Once I read a few chapters, it captivated me with its stomach turning details that made it feel like you were in the story. With a good mix of realistic forensic science, and edge of your seat mystery, The Christopher Killer has a jaw dropping twisted ending that will leave you hanging so that you will have to read the second book in the series.
