I really wanted it to be a four or five star story, and it has the bones to be such a story, but the actual formatting of the book, as I read it on my Kindle, was well under par. Halfway through a page, the scene would suddenly change, and the character point of view would change. The point of views jumped around so much that at times, I had to track back to see who/what I was reading. Highly disconcerting. Maybe the chapters became muddled when the manuscript was uploaded to Amazon? Or perhaps a small re-gig of the page breaks or chapter structure would really help a good story become an excellent story.
My only other question was how did the killer got his hands on the drugs - it's never addressed in the story. How did he have access to the stuff he used?
As I said, I wanted this to be a four or five star story, but the formatting lets it down. Hopefully an easy fix for the author.
Back to the main story and we find Murphy and Dixon embroiled in the search for a particularly brutal and sadistic killer, whose crimes gradually escalate as he undergoes what I would term a psychotic break as each killing begins to outdo the previous ones as he begins to believe inhis own invulnerability from beig apprehended. The story moves along at a crisp pace with enough twists and turns to keep the reader turning pages, even though we know the identity of the killer. How the police go about identifying him and attempting to bring his to justice forms the basis of the story, which the author handles deftly and without allowing the reader to lose interest for a minute.
This was a thoroughly enjoyable read, and I'm happy to award it five stars, very well deserved!
I think a change of cover and a look at a couple of other minor issues and this could be a five star read.
I really enjoyed the story and liked how a "lesser" investigation into someone poisoning dogs ran alongside the main hunt for a violent killer. Along with snippets of the victims', suspects' and police officers' private lives it gave the book a solid rounded feel. The characters were believable and likeable/unlikeable as appropriate. The book held my interest with a steady pace and had a lovely rhythm with rises of suspense. I particularly liked the author's style of writing and I think the changes between characters and action worked really well. I would certainly read any future books with this detective team.
However there were a few distracting issues, such as chapter headings in the middle of the page and occassional missing words. While these didn't prevent me from thoroughly enjoying the read they have reduced my rating of what is a very good book. If they were addressed I would not hesitate to raise my rating to 5 stars.
