The Blurb

Brilliant. Complicated. Psychopath.

That’s the Four Monkey Killer or ‘4MK’. A murderer with a twisted vision and absolutely no mercy.

Detective Sam Porter has hunted him for five long years, the recipient of box after box of grisly trinkets carved from the bodies of 4MK’s victims.

But now Porter has learnt the killer’s twisted history and is racing to do the seemingly impossible – find 4MK’s latest victim before it’s too late…

My Thoughts

I love a good serial killer and the 4MK is certainly that. A well constructed book with some great twists and some great characters that make it a fantastic read which you will fly through. The book is written across 2 time frames, the present with Sam Porter continuing his 5 year chase of the 4MK Killer and a undetermined time frame of the killers diary. This book will be a huge hit and doubtlessly sell millions and deservedly so. My only gripe was the diary segments, not nearly as good as the hunt for the killer and rather "hammy", I had Mr Burns from the Simpsons as my narrator reading those chapters.

Enjoyable book. Recommended.
