Believe the hype. Sold in over 32 countries and counting, RAGDOLL is the standout thriller of the year.
A body is discovered with the dismembered parts of six victims stitched together like a puppet, nicknamed by the press as the ‘ragdoll’.
Assigned to the shocking case are Detective William ‘Wolf’ Fawkes, recently reinstated to the London Met, and his former partner Detective Emily Baxter.
The ‘Ragdoll Killer’ taunts the police by releasing a list of names to the media, and the dates on which he intends to murder them.
With six people to save, can Fawkes and Baxter catch a killer when the world is watching their every move?
Ragdoll is quite unlike any other crime thriller novel I have ever read.
There are quite a few cracking one liners in here that actually made me chuckle, but everything else in the story is far from a laughing matter.
Wolf is as complicated as they come. He has one hell of a past which doesn’t do him any favours and to be honest he is like a ticking time bomb waiting to self destruct. You can’t help but love his character though. He totally fascinated me and I was drawn to him through out the story.
With other strong character roles like Baxter and Edmunds, Ragdoll had me totally engaged with them throughout and I loved how each one stood out from each other and they all brought a little something extra to the novel.
The whole story line in itself is quite explosive. It is fast paced and at times I struggled to keep up. In parts I ended up having to go back a page or two as there are so many twists and turns it left me feeling dizzy. For readers that love their thrillers to be packed full of action and murder and mayhem you will devour this novel in no time.
Ragdoll really is an explosive debut novel from an author that is no doubt one to watch out for. He has created a novel with the ideal combination of everything that a true crime junkie expects from a story and more. A story that will have you holding your breath throughout and leave you gasping for air by the end.
My thanks to Sam at Orion for an early copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Goodreads rating 5/5 stars.
