LoveReading View on The Anniversary Man

This man is incapable of writing a mediocre book.  All are, without doubt, first class.  Here a serial killer in New York is copy-catting past killings.  One man, a crime researcher for a newspaper, knows an awful lot about the crimes and the police enlist his help.  This is one of Ellory’s fastest reads, a real page-turner, gruesome, at times chilling, building to an edge-of-the-seat climax.  Awesome.

The Anniversary Man Synopsis

Twenty years ago John Costello's life, as he knew it, ended. He and his beautiful girlfriend, Nadia, were victims of the deranged 'Hammer of God' killer who terrorised New Jersey City throughout the summer of 1984. Nadia was killed instantly. John survived, but withdrew from society, emerging only to work as a crime researcher for a major newspaper. Damaged he may be, but no one in New Jersey knows more about serial killers than John Costello. Then a new spate of murders starts - all seemingly random and unrelated - until John discovers a complex pattern that links them. But could this dark knowledge be about to threaten his life?
