Raise The Blade is a psychological noir novella and is Tess Makovesky's debut. Well, what a fantastically creepy debut it is! Duncan in a serial killer, but his methods are quite different to most. He doesn't go out to hunt his prey, he waits for them to come to him. And they do. He leaves his name and address on a trail of duct-taped victims and those who find the bodies can't help but want to see who this man is for themselves, before calling the police. They each have their own story and their own reasons why, but they're just walking straight in to his trap. Will any of them realise before it's too late. As a rational human being I can't imagine finding a dead body and wanting to confront a possible serial killer rather than call the authorities and let them deal with it, but human psychology is a fascinating subject and each of these people's reason's for doing so are oddly plausible. It makes for a compelling read which grabbed me from the very first page and kept me gripped throughout. Very cleverly written with fascinating characters. Brilliant! I highly recommend.
