Críticas:

The opening scene of this piece is enough to get you hooked until the end: a man with a knife in each hand standing over the moonlit naked body of a female, both drenched by a heavy rainfall. Although the scene looks self-explanatory, the killer appears to have no identity and neither is there any evidence to convict him of the crime. Cue the clich d lonesome investigator, Alex Rourke, who is called back to his hometown in order to help solve the case. However, as the murder mystery gradually unravels, Rourke finds himself increasingly the pawn rather than the player of a sinister game. Can our hero outwit the killer? Rickards' use of the pathetic fallacy and descriptive dark settings provide a brilliant staging to this dramatic debut novel.
