In my opinion...
It is grim, dark and horrific, I cringed and read it through my fingers- but couldn’t put this novel down.
I don’t normally ‘do’ gruesome and I don’t ‘enjoy’ reading about serial killers, but this book was different. It races along with a very strong plot, and unpredictable twists, as well as, surprisingly, humour.
The main character, Wolf, although troubled is very appealing, and his sidekick, Emily, has a proper role to play in the story.
Former paramedic Daniel Cole, writes with authority and credibility, and it comes as no surprise that this memorable debut has already been sold to a production company, as well as being signed up for a three book deal. I think we are going to be hearing a lot more about him in the future.
Thank you NetGalley and Orion Publishing Group for my ARC
