Publisher's Summary

People are disappearing in Christchurch. Cooper Riley, a psychology professor, doesn't make it to work one day. Emma Green, one of his students, doesn't make it home. When ex-cop Theodore Tate is released from a four-month prison stint, he's asked by Green's father to help find Emma. After all, Tate was in jail for nearly killing her in a DUI accident the year before, so he owes him. Big time. What neither of them knows is that a former mental patient is holding people prisoner as part of his growing collection of serial-killer souvenirs.

Quirky & enjoyable book

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

No, not that kind of thriller. This book was written more as a psychological character study of the leading protagonists. The plot itself was very different and well executed as it jumped from character to character. There was also a lot of irony and subtle humour so that the horror of the deeds undertaken were somewhat diminished but not absolved.

Which character – as performed by Paul Ansdell – was your favorite?

For me it was the mentally deficient, but cunning, Adrian, so well portrayed by the narrator.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me laugh on quite a few occasions, and sad on a few too, but mainly it kept my interest.

Any additional comments?

I'm looking forward to reading this book again. It's my first Paul Cleave, but certainly won't be my last. A thoroughly enjoyable book, I recommend it to those who enjoy an intelligently written psychological thriller.
