Rewind by Catherine Ryan Howard @cathryanhoward @AtlanticBooks #RewindBook #Netgalley #BookReview

Good morning Bibliophiles, I hope you are all feeling wonderful today?

I am so pleased to bring you a review for a book that quite literally had my head spinning!

My Thoughts

๐Ÿ†‚๐Ÿ…ด๐Ÿ…ฒ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ…ด๐Ÿ†ƒ๐Ÿ†‚ ๐Ÿ…ป๐Ÿ…ธ๐Ÿ…ด๐Ÿ†‚ย ๐Ÿ…ฐ๐Ÿ…ฝ๐Ÿ…ณ ๐Ÿ†…๐Ÿ…ธ๐Ÿ…ณ๐Ÿ…ด๐Ÿ…พย ๐Ÿ†ƒ๐Ÿ…ฐ๐Ÿ…ฟ๐Ÿ…ด

Take a little piece of Pulp Fiction,ย add in a Dash of Memento flavoured withย Fatal Attraction, and thenย stir in a littleย drop of Psycho.

Add your “Liquid Hell” to your cocktail shaker,ย  pop in a few ice cubes and shake that sucker until your head explodes!

This is the book that makes you go “Wait…Whaaa”

The story is so cleverly written, it is just as you would be watching a murder mystery on a VHS,ย but you really want to get to the good parts, you stop the video, rewind,ย watch a little bit, decide that’s not the part that you wanted. Rewind again, nope still not it,ย perhaps it was further on than you thought? Maybe try fast-forwarding, nope not it, rewind it again…..

STOP…

PLAY…

PAUSE….

WHAT…IS…THAT??

Each chapter gives you a snippet, but not enough, and you just have to keep on reading!

Some truly unlikable characters in this story but what a great story it was.

Natalie is what we would now call an Influencer,ย she is an Instagram star.

She’s made lots of money and has used this to pay for a new house that her and her husband haveย movedย inย to.

So why would she just pick up and leave her somewhat perfect life, and book herself intoย some randomย holiday cottage in the middle of nowhere with a creepy manager?

The book starts at the end of the tape, and this tape is what someone is watching when a womanย is brutally murdered while asleepย inย bed, someone is watching a live feed from a secret camera in the room

A murder, caught on camera,ย You’ve already missed the start. To get the full picture you must rewind the tape and play it through to the end, no matter how shocking…

A very clever thriller that will keep you turning the pages.

**Thank you to Atlantic Books, Netgalley and the Author for a copy of this book**

Enjoy the madness

The Secret Mother by Shalini Boland @ShaliniBoland @bookouture#AudioBookReview #TheSecretMother

Hello book friends,

I’m super happy to bring you a review for this fab read, that quite frankly scared the pants off of me, the thought of a stranger just  being in your house when you arrive home makes me a bit ๐Ÿ˜ฒ

Why Did You Pick It Up Vicci?

Well for one, if you’ve never read a book by Shalini Boland before then you are really missing out on some great reads, and also have you read the blurb to this book??!!

My Thoughts

So I don’t mind telling you that this one terrified me, and I don’t really know why!

I think it is something to do with the fact that Tessa Markham comes home from work one day, let’s herself in and makes her way into the kitchen, only to find a small child in there, who turns around and says “Are you my Mummy?”

Now I’m sure if I was in that situation in real life, I wouldn’t have said ARGHHHHH!!! (or something vaguely similar) but I did, those words just took me back to early 2000’s and that horrid Doctor Who episode called The Empty Child, and he wasn’t cute….he wasn’t cute at all!!

tenor

Anyhoo I digress.

Tessa finds the said (non evil) child in her kitchen and panics, what does she do? Who does she tell? and where the hell did he come from?

After calling the police and getting the side eye from them, she suddenly gets labelled as a child abductor, and people that know her, start looking at her in a different light.

Did she steal that child?, Is she what people are calling her?, or is there something sinister going on?

She doesn’t remember taking him, but her mind has been a little distracted after her recent tragedy, so who knows.

The press hound her, and her ex boyfriend isn’t helping much either.

Be prepared to whizz your way through this one, it’s a cracker!

I listened to the Audiobook narrated by Katie Villa who did a brilliant job , I will certainly be looking out for other titles that she has narrated.

The Passengers by John Marrs @johnmarrs1 @DelReyUK #AudioBookreview #ThePassengers

Hello bookie buddies!!

