A pulse-pounding serial killer thriller ... The city of Christchurch becomes a modern equivalent of James Ellroy's Los Angeles of the 1950s, a discordant symphony of violence and human weakness
Paul Cleave writes the kind of dark, intense thrillers that I never want to end. Do yourself a favour and check him out
Horrormeister Cleave ... will scare you to death, or at least to the point of keeping a night light on
Collecting Cooper roars on at breakneck speed, pitting not two but three deadly adversaries against an inexorably ticking clock
The cynical, ambiguous conclusion to this wild, violent romp really makes you wonder about Cleave. And his fans ... and me. I couldn't put it down
Cleave leads us on a tantalizing, mouth-watering spectre of horror, never knowing what will be revealed around the next corner, or turning of a page. This is one in a series of novels centered on Detective Tate and he withholds just enough to make you want to get that next book now!
