Seemingly unrelated murders have been taking place across the city but Detective Joe Lucchesi spots a link which switches the investigation to a hunt for a serial killer. This is packed with characters nursing physical and psychological scars, each carrying around guilty secrets, but who is guilty of what? Barclay keeps you guessing until the final pages. Gruesome, gripping and fast paced. A great thriller writer to keep an eye on.

If you like Alex Barclay you might also like to read books by Karen Rose, Alex Kava and Mo Hayder.

Synopsis

The Caller by Alex Barclay

NYPD Detective Joe Lucchesi is on the trail of a killer locked into a dark fantasy world that has come crashing into reality with devastating result …and a rising body count. People are being murdered in their own apartments, their faces savagely beaten, their bodies discarded in their hallway for a loved one to find.

Back on the job after a year out and a terrifying ordeal at the hands of a psychopath, Joe finds himself the reluctant lead in another high-profile investigation. And his problems don't end there, battling with physical pain and overwhelmed by friction in the task force and at home, Joe throws himself into his work. But just when he feels close to making a breakthrough, the investigation is rocked by tragedy and another victim's life is hanging in the balance.
