Lucas is coasting to retirement in a mundane Florida police precinct when a brutal serial killer, codenamed Mechanic, lands on his patch.
Three years ago they thought Mechanic was dead. But Mechanic is very much alive and no family is safe from the savage, ritualistic murders that this sadistic killer is compelled to commit.
Mechanic is always one step ahead and Lucas is forced to operate outside the law.
But who can he trust and who is Mechanic?
Soon Lucas will learn that truth is more terrifying than he could ever imagine and in order to find the answers he needs, he might just have to put his life on the line…
Those That Remain is the first book in a trilogy featuring a serial killer known as Mechanic.
The story flicks between Mechanic and Lucas who is on the case to catch the killer. It was actually quite scary reading the parts to do with Mechanic. They obviously have some serious issues. It’s obvious that these issues are to do with events from their past to do with their dad. Obviously no matter what someone goes through it doesn’t make it right to take someones else’s life.
The deaths of the victims are pretty brutal ones to say the least and certainly don’t make for pleasant reading but, if you are a die hard crime fan, it will certainly have you hooked!
Lucas is a really likeable guy. I felt quite sorry for him as he is getting to a time in his life where he should be taking things a bit easier but thanks to Mechanic he is having to work harder than ever.
Those That Remain is the perfect read for fans of truly twisted serial killers. There is plenty within the pages to grip and thrill the reader. Maybe even some surprises, but then you will need to read it for yourself to find out. Great start and can’t wait to see what happens in the next instalment.
