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

“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

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

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.

Absolutely loved this book. This author wrote a brilliant book and I absolutely couldn't put it down. I couldn't wait to see what happened and was blown away by the fantastic conclusion. A definite must read. I highly recommend it. You won't be disappointed.

Kindle edition has a fee typos, Book seems graphically violent without a necessary reason Big twist is fairly obvious from the beginning, sometimes the dialogue seems a little forced, Did not really buy the other reveal of the identity of the killers father. Like too many of these boonms the killer is just too perfect.

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!

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..

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.
