Paint it All Red – Mindf*ck #5 – S.T. Abby

Things did not end well in the last book. Logan, the FBI agent found out that his girlfriend Lana is the serial killer he’s been looking for but she managed to escape after he handcuffed her naked to the bed.

WARNING! Do not read this if you have not read the previous books. It also contains some disturbing subject matter.

I thought it was creepy that he found out she was the serial killer, went and had rough sex with her and then handcuffed her to the bed. Thankfully, he admitted in this book that he was wrong in doing that.

This book started out with Logan and his team trying to solve the original murders from ten years ago that happened in Delaney Grove. They believe that will lead them to solving the current revenge murders except three of the team already know that Lana is the revenge killer. Logan, Hadley and Leonard haven’t shared what they know because they have seen the corruption  from the sheriff of the town who controls everything from restaurants to the cable company.

The sheriff, with the help of SSA Johnson wrongly convicted Lana’s father for the murders of a series of women including the sheriff’s own daughter. They manufactured evidence and paid off the crooked judge. Then they brutally murdered Lana’s father in his cell and forced the coroner to say it was a suicide.

But that wasn’t the worst of everything. The sheriff sent his psychotic son along with twelve others to rape and murder Lana and her brother right in the middle of the street. The townspeople just closed their doors and windows and let it happen. They were left for dead but made it to a hospital a few towns away. Her brother died but Lana, whose name was Victoria back then, survived. With the help of her best friend, Jake, she took the identity of a rich heiress who died in that hospital the same night and switched bodies so no one would know Victoria survived. Whew! I hope I explained that okay.

Lana and Jake aren’t done with their revenge but Jake worries that Lana will end up just another statistic of a revenge killer going the way of suicide by cop or losing her soul now that she no longer has Logan’s love to live for.

I have to admit, even though some of the events in this final book were showy and unbelievable, I still enjoyed it.
