Staff Reviews

Andy Hicks and his partner Laura Fellowes are detectives in a British town with a serial killer on the loose. The brazen killer strikes at will, terrorizing the town and mocking Andy by sending him letters. As Andy probes the grisly cases, he finds himself battling his own demons as well, becoming more detached from his pregnant wife Rachel, and jeopardizing their marriage. Aided by his partner, Andy’s determination pays off, but not without a string of murders, lots of tension, and a bit of marriage counseling. Highly acclaimed in the UK, Mosby is a master of the character driven thriller.

— From Mystery Picks from Susan


Detective Inspector Andrew Hicks thinks he knows all about murder. However horrific the act, the reasons behind a crime are usually easy to explain. So when a woman is found bludgeoned to death, he suspects a crime of passion and attention focuses on her possessive ex-husband. But when a second body is found, similarly beaten, Hicks is forced to think again.

When more murders arrive in quick succession, Hicks realizes he is dealing with a type of killer he has never faced before, one who fits nowhere within his logic. Then the letters begin to arrive . . .

As the death toll rises, Hicks must face not only a killer obsessed with randomness and chaos, but also a secret in his own past. If he is to stop the killings, he must confront the truth about himself . . .
