Before I get into the review of this crime fiction novel it is important note that while the author gives background to her significant characters that have appeared previously in other books, I believe to `fully enjoy' this novel, one needs to have read `Retribution' and `Last Witness'. While these books cannot be called a true series, the characters such as CJ Townsend and Bill Bantling, seem to `populate' all three books with their traits, working practice and have their own narrative framed within the text of each story told.

That said I found this a pretty high strung thriller set against a frame work of the sick and depraved world of inflicted suffering and snuff clubs. Some of the main ingredients are very good attention to detail by using some sharp dialogue, well researched legal and forensic practice. The narrative is `crisp' and the relationships forged between the lawyer Daria di Bianchi and detective is well managed and convincing.
In part the story takes one to the edge-of-the-seat. For me the ending was a genuine surprise.

I would recommend this book to any crime/thriller readers. It has the suspense that is 100% required. The characters become quite endearing and you hear yourself saying ''I hope they aren't murdered, I would quite like them to survive and life on'' but you never know who will be next.
The writer writes in a style that is interesting and that makes you not just want but 'need' to carry on turning the pages.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, I have never read a Jilliane Hoffman novel before but I certainly will be looking out for these novels again as thy are right up my street.
Very impressed

I have read all of Jilliane Hoffman's books and have never been less than impressed. She has produced two books featuring prosecutor C.J Townsend and two stand alone books. This fifth release is a mixture of the two. We see Assistant State Attorney Daria Bianchi and Detective Manny Alvarez work a case that involves a snuff club. We also see the return of C.J Townsend just before the halfway mark in this book.

Daria and Manny make for fantastic reading as they both have such unique personalities. Manny Alvarez is a veteran cop whose nickname is The Bear and Daria is a hot-headed Italian woman trying to make her mark in the world. They make a great team and at the start of the book we see them clash heads as they uncover what looks to be a dangerous game of men watching women be raped and then murdered in the so called snuff-club.

The re-introduction of C.J and the serial killer on death row Bill Bantling aka `Cupid' had me reading a lot quicker that I thought. As it has been a while since I read the CJ books I worried I would lose the thread but the plot is re-covered for the benefit of those having not read previous books. As I read on I remembered why Jilliane's books always had me hooked. They are extremely dark reading and I always find myself feeling the fear as much as the characters as we see the chase for the suspects who are cursed with these sick and perverted minds.

The story has a lot going on and there are numerous threads that are woven in to the story including past crimes committed and the involvement of Bill Bantling, the serial killer on Death Row. At around the ¾ mark the pace picks up considerably and I continued reading until I was done. I was both shocked and pleased by the time I had finished.

This book kept me hooked from the first page to the last.
The author has a very good knowledge of American criminal law, and it is obvious.
The plot was excellent and I just could not put the book down.
The ONLY thing is ... my fault ... I did not check first that this book needs to be read in the correct sequence.
I still have Retribution to read, and the second book called Last Witness, and I realise now that some of those stories will be less of a mystery because I have read about the cases in The Cutting Room.
Nevertheless, I am still going to read them because the author's style of writing is so good and I know I will enjoy her first two books just as much as The Cutting Room.

I lapped up the last great Jilliane Hoffman,"Retribution", starring CJ Townsend- the brilliant prosecutor; in which she is determined to bring down serial killer Bill Bantling and succeeds with able detective Dominick Falconetti and husband by her side; it seems however, that justice has come at a price and CJ has moved on. The cutting Room introduces in her place, feisty prosecutor Daria BiAnchi reluctantly (at first) teaming up with Manny Alvarez as her nominated dectective on a really hot case. (Manny is also the ex-colleague of both CJ and Dominick).

This new, chilling psychological thriller finds Daria faced with a horrific murder, a wealthy accused and flimsy evidence. However, fresh evidence is presented from a strange source but leads back to an old crime and brings the circle back round to CJ. Daria and Manny must use all their resources to crack this case, no matter how much they hate dealing with the devil himself - Bill Bantling.

This is again a very well written, edge-of-the-seat thriller and just when you thought it was safe to get out of the water.....Yup, its one of these "can't put down", relaly good detective thrillers. Cannot recommend it more highly and cannot wait for the next Hoffman - soon please! The Cutting Room
