The Fourth Monkey
 

The Fourth Monkey

For over five years, the Four Monkey Killer has terrorized the residents of Chicago. When his body is found, the police quickly realize he was on his way to deliver one final message, one which proves he has taken another victim who may still be alive.

As the lead investigator on the 4MK task force, Detective Sam Porter knows even in death, the killer is far from finished. When he discovers a personal diary in the jacket pocket of the body, Porter finds himself caught up in the mind of a psychopath, unraveling a twisted history in hopes of finding one last girl, all while struggling with personal demons of his own.

With only a handful of clues, the elusive killer’s identity remains a mystery. Time is running out and the Four Monkey Killer taunts from beyond the grave in this masterfully written fast-paced thriller.

My thoughts:
Omg what a read! I enjoyed this book. Hard to review without spoilers.
The FMK is apparently killed when run over by a bus, when on his way to post one of his trademark parcels; which contains a body part of his latest victim. Whom he tortures before killing.
All he leaves behind is this parcel, his body and a hand written diary, of presumably his younger days with his family.
This sends the police off on a race against time, to find the latest victim before hunger and exposure claims her.
A fast paced thriller; told in short chapters with the police, the victim and the killers diary alternating, has the reader turning the pages furiously.
Well rounded characters, top quality writing and superb story make this a well deserved four stars from me. I urge you to read this book.
