About this deal

He always leaves part of a poem with the body and in a day or two after the murder, sends a video message to the victim's loved one. Mord für Mord steigert sich in meinen Augen die Kreativität der Tötungen und ich habe mich als Leserin oft gefragt „Wie kommt man nur auf so eine kranke Idee?

I found Genesis to be along similar lines to his other books but with a bit of a twist - or so I thought anyway . I can’t give too many details away as there were so many quotes and speeches throughout the book that spoke to me. He worked as a criminal psychologist for several years before moving to Los Angeles, where he swapped the suits and briefcases for ripped jeans, bandanas and an electric guitar. Detective Robert Hunter was seen some of the world’s worst sadist and psychotic killers in his time with the LAPD Ultra Violent Crime Division but in Genesis he is going to come up against a killer like no one before, a killer that is twisted and evil beyond imagination.I didn’t need to know the gory details of each crime scene, it was enough to tell me someone was tortured. Denn die Geschichte offenbart zum Ende doch auch eine ganz tragische Geschichte, mit deren Intensität ich so nicht gerechnet hätte. With no forensic evidence to go on, Robert Hunter must catch the most disciplined and systematic killer that he has ever encountered, someone who thrives on the victims’ fear, and to whom death is a lesson that needs to be taught. In früheren Teilen der Reihe ist mir manchmal aufgefallen, dass gewisse Grundinformationen zu Hunter mitunter ellenlang in jedem neuen Teil immer wieder neu durchgekaut wurden. Even serial killers would stop short at this level of depravity and torturous methods, even if it had some dark meaning.

If you have been affected or think you will be affected then there is information at the back of the book for further help. That being said, Genesis, the 12th book in the Robert Hunter series, was as deliciously good and chilling as its predecessors. Meine beiden Lieblingsermittler der Spezialeinheit für brutale Verbrechen (Ultra violent) des LAPD haben es in diesem Buch mit den wohl brutalsten Verbrechen der ganzen Reihe zu tun.But this discovery does more than just link the two killings – it suggests that this is the work of a serial murderer. A superb storyteller that keeps you hooked even though you don’t want to continue reading the story, because ‘you need to know what happens and why! As a member of the Michigan State District Attorney's Criminal Psychology team, he interviewed and studied many criminals, including serial and multiple homicide offenders with life imprisonment convictions. With a piece of poetry left at the scene, Hunter and others within the LAPD begin to ponder if this message has a deeper meaning. Dieses Mal mussten wir uns etwas länger gedulden, doch ich würde sagen, die Geduld hat sich eindeutig gelohnt.

If the violence had been toned down somewhat to match the original crime, then for the plot and storytelling, I would not have hesitated in giving this 5 stars.These books are extremely graphic and violent in their content and I actually think that Genesis is the most disturbing and violent of them all.

While this may be the case, he has always seen it eat away at his inner self, which leaves Hunter to wonder how much energy he has left.The dedication at the start is beautiful and made me cry even before I started to read it, The end of the book has details of helplines for those who are struggling. With no forensic evidence to go on, Robert Hunter must catch the most disciplined and systematic killer that he has ever encountered, someone who thrives on the victims' fear, and to whom death is a lesson that needs to be taught. Nors šis detektyvas yra matęs daug, tačiau su tokiu makabrišku nusikaltimu jam dar susidurti neteko. Cons - Suddenly Hunter getting dream and that connect with the next sequence, his close connection with Air marshal remembering at the time when it was required. A brilliant but flawed protagonist, amazing side characters, killers that feel real, situations that don't require one to suspend their disbelief and a very realistic description of how a murder investigation and a killer's mind work.
