I don’t know who recommended this one to me but good call. It’s an interesting psychological thriller with a man who kills two girls and how he’s found out, the story is told from three points of view, the killer, the criminal psychologist and a woman who is in a psychiatric institution who might know more about the murders than others think.

I liked this one, I liked the characters and their flaws and how the killer was actually clever until he slipped up just enough. Worth reading. ( )

A very well-written crime thriller, this. It certainly travels at a fast pace and holds a reader’s interest to the end. A little above the usual too, as regards the psychology of the characters. Can’t say much more because of the nature of the genre (well, the butler did it). If you liked Kay Scarpetta and Sara Lund, you’ll like this.
Also for Irish readers it’s good to see the Garda and Dublin feature, instead of New York and LA all the time. ( )