I woke up this morning thinking it was Friday, when I woke up and realised it was only (insert any day here except Friday ๐Ÿ˜‚) I was bitterly disappointed! – This is me Every. Single. Day

So in true grumpy style I decided to start another audio book, and this was the one I picked up.

Why Did You Pick It Up Vicci?

This will be the 4th book of John Marrs that I have read, and it certainly won’t be the last.

I love the way that he builds the story, and that you get really invested in the characters lives. And I’m super excited about his book “The One” that is soon to be a major Netflix series.

My Thoughts

๐”น๐•ฆ๐•”๐•œ๐•๐•– ๐•ช๐• ๐•ฆ๐•ฃ๐•ค๐•–๐•๐•— ๐•š๐•Ÿ ๐•—๐• ๐•ฃ ๐•’ ๐•“๐•ฆ๐•ž๐•ก๐•ช ๐•ฃ๐•š๐••๐•–!

Set in a not-too-distant-future, Britain is now seeing self-drive cars on our roads every day, they are the saviour of our highways, as they help the environment, as well as cutting down traffic jams, they can see possible problems ahead, so will take alternative routes.

You can just get in the car, and relax, maybe sit and read the daily paper, maybe finish putting on your make-up, or because the windows turn opaque and let you play videos, you can sit and scroll through Facebook and Twitter on the way to work…Sounds great right?

And it is, everyone has embraced the future, except some, some people really don’t like these cars at all!

Libby is one of these people, she is called for jury duty, but not for what you think, these juries consist of just one member of the public, and they are held in secret to discuss accidents involving Driverless cars, and also to determine who (or what) is at fault.

Headed by the obnoxious MP Jack, the trial is in full swing when the hacker joins the conversation, and he makes it clear very quickly who is in charge!

You see, it turns out that the cars that “could never be hacked” actually could be, and the hacker will show you what happens when you do not pay attention.

A live feed has been set up on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram showing the courtroom and all of the Jurors, it also shows the random 8 people that are now stuck in their cars and are all driving to the same location, the exact location, meaning that they will all crash…but the hacker will allow one person to live, who decides that….Oh…it’s you!!

A wonderful read with a scary look into our near future.

Mr Marrs, I think Ron Weasley said it best:

The Chain by Adrian McKinty @adrianmckinty @orionbooks #TheChain #Bookreview #Netgalley

Oohh I think all of you thriller lovers are going to LOVE this one!!

Hello from a surprisingly sunny UK, the sun is out, and because it doesn’t happen very often, we don’t know what to do with ourselves LOL.

So here I am to bring you a review for this little cracker of a thriller, that will keep you on the edge of your seat, right until the very end!

Why Did You Pick It Up Vicci?

Well, I was doing my usual picking-too-many-to-read-and-review-in-time choices on NetGalley (As you do!) and I read the blurb to this one, and I just couldn’t pass it by, it sounded fantastic, and just up my street.

My Thoughts

๐”ป๐• ๐•Ÿ๐•ฅ ๐•—๐• ๐•ฃ๐•˜๐•–๐•ฅ ๐•ฅ๐•  ๐•“๐•ฃ๐•–๐•’๐•ฅ๐•™๐•–!!

Let’s play a game of “Would you rather” …….

Would you rather be a victim, or an abuser?

What if you had to be both?

This is what Rachel is dealing with. After dropping her daughter off at the bus stop, as she does every morning, she gets a call from a woman, the woman explains that she has kidnapped her daughter Kylie and she will only get her back by following just a few simple rules, if these rules are not followed, she will kill her.

  1. No authorities, and no police!
  2. Pay a ransom…….. a staple in a kidnapping right?
  3. Kidnap a child…….are you intrigued now?
  4. Call that child’s parents and give them the same information that you are getting right now.
  5. Hold that kidnapped child somewhere, until the parents of the child have paid the ransom, and also kidnapped another child…….I can see your eyebrows raising!
  6. Until all of the above have been completed, Kylie will be held.
  7. And here is the kicker!! – After Rachel has followed the rules above, the child of the woman on the phone will be released!

And so on, and so on…

Welcome friends, to The Chain

You see, what is so clever about this book, is that it plays on the “what would you do for your child” part of you, and because you are there with Rachel all of the way, it makes you think ‘what would I do’?

Would I do anything to protect my child? Abso-bloody-lutely, but the thought of putting another parent through the same trauma as you are going through right now is just heartbreaking. And you know that when you get told they will kill your child, you believe them, because their own child is at risk too!

