Mercer for providing me with a copy of this publication, which allows me to provide you with an unbiased review.Hooked by the dust jacket blurb, I eagerly read this novel by Thomas Holgate, which mixes a sadistic serial killer with a cop whose process is a tad unorthodox While Paul Czarcik was once a proud member of the Chicago PD, his time there came to an end prematurely However, he accepted a role in the Illinois Bureau of Judicial Enforcement, an experimental group of detectives whose skills are a little too unique for the CPD When a couple is found brutally tortured and murdered, Czarcik takes the case He cannot understand the brutality he sees before him, but there is somethingWhen he is able to see a link between this killing and the brutal murder of a judge in Texas, Czarcik thinks that he may be on the path of a serial killer Meanwhile, the killer, one Daniel Langdon, is plotting his next murder He has the files and knows his victims, but must plan things effectively When not gathering the needed information for his next kill, Langdon is dealing with crippling headaches, all a part of the tumour that is growing inside his head When Langdon sees Czarcik is on the case, he decides to pay the detective a visit Letting Czarcik in on his plan, Langdon all but baits the detective to follow and catch him After Czarcik is contacted by Langdon s wife, who fills in many of the gaps, they work together to find and save the victims before their heinous acts receive the vengeance that Daniel Langdon feels is his to offer It will be a race across America to catch a killer, but Czarcik has nothing to lose A twisted story that pulls the reader in on many levels, as Holgate entertains throughout Recommended to those who love a police procedural that follows none of the rules, as well as the reader who enjoys something a littlegruesome than the usual crime thriller.I always love reading a new author and discovering that their work is right up my alley I find that Thomas Holgate writes in such a way that I cannot help but wantin short order The detailed writing is not only helpful in building up the crimes, but creates a series of wonderful characters the reader will enjoy throughout the novel Paul Czarcik seems quite the odd character as the novel begins, with his penchant for cocaine and his predilection for escorts, whom he pays to have deep conversations However, the detective has deep rooted connections to his work and seems always to find the unique approaches to solving crimes As the novel progresses, the reader sees much growth in Czarcik, both in the current day narrative and the flashback case from his time as a CPD officer One can hope Holgate will be able to create a series from this and that reader can seeCzarcik growth Other characters prove as enticing and curious as the protagonist, all of whom help the story develop and the narrative move at a quick pace The story has some typical police procedural aspects, as well as great uniqueness, which sets Holgate apart The reader can bask in both worlds and determine what they think of the overall presentation With a mix of mid to full length chapters, the story progresses slowly, but never lacks the momentum to fully enthral in a mystery where both good and evil are known throughout, playing a game of cat and mouse that will leave only one winner, or perhaps two strong losers Thomas Holgate is an author to watch and I have added him to my literary radar.Kudos, Mr Holgate, for this fabulous debut I will ensure the world knows all about your work and

this cat and mouse game as you have to decide whether they deserve what is happening to them I found this book to be very interesting and well written, and was surprised to find out that this was a debut novel Some of the violence in this book was a bit hard to read as it was fairly graphic, but I think it fit with the story There was also an element of romance in this story that I m still deciding if it was necessary believable, but it did help wrap up the story at the end In many ways, this book reminded me of film noir and I think it could make a very good movie, depending on how they handle thegraphic scenes Overall, I very much enjoyed this book, and couldn t wait to find out how it would end I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good thriller crime novel, doesn t mind a little bit of violence, and finds deeply flawed protagonists to be interesting Because despite his faults, I did like Detective Czarcik Thanks to NetGalley, ThomasHolgate, and ThomasMercer for

caught my attention for that very reason Who wouldn t want to gravitate toward big time crime, a wayward aging detective, a Dr Jekyll Mr Hyde serial killer, and some brutal goings on in the Windy City I would I did And now I m not so sure.Thomas Holgate lays out his main character of Detective Paul Czarcik like a beefy cut of Chicago s finest on a crusty roll He s Old School, on the other side of fifty, and still drives around in a Crown Victoria In his back pocket is a Blackberry relic and his coffee breaks consist of Cutty Sark and a line of cocaine now and then He works for the Illinois Bureau of Judicial Enforcement and his boss is trying to get him to retire.Czarcik is called up in the middle of the night to check out a double murder crime scene One of the victims has a dead chicken around her neck Not your usual murder attire Czarcik is assigned to the case and soon finds a thread that will connect these deaths to someone on a crime spree that will make your jaw drop But here s where Holgate loses me What starts out as a snarky detective story soon flips over to the burnt side of the road He wades too deeply into the shock and awe of a psychological thriller that gets lost in graphic descriptors rather than with a well honed storyline It s the gore that he s after and he s obsessed with his views on timely social topics I ve read enough thrillers and horror genres to fill a Chicago warehouse Nothing shocks me, but this will be a DNF to many, many readers when they arrive at this juncture in the story Oh, so not necessary Work on the potholes in this road, Holgate, and re think the future of the great possibility you have in the character of Paul Czarcik.I received a copy of this book through NetGalley for an honest review My thanks to Thomas Mercer and

