I am delighted to share my review with you today on blog tour for The Alphabet Murders by Lars Schutz which is out now
FOR THIS KILLER, IT’S A GAME OF A B C
Criminal profilers Jan Grall and Rabea Wyler are assigned the gruesome case of a man found murdered in a wildlife park. Later, two more bodies are found, both brutally mutilated, and authorities soon realise that the victims are linked by the letters of the alphabet tattooed on their skin.
Then the killer strikes again and Grall and Wyler receive a mysterious package containing a blood-encrusted scrap of skin marked with a letter. And when Grall’s hotel room is marked with a Z, the race is on to find out who this vicious killer is. Before it’s too late . . .
A tense and exciting serial killer thriller by debut author, Lars Schutz.
The Alphabet Murders is exactly what it says it is when we meet Jan and Rabea on the hunt for the killer who is playing a deadly gruesome game.
We follow a story that alternates between Jan and Rabea and one of the victims. in this rather complex and disturbing story. I have to admit that I am not normally a fan of books that have been translated into English. Trying to get my head round some of the characters names and locations.But that wasn’t the case with this book.
The author brings us a dark and twisty read that will have you hooked from start to finish, with plenty of squeamish moments. This is a well thought out story that will keep you guessing until the end. The whole time I was reading it I couldn’t help but think that this would make an excellent film.
This is a brilliant debut novel which I highly recommend.
