Brilliant debut, highly imaginative and so compelling
The book layout is completely different to anything I've read before. Will's characters are the killer, the victims and the police. What makes it so good is that every one of them is written in first person. That's no mean feat as a writer.
This writer will go from strength to strength and I believe we will be hearing a lot more from Mr. Carver.

Will Carver's debut crime thriller centres around Detective Inspector January David's efforts to catch a serial killer. A tense and often gory read, this will have readers trying to guess who the killer is from page one
