I’ve not read frassier of Anne Frasier ‘s books until this one but I will be reading more of her books to be sure! This was a harrowing, tension filled book that I could not put down. It grabbed my attention from the first sentence and the pace just kept getting faster and faster and faster, all the way until the very last word!
I had to keep myself from frawier the last few pages to read the last sentence! A sick, twisted love, but love all the same. A monster that seems almost normal upfront, but behind their dark eyes lays a daemon that has no issues spilling blood of those he thinks are in the wrong.
I am NOT a fan of babies and children being hurt in stories but the author did a really good job of not making this story a gruesome tale where the babies were involved.
I give you kuddos for that Miss Anne Frasier. Hush will leave you sad and engrossed all at once and the story flows nicely to keep you hanging until the very end. What you think you have figured out may not be how things really are.
My favorite kind of story telling!! For me to give a review on this one is very hard, as there are many layers of characters inter-twining and jumping to the past for pack stories. View all 11 comments. Oct 21, Susan May rated it it was amazing Shelves: I love serial killers. I love reading about them. I love writing them. Anne Frasier released the thriller Hush ftasier and it went on to become a bestseller alongside many other bestsellers among her 24 books published so far.
The Madonna Murders as the press have named the killings is drasier again after a break of almost two decades. He brutally and mercilessly kills mothers and their babies.
And now it seems the killer is back. Ivy Dunlap, the only survivor of the Madonna killer, her son murdered by the killer, comes back to assist with this new outbreak of killings.
Meanwhile, Max is also dealing with his teenage son, Ethan, who has changed in recent months and become distant from his father.
The twists and turns and view into the mind of the killer are intriguing and the characters wonderfully imagined. This is a story about a particularly horrifying killer; killing babies is a terrible spectacle, even in words.
However, Frasier handles this well and with respect. If you love your thrillers dark and absorbing, HUSH has got to be your next read. I picked this up for 99p on a kindle daily deal-decided to read a sample first though as I often do! As soon as the sample had finished I downloaded the full book and just kept reading!
I got goosebumps as I realised I had found another author I had never really heard of but knew that I had to investigate their entire backlog of books asap! It was the same as when I read my first Lisa Gardner novel, who also gives this book a great boost with her comments on the front cover.
Ivy Dunlap lives a qu I picked this up for 99p on a kindle daily deal-decided to read a sample first though as I often do!
Ivy Dunlap lives a quiet life with her cat Jinx, until a phone call drawers her back to Chicago, the scene of a horrific crime that may just be linked to Ivys past. The Madonna Murderer failed to claim Ivy 16 years ago but it looks like he is back in business. I devoured this book! I loved it so much! The psycho serial killer, who’s voice we get to hear far more than usual in this type of suspense was thoroughly chilling.
It wasn’t a “romantic suspense” but I loved Ivys friendship with Max, and to a lesser extent Abraham, who came across just right-a hard working man trying to balance being father to a teenager and all the drama that comes with that!
I thought the end was brilliant-the last page especially, chilled me to the bone. Off to download more of Anne Frasier now and just hope they live up to Hush! Criminal Profiler Ivy Dunlap is a sole survivor, having been moved into witness protection and given a new identity; she resurfaces at the request of the police to aide in the hunt to catch the killer some years after surviving the attempt on her life.
I liked the almost covert way Ivy was instilled into the investigation while keeping her true identity secret – you could see how this affected her with much of her action being driven by the constant pressure to maintain this false identity.
HUSH is a crime thriller, one that has all the hallmarks of the popular genre of modern crime fiction; unfortunately that includes some filler content and inconsequential scenes of semi domestic life and two dimensional character building. This review first appeared on my blog: Jun 08, Lisa rated it really liked it. Fast moving with good character development. Serial killer with mother-son complex.
Some cursing and graphic details, but not out of place. Not well edited as noted several typo’s but didn’t detract from the story. Couldn’t put it down. This is the first book I’ve read by Anne Frasier and now won’t be my last. Aug 21, Betsy rated it really liked it Shelves: Second book I read by this author. Will not be my last. So glad to find a new author that hooks me in writer away. Sep 23, Laura Elisabeth rated it really liked it Shelves: The mothers weren’t virgins, they were whores.
He was the untouched virgin. He was the immaculate birth.

On the streets of Chicago, there is a serial killer amongst us. He preys on every mothers deepest fear – the loss of her child. The Madonna Murder has resurfaced, getting smarter and more cunning with each victim, and its up to Detective Max Irving, along with Criminal Profiler Ivy Dunlap to stop him.
I love the cover for this book, it instantly draws you in. If you enjoy serial kille The mothers weren’t virgins, they were whores. If you enjoy serial killer books you will love this one. The Madonna Murderer, is nicknamed for his urges to slaughter mothers and their sons, and then leave a Madonna dollar store snow globe by their bodies.
We get to delve into his mind, and see the disturbing relationship he has with his own mother, and try to unravel the knots in understanding why he is the way he is. I’ve never read anything by Anne Fraiser before, but I really enjoyed her writing style.
It flows well and is easy to read. The plot is original and is totally absorbing, with twists and turns all the way through. The main characters are well developed and this applies to the minor characters too, you find yourself caring and rooting for them, I particularly liked Regina and wished she could have been explored more.
There is a tense climax reaching the frawier of the book, with a powerful finish. I know some people are not fond of ‘tying thing up’ but Fraiser does it in a way that still leaves you guessing and wanting to find out that all important question All in all, a great little book, that I would highly recommend, four stars!
Hush begins when Ivy is called to be a profiler on a case she knows very well. It started sixteen years ago, and it seems the killer frawier back again.