could get me to come to terms with my past I don t have some psychosis that you can address with rational thought nor religious delusions to which you can appeal through the vagaries of faith No, unfortunately for you and him, and all of them I just have an insatiable urge to punish those who deserve it All of us are virtually powerless to change our natures We can pretend anything we want, but in the end, we are who we are Daniel motioned to the priest but continued talking to Czarcik Now what separates you and me from him, from that, is that our sense of right and wrong moral and immoral is stronger than our basest urges We may think but we don t act It s the difference between mad men and, well, men The thing that stands out in this book is that unlike other crime thrillers dealing with serial killers, the reader already knows who the killer is from the start So the plot is not so much about Paul Czarick, a detective working for the Illinois Bureau of Criminal Justice, trying to figure out who the killer is, but trying to stay one step ahead of the killer to prevent him from killing his next target Paul is both brilliant and a rogue He has a very unorthodox way of solving crimes and he requires his daily dosage of drink, drugs, cigarettes and conversations with prostitutes to get his detective juices flowing He is the only person to connect two seemingly separate gruesome murders together as the work of one person which leads the killer in question, Daniel Langdon, to pay him a visit Later, through his wife, Langdon basically hands over to Paul all the information about the murders he still has to commit and invites him to a game of Catch Me If You Can Daniel Langdon is a vigilante of sorts who has taken it upon himself to become judge, jury and executioner to those people who under the garb of being respectable citizens, have crossed all limits of being vile He is dying and feels that this is one way he can serve mankindby removing a few people who are an insult to mankind and humanity Although his idea of doling out justice is very bloody and gruesome, there is a perverse sense of satisfaction from reading about it because we know that those vile people deserve everything that Langdon puts them through Even Paul who is hell bent on stopping Langdon, at one point begrudgingly envies Langdon his freedom to mete out justice the way he does Even though both Paul and Langdon are at opposite ends of the justice line, we feel a sense of respect each have for the other in different circumstances, these two could have been great friends Fast paced and engrossing with well etched out characters, this is a brilliant debut by the author Thomas Holgate, who prior to this book has written for feature films and television shows This book reads like it could be made into a good thriller movie The only drawback for me was the ending because it felt very rushed and was anti climactic.My thanks to NetGalley, the publisher Thomas

Thomas Mercer for giving me an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review WOW I must say that I am thoroughly impressed, and a debut novel at that Thomas Holgate is really going to go places if he continues to write with such intensity What you should be asking yourself is, how much pain can I endure Meet Detective Paul Czarcik, a brash, outspoken member of the BJE Bureau of Judicial Enforcement an organization with a single obligation To get shit done Czarcik is far from innocent, even further from admirable and what some might call a crooked cop He likes his escorts, his cigars, his coke and rarely abides by the rules But, he goes above and beyond his call of duty and doesn t care what measures he has to go to in order to get the bad guy However, what if the killer isn t really the one who s TRULY to blame, what if these so called victims had it coming to them Dare I say that they deserved everything that happened to them If the murderer was taking out people that were the scum of the earth, men and women that just barely escaped jail sentences, or have shown no remorse for the gruesome acts that they ve committed how fast should you really chase him Doesn t a little part of you WANT him to keep killing Do you know what it s like to empathize with an estranged psychopath Headless bodies, death involving poultry, hacksaws, cigarette burns, insides on the outside, skinned alive you name it, you re in for it He didn t want him to die He wanted him to live To live and to suffer Paralyzed For the rest of his natural life Different parts of this book reminded me of a few different things that I have either watched or read in the past For instance The killer has a mindset similar to The Jigsaw Killer in the Saw movies as well as could be comparable to Dexter in the tv series, but the vibe of the story isgory and haunting like the movie Seven When it comes to writing style, I would compare it to Karin Slaughter or Jack Ketchum While these are some examples of my favorite narratives all rolled into one frightening book, I can assure you that it is not for the faint of heart The truth is, you just might not have the stomach for it You ve been warned It was easy to forget that the THING in the photograph had once been a living, breathing person Everything really ties together in the end and I actually had a smile on my face when I was done I hope that this becomes a series, it would be nice to gointo depth with the character Sal Cicci.5 stars
