It’s not a big secret that I absolutely love the grittiness that is the world of crime but eventually the novels tend to all become a blur. The same procedural formula is used time and time again - which is not a bad thing as crime fiction is the biggest selling genre in the world. However, Chris Carter has shook things up with his debut novel “The Crucific Killer”. The first scene is a flash forward where we see Garcia - the rookie partner - is caught in one of the killer’s traps and Hunter only has so long to save not only Garcia’s life but his own too. It draws you in perfectly. From the first chapter, I was on the edge of my seat and determined to finish the book just so I could know who the killer was!
Using his experiences as a criminal psychologist, Carter has managed to create three dimensional characters as well as a fluid plot with just the right amount of twists and turns to keep the audience guessing. Hunter is your typical flawed but genius detective.Read more ›
Overall it was a brilliant read which I couldn't put down and it had me hooked from the beginning. I found all the characters interesting and I would never have guessed the ending.
Another series added to my list, well done Chris Carter and I look forward to reading 'The Executioner' which is already waiting for me on my Kindle.
The only thing left to say is please don't take any notice of the the negative reviews on here, I know we don't all like the same sort of books but in my opinion some of the comments are unjustified. Try it for yourself you will not be disappointed.
This is very much a debut novel. We are introduced to the great Robert Hunter and his methods. Hunter is an expert in psychology, who is working within the police and tackling the really horrific crimes on his patch. He was a child genius. You know the sort; a real clever clogs, with letters to his name. He is a nice chap though. He is joined by a new sidekick, Garcia. A man has been executed via the death penalty and it looks like they got the wrong culprit. Identical macabre crimes are being committed once again. The Crucifix Killer has returned. Will Hunter get to the truth this time?
Although I guessed the identity of the killer fairly easily, I loved it. I do read A LOT of crime, which makes me a Miss Marple in the making. I am very easily suspicious of characters who behave in ‘certain’ ways. I am being deliberately cryptic here. I don’t want to give the game away. The gore level is high, brutal and sickening. At one point, my stomach was in my mouth. Chris Carter does that so well. I could picture it all. Sometimes my imagination needs to be less graphic.
This is great, really GREAT! Well worth a read, if you haven’t encountered Chris Carter yet.
i love Robert hunter and Garcia characters,how they work well together and how they got along with each other.
this book had be on the edge of my seat trying to work out who was killing people and why they was doing it,some parts had me thinking and some parts had me in shock horror.For me this book has you in suspense and i love this about the story as it always a me thinking about it
I read some of the reviews, tried a sample and decided I had to read more. Ok it's another detective chasing down a serial killer but the things the killer does to the victims is somewhat evil and the author describes the details in great depth. You soon understand how frustrating the detectives get at no evidence being left behind for them to get a good lead on who could do such heinous things to another human and is one sick individual. You really are left hanging until the end on who the killer is. I'm looking forward to reading my next novel by this author.
