Red. A very addictive read by Gary Stewart
There are plenty of serial killer books around and judging from the length of this one, I didn't think that it would be as good as others that I have previously read. I was wrong. The book is written at such a pace that you never really have time to catch your breath, it's so absorbing. The crimes committed by the antagonist are detailed in such a gory fashion. You need two hands to read this book, one to hold onto your Kindle and the other to cover your gaping mouth as you read on.
This is the first book from Steven Lytton that I have read, I'm sure I'll be back for more!
