it was amazing
bookshelves: crime
Read from October 15 to 17, 2010

With this novel Ellory established himself as one of my favourite crime writers. I had loved 'A Quiet Belief in Angels' though wondered if his others could live up to that standard. I shouldn't have been concerned because this does and also is very different in style.

It is a serial killer novel but one that is quite fresh in the way the killer operates. Fascinating and compelling.

It combines page-turning suspense with quite a literary quality.
Near the opening is a recollection of a crime by its victim that is a stunning piece of writing.
