Publisher's Summary

Your face is a blur to him. But your body still bleeds.

The Farren family has been a plague upon Philadelphia's most dangerous neighbourhood, the Devil's Pocket, for generations. There, row after row of tumbledown houses hide dark secrets - none darker than Billy, the youngest Farren.

Afflicted by a syndrome that means he can't recognise faces, Billy must use photographs to identify his family - and his victims. And when your life has bled away, he takes a final, gruesome picture for his wall.

But what is the meaning of the horrific ritual Billy enacts with every murder? And is there any connection to a childhood event Detective Kevin Byrne has buried so well it's hidden even from his former partner, Jessica Balzano?

Camera Shy

They usually say if a book is in a series don't they? That was a relatively new feature, sadly, they forgot this book and it is part of a great load of books; I'd recommend starting from the beginning as the relationship between the cop and the DA took a while to nurture.

Apart from that! this was a good thriller whereby a man is bumping off a seemingly random group of people and leaving behind a linen handkerchief with obscure words on it. Great narration, he did The Time Traveller's Wife so he's a pro!
