it was amazing

Wow! This is a hardcore novel that pulls no punches. Real gritty Brit crime writing.

A complex story with some fascinating characters developed along the way. It is not your run of the mill thriller – in fact it starts out as a psychological suspense novel, develops into a murder mystery and concludes as an out and out banging thriller!

The conflict revolves around a threesome: the protagonist (a forensic psychologist who is having a very tough time mentally), his potential love interest, a parole officer, and the amazing bad guy - a brilliantly drawn psycho who becomes obsessed with her while he's inside prison. An interesting subplot involves the ex-husband, expanding on the theme of guilt that runs right through this cracking read.

This was a another used paperback I found in a beach bar while on holiday, along with Deaver's The Bone Collector. Enjoyed this unexpected gem as much as I did re-reading that all time classic.

You'll love this if:

You enjoy fine writing, in depth characterization, and plenty of thrills and shocks, with a few unexpected twists thrown in.

You'll hate this if:

You like short and to the point thrillers, straightforward good guy/bad guy characters, easy to predict plots and especially if you are averse to violent, disturbing images told with a matter of fact realism.
