I have waited so long to meet Jake Boulder and boy did he not disappoint! Graham Smith has introduced us to a new character in a truly great read. I wasn't too sure at first as I love the authors Harry Evans books but it didn't take me long to be converted. Based in Utah, Jake is called to help his friend Alphonso investigate the murder of a woman he knew well. Murders continue to happen and the serial killer becomes known as The Watcher. With a less than adequate police team, Jake becomes central to the investigation. How he works his way through the evidence and clues is fascinating. So many different methods of murder make for gruesome reading but the whole book is just brilliant. Real bum clenching scenes which had me having to stop reading for a minute a few times. The last few chapters were some of the best I have ever read, I was so engrossed that at times I had to remind myself to breath.
I cannot wait for the next book in this series. Jake Boulder is here to stay!

Normally I avoid US based crime novels; its an irrational thing and it hasn’t always been the case. I’ve read books by Kellerman, Patterson, Reichs, Coben, Barclay (yes I know he’s kind of Canadian) but I’ve grown to prefer UK based stories – it must be my brain wanting to picture the British countryside and busy cities that I’m familiar with. Thankfully I know Graham Smith can write a cracking crime story so it couldn’t be that bad!
“Its homicide not murder”
Obviously fans of Mr Smith’s books will want to draw comparisons between Boulder and Evans; I admit I did. But JAKE BOULDER IS NOT HARRY EVANS!!! Boulder is a lot younger and fitter. And there seems to be a chink in Mr Boulder’s armour – his mum. He’s a good lad and looks after his mum but I get the impression he’s a wee bit scared of her!
There is definitely a different feel to Watching the Bodies compared to the Harry Evans series. I don’t know if its because there is a more compact team running the show or that our hero isn’t your typical cop, in fact he’s not a cop at all, he’s a hard man paid to break up fights in bars. However Watching the Bodies is packed with intrigue. The pace is there from the off with the short chapters and the race against time to find “The Watcher”.
This is going to sound a little bit weird but I really loved the whole selection process the killer has got going on. He’s a bit sick in the head but he’s thorough and methodical. And his identity definitely kept me guessing – I trusted no-one other than our man Jake!! Everyone was under suspicion!!
Graham Smith has definitely created a character in Jake and I am going to love following him as he chases around catching the bad guys.
A massive thank you to Bloodhound books for my copy of Watching the Bodies. I can’t wait to see what Graham Smith has in store for Jake in the next instalment.

A new character has sprung from the pen of Graham Smith and if this book is anything to judge by there is another success. Set in America both the settings,characters and dialogue are evident of well researched and carefully constructed plots and characters .
Another winning combination I look forward to reading a lot more about Jake Boulder and his contemporaries

The Jake Boulder series is one to watch. In a small US town, the Chief of Police who is exasperated by the ineptitude of his hick detectives enlists the help of Jake Boulder to help catch a serial killer. Jake, who when he is not at work sorting out barroom brawls is assisting his friend Alfonso a private investigator who happens to have been hired by the father of one of the killers victim. The victim is also a past lover of Jake. Yes there is a lot going on in this book to ensure that you will not be able to put it down so easy.

Another Bloodhound Books discovery, another great writer and another very promising series. When a serial killer strikes in small town America, Jake Boulder is asked by his PI friend to help solve the crimes, as the local police prove to be totally incompetent! Jake is a fascinating creation, a tough guy who can look after himself and who is able to dodge death. The book is well-written, fast-paced and a real page turner. The killer's method of choosing his victims is ingenious. More please!

Good combination of brain and brain. A few too many bodies but a pretty good engaging read for all that

Worth a read, keeps you guessing! Was expecting a bit more from the ending but maybe that's because I didn't want to put it down.
