The Two

1 Mins read

Detective January David is struggling to move on from the events of Girl 4, Carver‘s last book. Separated from his wife, he is drinking copiously and immersing himself in his mother’s journals, trying to find more clues about his sister’s disappearance. When bodies start turning up, killed in a similar ritualistic manner and months apart, January sets out to stop the murderer. In doing so he must battle his demons with his detective work suffers from his lack of focus, and this has an important impact on the story. But maybe the apparitions of children who visit him hold the answer to the series of murders. Who is the serial killer? Are there two of them? This isn’t your standard story about a mysterious serial killer terrorising the streets of London. Carver delivers a great twist within the genre by introducing a supernatural element through January’s visions. Full of twists and turns, and one of the best reveals of a serial killer we’ve read in a long time, The Two is a must-read for any crime fiction fan looking for something a little different.
