre. For reasons that become clear, Mercy is sectioned and spends most of those twenty years undergoing psychological 'help'. She has gained the ability of being able to know a person's intentions though, which can sometimes help her. Cain, who is Killion's son, has his own trauma to contend with. Following his upbringing, he has the ability to see the past through touching blood. He is using this ability to help the FBI by being their profiler. He can give them intimate details that no one else can. When murders start happening again, and Cain in painted in blood on walls, then Mercy and Cain end up trying to help each other, whilst staying alive.
Saving Mercy is dark and violent. There is love, but it's not easy. It is layered with intrigue and deceit, and you are not sure just who is who and whether they are a friend or enemy. These characters come alive as you read, and you care about them. It is exceptionally well written, with no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. The story isn't over yet, and I can't wait to find out more about Daught. A dark story, but an amazing one. Absolutely recommended by me.
