I did not see much of the coastline of eastern Australia whilst reading this book. I found myself tucked up under the awning of my caravan intrigued with the plot.
As a first-time reader of a Chris Carter story I cannot praise his skill of storytelling enough. The plot immediately drew me in and I’ve never wanted the main characters, Hunter and Garcia, to get their man more! I enjoyed the chase from the detectives point of view focusing on the criminal behaviour of the perpetrator more thanI did the vivid descriptions as he carried out his crimes.
Definitely not for the faint-hearted, readers need to prepare themselves for the gruesome nature of the crimes and the autopsies conducted. There is also a lot of detail surrounding a child’s abduction and the violent and horrendous abuse the child suffers.
If you enjoy the crime and physiological thriller genre, this book is for you.
