This was my first visit reading a thriller and what an amazing thriller this was and so surprising for me was that I enjoyed every page of it. Alex is certainly a brilliant author as this had so much gruesome detail you could actually picture it and even imagine the smells as it was so graphic. Not very good if you have a sensitive tummy but excellent if you like this type of book. I will be looking out for the next Alex Marwood book, hoping it is as good as this one. I particularly like the way all the loose ends were tied up with brilliant endings. No wonder this book has so many reviews and congratulations as it is up there in my top ten books.
