4.0 out of 5 stars very good book, quite intense at times. 29 Dec 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed reading this book. There are a lot of victims in this book so felt the story was quite repetitive though. Not wanting to give to much away but do Private investigators/undercover agents not carry weapons?
Not for the faint hearted at all but does make a good read. I have the follow on book The Murder Game, not sure if to read next or if to read something else and then go back to it later on.

5.0 out of 5 stars tense thriller 8 Aug 2008
By WINKS
Format:Paperback
brutal,shocking and certainly not for the faint hearted. A clever, serial murder thriller, that doesn't dwell on the shocking but is descriptive enough to give you chills. All the characters are believable and honestly portrayed. I couldn't put it down until I had finished. I was glad I didn't read it last thing at night!! I have just ordered the follow-up as I just have to know what happens next to the characters I have been introduced too. I am not going to say anything about the story as what you read on the back cover is all you need to know, anything more would spoil the suspence.

3.0 out of 5 stars A very average read 30 Dec 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
I confess that I obtained this book gratis for my Kindle and as such I didn`t expect too much. I was not disappointed.
The key characters were introduced at a very early stage and were not allowed to develop in a way I would consider relevant to the tale. After all, this serial killer made Attila the Hun look positively saintly. Griffin remains enigmatic although no effort was made to actually suggest his past or how he became so wealthy, so in the end I wasn`t that bothered.
A positive area was the very brief prose on each victim prior to their death; that did work.

1.0 out of 5 stars Appalling spelling and puntuation
What an appalling book and a total waste of time. The spelling was terrible and the punctuation made it hard to read. Try editing it.
