About the Book: Seven days after being abducted, the body of a twenty-year-old woman is found on a green patch of grass by the Los Angeles International Airport. She has been left with her limbs stretched out and spread apart, placing her in a five-point human star.
The autopsy reveals that she had been murdered in a most terrible way. But the surprises don’t end there.
Detective Robert Hunter, who leads LAPD’s Special Section, Ultra Violent Unit, is assigned the case. But almost immediately a second body turns up. Hunter knows he has to be quick.
Surrounded by new challenges as every day passes, Detective Hunter finds himself chasing a monster. A predator whose past hides a terrible secret, whose desire to hurt people and thirst for murder can never be quenched – for he is DEATH.
My Review: This is the 7th book in the Robert Hunter series and whilst it can be read as a standalone, in my opinion, why would you when there are 6 brilliant books to devour before you get to this one?
There isn’t much I can add to this review except each book gets better than the previous and each serial killer gets sicker and more gruesome. I read most of this book with my face scrunched up in disgust at the horrific and twisted murders and believe me it takes a LOT to make me cringe.
So if you like fast paced, gripping and really disgusting serial killer thrillers, have a strong stomach and don’t mind gore – you should 100% read this incredible series.
