Immediately after finished reading this book, I write a review. The book was so inclusive, it was hard to get away from reading. It is really interesting.
Chris Carter, an Italian-born writer who has studied psychology and crime, begins his debut novel, “Crucifix,” a series of books about Detective Robert Hunter. This first detective case goes even beyond imagination. Could it be that the wrong person was executed? How many casualties will it take before psychopath torturing girls will be finally caught?
I am sensitive to the various killing scenes and blood, so this book was really ugly in some places, as the victims are described, albeit briefly, without any beautifying, specifically and without wrapping up. For example, watching a movie where someone is hurting, killing others, I can’t watch it calmly. When reading this, my imagination probably worked very well.
“Crucifix” is a cruel book but something has really involved me. Realistically, from the second half of the book, I had a suspicion of who that criminal was. And I was counting on waiting to find out who he was or to confirm my guess. What I didn’t know is just why he is doing it and what links the criminal to the victims. What a goal he wants to achieve. But my guess came true.
I definitely recommend reading the book to fans of serial killer stories. For those who like sharp scenes. Really, I want to buy and read the second part – Execution.
