Barry Forshaw on Steve Mosby...

Edgy Brit Steve Mosby (author of the splendid Dark Room) specialises in fiction that takes no prisoners, and is guaranteed to take readers into very dangerous territory – in which the protagonist’s ill-advised behaviour usually has violent results.

The Lovereading view...

The Dark Room ... it's the place where fear comes from.

DI Hicks must face not only a killer obsessed with randomness and chaos, but also the secret in his own past. If he is to stop the killings, he must confront the truth about himself and the fact that some murders begin in much darker places than he ever imagined.

If you like Steve Mosby you might also like to read books by Belinda Bauer, Karen Rose and P. J. Tracy.

Synopsis

Dark Room by Steve Mosby

For DI Andrew Hicks, solving a murder is logical: your first suspicions are usually right. So when the brutally beaten body of a young woman is found, his attention focuses closely on the ex-boyfriend. But then more bodies start appearing, all beaten beyond recognition, and there is no connection between any of the victims. Because this is a new type of killer, one who revels in chaos. To survive, Hicks must face not only a serial killer with no discernable motive, but the hidden darkness of his own past.

Reviews

This is one of the darkest, blood-chilling, British crime thrillers imaginable, well up there with Scandinavia's best... Mosby takes you with heart-in-mouth into some shadowy and terrible places with his flawed Detective Andrew Hicks... Scarily compulsive! 8/10 * THE LOCAL *
