by Matt Drabble
It has been 8 years since the country cowered in fear as the serial killer christened The Crucifier wreaked bloody havoc.
Jane Parkes had always considered her ability a fine line between a gift and a curse. She calls it The Shadow World, a place where she can see through the eyes of killers and help bring them to justice.
Her desperation to prove herself led to a basement confrontation that she wasn’t prepared for. As a result the Detective that had allowed her to work on the case lay dead alongside the killer.
She put away her ability to see inside the minds of monsters for 8 long years, but now someone else has taken up The Crucifiers’ mantle. Someone is killing again, only this time The Shadow World is a two way street and he wants to play.
Sucked into a desperate race for survival Jane is going to learn that sometimes when you stare into the darkness, someone stares back.
This is not the first Matt Drabble book that I have reviewed and I sure hope it is not the last! Talk about creepy, psychological fun! Drabble's books have a way to keep you guessing and this one is no exception. Maybe it's because I am a huge fan of the horror genre, whether we're talking books or movies, but I love being taken on a roller coaster ride of suspense and fear. Jane Parkes has a fantastic (and horrifying) gift in being able to see through the eyes of a murderer which she uses to help bring some justice for the victim. This book is a nonstop thrill ride - I highly enjoyed it!
Read if horror and suspense are your thing.
Sometimes when you stare at the darkness, someone stares back.
I love that!
