P. D. Martin lives in Melbourne, Australia and developed a passion for crime fiction and storytelling at an early age. Body Count is her first novel and has achieved international success.
A great thriller with a brilliant plot line. Again we have Agent Sophie Anderson tracking down serial killers. Through the transcripts from a chat room we follow the plans of a group of serial killers as they murder a group of specially selected victims. The killers and the reader are always one step ahead of the cops which adds to the tension as we watch the good guys trying to figure out just exactly what they are facing. A superb page turner, gripping and unsettling this is great read.
You may think an FBI profiler with psychic visions seems a bit far fetched but this is a brilliant crime thriller and the ‘visions’ Agent Sophie Anderson gets only add to the tension and gruesomeness. Sophie is getting inside the mind of a killer as well as in the minds of the victims, feeling the thrill of the kill and the horror of being the hunted one. This is the first in what looks to become a great new series.
