The first victim is hung in crucifixion position—a gash in his side and a wreath on his head.

4.5 stars

A murder mystery with a serial killer who uses mythology in his killings. I kept wondering how it could go wrong (because of a few low rating with no review). And it didn't. I really enjoyed this. It was fast paced and kept me in the edge of my seat.
The murders are graphically depicted, if that bothers you.

great thriller/serial killer novel, based on the delusions of a crazed man who plays out his murders from all the ancient pantheon gods from egypt, norse to greek.

There is a new serial killer in the town of Normandy, Ohio, and he has a uniquely sick calling card: he arranges his killings to simulate the deaths of gods from Norse, Egyptian, Greek, and Roman mythology. Each crime scene is littered with symbolic clues, carefully chosen to indicate which god the victim represents.

The killer is extremely meticulous, and leaves no clues. Neither Detective Dylan Black nor his partner Vivienne Sheffield are versed in folklore, so they are both pleased to find tha

I found this book by sheer luck and decided to give it a try. And I'm glad I did.

I rarely saw a killer this nuts in a m/m romance book. The plot was well written, the suspense barely bearable. I didn't give 5 stars because of two things:

1- I'm not a fan of the omniscient POV.
2- The ending is too cliché, what a pity!

This was a great read as a thriller. M/M took a rear seat and was minimal through most of the book. The book is a real page turner and kept me interested all the way. The killer was unique among all the thrillers I have read. The two main detective characters Black and Sheffield were well done and the Myth Boy Trevor was very believable. The visits into the killer's mind were creepy and well done. I highly recommend this book as a thriller more than a M/M romance. I gave it four stars because I ...more

Fast paced serial murder mystery with a mythological twist. Very well thought out and executed murders. I liked Trevor, Black and Sheffield as a team of three well fleshed out characters. Fenrir was the ultimate killer who creeped me out a few times. Highly recommended.

4.5 - A serial killer stalks the fictional town of Normandy, Ohio, leaving a multitude of clues for homicide Detectives Dylan Black (Black) and Vivienne Sheffield (Sheff) to decifer, but absolutely no evidence leading to the deranged killer, whose killings match the deaths of gods from Norse, Egyptian, Greek, and Roman mythology. Each crime contains symbolic clues meant to depict which god the victim is supposed to represent.

The killer is cunning, meticulous, and brutal. Lacking knowledge of anc
