So I write another letter. I give them the chance to stop me before it happens.
How long will it take them to piece everything together? I give them everything they'll need apart from the name.
She changes everything.
So begins a cat-and-mouse game between Detective Inspector January David and an elusive serial killer. The pieces of this chilling psychological thriller come together in a masterful puzzle of mystery and suspense. I really liked the way Will Carver weaves together his different narrative voices. And it reads fast! January David is a complicated character: he's imperfect, drinks too much, and has visions, but he's completely dedicated to his job and solving these horrific crimes, even as the serial killer continually stays two steps ahead of him. I liked him. Be warned, though, this novel is dark and parts of it are a little graphic. But it's still a good read and there's a twist at the end I did not expect. (Which makes it a good choice for my "Twisted" Reading Bingo square.) All in all, I'd read Carver again, especially with D.I. January David as the main character.
