This exciting first thriller by Will Carver is a promising start to his career and on the evidence of this it should be a good one. It involves Detective Inspector January David who has been investigating a series of murders of women, Girls one, two and three but not getting anywhere, then these murders appear to stop until several months later Girl number four is found, with a vital difference, this time the girl is still alive and January knows her, he should do he married her just after the other murders started. Will Carver has written a chilling portrayal of a serial killer here, with the story being told from the point of view of the detective, the killer and eerily the victim's. It does seem a little bit strange hearing from the girl's after they have been killed, almost as if they could speak from the grave, but it all adds something to the narrative. The whole novel is fast flowing with quite short chapter's and with suitably gruesome murder's there is much to enjoy, if that is your thing and I couldn't have guessed the outcome, though I did often think throughout the novel that I knew "whodunnit". The ending is a bit of a cliffhanger which I think is going to be explored further in the next book, which puts me in mind of the Gretchen Lowell series by Chelsea Cain. I have really enjoyed this book and look forward to his follow up when it is released. Recommended.
