5.0 out of 5 stars - love, deceit ByJP
This gripping psychological novel is captivating from start to finish; it is creative and descriptive and you are constantly wondering what will happen next! The book is a crime thriller, but it’s also a book of relationships taking the reader further, in a darker and unexpected direction.
The two main characters are Barri – an emotionless, sinister psychological serial killer, and Caprice; a young woman with deep personal problems. The story winds a complex web of intrigue between the two; desire, love, deceit, and neither of them even suspect the other's dangerous secret that they harbour. Barri is the bad guy – but I was drawn to him and actually started empathizing and liking this cool sadistic killer; could I be identifying with him on a subconscious level?
With a whole host of secondary characters interacting, they bring unexpected twists and turns, which adds to the mystique of the plot, further captivating the reader. The suspense, tensions and mystery makes this a magnificent read.

5.0 out of 5 stars - A 'must read'. I couldn't put it down! By SW
The main characters are intriguing and become interwoven in a dark and mysterious web. You think you know where the book is heading and then there's a twist, or an event that sweeps you along a different path.
The author knows how to target your emotions and curiosity and keep you locked into the story. I was saddened when I reached the end of the book...there's obviously more intrigue to come from these characters...isn't there?

5.0 out of 5 stars By TinkerBal
I was really excited to read this book. I was captivated by the characters and couldn't put the book down. As the story unfolds and the characters are broken down to reveal a dark, mysterious and full of twists story. I could see this being adapted to a series on TV or a film. Not wanting to give to much away the main character Bari really is dark and intriguing, also the characters he interacts with really makes you think!! I can’t wait to see what else is in store from this author.
