Publisher's Summary

When the body of a young woman is discovered in a derelict cottage in the middle of Los Angeles National Forest, Homicide Detective Robert Hunter finds himself entering a horrific and recurring nightmare. Naked, strung from two wooden posts, the victim was sadistically tortured before meeting an excruciatingly painful death. All the skin has been ripped from her face - while she was still alive. On the nape of her neck has been carved a strange double cross: the signature of a psychopath known as the Crucifix Killer.

But that's impossible. Because two years ago, the Crucifix Killer was caught and executed. Could this therefore be a copycat killer? Or could the unthinkable be true? Is the real killer still out there, ready to embark once again on a vicious and violent killing spree, selecting his victims seemingly at random, taunting Robert Hunter with his inability to catch him?

Hunter and his rookie partner are about to enter a nightmare beyond imagining.

A great start

I've read Chris Carter out of order over and over. This is a great introduction to a superb team with the best grisly imagination on the planet.

NOT X-Files' Chris Carter. Immensely disappointing

Firstly - Audible have listed X-Files under 'by the same author'. The author's own website show's its NOT the same person. I've only ever had good experience with Audible so I suspect this was laziness rather than deliberate but please, Audible, find some way of un-linking this as this served as an endorsement that it shouldn't have.

Secondly - the book itself. Some readers have left fantastic reviews but I found this a very disappointing read. Hunter (The hero of the piece) was just too good to be true; Garcia, his obligatory rookie partner existed solely to (Very mechanically) enable Hunter to demonstrate his brilliance. Conjured images of 60s TV series of Batman - several times Garcia may as well have thumped his hand in realisation and let out a "Holy crime solving Hunter."
Formulaic, predictable, unsophisticated. Reminiscent of Blue Book 2: Watch Peter Jump. Gave this one star only because I couldn't work out how to give it no stars.

Disappointing

A good plot, written to an average standard and with weak dialogue. The reader made the best of a bad job.... It was still a bad job.

Somewhat gory but keeps the attention

It’s an attention grabbing story, perhaps a little too long but enjoyable, nonetheless. I don’t normally care for American thrillers but this was well read in a pleasant accent
