In this second book, there are two acts. The first act is on the point of view of Luc Callanach and the second act has a different point of views from different characters: Ava Turner, Christie Salter, the suspects and the perpetrators.
Edinburgh faced numerous murders within a very short period. With Ava Turner dealing with her own personal life, Callanach decides to investigate on his own. He hires a hacker named Ben Paulson and a journalist Lance Proudfoot to help him find the murderers. They have come into realisation that there are two murderers. Callanach suspects that the things that are written on walls are hints of who the next victim would be and where they would be killed.
We’re dealing with not only one serial killer, hence the story seems lengthy to me. In the middle of it I felt like being dragged to finish the book, but a few chapters in nearly the end of it did thrill me. But when I got to know what happened to the murderers, I didn’t care about the rest of it.
Many people have liked this second book, but this didn’t impress me much and I don’t know whether I’ll read the rest of the series.
Personal note: I’d like to inform that this year will be a historical reading year. Hence I’ll probably review more historical books than Thriller and other fiction.
In the middle of a rock festival, a charity worker is sliced across the stomach. He dies minutes later. In a crowd of thousands, no one saw his attacker. The following week, the body of a primary school teacher is found in a dumpster in an Edinburgh alley, strangled with her own woollen scarf. D.I. Ava Turner and D.I. Luc Callanach have no leads and no motive – until around the city, graffitied on buildings, words appear describing each victim. It’s only when they realise the words are being written before rather than after the murders, that they understand the killer is announcing his next victim…and the more innocent the better.
