    What a great mind blowing read! It was absolutely brilliant and chilling read! The story is told from the killer's point of view and the victims. It is a book within a book and that works well . I will not give anything away and will only say don't miss The Nothing Man, you will be looking over your shoulder and it will stay with you for some time. Thanks to NetGalley and Blackstone publishing for a fantastic read!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Slow Moving

    3.5 stars The Nothing Man by Catherine Ryan Howard is a psychological thriller. First, let me thank Edelweiss, the publisher Blackstone Publishing, and of course the author, for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. My Synopsis: (No major reveals, but if concerned, skip to My Opinions) Twenty years ago, a serial rapist/killer struck 5 homes in the area of Cork City. He was Dubbed "The Nothing Man", because there was never any clues or evidence left behind. Eve Black was 12, and the only member of her family to survive the terror. Eve has now written a book about this killer, detailing the crime she lived through, as well as the crimes perpetrated against the other victims. She hopes that this book will be therapeutic for her, and perhaps finally help capture this elusive killer. Jim Doyle, a security guard at a grocery store, is reading Eve's book. He is reading it closely, and getting angry. He is "The Nothing Man". My Opinions: I found the first half of this book really slow. The second half I didn't want to put down. However, during that first half I did a lot of skimming, and was quite bored. The story is told from the perspectives of both Eve Black and her book, and from Jim's point of view. The "book-within-a-book" method of telling the story worked very well. It was interesting to see the impact of the events on both the survivors (or family thereof), and on the perpetrator and the relationship he had with his family. I think the only character that really stood out for me was that of Ed Healy, the police officer who worked the case until the end. I am probably going to be in the minority with my 3.5 stars. It was better than good, but not quite great for me. I think it was the first half of the book that really dragged for me.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Mind bender.

    Enjoyed this book immensely. Written in an unusual way. Wondered if I was reading a documentary or fiction. I would recommend this to all mystery lovers.
