I found Death Most Wicked to be a read-in-one-sitting-and-snap-at-Hubby-for-interrupting-me type of story. We can’t stop reading because our hero Mikael Ruskoff must find the serial killer before he kills again and if we stop reading Mikael might not get there in time.
While we are engaged in the mystery of the serial killer and the goopy killer, we have a few other mysteries to contemplate. What is the matter with Bill? Who really is Mikael’s father? Why is someone following Sofia?
All in all, Albracht has set us up for a full series of mysteries with the compassionate Detective Mikael Ruskoff as our hero.
Ruskoff is a detective policeman, and one of the cases that lands on his desk concerns one of the 'ceremonial' killings. It transpires that these ceremonious killings have to do with a sect that is affiliated with Devil Worship, and several key characters in the novel are mixed up in it.
The problem escalates when friends and family members of Ruskoff are implicated too. In fact, Mikail Ruskoff's own paternity is also called into question, when he and his mother start to be more honest with each other about their family history, the sect and its local leader.
Eventually, it is a question of who can trust whom, as people are being wiped out all around the main characters in a frenzy of sectarian and probably revenge killings.
Miss Albracht does a wonderful job of building the tension within Death Most Wicked whenever necessary in the novel. I am not sure, but I think that there are at least two novels in this series, but I have not read the other(s) at this point.
The cover is fitting to the story line, as is the title. In fact, the novel is a very professional package.
I give Death Most Wicked full marks despite a few flaws in the editing, which would not have been picked up by a spelling-checker, and look forward to the sequel(s).
Rather than tell you what the book is about, you can read that in the description and in the other reviews, I want to tell you how I felt while reading this creepy page-turner. I don’t read a lot of horror because I am a big wimp, BUT if the writing is compelling I can’t resist. Author Suzi Albracht sucked me into the story and didn’t let go until the end. I didn’t take any breaks because I couldn’t stop reading. That is the sign of a talented writer. Read this and be astounded by the plot twists and originality contained within this book.
To give you an idea of what to expect, here’s a quote from the first chapter: “And then he felt it…a twitching, squiggly sensation under his eyelid.”
Unlike other horror books, “Death Most Wicked” is not just filled with blood and gore. The author scripts a tight plot, with well-developed characters and enough twists and turns to satisfy any reader of pure crime thrillers. We are given a scenario of serial child kidnappings and murders, but are jolted out of our seats by the rapid discovery that things are quickly spinning out of control, and headed into a soul-crushing darkness.
The detective handling the case is likable, and appears grounded in reality. But we soon start to worry about him. What and whom is he willing to sacrifice in order to bring the criminals to justice? Will he be willing to put his soul at risk? Will he crack under the strain?
This is a tale that keeps you enthralled, and at the end, you are definitely yearning for more!
