    I've read both of his books which are shown on Amazon. This is the better of the two and it is the first in the series. It is a duo. One is Tom Harper, who is a NYPD detective with anger management problems. He is compelled to see NYPD psychologist Denise Levine. Tom and Denise soon realize they share the same passion towards hunting psychotic murderers. Their first case is a doozy with a killer who takes every twist and turn. I enjoyed it and kept at it until I'd finished. I read a lot of these kinds of books. There is nothing terribly new or different about this series but Stark does is well. I then read his next book, 88 Killer, which started out well enough but this time it was so easy to guess who the killer was that I was wondering what was wrong with Harper and Levene. I would probably try a third book of his.

    Oliver Stark...where have you been hiding? I am a typical Crime and Thriller fan and read through numerous books a month. Yep I have my favourites and the typical series of characters I typically return to such as Alex Cross and Roy Grace. Mr Stark has just upped the ante.When I got the book I realised that it was a pretty hefty read at 576 pages, but as usual, didn't allow that to put me off. I started the book and was instantly drawn into the sheer violence of the lunatic killer. Yes there are hundreds of crime writers who churn out books about serial killers but there was something different about this book.First off the characters were incredibly strong but not contrived. The lead character Tom Harper has a lot of issues which make him a great lead. However, although he has a number of attributes that other famous characters have, such as having an issue with authority, Oliver Stark somehow made him completely unique. Tom Harper has a serious chip on his shoulder but that doesn't stop him from being a great copper. He isn't the typical one man band who solves everything and is God's answer top the best Detective, and the story shows that great team work in involved.We are also soon introduced to Denise Levene who is the psychologist treating Tom. She is also a very strong character but comes across as a well balanced but intelligent woman. Somehow in many books with a lead female, some of the women are made out to be overly macho or pathetically weak, but here the balance was perfect.The story itself can seem in the beginning a little slow but as you read on you become more and more hooked with the story developing quickly and the killer becoming more and more brazen as time goes on. I love the fact that many mistakes are made, and that the killer is openly challenging the police.As the story progresses, the pace increases and I found myself turning pages at the speed of lightning. This debut novel is outstanding and by far the best debut I've had the pleasure of reading all year. There is a lot of detail involving the crime scenes, forensics and police procedure so not for the faint hearted.Patricia Cornwell used to be one of my favourite authors however I gave up the ghost last year and no longer read her work. This book reminded me of the type of work Cornwell produced in the early years. I cannot recommend this highly enough and would recommend it to people who are a fan of this genre.All I need to do now is impatiently wait for instalment 2!

    Good first effort. The base premise is workable, but the story fails in knitting together a believable "suspend reality" story-line.Throughout the novel there are plausibility leaps that are insurmountable.The book may be a good cross Pacific novel airline read, but I feel many expect a better effort next time.Many await his next book.
