Want To Play? product reviews

An old couple knelt side by side in an otherwise empty small-town church - their heads resting on their hands in a picture of devotion. Both had small, tidy bullet holes in the backs of their skulls.

To local police, their slaying looks like a one-off act of retribution.

At the same time, in Minneapolis, teams of detectives are scrambling to stop a sickeningly inventive serial killer striking again in a city paralysed by fear.

No one makes a connection.

But when the two separate investigations converge on an isolated Catholic boarding school, decades-old secrets begin to fall away. it seems an old killer has resurfaced. But one whose identity still remains dangerously out of reach.

Crackling dialog, pace and rich vivid characters all distinguish this electrifying debut thriller.

Make sure you've locked your door...

All the way through this book I was thinking I had a handle on things and knew what was being done, to and by, whom... boy, was I ever WRONG!

A well executed storyline and rich characters made this a book I was glad to pick up. I am a reasonably avid follower of 'Reality shows' and like to read about cops and crimes and how the one works to solve the other, but but this is the first book I have read that has had an added 'Twist in the Tale' as it were... Although the story did take a little time to pick up, when it did I found myself being carried along effortlessly.

This one is a strange book. All the way through, you think you have a handle on things and know who's doing what to whom... but you're WRONG!

A good sized book, with a great plot, well executed storyline and rich characters, this has to be a must-read over the fine weather summer days. Sling the hammock, grab the jugs of iced drink or beer, and settle back for an awesome way to blow a day away.

But, beware, no details are left unspoken, and this IS a book about catching a serial killer, so be ready for some gore and intimate meetings with dead people.
