The Memory Killer by J. A. Kerley
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

The next thriller starring maverick detective Carson Ryder who has a clever advantage up his sleeve. His brother is a psychopathic killer and helps Carson to work out many a case. This new adversary is a particularly sick individual who tortures young men for fun – of course – so Carson needs to know how his mind works … This is truly nasty stuff – not for the faint-hearted. It’s his eleventh thriller so lots to go back to and all are equally nasty! You’ll love them, so start with The Hundredth Man, his first.

If you like J. A. Kerley you might also like to read books by Karen Rose, Richard Montanari and Chelsea Cain.

Synopsis

The Memory Killer by J. A. Kerley

Detective Carson Ryder faces a cunning and inventive adversary in this terrifying thriller from the bestselling author of Her Last Scream. Young men in Miami are being abducted and tortured after their drinks are spiked with a cocktail of drugs that leaves them unable to recall their ordeal. Despite this, Detective Carson Ryder knows the predator's name, height, age, colouring ...everything. It's impossible for the perpetrator to avoid detection. Yet he does. When Carson seeks answers from his brother, a wanted criminal intimate with twisted minds, Jeremy's odd behaviour sparks even more questions. With each abduction, the violence becomes more horrific, and it's only a short time until torture turns to murder. But how do you catch an invisible man?