You’ll never look at one of those silly chain letters again!!

Grab this one when it is released on 9th July

You’re Welcome ๐Ÿ˜‰

The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t with Her Mind by Jackson Ford @orbitbooks @Netgalley #NewRelease #JacksonFord

Hello Book Friends,

I’m excited to bring you a new super fun book that is going to hit the shelves in a couple of weeks.

Why did you pick it up Vicci? –  Ummm have you seen that title???

IntGdBN4_400x400

My Thoughts

This was such a fun read, it follows the main character Teagan, who has Psychokinesis or PK for short, so she can indeed move shit with her mind.

Tegan works for the Government, who send her on secret missions, simply because she is able to do things that other people can’t.

But all in all Tegan is a young girl, she thinks her abilities are cool, but that’s really about it, she wants to be able to drink beer and have a good time, she really isn’t that bothered about working for the Government, but she does know what will happen to her if anyone ever found out what she can do, so she does the bare minimum, much to her teams frustration.

Tegan’s real passion, is food, and not any old food, she really wants to own a restaurant, and her dream is to eat in every swanky place she can to get ideas for this, but this is just a pipe-dream.

The last job that she took on with her team didn’t go according to plan, and now a body has turned up, but he could only have been killed with powers the same as Tegan’s, she is adamant that she didn’t do it, but her team-mates are not so sure, so she is given 24 hours to prove her innocence before she is reported.

A really fun read, I loved Tegan, she was funny and sometimes really really stupid, but i think that made her more likeable.

A crazy ride that drops you right in the centre of it on the first page, you will never get bored with this story, some great characters and a bit of a cliffhanger that makes you think that book 2 will probably be coming your way soon!

**Many thanks to Orion Books and Netgalley for my copy of this book**

About the Book

For Teagan Frost, sh* just got real.

Teagan Frost is having a hard time keeping it together. Sure, she’s got telekinetic powers — a skill that the government is all too happy to make use of, sending her on secret break-in missions that no ordinary human could carry out. But all she really wants to do is kick back, have a beer, and pretend she’s normal for once.

But then a body turns up at the site of her last job — murdered in a way that only someone like Teagan could have pulled off. She’s got 24 hours to clear her name – and it’s not just her life at stake. If she can’t unravel the conspiracy in time, her hometown of Los Angeles will be in the crosshairs of an underground battle that’s on the brink of exploding . . .

Full of imagination, wit, and random sh*t flying through the air, this insane adventure from an irreverent new voice will blow your tiny mind.

Dead in Venice by Fiona Leitch @fkleitch @audibleuk #DerynEdwards #Mystery #Thriller #AudiobookReview

Hello again book buddies!!

I’m super happy to share my review of this little surprise that I didn’t even have on my radar.

Why did you pick this one up Vicci?

Well, funny story, I didn’t even know this book existed, I was chatting to a lovely lady on TBC (THE Book Club) on Facebook and someone was asking for Audio recommendations, I jumped in to give some of my favourites, and ended up in a messenger chat with her.
I sent her an audio with the Audible ‘Send this Book’ option, and luckily she loved it (Phew) and to say thank you, she gifted me a code for her book, I had no idea she was an author either, Anyhoo, I downloaded it, listened to it, and Loved it!!

41813137

My Thoughts 

Bella Tyson is a famous author, her genre is crime and she loves to write a good old Murder Mystery, but there is one thing holding her back at the moment, and that is writers block, after a messy and bitter divorce a couple of years ago, she just can’t seem to get back into the swing of it.

She receives an email from a fan who offers her an apartment in Venice to help her with new ideas for her new novel.
Bella obviously jumps at the chance, and soon starts thinking of ideas for her new book.

After arriving in Venice and meeting the very dashing Will, the two set off to see the sights of Venice, well until the murders start happening obviously!

This is brilliant for Bella as she can use these brutal murders for inspiration for her book, but then weird things keep happening that she can’t explain!

A super fun read, I loved Bella’s character, she used humour a lot to get herself out of situations, and I love her for that as I tend to do the same thing, although not as brilliantly as her!

Expertly narrated by Deryn Edwards, who bought Bella’s character to life and showed her sparkling personality.

A short listen at only 6 hours, and well worth grabbing!

