Decided to re-read all Stephen Gallagher's novel. Had forgotten quite how good they were, with 'villains' that you can't help but feel sorry for, even as they do the most monstrous things, and a lyrical turn of phrase for descriptions of places and people that's hard to beat.

This is a competent police procedural, which doesn't do anything remarkable but does what it does do well. I enjoyed the experience but I suspect I will forget this fairly soon.

Sorry - dated, cliched, predictable. Didn't care about the characters or the outcome.

Shelves: horror, thriller
Combines horror and the thriller genres. Good edge of your seat suspense.
