Publisher's Summary

Second edition - approved by the author.

The Bluff City Butcher was once just an urban legend. Now a real monster has stepped out of the fog of a century-old mystery and thrown a midsouth community into unbridled terror. When world renowned forensic pathologist Dr. Elliott Sumner gets the call from the Butcher, he knows he's not dealing with just any serial killer. Not only is the BCB a genius and psychopath, he is the genetic recipient of a legendary mutation some would kill for.

Elliott's battle with his own inner demons could get in the way of stopping the very real monster. But will ending the reign of terror of the Bluff City Butcher solve the century-old mystery? Or will it put an end to the single greatest evolutionary leap for mankind?

A twisty turny rollercoaster of a book.

I enjoy horror as a genre and like reading about murders and forensic cases. The author has a background in this area so his descriptions were very realistic and well-researched. I enjoyed the book and will certainly check out the others in the series.

What I struggled with in the early chapters was just how perfect Dr Elliott Sumner is. I mean seriously! How can he possibly have done all of the things he's meant to have done at his age? I like my heroes to have some flaws - it makes for a rounded character and is more interesting. He's just too perfect to be believable. But once I got past that I really enjoyed the story.

The narrator had a good voice for the subject matter- nice and deep. Some of his pronunciations were 'quirky' but they didn't spoil the book for me.

If you like this genre I recommend that you read this book.

Very good

Audiobook review

I was pulled in instantly to the audiobook version of this story. It’s characters were chunky & good to get to grips with. The storyline was great, I honestly had a completely different idea in my head as to what was going on. The actual happening was a What moment & I loved it.
A good all round thriller murder story
Narrator was very good. Nice deep voice.

Clever story line

A complex and lengthy story written by an expert in the field of bio medicine. A clever storyline which ultimately explains the extraordinary gifts of Dr Elliot Sumner, forensic pathologist and serial killer hunter. This is the first instalment in the Bell Trilogy - it will very be interesting to see how this plays out over the next two books.

Ohmidays!

Well, at times my head was spinning under the different weights of all the various threads weaving the magic carpet of intrigue that is the story of Bluff City Butcher. At the beginning, I wasn't sure how the very disparate stories would come together. But come together they did, and then some. The only negative for me was the narrator, Stephen H. Marsden. Don't misunderstand me, he did a good job, but his accent didn't appeal to me and his pronunciation of Gilgamesh absolutely irritated me, like fingers down a blackboard. But appreciation of accents and different pronunciations of words between the UK and the US is often an obstacle. It certainly wouldn't stop me from recommending this book to other people; it's a very personal preference. An intricate tale, carefully crafted, well done Mr Bradshaw!
