The book is written mostly from the perspective of the teams uncovering's, who are working with Lucas to find out who the Mechanic is and why have the killings started after a three year gap! I particularly liked his partner Bassano, not only did they make a great team, the character combination seemed an effortless read, and they gelled so well together.
Lucas is clear and precise in his thinking and is engaging. He wants to stop the Mechanic as quickly as possible, especially as each targeted family is a multi hit.
I was soon immersed in the storylines with the gritty and assured nature of the murders and although told mostly from Police Perspective it isn't dripping in details of technicalities.
This truly is an exceptional read, with a serial killer with a fascinating way of hunting the victims. which kept me involved with the plot and hooked all the way through.
This book is an impressive debut novel, and it isn't often that the first book in a series gets a 5 star rating, as you know the next will have the layers of intrigue set, but this is so clever, devious and twisty, that it deserves a 5 star.
I’m a sucker for a well depicted serial killer and the Mechanic certainly fits the bill. Oh my goodness what a character the author has created one of the most intriguing serial killers I’ve read about in a long time, they are one twisted individual and to their motives for the killings, I couldn’t help having a smidgen of sympathy for them. The Chapters from the killer give you insight to this very troubled and damaged character, from these chapters I felt like I was in the Killers head looking into the darkest and most troubled corners of the human mind which made for a blood chilling read and a couple of restless nights sleep. The crimes committed are gruesome but in the authors defence these scenes never felt gratuitous within the context of the story
Those that Remain has so many great characters I especially liked Lucas’s he’s not you typical stereotype detective for a start he’s counting down the days to retirement, so I found his character a refreshing change from the “kick ass” Detectives that are the norm in many a crime thriller. I’m not going to go into plot details as I would hate to give away spoilers, but what I will say is this novel certainly made for a gripping and unpredictable read that will chill you to the bones. In my opinion it’s one of those books you just don’t want to put down as each chapter leaves you desperately wanting more, it moves along at a fast pace with so many twist and turns my head was spinning.
There were so many elements that made this book an exciting read, unique characters, an intricate plot, and a dash of dark humour. I was extremely intrigued by the profiling side of things, who knew there were so many different types of serial killers? I have one question for the author “why, oh why did it take you so darn long to get published?” I just love it when a book leaves you wanting more, and I couldn’t contain my excitement when I found out I’m not going to have too wait long for the second book in this series as it’s published on the 13th July 2017. If you are looking for a new crime thriller to read then look no further than Those That Remain I promise you won’t be disappointed.
