I really quite enjoyed this story but would have preferred it had been better edited first. There were some oft-repeated mistakes throughout that drove me nuts.
The tale is set in Canada where a serial killer is on the loose. It rightly quoted Ted Bundy at the beginning remarking on the way law-enforcement made his chosen career path an easy one to take seeing as they didn't communicate with each other. So as a transient murderer he got away with it for many more years than he rightly should have.
This was the case with the murderer Phil of the story. He crossed boundaries and the differing police agencies used differing systems, even in this 21st century. As we learned here in the UK to our cost after a massive scale set of killings with the Yorkshire Ripper you could be totally bogged down with information and tips to follow up, however well-meaning, if those in pursuit don't have a clear method of cross-checking suspects. It was around 5 times I think they interviewed Sutcliffe without realising it !!
There were lots of "little" words lost in sentences in this-such as be/the or a.
In one line 'they weren't' was repeated twice for no reason as was 'go to' in another.
There were apostrophe mistakes and words running into each other like afterall or moreso. A proper proofread would have easily picked these up. Annoyingly, superindent was misspelt as superindendant every single time it was used. Muesli had a randon x added thus became mueslix.
ALL these mistakes easily meant I knocked one star down.

I am absolutely amazed that this is a debut. I read a lot (an awful lot) of crime fiction and this sits right up there with the best. Well written characters and gripping multiple plot lines without the seemingly obligatory romantic sub plots which take over so many similar books. These characters feel real - noone's a hero, everyone's flawed. Really satisfying and I shall be watching out for more from this author.

I had not got far into this thriller before forming the view that I would probably, when I got to the end, award it five stars. My provisional award was maintained all the way through to the end. The characterisation, and the development of the characters in sync with the plot, were superb: I was disappointed to wave goodbye to them at the end, wherever in the spectrum of "evil baddie" to "good goodie" they stood. The plot had no need to proceed at a frantic pace in order to try to grip the reader in that manner alone. On the contrary, the plot proceeded inexorably all the way through from twist to twist, making it far from easy to put down. In fact, were the book a film I was watching on TV it would passed my quality test, which is getting right through to the end without once feeling like pressing the "time remaining" button.

Gave me the chills - cleverly written. Good use of literary techniques that pulls the reader in to the gruesome plot. Shows the inadequacy and ego of the Canadian police forces really well - not a reflection on reality of course....
