When bizarre and cryptic messages are found on a pair of corpses in Mobile, Alabama, junior police detective Carson Ryder and veteran cop Harry Nautilus find themselves in a mysterious public-relations quagmire pitting public safety against office politics. With the body count growing, Ryder must confront his family’s terrifying past by seeking advice from his brother, a violent psychopath convicted of similarly heinous crimes. Ryder finds himself falling for Ava, the striking pathologist processing the gruesome corpses. But Ava’s past holds its own nightmarish secrets.

    " I'll definitely read more about Carson, Harry and Ava. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tim | 2/17/2014

    " I am reading it, and so far it is interesting, though sometimes a bit out there. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brooke | 2/7/2014

    " I wanted to like this series. This is the first book and was too slow for too much of it then there were parts I didn't like. Haven't decided if I'll try the next yet. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kyle Bain | 2/6/2014

    " Good character development surrounding an excellent storyline. Definately worth a read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth Moffat | 1/24/2014

    " This is the first book in the carson ryder series and I found it a good start. Quick and easy to read with just the right amount of action and intrigue. Unfortunately, the killer did not come as a surprise to me which was a shame! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Damian | 1/23/2014

    " Could have been great but the author seemed preoccupied with making readers laugh at the dialogue between the two detectives and this resulted in a hard to follow narrative and a plot that didn't quite work "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gail | 1/22/2014

    " This is going to be a hard review to write, I'm afraid. I disliked the book and liked it in equal turns. The dialogue is very hard to follow, even for a die hard thriller fan like me, and at times I found I had to go back and re-read numerous paragraphs/sentences to understand what was going on; sometimes I still didn't! It's extremely disjointed for the most part and I never really understood why Captain Squill was trying to scupper the investigation: strange as Carson was hot on the trail of the killer. If every murder investigation was treated like this by the hierarchy, it would take an age to solve. I really don't know whether I'll read the next in the series, albeit I bought it as the reviews said to stick with the series as it does get better: not sure at the moment though. On the plus side, I didn't figure out who the killer was until just before Carson did, and there are a couple of red herrings thrown in for good measure. It was enough to hold my concentration for a couple of days so I'll rate it 3.5 stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Helen | 1/22/2014

    " I am so enjoying the Carson Ryder series, Kerley's writing style is so fluid and easy to read, the pages just zip by. This series has just the right mix of mystery, suspense and gore, and Ryder and his partner Nautilus are a great cop duo. Will be seeking out the next in the series shortly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lee | 1/17/2014

    " The first in a wonderfully written series. Great southern atmosphere & suspense. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary G. | 1/9/2014

    " Wow. Excellent. This book introduced readers to two of the most interesting character in the mystery genre. Carson Ryder and his series killer brother Jeremy are a duo worth reading about. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maria | 1/4/2014

    " Thanks, Brandy, for the recommendation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brandy | 9/11/2013

    " No ordinary serial killer novel; on top of being suspenseful, this one is well written. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carlanda | 9/6/2013

    " Fast paced thriller with lots of characters. The story is set in Mobile and follows Detectives Ryder and Nautilus as they try to catch a serial killer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathryn | 7/20/2013

    " I like the characters, and would like to find more from this author. I find it odd that his books are not published in the US and may be difficult to come by. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kerwin Jn | 1/21/2012

    " a well written novel "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Terry Parker | 10/1/2011

    " Pretty good buddy book complete with the skeleton in the closet. but really contrived plot devices... not bad, but there are some better books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer Patrick | 9/21/2011

    " It is one of those though that I remember I liked it but now nearly a year later I couldn't tell you anything about the plot. A killer, an investigation but nothing about it stuck with me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jim | 7/14/2011

    " lively and interesting "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna | 3/27/2011

    " Author has a clear, authentic voice and great grasp of the Mobile AL culture within which all of his characters move smoothly and believably. Most are charming/funny and engaging. The plot caught me up right away. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ivana | 1/8/2011

    " If I may freely express my feelings while reading this book, it would be ''O, shit.... That just didn't happened, did it?''

    It's unbelievably tense, it just pulls you into the story and doesn't let you out until the last letter. "

    " Wow. Excellent. This book introduced readers to two of the most interesting character in the mystery genre. Carson Ryder and his series killer brother Jeremy are a duo worth reading about. "

    " WARNING: This book is not for the squeamish. It contains child abuse, psychotic and perverted acts, multiple murders, detailed descriptions of autopsies, sexual references and crude and offensive language.
    But a great psychological thriller "

    " bizarre serial killer. Detective meets cold morgue lady. People as weird as the serial killer are working against the clock to find serial killer. A number of deada end trips before they nail him. Good but not oustanding...Fast read. "

    " I really liked this book, it had a sense of humour, Carson is a really good character - someone who's just trying to make his way through life - doing his job the best he can - taking help from anywhere he can get it. "
