Book Description

Detective Carson Ryder faces a cunning and inventive adversary in this terrifying thriller from the bestselling author of Her Last Scream.

Young men in Miami are being abducted and tortured after their drinks are spiked with a cocktail of drugs that leaves them unable to recall their ordeal. Despite this, Detective Carson Ryder knows the predator’s name, height, age, colouring … everything. It’s impossible for the perpetrator to avoid detection. Yet he does.

When Carson seeks answers from his brother, a wanted criminal intimate with twisted minds, Jeremy’s odd behaviour sparks even more questions. With each abduction, the violence becomes more horrific, and it’s only a short time until torture turns to murder.

But how do you catch an invisible man?

Product Description


Praise for the Carson Ryder series:

'Kerley will truly scare the pants off his readers. This one's another winner from a writer moving towards the top of the thriller heap' Publishers Weekly

'A fascinating and frightening take on the genre' Independent on Sunday

'A chilling journey into a pitch-black mind' Michael Marshall, author of The Straw Men trilogy

About the Author

Jack Kerley spent years as an advertising agency writer and producer before his wife demanded he quit work and write a novel, which he thought a fine idea. The result was The Hundredth Man, the first in the Carson Ryder series. An avid angler, canoeist and hiker, Kerley has traveled extensively throughout the South, especially coastal regions such as Mobile, Alabama, the setting for many of his novels, and the Florida Keys. He has a cabin in the Kentucky mountains, which appeared as a setting in Buried Alive. He lives in Newport, Kentucky, where he enjoys sitting on the levee and watching the barges rumble up and down the Ohio River.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read as always 7 July 2014

I love Carson Ryder and he's settled well in Florida. However I do miss him being in Mobile in his fab house and I miss Harry too. Nevertheless it's a brilliant story and a great ending. I can't wait for the next (?) one. Here's hoping soon? (I'm addicted).
5 stars a must read

I love the Carson Ryder series but thought this one was just ok. It wasn't bad but it wasn't particularly good either. Definitely worth a read if you are a fan of the series.

I felt like this book was more of a set-up for the next book in the series which I think will be really good if the plot lines that were set-up here is pulled through.

I can only recommend this one for fans of the series. If you are new to the series start with a different one!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read 25 Nov. 2014
By Elaine Tomasso TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Carson Ryder is once again on the hunt for a serial offender, although this one is a brutal rapist rather than killer, who drugs his victims with a creepy cocktail of natural toxins. As usual Carson has a new woman and Jeremy, his mad brother, moves to Florida to torment him so there is familiarity and novelty. The plot is extremely detailed in its twists and turns (I don't want to say more in case I give it away) but somehow it seems to lack something. I think it might be a sense of urgency and stress as it all seems a little laid back. I also think there is less humour in The Memory Killer than some of the other books. This is not a bad book and a first time reader will enjoy the intricacies of the plot but it's not the best in the series.

This isn't Kerley at his finest but it is still a good yarn. It is at times dark and grim, but there are the occasional chuckles to be had along the way. And it is always nice to see some of the re-occurring characters re-appear in different ways and with the potential to be big parts of future books.

Looking forward to the next one

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and found myself looking forward to every days reading, an unusual occurrence these days & much appreciated.
I found the storyline gripping as well as the characters & although at times a difficult subject matter, I felt it was handled well. I'm not sure about the Ryder/Jeremy relationship & how/if that will develop, but, I wait with interest.
