Maxim Jakubowski's view...

A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.

Serial killer tales come and go but this one proves starkly different: a Russian novel with layers upon layers of darkness set in a contemporary Moscow where women are being stalked and brutalised by a figure of fear and dread, and a young investigating female journalist is caught up in the bloody (and strongly explicit) spree. Complex, sinister, drawing uncomfortable psychological insights into some women's morbid fascination with the seduction of killers (a disturbing phenomenon I have witnessed at first hand in the true crime section of my erstwhile bookshop...), this is an inside report on the dark heart of Russia and the female psyche. Rewarding if rather chilling.

Synopsis

Butterfly Skin by Sergey Kuznetsov, Andrew Bromfield

Moscow is plagued with a series of gruesome murders. Xenia, an ambitious young editor in the news department of an online journal decides to track down the serial killer, devising an elaborate website to entrap him. She soon realises, however, that her obsession with the psychopath reflects something disturbing: her own unconscious fascination with the sexual savagery of the murders.