**Thank you to the author for gifting me a copy of this book**

About the book 

Dead in Veniceโ€ฉCrime Grant Finalistโ€ฉBy: Fiona Leitchโ€ฉNarrated by: Deryn Edwardsโ€ฉLength: 6 hrs and 4 minsโ€ฉRelease date: 11-09-18โ€ฉPublisher: Audible Studios

AUDIBLE CRIME WRITING GRANT FINALIST – AUDIBLE EXCLUSIVE

Bella Tyson is a famous 40-something crime writer suffering from writerโ€™s block ever since a bitter divorce two years before. When a fan offers her the use of an apartment in Venice, Bella jumps at it, hoping a change of scene will have her writing again. Once there, she soon meets Will, a charming Englishman, who shows her around the city.

Enchanted by both Will and her new surroundings, Bella decides to write a supernatural murder mystery and begins researching local legends and the cityโ€™s more sinister side, including an illicit visit to the island of Poveglia, spooky former home of Veniceโ€™s asylum. Soon Bella uncovers more than she has bargained for and finds herself enmeshed in a series of gruesome real-life murders that uncannily mirror the legends she is researching.

As she and Will join forces to investigate, real life and local lore merge disconcertingly – for nothing in Venice turns out to be what seems, including Will….

The Women by S.E. Lynes @SELynesAuthor @bookouture @Netgalley #NewRelease #HappyPublicationDay

Hello book friends,

Super happy to bring you a review for this cracker of a thriller, I was completely blown away with this book.

Happy Publication Day to S.E. Lynes!

Why did you pick it up Vicci?

After reading the blurb on Netgalley I was crossing my fingers hoping that I would be accepted for this one, it just sounded like I would love it, and I wasn’t wrong!

My Thoughtsย 

Wow, what a crazy ride that was!

After meeting both Samantha and Peter on their no-so-happy honeymoon, we then get flashed back in time to when they met.

Samantha is a normal student, she likes to go out drinking and having fun with her friends.

When the handsome lecturer Peter sidles up behind her and starts to show her some attention, she is of course flattered, he is after all, the sexy man that all of the girls have their eyes on.

He is a very well-knowledged man, and although he didn’t actually call her stupid, she feels it, and he definitely didn’t imply it…did he?

The attraction between them is palpable, and a very quick relationship is formed, so much so, that Samantha is moving in with Peter within a week of meeting him!

She soon learns that living together is very difficult, I mean she’s never lived with anyone before, so it is only right that he tells her when she is doing something wrong, like eating at the wrong times, or taking too long in the shower.

Only someone that really loves you would make sure that you are reading the correct literary fiction instead of that “propagandist tosh” in her women’s magazines.

He is a very clever man, and appreciates things like a glass of red wine every night (that he has chosen), with the dinner (that he has cooked), and after the meal they have (he has) a strict 10 o’clock bed time (after sex of course) routine.

And she really is happy…….right?

After starting her new job as a Creative writing teacher (that Peter kindly got for her), she starts to receive poems that make her very uncomfortable, are they from one of her students? they could be I suppose, but then, that would mean that the person writing them knows about her life, how can someone else know what is going through her own head?

I was totally gripped by this book, I could clearly see the red flags, they were there for all to see, except Samantha didn’t, and unfortunately (myself included) unless you have been in this situation, the flags do not show until you are at rock bottom.

A fantastic read, grab it ASAP!!

**Many thanks to The author, Bookouture, and Netgalley for my copy of the book**

About the book

The Women
by S.E. Lynes
The night she moves in with Peter, sheโ€™s so happy, so exhilarated, so in love. Later, she will remember a much smaller feeling, a tiny one percent in her gut. And she will remember pushing that feeling asideโ€ฆ

Samantha Frayn doesnโ€™t know why Peter Bridges picks her โ€“ a nobody with bitten fingernails and a troubled childhood behind her โ€“ but she falls quickly. Heโ€™s older, charming, likes fine wine and French films, and his beautiful home has real art on its walls.

Peter transforms Samanthaโ€™s life in an instant. He sees the better version of herself โ€“ the one sheโ€™s always wanted to be. Itโ€™s only normal that thereโ€™s a little friction, when she moves in, over domestic matters like where things are kept, or the proper times to eat, sleep and shower. Sheโ€™s lucky to be with someone who can help her find a new job, move on from childish friends, and speak with greater sophistication.

But as Samantha notices, more and more, Peterโ€™s temper, she starts to wonder if there might be consequences to breaking the rules of the world he has so quickly built around her.

