review 1: This book was perfect for me. Some parts of it actually made me scared which was brilliant because even horror films can't scare me. I love how you get the perspective of the murderer as well as the police, and Lindsay does it in such a way so the reader is actually encouraged to sympathise with the murderer. I found the protagonist endearing. The book had funny as well as dark bits which was lovely. The humour is so dry just like mine, so it was brilliant. One of the most enjoyable books I've ever read, couldn't put it down.
review 2: The hero of this tale is not at first glance your traditional hero. On the wrong side of forty and scarred by horrific experiences in Bosnia and dealing with a complicated love life and frequent overindulgence in alcohol, DS Hutt
... moreon has to cope not only a dangerously deluded serial killer but corruption within the force. The characters were in the main very well drawn, particularly both Hutton himself, who was very believable, and the serial killer, although I felt less convinced by his female superior Miller. (Very) black humour coupled with a strong storyline make for a good read. less

Not a bad book, but the writing wasn't great and detracted from the story.
One of the best cop novels I've read in a long time. Pitch perfect.
I just cannot get into this .... gave up
4.5 stars.
