One thought on “Killer in Control”

  1. -Dialogue is stiff and unrealistic.-Main character is very unbelievable as a police officer - she's afraid of everything. She is also quite fickle, all worried about someone but then allowing them to fawn over her. I found her to be incredibly annoying.

  5. The setting in Key West was fun, but the dialogue is super stiff, people don't really talk like that. Especially not Conchs, a special breed of people who are the epitome of laid back island cool. The protagonist is a cop on leave, and she wasn't believable at all. She's a police officer, and when faced with a scary situation she runs and screams. All the female law enforcement officers I've ever met have been tough as nails. They have to be. So, not to go pounding the feminist drum, but this wi [...]
