Can you guys believe it’s going to be April at the end of this week?! Gosh! How quickly is this year going?!
I shall be continuing my mass reviews up through the next month so keep your eyes peeled for NetGalley reviews going up in the next few weeks.
Today I’m reviewing Rattle.
A psychopath more frightening than Hannibal Lecter.
He has planned well. He leads two lives. In one he’s just like anyone else. But in the other he is the caretaker of his family’s macabre museum.
Now the time has come to add to his collection. He is ready to feed his obsession, and he is on the hunt.
Jakey Frith and Clara Foyle have something in common. They have what he needs.
What begins is a terrifying cat-and-mouse game between the sinister collector, Jakey’s father and Etta Fitzroy, a troubled detective investigating a spate of abductions.
Set in London’s Blackheath, Rattle by Fiona Cummins explores the seam of darkness that runs through us all; the struggle between light and shadow, redemption and revenge.
It is a glimpse into the mind of a sinister psychopath. And it’s also a story about not giving up hope when it seems that all hope is already lost.
This book was hard to put down, I wanted to find out what happened and what was going to happen. The ending was awful, as in, it wasn’t really a happy ending for all and it left it on a bit of a cliff-hanger. Which sucks! I hope they write another one soon.
It’s spooky and a bit creepy to be honest and the book made my hairs stand up on end. But it was so well written and a story you can get lost in, sometimes literally.
It’s the kind of story that’ll pull on your heart strings and have you routing for the good guys and hoping the bad guys don’t get away with it!
The book is kinda spooky and the main character (or bad guy) is also kinda creepy. But this theme hits home, people snatching. Obviously this guy focuses on bones, but it just goes to show that no-one is really safe. Sorry.
Recommend this books to lovers of crime and mystery and the whole ‘cat and mouse’ style book. As always, let me know in the comments below if you’ve read this book and what you thought of it, if not, take a look!
