BRIGUELLA entails the character of a chameleon, that is adaptable to different circumstances. The book of the namesake, by VICKI FITZGERALD, derives a somewhat similar impression of the protagonist.
A town is being haunted and hunted by a serial killer, targeting women who entail certain characteristics. The serial killer has chameleon like traits. He seamlessly blends into his environment, without leaving a trace of his whereabouts. A detective and a press reporter collaborate in order to catch the culprit terrorizing their town. The killer, angered by their actions, makes his quest personal by going after their family. It’s a race against time to identify and catch the killer before one of them end up being dead.
This is the story of emotions, overcoming past; and most of all, trying to catch ghost of a perpetrator. The characters are shown to be going through their personal dilemmas. A serial killer who is ruthless in his ways and won’t stop until he is stopped by an external force. A detective who’s job is on the line and carrying loads of guilt. A reporter, whose life is turning to ashes in front of her. The story is a labyrinth of suspense and chasing a shadow, with full of action and adrenaline rush.
The author has written the book in such a way so as to keep the readers on their toes and leave them guessing what next. The characters created by the author are relatable and manage to garner sympathy from the audience. A book with serial killer at its center is full of surprises and this book delivers just the same. So for a weekend of suspense, adrenaline rush and action, give ‘Briguella’ a go and you won’t be disappointed.