And then she receives an anonymous note that makes her ask: is she the first woman to feel trapped by Peter? Is she being paranoid, manipulated, or could she be in danger?

You can tell the truth about your life, but someone needs to be listening. Someone needs to trust you. And someone needs to save you from the man you thought you loved.

Her Last Move by John Marrs @johnmarrs1 #BrillianceAudio #Thriller #Crime #AudiobookReview

Hello friends,

It’s Bank Holiday here over in the UK so we get an extra long weekend YAY!

I’m super happy to bring you a review for this twisty little tale!

Why did you pick it up Vicci? – Well I have read a few of this authors books before and reviewed them on here, I have also picked up his latest book but it is on Pre-order from Audible so I have to wait .. boo! So I thought I’d dive in with this one first.

IntGdBN4_400x400

My Thoughts

I loved this thriller, it is full of twists and turns and a finale that I didn’t see coming, everything I love about a thriller.

We hear the story from multiple POV, one from DS Becca Vincent, and her partner, a ‘Super Recogniser’ Joe, and then from the serial killer themselves.

The opening scene sets the rest of the book up, we start with a packed tube station and a murder, DS Becca Vincent is there on her way to work, but she is quite far back and has her headphones in, so she doesn’t realise there is a problem until the police show up.

She is having struggles in her home life, she has a daughter with special needs and her mother has moved in with her to help, she is finding it difficult to juggle her home life with her career, and now it is going to get twice as tricky.

Joe is a ‘super recogniser’ (I had to google it myself, and it is an actual thing) He can look at a face and store it in his memory, and then pull it out maybe years later with a name.

From Wiki – The skill is recognised and employed among the British intelligence community.

In May 2015, the London Metropolitan Police officially formed a team made up of people with this heightened capability for recognising people and put them to work identifying individuals whose faces are captured on CCTV. Scotland Yard has a squad of over 200 super recognisers.

Who knew?? Well Becca didn’t for one, but Joe is the man that she is partnered with to try and catch this serial killer, who seems to have some sort of pattern, if only they could work out what it is!

Some grizzly murders and some great twists in this one, and a big WTF which I always enjoy.

John Marrs has written some great thrillers, and although this is not my absolute favourite of his, it is still a fantastic read.

๐ŸŽง๐ŸŽง – Narrated by Elizabeth Knowelden who gave a fantastic performance, I will certainly be looking out for more books narrated by her.

About the book

By: John Marrsโ€ฉNarrated by: Elizabeth Knoweldenโ€ฉLength: 10 hrs and 12 minsโ€ฉRelease date: 08-11-18โ€ฉPublisher: Brilliance Audio

He hides in the shadows, waiting for the perfect moment. Each kill is calculated, planned and executed like clockwork.

Struggling to balance her personal and professional life, young DS Becca Vincent has landed the biggest case of her career โ€“ and she knows that it will make or break her. But how can she identify one face in a sea of thousands? With the help of Police Super Recogniser Joe Russell, she strives to catch a glimpse of the elusive murderer, but heโ€™s watching her every move.

Time is not on their side. The body count is rising, and the attacks are striking closer and closer to home. Can Becca and Joe uncover the connection between the murders before the killer strikes the last name from his list?

The Stolen Marriage by Diane Chamberlain @D_Chamberlain @MacmillanAudio #AudiobooReview #Historical #Mystery

How are we all today book buddies?

Happy to bring you a review of this Historical Fiction book that had me gripped.

Why did you pick it up Vicci? – I’ve already read one of this authors books and reviewed it on here, and I really like her writing style, I also want to start reading more Historical books as I had previously given them a wide berth.

IntGdBN4_400x400

My Thoughts

I really enjoyed this story and it is the second I have read from this author.

Tess DeMello is happy, she is engaged to a wonderful man, and is excited to become his wife, her husband-to-be is a doctor and is very passionate about his work, so much so, he hot foots it to Chicago to help out with the Polio epidemic that seems to be rife there.

She naturally misses him, and his time there seems to be getting longer and longer, each call she gets from him seems to be him changing the date that he will be coming home, this turns into months.

He friend tries to snap her out of her slump by inviting her to go away with her for a couple of days to her aunts house who lives out of town, but when they get there, it seems that her aunt has had to leave for a few days and has left instructions for them to have a good time, unfortunately there are also 2 men staying in the house with them.

Tess is very cautious about this, but they soon start chatting and the gentlemen invite them out for a friendly meal, which turns into an evening of bad choices for Tess, too much alcohol and another bad decision leads her into being single, pregnant and alone.

