Can you remember your best friend’s mobile phone
number?Or your partner’s birthday or,
indeed, your own wedding anniversary?The date of a close relative’s death?No?Well start memorising that
sort of stuff because someone out there is killing women in particularly nasty
ways and involving their friends and relatives in the grisly process.
Robert Hunter, LAPD is well-qualified in the Psychology of Criminal Conduct,
with a track record second to none.He
and his partner, Detective Carlos Garcia, have the job of trying to understand
the killer and his plans before he kills again.
story gives a different twist to the ubiquitous stalker/serial killer,
introducing new ways in which to use the mobile phone to terrifying effect.It does contain descriptions of violence, which
may not suit all readers – some quick page turns may sort that out.The partnership between the talented
insomniac Hunter and Garcia is well-drawn.There is even a little personal interest as Hunter starts to take an interest
in a woman he meets at the 24-hour library he visits during his sleepless
nights.It’s a clever and taught plot,
though the ending is perhaps not quite what the rest of the story
deserves.This book is the eighth in the
series, but does work as a stand-alone. It
will be welcomed by the author’s many fans who have waited a while for this addition
to the Hunter and Garcia series.

fiction has been my favourite reading material since as a teenager I first
spotted Agatha Christie on the library bookshelves.For twenty-five years the commute to and from
London provided plenty of reading time.I am fortunate to live in Cambridge, where my local crime fiction book
club, Crimecrackers, meets at Heffers Bookshop .I enjoy attending crime fiction events and
currently organise events for the Margery Allingham Society.
