Review: Hanover House by Brenda Novak


Welcome to Hanover House….
Psychiatrist Evelyn Talbot has dedicated her life to solving the mysteries of the antisocial mind. Why do psychopaths act as they do? How do they come to be? Why don’t they feel any remorse for the suffering they cause? And are there better ways of spotting and stopping them? 
After having been kidnapped, tortured and left for dead when she was just a teenager—by her high school boyfriend—she’s determined to understand how someone she trusted so much could turn on her. So she’s established a revolutionary new medical health center in the remote town of Hilltop, Alaska, where she studies the worst of the worst. 
But not everyone in Hilltop is excited to have Hanover House and its many serial killers in the area. Alaskan State Trooper, Sergeant Amarok, is one of them. And yet he can’t help feeling bad about what Evelyn has been through. He’s even attracted to her. Which is partly why he worries. 
He knows what could happen if only one little thing goes wrong…

Rating: 5-stars

Hanover House by Brenda Novak is a stunning teaser that leads readers into her new thriller. It is a prequel that gives readers just enough to lure them deep into Brenda’s newest project. I loved reading this short story; a thriller that captivates readers early, and leaves them breathlessly waiting for the next part. I have read many novels by Brenda Novak, and this is, by far, the most intriguing read yet.

Hanover House is an isolated building for psychopaths. Murderers are all trapped in one building to be studied for their behavior, as well as what makes them do what they do. The threat of being killed by these inmates is very real, especially when one very determined doctor is almost killed by one of them. Now, she’s returned back to her work more determined than ever to study these dangerous killers. However, little did she know, a past pyschopathic killer from twenty years ago is now hunting her again, biding his time to finish her off. Can the doctor survive this cat and mouse game and still head back to work? Or, will she finally die at the hands of her killer? Then, there’s a man who is determined to have her as his own, but, he has to take it slow or risk losing her. Brenda Novak strikes again with this latest bone chilling thriller. This is the most intense, terrifying, and suspenseful read I have seen thus far by Brenda. Readers will be left begging for more. Overall, I highly recommend this brilliant novel and rate it a five out of five stars.
