A change from the normal Stuart MacBride books. The story was great and the end unexpected. The characters were unusual.

Stuart Macbride is a favourite author of mine. All his books have some sort of twist and l really enjoy them though l don't imagine they would appeal to the fainthearted.....

A good read. It goes a at a breakneck speed. Only downside is that it's over to quickly.

This was the first time I had read a novel by Stuart MacBride (coincidentally, I`d noticed it at the library having just seen in WH Smith`s that another of his books was no. 1 in the bestsellers` list) and I wasn`t disappointed!

The subject matter (a serial killer who chops off the arms and legs of his young female victims before killing them, and who is being pursued across America by not just law enforcement, but also by a gang of psychos who were recruited by a mobster since the killer`s latest capture is the mobster`s daughter - sic and sick! ) is truly horrendous and shocking, but what I really enjoyed about this book is how the author managed to write such a gruesome story in such an amusing, upbeat way! Despite the sickening killings, beatings and amputations littered throughout the story (which is only a 111-page novel, and can be read in under 2 hours), I found myself laughing aloud at his sarcastic "asides", eg, `the couple lived in a crappy hotel with hot and cold running cockroaches` and `it`s amazing what a witness who couldn`t remember anything and didn`t want to get involved, suddenly remembered and told us when held upside down off the top floor of a car park` etc. The characterisation is also very good.

Believe me, this is brutal, nasty stuff, so not for the squeamish, but it`s written in a truly enjoyable style and almost unbelievably had me in hoots of laughter some of the time!
