Book Description

1 Aug 2012
He plays the oldest children's game in the world. Only the Eye Collector plays it to death. A pulse-pounding serial killer thriller for fans of Mo Hayder and Jo Nesbo. Ready or not, here he comes...It's the same each time. A woman's body is found with a ticking stopwatch clutched in her dead hand. A distraught father must find his child before the boy suffocates - and the killer takes his left eye. Alexander Zorbach, a washed-up cop turned journalist has reported all three of the Eye Collector's murders. But this is different. His wallet has been found next to the corpse and now he's a suspect. The Eye Collector wants Zorbach to play. Zorbach has exactly forty-five hours, seven minutes to save a little boy's life. And the countdown has started...

4.0 out of 5 stars Mental Mayhem. 13 Aug 2012
By ACB (swansea) TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
This is a psychological novel of dramatic chase with major consequences. Almost child-like in its basis, (hide and seek), it is deadly serious in its contest. Alexander Zorbach is an ex-policeman with hang-ups. He has law enforcement skills and trickery that make his transformation into a journalist one of potential virulence and danger. One step ahead of police investigations, his reputation seems secure but suspicious. His background is less impressive and explains to some extent his motivation. A failed marriage, a battle over his 11 year old son's custody with his unrelenting wife's push and punish approach to him.

His old workmates are not sure how far they can pitch into his trust as he, using his knowledge, is inevitably quick at the crime-scenes of a sadistic serial-killer. This psychopath preys on mothers with children. They are killed if the cat-and-mouse conditions are not fulfilled according to his stop-watch instructions. He, (Zorbach), becomes a potential villain in his own right, suspicion falling on him after his wallet is found next to a victim. His fellow co-worker and journalist, Frank, is a trustworthy ally.

The novel's title hints at what befalls his quarry. The dark, graphic imagery of Berlin with the unflinching paranormal gifts of a blind girl in peril, are instrumental in the combination of a thrilling novel and climax. Told in a back-to-front narrative (afterward to forward), does not in any way detract from this exhilarating and vivid book taken with a stretch on imagination. More translations of Sebastian Fitzek's writings, please.

A very skillfully mastered storyline. You cannot put the book down for too long or you will lose the plot! But a real eye opener

Excellent book. The ending was well thought out and unexpected.
Would definitely recommend.

Unfortunately it seems the majority of his other books are in German.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Eye Collector 9 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It should have been so much better than it is. Like a recipe, all the ingredients seem to be there, yet the result is lacking in flavour and disappointing to the senses.

I thought that the idea of beginning with the final chapter and reading your way through to the first was definitely novel and could have been clever, if he had actually pulled it off. But he didn't. The intention seemed to be unworkable and he might just as well not have bothered.

The content of the story is actually quite good , but poorly written and just does not flow. Maybe the problem lies with the translation. Who knows? However, with the right direction it could make a really good film, albeit gruesome at times.

It is well worth a read though at 49p!

5.0 out of 5 stars Twisted book 16 Feb 2013
By Sayka
Format:Kindle Edition
The followings of the character might be a litle weird at first but the more you follow the more intriguing it is. I normally guess the criminals and storyline however this storyline is one of the best. I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK. It is awesome.