After finding out where the father of her unborn child lives, Tess breaks off her engagement, packs a bag and leaves to find him, Henry does the right thing and moves her in with him, and promptly marries her.

But things are not right in the house, Henry doesn’t seem to be the man she thought he was, and why doesn’t he want to spend any time with her?

A fab little mystery that had me guessing all the way through.

A great read, I personally thought that Tess was not totally to blame in this situation, Yes she had drunk too much alcohol and was a little worse for wear, but I didn’t really see any consent going on, I don’t remember Tess saying No, but she also didn’t say Yes, and I think really that Henry took advantage of the situation.

๐ŸŽง๐ŸŽง – Narration was perfectly done by Susan Bennett and I will certainly be looking out for more of her narration.

About the Book

The Stolen Marriageโ€ฉBy: Diane Chamberlainโ€ฉNarrated by: Susan Bennettโ€ฉLength: 14 hrs and 7 minsโ€ฉPublisher: Macmillan Digital Audio

One mistake, one fateful night, and Tess DeMelloโ€™s life is changed forever.

It is 1944. Pregnant, alone, and riddled with guilt, twenty-three-year-old Tess DeMello abruptly gives up her budding career as a nurse and ends her engagement to the love of her life, unable to live a lie. Instead, she turns to the babyโ€™s father for help and agrees to marry him, moving to the small, rural town of Hickory, North Carolina. Tessโ€™s new husband, Henry Kraft, is a secretive man who often stays out all night, hides money from his new wife, and shows her no affection. Tess quickly realizes sheโ€™s trapped in a strange and loveless marriage with no way out.

The people of Hickory love and respect Henry but see Tess as an outsider, treating her with suspicion and disdain. When one of the townโ€™s golden girls dies in a terrible accident, everyone holds Tess responsible. But Henry keeps his secrets even closer now, though it seems that everyone knows something about him that Tess does not.

When a sudden polio epidemic strikes Hickory, the townspeople band together to build a polio hospital. Tess knows she is needed and defies Henryโ€™s wishes to begin working at there. Through this work, she begins to find purpose and meaning. Yet at home, Henryโ€™s actions grow more alarming by the day. As Tess works to save the lives of her patients, can she untangle the truth behind her husbandโ€™s mysterious behavior and find the loveโ€”and the lifeโ€”she was meant to have?

The Bone Collector by Jeffery Deaver (Lincoln Rhyme, #1) #Mystery #Thriller #Crime #AudiobookReview

Hello book friends,

A little Oldie-but-goldie review today, I keep meaning to read the rest of the series but keep getting distracted but other pretty books Lol

Why did you pick it  up Vicci? – Well it was an Audible Daily Deal so I thought ‘Why not!’ I’d already seen the movie about a hundred times so I was interested in how the book measured against it.

My Thoughts

WOAH this is sooo much better than the movie, and I loved the movie (I must have seen it 20 times)

Lincoln Rhyme is a forensic criminalist who is good as his job, brilliant in fact and was often called to help with crime scenes as he is the best…… was the best.

After a terrible accident Lincoln has ended up lying in a hospital bed and paralysed, now as a quadriplegic Lincoln can only dream of his old job, until he gets a visit from an old friend.

There has been a murder, a gruesome one at that, and the murderer has left clues to another one that is going to happen, the clues were found by Amelia Sachs, a street cop who is then paired with Rhymes to help solves these grizzly crimes.

Lincoln and Sachs are a good pairing, him in his bed talking Amelia through what he wants her to do.
He is also a very angry man who doesn’t want to live any more, and has arranged his own suicide, however the job seems to be getting his creative juices flowing again.

I liked the narration of this book and the gruesome murders were even more graphic when they are being spoken to you.

If you have seen the movie i would take it with a pinch of salt, it is completely different to the book, different murders, people, even the bad guy at the end is different.

So even though it is a brilliant movie, the book always does it better.

About the book

Lincoln Rhyme was once a brilliant criminologist, a genius in the field of forensics — until an accident left him physically and emotionally shattered. But now a diabolical killer is challenging Rhyme to a terrifying and ingenious duel of wits.

With police detective Amelia Sachs by his side, Rhyme must follow a labyrinth of clues that reaches back to a dark chapter in New York City’s past — and reach further into the darkness of the mind of a madman who won’t stop until he has stripped life down to the bone.
