Exactly 11 years ago to the day I bought this as a paperback, now I want to read it again and bought the ebook (easier on the eyes, more convenient).

DNF. It was good and then it became painfully slow. We knew who the killer was, and then our detective got sidetracked by his own personal problems and agendas and I just simply wanted the book to be about a cop catching a psycho killer. So I think for me it was simply the pace—cause if you tell us who the killer is then at least keep the plot focused and interesting by.

I wasn’t enjoying the pace and the excessive racism. I realise this was an older book but … it felt unnecessary

A very enjoyable, gritty crime novel, this is the first of the Jack Caffrey series, and sets the characters up in a strong way. The story is intense, and doesn't let up on the action, whilst also full of twists and turns that keep you guessing until the very end.

Het boek was gruwelijk, vuile/gore details maar erg spannend.
Heb het in 1dag uitgelezen. Zat op het puntje van mijn stoel. Een aanrader maar niet voor gevoelige zieltjes.
