Publisher's summary

“Because us? Psychopaths and Sinners...we don’t need fixing, Gray.” (Martin)

Three bodies, three mutilations, each one with something...unusual inserted into the wounds. The deaths are enough to leave Ash Thomas scrambling around to find someone to trust as the murders hit so close to home and heart.

For Gray Raoul, MI5 director of G-Branch, the deaths offer something else: A fall back into a familiar life where culling serial killers caters to his own darker mindset. But the farther Gray moves away from home, the more he realises serial killer games in the field are nothing compared to who he has locked up back at home. Sometimes walking the fine line between psychopaths and live-in lovers is a far darker game.

For Ash, that might just mean he’s on his own now, facing a killer who has a deadly fascination for dangerous young men and dancing holly blue butterflies over their skin.

A wild and twisted ride

Now everything from #4 makes sense, relatively. Love the series. No idea where everything is going nor where it will end up. Previously I had difficulty understanding Dan Calley’s strong accent. Stupid me finally figured out, it would be helpful to slow down the speech. That was a great move for me.

great book

Another great instalment in this series. I just can’t get enough of it. I loved the characters very much. I love getting to know more of Gray, who has always been such an intriguing character. It was mostly slow pace but the story was interesting enough to keep me hook to it all the time.

The plot was fantastic. I love the way the main character’s stories connect. Even though I love the characters, that mostly is only when I talk about Gray, Jack and Jan. I liked Ash and Raif but I can’t say I loved them the way I loved the others. Ash was particularly interesting. I miss Jack terribly. I guess it just reflect the way Jan and Gray feel, but it was so bittersweet the few moments when I get to see him.

I alternate the reading and listening. I’m very impressed by the narrator abilities to create all this different characters. It was so easy to say who was who and they were so many that I was worry I would get confused. Perfectly paced. I loved the accents so much. Great narration. So perfect for the book. I keep thinking Gray is the one who has the prettiest voice.

disturbing

Would I listen to it again: yes
Did the story keep me engaged: yes
Was I invested in the characters: yes

Story comment: pace on this one is a little slower than it's predecessors but the plot was still interesting enough to keep me hooked. The story-lines for Ash/Raife and Grey/Jack/Jan came together organically and worked to tie the two together for another amazing roll-a-coaster ride that didn't let up until the end.

Narrator comment: Dan Calley's narration continues to be on the mark for these characters. He knows them now and that familiarity comes through as he breathes life and emotion into the suspense and intrigue of the story.

Can’t wait for the next one♥️

Jack & Dan are amazing again, I am so obsessed with this series. I am now counting the day’s until the next audio release I need more but Dan is just too good to open my Kindle on this one. I love a perfect author narration match

This story is so addicting, the writing fantastic and I have never picked up anything like it before - thank you Jack L Pyke I don’t know how you do it

Converging plotlines

The prequel to this book introduced me to Ash and Raif. One is a young man lacking a firm direction while the other is a grizzled older cop who has way too many secrets. One is an open book, and one needs a cypher to uncover their secrets. When Ash’s friend Johnny died, Ash was devastated and didn’t believe it was suicide. But believing and proving are two different things. In this book, Raif takes point in trying to find the man who is killing people and leaving insects in the mortal wounds. Entomophilia – sex with insects. Okay, now I think I’ve heard everything. Apparently being feasted on by fire ants while orgasming is a thing. Well, no kink shaming. But when this monster kills someone close to Raif, it’s not just devastating, it’s horrific. So many lives affected by one single act of depravity.

Paralleled to the Raif/Ash storyline is the Gray/Jan/Jack/Martin plotline. Note, Martin is still playing a central role with Jack virtually consigned to oblivion. I’m beginning to despair of ever having him back. But hope lives strong because the series isn’t over. Anyway, Jan is still having a difficult time coming with the aftermath of the kidnapping and rape. He’s managed to kick the heroin habit but only with the help of methadone. One missed dose and he’s back to being dope sick. Maybe kicked the habit is too strong a sentiment. It’s being managed medically. I want him back to health, but until he deals with the really tough stuff, he’s not likely to get better. Then there’s Gray. Stalwart and stoic Gray. Always sticking his nose into other people’s business. He’s MI5 so he can get away with some of that. But it’s dangerous work and not without risks to his and those he loves.

This book is as disturbing as the others, to be sure. And it’s a highly addictive series. I’m invested in these men. I despaired when Ash’s father hurts him. I sat on the edge of my seat when the serial killer had Ash and Chase in his grasp. I ached to soothe the hurt wrought by a damaged and deranged man. I have to say there was a certain level of satisfaction with the resolution of that plotline, but there are plenty of loose threads that have yet to be sewn together and resolved. There is still another serial killer Gray is tracking. I’d almost forgotten about the liquefaction of organs by noise emitted through headphones. I would say it was too far fetched, but these days anything is possible.

While Ash and Raif have their happy ending with their new makeshift family, there’s plenty left to resolve with the Jack/Martin plotline. If I sound repetitive, I think I’m justified. Jack was the central character in Don’t, and I’ve watched him endure so much. I want to believe he will come out the other side of this trauma, but with Jack Pyke, I’m never quite sure of what I’m going to get. This book was another mind f- – in a good way. I listen to these books expecting dark and twisted, and I’m never disappointed.

Again, the brilliant Dan Calley narrated this great book. He came into my world with these books, and I’ve heard him narrate several other books now and I’m even more of a fan. He hits every note perfectly, giving each man a distinct voice, carrying the tension through the story. I am always thrilled when I see he’ll be performing the narration on a book.

Okay, I’m poised for the next book. I know it’ll be a mind f- and I can’t wait.

Best Psycho MM series!

5 Blue Roses
5 Blue Flames

Narrator Dan Calley absolutely fulfilled every expectation of this highly anticipated psychological thriller. He filled every page with buckets full of suspense and intrigue. His deep dark voice is simultaneously scary and sexy, as he has an extraordinary talent to switch between multiple English dialects. When he narrates a book, I submerge myself in the story and forget that I’m listening, while I get sucked into the craziness of the circus.

Book 5, of the Don’t series was filled with one dramatic scene after the other. I am in love with all these conflicted characters. This book felt like the crossroads. The coming together of Gray, Jan, Jack/Martin plotline including Ash, Raif and Chase and th
