My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is most definitely a book that started with a WOW….
Within the first few pages I was thinking…if this is how it starts, I am sure going to enjoy this and the author did not disappoint.
The story is about a serial killer that is using Greek mythology to carry out his murders. Captain Papacosta and Lieutenant Ioli team up to try and catch this killer. They travel around to the different Greek Islands, teaming up with the local police to help stop this madman before he kills again.
The back story into Captain Papacosta is heartbreaking but ultimately all too real. I felt that the character development was believable and defined nicely. Each character had their own unique edge and I enjoyed getting to know them.
The plot was well paced and kept me turning the page. This was one book that I did not want to put down until I was down. The twists and turns that kept coming made it even more intriguing.
I enjoyed the insight into each of the victims and the murder scenes were sickening and quite gruesome. All the better for a horror story. The murders were heinously creative.
I enjoyed reading Papacosta and Ioli’s process of trying to solve the crime, it was as though I was engrossed in a crime show, and it was quite realistic.
This is one of those books that make you second guess things and gives you a great deal of insight into some of the sickening and disturbing things that human beings are more than capable of doing.
Excellent book! If you like murder, mystery and creative wickedness, then you must read this book! I can’t wait to read number 2!
