The Collector – Fiona Cummins (The Bone Collector #2)

About the Book: A taut and terrifying psychological thriller from a the author of Rattle

The Collector by Fiona Cummins is the gripping sequel to Rattle.

Jakey escaped with his life and moved to a new town. His rescue was a miracle but his parents know that the Collector is still out there, watching, waiting…

Clara, the girl he left behind, is clinging to the hope that someone will come and save her.

Life has fallen apart for Clara’s mother as she starts to lose hope.

The Bone Collector has a new apprentice to take over his family’s legacy. But he can’t forget the boy who got away and the detective who had destroyed his dreams.

Detective Etta Fitzroy’s life collapsed when the Collector escaped. With Clara still missing, and a new wave of uncannily similar murders beginning, will she be able to find him again?

The Collector is back and this time he has nothing to lose . . .

My Review:  I read and LOVED Rattle in December 2016 – (see my review here) so I was very excited to find out there was a sequel published in January 2018.  My only regret is not reading it sooner.

The Collector is the sequel to Rattle and in my opinion it probably won’t work as a standalone and therefore would strongly recommend reading Rattle first.

Once again this is a really disturbing and thoroughly gruesome story about a serial killer targeting young children with bone disorders, disfigurements and disabilities.  I was reading the book whilst having my nails done this morning and actually cringed and shivered so violently during a distressing scene that my nail technician thought she had injured me!

If you’ve read Rattle, then expect the same – chilling, gripping and disturbing, yet addictive and a brilliant sequel.  Highly recommended.
