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).
