Excellent plotting. It drives along at a great pace.
My vote is for "Two Little Dicky Birds" by Neal James, it;s brilliant!
Great read, couldn't put it down!
Excellent author. Would recommend everyone to his work.
A psychological thriller revolving around a UK serial killer and the efforts to catch him. The novel is well written and quick to read--I read it in three days--yet a very complex story none-the-less that jumps back and forth between two storylines: one in 2002, after police receive a letter from the serial killer who has stopped for a decade and is giving them four weeks to find him before he resumes; the other is back during the 15 year killing spree in the 70's. The author well handles the difficult task of multiple/intertwined plots in the book. The format of the novel worked well. Short chapters, each covering a single day, moving back and forth between the two timelines and at times, skipping as much as five years in the older one. This allowed for the story to remain well focused at all times on a primary overall plot and at no time does it veer away from the action. Also, it caused me to continually say "OK, one more chapter" and before I knew it, that would turn into reading a hundred pages. The story is richer and more complex than the run-of-the-mill mystery novel and was a quick, highly engaging read.

Gripping thriller. Neal at his best.
I found this book extremly hard to put down, and would suggest it to anybody even slightly into the genre.
This book embarks you in one of the most gripping and thrilling detective story ever written. His talent as a writer has to be recognized.
Great book. Great author. Couldn't put it down.
Fast pace thriller. Could not put this book down. Highly recommend.
This was fun to read. James writes at a very quick pace, and leaves you little time to breath before the next twist comes. It's that quickness, and twisting of the knife, that I really love about this book and the stuff James comes up with. I strongly recommend it for an easy-reading thrill ride. It certainly is hard to put down. And it gets my vote, for sure.
Wonderfully taut, tense thriller - couldn't put it down.
