Book Description
When the body of a young woman is discovered in a derelict cottage in the middle of Los Angeles National Forest, Homicide Detective Robert Hunter finds himself entering a horrific and recurring nightmare. Naked, strung from two wooden posts, the victim was sadistically tortured before meeting an excruciatingly painful death. All the skin has been ripped from her face - while she was still alive. On the nape of her neck has been carved a strange double-cross: the signature of a psychopath known as the Crucifix Killer. But that's impossible. Because two years ago, the Crucifix Killer was caught and executed. Could this therefore be a copycat killer? Or could the unthinkable be true? Is the real killer still out there, ready to embark once again on a vicious and violent killing spree, selecting his victims seemingly at random, taunting Robert Hunter with his inability to catch him? Hunter and his rookie partner are about to enter a nightmare beyond imagining.

My Review
If you like gritty thrillers, then you will like The Crucifix Killer. This series is not for the weak of heart, but if you can get through grit and not let it bother you, you will find that this is an excellent read. Garcia is a rookie but Hunter takes him under his wing and their relationship ends up pretty solid. The story was so interesting that the pages kept turning and twists and turns never stopped. The ending had a few surprises which I didn't see coming and I now look forward to reading book 2 very soon. I would highly recommend this series to those who like Karin Slaughter type mystery thrillers.

Very well written by an author that 'knows' the business of serial killers.

Never a dull moment, story flows throughout the book without a dull draggy spot anywhere.

This is truly a thriller and will have you on the edge of your seat!
