LoveReading View on The Killer's Guide To Iceland

Don’t you just love the title?  And it’s so true, Zane manages to paint really vivid pictures of the Icelandic landscape – very dramatic.  It takes a while to get into the plot but then it builds to a good, exciting twist.  However, this is a literary thriller and, in between, the passages of love, loss and persistent light are beautifully told.

The Killer's Guide To Iceland Synopsis

Callum looked out over Reykjavík, its colourful dolls' houses snuggled together, their rooftops so sharp and precise against a blue-screen sky. He loved this daft capital, this gale-blown toy town with whalebones under its flagstones...

But Callum Pope cannot escape the horrors of his past.

He has fled his native Glasgow to make a fresh start in Iceland with Bírna Sveinsdóttir, the pretty glaciologist who is slowly thawing his heart.
 

He has moved in with Bírna, her indomitable mother (who happens to believe in fairies) and her eleven-year-old daughter – who refuses to believe in Callum. He tries hard to adjust to this new life among three generations of singular females, however, the dark secret Callum is hiding is about to raise its malign head, threatening not only to destroy his relationship but also the life of a young girl…
