Broken Angels by Graham Masterton
  

Lovereading view...

Part horror, part thriller and a good, fast-paced police procedural tale but definitely not a book for the faint-hearted. It’s about the Catholic abuse of boys but it goes deeper than that for the background to the crimes is the forming of a choir made angelic by castrating pre-pubescent boys. You need a strong stomach for this; nothing is left to the imagination.

If you like Graham Masterton you might also like to read books by Mo Hayder, Tana French and Peter May.

Synopsis

Broken Angels by Graham Masterton

One cold spring morning in County Cork, two fishermen find a bundle of rags floating in the Blackwater River: the mutilated corpse of a retired music teacher. His hands and feet are bound, and his neck bears the mark of a garrotting wire.The Garda want to wrap this case up before the press get hold of it. But when a second man is found murdered, the body bears all the same marks as the first. And Detective Superintendent Katie Maguire fears this case carries the hallmark of a serial murderer...
