  • A solid read

    I was instantly drawn to this book, not having read any of Sebastian Fitzek’s work before. I had heard so many great things about his books, so when I was given the opportunity to read The Package, I jumped at the chance. The plot was so intriguing to me and definitely piqued my interest. It is creepy, scary and opens with a disturbing prologue, that is just so chilling. It also deals with some hard hitting topics which include rape, mental illness and pedophilia, which may be a trigger for some readers. The mystery itself was well plotted and executed and there are some decent twists and turns to throw you off course. The characters although not all likeable, are well developed and as with the story, have been written well. The Package is a complex tale and does require your full attention and concentration. It’s short chapters make that easier, but there are a lot of layers to it. Overall this is a solid read and although not to everyone’s taste, don’t let that stop you from reading it for yourself if it interests you.

  • Twists & Turns Galore!

    Now here's a book which won't just confuse you - it will tie you up in knots, and then some! Emma was attacked and raped in her hotel room by a predator commonly referred to as The Hairdresser, due to his penchant for shaving the head of his victims. She is convinced of this but not everyone believes her, not even her husband. It has left her with understandable fears of everyday life. She has given up her job as a doctor and stays at home where she feels safe and secure in the knowledge that her aggressor won't find her. After all, his previous victims were all murdered. Then she is persuaded to accept a package for a neighbour. She has no idea just how much that one little parcel is going to affect her. I've never heard of this author before; hardly surprising since he is the number one bestselling author in Germany and I live in Scotland. This is an excellent translation, very readable indeed. Not for the faint-hearted, this book has more twists and turns than anything else I've read. Twists and turns galore, I was pulled one way and then the other and just could not decide which version to believe. This is one novel where you can trust no-one - not a single soul. But what an outcome! I must admit, at one point I wondered if we were ever going to get to the crux of the matter, but I'm glad I stuck with it. This one will play with your mind, and earns 4.5*.

  • Clumsy and frustrating

    The descriptioms of the scenes and characters were decent but it did not feel suspenseful and it was hard to care about anyone except the dog.
