Like A Suicide started out slow. Describing the killer's profile is not much of a story for me. I thought it was overly done for my taste. I was also bothered by the goriness and violence of the scenes depicted in the story so I had to stop reading from time to time.

The third or fourth time I picked up this book, I thought I had it all figured out. Well, I was wrong. The twists in the story surely enticed me to continue reading. Every chapter read is giving me doubts on who the real killer is. T

Charlene's Review:

Wraith, a serial killer, is a member of the Devoted Brotherhood of Anarchy. He picks his victims and tortures them for fun and sexual pleasure. The game changes though, when Link, the voice in his head, tells him that someone is stealing from him. His passion for murder intensifies as he attempts to take away everything that matters to his next target, James Harper.

This is an absolutely mind-blowing novel of horrific proportions. Several times I started to put it down in disgus

What an absolute roller coaster of a book. Lots of plot twists and even at the end when I doubted that fairy tale ending there was another twist [which I do confess to suspecting]
I won't go into much detail as I wouldn't want to spoil it for anyone else, but if you enjoy books with brutal violence in a very descriptive way and dysfunctional relationships with violent sex then this is a book you will enjoy
Star (The Bibliophilic Book Blog)
“Wraith” is a man who makes his living causing chaos through murder and depravity. When he finds out there is someone who seems to have stolen his identity and his money, he is out to cause them a world of hurt. Yet what he finds defies explanation and will drive him to the very brink of insanity.

‘Like A Suicide’ is a creepy and deliciously violent novel which does not pull any punches, so be warned. If you love gory, psychologically twisted, and deeply depraved characters, than this is the book

Very entertaining read. I don't often pick up these kinds of books but the writing of this book was quite good. The story flows well but it's mainly the writing that stands out to me. It just flows well. Even with the slight editing errors, I want to be taken away by a story and this book does its job.

A heart-stopping thrill ride that kept me on the edge of my seat. Well written and filled with interesting characters, readers of Jeff Lindsay will definitely enjoy this. Overall, well worth the read!
Melissa Ann
It was a bit excessively graphic in some spots but it made up for it by keeping me guessing almost to the end. The ending wasn't fantastic but it was worth the read.

not many books take me by surprise.But man what a total shock..To be chased by a serial killer,all because you know everything about him..But how do you know and why did he choose you?The Wraith is coming for you.

started and did not finish, not really wanting more gratutious violence in my reading. But could very well be a good book for someone who likes this..
