The Crucifix Killer
The Crucifix Killer | Chris Carter
The first Robert Hunter thriller, from the Sunday Times bestselling author of One by One and An Evil Mind When the body of a young woman is discovered in a derelict cottage in the middle of Los Angeles National Forest, Homicide Detective Robert Hunter finds himself entering a horrific and recurring nightmare. Naked, strung from two wooden posts, the victim was sadistically tortured before meeting an excruciatingly painful death. All the skin has been ripped from her face - while she was still alive. On the nape of her neck has been carved a strange double-cross: the signature of a psychopath known as the Crucifix Killer. But that's impossible. Because two years ago, the Crucifix Killer was caught and executed. Could this therefore be a copycat killer? Or could the unthinkable be true? Is the real killer still out there, ready to embark once again on a vicious and violent killing spree, selecting his victims seemingly at random, taunting Robert Hunter with his inability to catch him? Hunter and his rookie partner are about to enter a nightmare beyond imagining. 'A gripping debut ... Not for the squeamish' Heat 'A page turner' Express Can't get enough of Robert Hunter? Chris Carter's explosive new thriller, I AM DEATH, is available in eBook and hardback on 30th July 2015. And this time, 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.

I love horror books, but this book is gruesome too. This is not for the faint of heart. It keeps you guessing all the way to the end.

5⭐️ LOVED this book!! I can‘t wait to read more in this series. After my self imposed book buying ban that is 😭🤯. I need to focus on the 688+ physical (& 1800+ digital Kobo) books I already own. It‘s sad that I need to go on a buying ban, but mentally, financially & square footage space wise it‘s well overdue. I believe that it‘s become a serious problem & I need to responsibly deal with it. 📚💖

CoverToCoverGirl Happy reading.. that‘s quite the TBR pile! 😎 6mo
SquidgetsRoom Thanks! 😉It also means I should be bringing u books regularly too! 📚💖 6mo

Mehso-so

Rather cheesy and cliched at times, but as the first book in the series, it is understandable. Indications are later books are much better.

Hunter is a typical male fantasy figure: supremely intelligent, good in a fight, attractive to everyone everywhere, etc. I‘ll see if the next one improves. Rating: 3 ⭐️

This book was such a letdown. It had so much potential but Carters writing was lecture-like and far from poetic. A lot of the time I felt he talked down to his readers; over explaining things. The dialogue, particularly between Hunter and Garcia was very contrived and awkward at times. Nothing flowed or seemed realistic or natural. It was clear that this was a debut novel.#whodunnituk

I am loving your notes @Libby1 I got to chapter 41 last night and had to make a prediction so that I could read yours!

Libby1 Brilliant, @jhod! I'm so glad you're enjoying it. I posted The Dry on Monday so you should be receiving it soon. 2y

Libby1 Eek, @jhod ! I sent that over a week ago. I sent 2 other parcels at the same time and they've both been received. I hope it arrives soon. 2y
Libby1 @jhod - has The Dry arrived yet? I posted it 2 weeks ago! 2y
jhod @Libby1 no, but I had a card from royal mail to pay some more postage on something so maybe that's it?! I'm in no hurry this month and am very excited about reading it so should be all good :-) 2y
Libby1 Oh no!!! Please do let me know if that‘s it and I‘ll sort it out somehow. 2y
jhod @libby1 it may well not be and don't worry if it is - tea and socks and chocolate and badges and bookmarks etc more than make up for a bit of postage :-) 2y
jhod @Libby1 it wasn't so it looks like we really do have a lost parcel eeek! 2y
Libby1 Oh NO! I‘ve never had that happen to me before. I sent 4 parcels that day at the same time and the other 3 arrived. @ScorpioBookDreams - it looks like we have a lost parcel! 2y
ScorpioBookDreams @Libby1 uh oh! Have you tried asking at your local sorting office in case they‘ve kept it back for some strange reason @jhod ? 2y
jhod No, I'll do that. Don't suppose you've got a reference number or anything @Libby1 ? Not to worry if you don't, will give it a try :-) fingers crossed as I really want to read 2y
Libby1 I don‘t think I do. I‘ve never had a lost passage before. I‘ll know now to keep the receipt. 😱 2y
Libby1 I even checked through my house and car just in case it wasn‘t sent, @ScorpioBookDreams and @jhod . It was DEFINITELY sent. 2y
jhod @libby1 of course, don't doubt you did at all! Don't worry, will see if the sorting office are hiding it somewhere! 2y
Libby1 @jhod - I wanted to check in case I‘d been multitasking poorly! 2y
jhod @Libby1 😄 2y

The LA setting, the genius protagonist, the trusty rookie, the grotesque murders, and the pacy plot made this an enjoyable read.

Thanks, @ScorpioBookDreams and #whodunituk!

Libby1 I'll be forwarding this on to you ASAP, @jhod . 😃 Do you drink tea? 2y
jhod @Libby1 Great! I've been thinking I've got loads of time so have been relaxing with mine, will get on it! Definitely like tea :-) 2y

Time to meet Robert Hunter.

I always remove the dust jackets when I'm reading a book so as not to damage them.

Who else does this?

@ScorpioBookDreams
#whodunituk

Aims42 I always do too 🙋🏼 2y
Smrloomis I do if it's not a library book. 2y
Librariana I'm a former library technician and I acquired the habit of purchasing the clear plastic protectors to wrap my dust jackets, especially with hardcovers I plan to keep. I get a nerdy satisfaction out of prepping them 😄 2y

Libby1 @jhod - is that notebook I sent working out ok? I was thinking of sending another one with lines and no background photo. Then anything that has already been written can be taken out and taped into the new notebook. 2y
BarbaraBB I do that but I do think it's a pity because they are so much nicer with their jackets on 😉! Fortunately, I mostly buy paperbacks! 2y
jhod @Libby1 i haven't started yet! Am sure it will be fine :-) 2y
Zelma I do. 👋 Not only does it protect the jacket but keeps the books from sliding around in my hand when reading. I used to throw jackets away 😳 but am a bit more civilized now. 😝 2y
Libby1 Same here, @Smrloomis , though Library books usually have a good protective cover so I feel safer. 2y
Libby1 @Aims42 - what a sensible person you are. 😊 2y
Libby1 That is truly wonderful, @Librariana . That would give me so much joy! 2y
Libby1 They ARE nicer with the jackets on, @BarbaraBB . I definitely have to keep the cover of this book off to keep the subject matter from the curious, prying eyes of my 7 year-old! 😳 2y
Libby1 @jhod - ok! 😃 2y
Libby1 @Zelma- what kind of barbarian were you?!? 🤣 2y
Zelma @Libby1 😂😂 I know. I am so weird about books. I dislike ripped, beat-up jackets more than missing ones. 2y

Nach "Das Paket" von Sebastian Fitzek (welches mir richtig gut gefallen hat!), bin ich noch nicht fertig mit den Thrillern, mir ist auf jeden Fall nach noch einem, also habe ich mir überlegt, das Chris Carter wohl ein guter Partner dabei sein könnte ?

5 stars??? I need more than 5 stars for this book. This book which is the first in the Robert Hunter series by Chris Carter is a phenomenal, edge of your seat, nail biting joyride of pure evil and is what a crime story is supposed to be all about. Here's to reading the others in the series!
