Title: The Watcher

Author: Eli Carros

Genre: Crime Thriller

One man must stop a psychopath in his tracks…

Chief Inspector Jack Grayson is hunting a serial killer terrorizing London, a stalker who watches his prey carefully and displays the bodies of his young female victims brazenly. But Grayson has a problem – only one lead and scant evidence – and the body count is rising.

He discovers that an unsolved 18-year-old murder case bears all the hallmarks of the current killings, but he still can’t seem to find a single, obvious suspect, and he is so far unable to outthink a master predator.

Grayson must catch a hunter who knows how to outwit the police – a showman intent on completing his macabre collection. But he’s missing a vital clue, a critical piece of the puzzle.  When he finally discovers the killer’s identity, he’s completely unprepared for the fallout…

In The Watcher, Chief Inspector Jack Grayson is hunting down a serial killer who is terrorizing London, a killer with a penchant for putting his victim’s body on display. But the killer scarcely leaves any evidence, just a lot of bodies.

Jack manages to connect the murders with an unsolved 18-year-old murder case, but it still doesn’t bring him to a single suspect. He’s missing a vital clue, a critical piece of the puzzle, that might just change everything.

I don’t want to spoil the book, but it had quite a few surprises that I didn’t see coming. Jack is an intriguing Chief Inspector, hardened by his job and personal life, and willing to do whatever it takes to find this vicious murderer. The setting was described well, and the story was fast-paced and so suspenseful I had to stop myself from biting my nails.

Recommended to readers who enjoy crime novels / thrillers.
