Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Author of Thornbirds with something completely different, a murder mystery, fast-paced with a great setting and a twist on the very last page, all highly satisfying. A lot of the action takes place in a research centre for neuroscience. In a large refrigerator used for storing bodies and parts of bodies of animals used for experimentation, a monkey ‘comes to life’ and in a panic rips open the bags awaiting incineration. Two of them contain human body parts. Naturally suspicion falls on the staff of the centre ….. truly unputdownable.

Similar this month: None but try Sara Paretsky.
Comparison: Tess Gerritsen, Karin Slaughter, Mo Hayder.

If you like Colleen Mccullough you might also like to read books by David Wishart, Jane Yardley and P.D. James.

Synopsis

On, Off by Colleen Mccullough

Innocence is no protection…

In Holloman, Connecticut, someone is preying on the innocent. At a prestigious research centre fondly known by its staff as the 'Hug', parts of a mutilated body are found. Lieutenant Carmine Delmonico of the Holloman Police learns that a string of horrifying murders – each with the same modus operandi as the one at the Hug – have been commited throughout the state. When another body is found, the medical staff become prime suspects.

With the powers that be in turmoil and every member of staff hiding something, Delmonico must delve into the lives of each and every Hug employee. This is the case of his career and he is determined to solve it. But how, when he is hunting a monster who leaves no clues and is always two steps ahead?
