I Am Death
I Am Death | Chris Carter
AN EVIL MIND was Chris Carters's most acclaimed novel to date, described by the Daily mail as: 'A chilling, compulsive portrait of a psychopath, and proves that Carter is now in the Jeffrey Deaver class.' It spent three weeks in the Sunday Timestop ten and received brillant reviews and sales. Seven days after being abducted, the body of a twenty-year-old woman is found on a green patch of grass by the Los Angeles International Airport. She has been left with her limbs stretched out and spread apart, placing her in a five-point human star. The autopsy reveals that she had been tortured and murdered in a most bizarre way. But the surprises don't end there. This killer likes to play, and he left a note lodged inside his victim's throat. Detective Robert Hunter, who leads LAPD's Special Section, Ultra Violent Unit, is assigned the case. But almost immediately a second body turns up. Hunter knows he has to be quick. Surrounded by new challenges as every day passes, Detective Hunter finds himself chasing a monster. A predator whose past hides a terrible secret, whose desire to hurt people and thirst for murder can never be quenched - for he is DEATH. This terrifying new standalone thriller reunites Hunter and Garcia in their most explosive case to date.

Feel like I need all the caffeine today. I'm not a good sleeper at the best of times, but lately it's been even worse. Guess I'll just keep reading and working on orders and try and figure out how to inject caffeine right into my veins 😴 💤💤

Great start to my morning. This series just gets better and better with each book. I start one as soon as I finish the last because I love them but will be so disappointed there isn't more when I get to the last one

wtimblin I keep hearing about this author but haven't picked up anything yet. Any recommendations to dip my toe into their extensive back catalogue? 5mo
BooksAndYarn @wtimblin My brain was all "read the series in order!" just like every other series I try. Each book in the series so far really is better than the last in my opinion, both in storyline & in the authors writing. I'm all about how he doesn't shy away from grit & gore. An Evil Mind (#6) was my favorite so far, though honestly I'd say grab a good drink, get at it with book 1 & just keep going. 5mo
wtimblin @BooksAndYarn sound advice. Will give it a go, many thanks 5mo

I‘ve just finished reading I am Death by Chris Carter. What a deliciously dark tale. But not for the faint-hearted.

Mehso-so

Carter‘s books are gritty but this one was over the top. Sanding a victim‘s face was too gruesome for me. Child abuse is hard to take too. I enjoy reading but just can‘t get enjoyment out of this treatment. Sad to say, his books come from his memory of crimes he worked. Read his books if you have a strong stomach but be forewarned that they are gritty. Love the short chapters as the pages do fly. He doesn‘t waste words which is good too!

suzie.reads I can't read his books he is too gruesome it makes me worry about him really. I read The Caller and that just put me off! 7mo

So hard to review! The writing is excellent as always, great characterisation and interaction between them, great plotting and the suspense is excellent. However would most probably have to put it between so so and pick because of the too gritty aspect and the themes involved. I struggle with books that depict child abuse, find it so difficult to read (this includes 1 Karin Slaughter book), also sanded off a face of 1 victim. Love the series but👇

Andrew65 This one not so much as I feel he crossed the line. Please Chris tone it back a touch as you are a great writer and do not need it to be so sensational! 7mo
EadieB @Andrew65 That was a difficult book! 7mo
Andrew65 @EadieB Totally agree, and such a shame as the writing was as good as usual but it was the theme of the abuse and killing that just went too far in my humble opinion. 7mo

EadieB @Andrew65 way too far! I was sick over the face sanding! The child abuse was awful too! 7mo
Andrew65 @EadieB That face sanding doesn‘t even bear thinking about! 🤢🤢🤢🤢🤢🤢🤢🤮🤮🤮 7mo
EadieB @Andrew65 Carter has a very sick mind! 7mo
Andrew65 @EadieB As has been said, he is one sick puppy. Even worse that these are written based on his experiences. The world is one sick place. 7mo
EadieB @Andrew65 that‘s a frightful thought! 7mo
Andrew65 @EadieB Very! 7mo
kspenmoll No way could I stomach this book from your descriptions! @EadieB 7mo
EadieB @kspenmoll definitely disgusting narrative that almost made me faint! 7mo
Andrew65 @kspenmoll Definitely sections you had to take your brain out! Possibly only continued as I was leading the Group Read 😂 7mo
kspenmoll @Andrew65 @EadieB You both are dedicated! I definitely would have had to bail!!😱 7mo
EadieB @kspenmoll We were doing a group read with about 4 others so it‘s hard to bail with others involved too. 7mo
Andrew65 @EadieB @kspenmoll You just close your eyes! And think nice things. 😂 7mo

This is the schedule for the Group Read of I Am Death by Chris Carter which starts tomorrow on Librarything, this is Book 7 in the excellent Robert Hunter Series. Just started the book in preparation and already totally hooked.
If you like serial killer books with tension, chase, challenge and a great lead detective I totally recommend this series, one of my favourites, just be aware it is a gritty series.

TrishB Another series where I‘ve read number one! 8mo
Andrew65 @TrishB I love this series, and a great lead character. 8mo
EadieB @Andrew65 Thanks! By the way, it‘s the 7th book. 8mo

maich @bobregina I haven't read anything by her. Can I read it standalone? 2y
bobregina @maich I read them in a row, but that's kind of an obsession of mine 🙈 there will be some mentions of her previous books, but you can totally read them standalone! (edited) 2y
