The Jigsaw Man
By Nadine Matheson
With a title like The Jigsaw name, it’s pretty indicative that this novel may not be for the squeamish. However it slowly reels you in to a dark and twisty tale of under staffed and under resourced police, all battling their own demons, while trying to keep killers off the streets, in jail, and punished by law: A process that will make its own victims. Engaging, relatable characters, all with their own secrets, and fallibility will have you cheering and squirming as the race is on to save a life, and catch a killer. **Reviewed for Better Reading**
There’s a serial killer on the loose.
When bodies start washing up along the banks of the River Thames, DI Henley fears it is the work of Peter Olivier, the notorious Jigsaw Killer. But it can’t be him; Olivier is already behind bars, and Henley was the one who put him there.
The race is on before more bodies are found.
She’d hoped she’d never have to see his face again, but Henley knows Olivier might be the best chance they have at stopping the copycat killer. But when Olivier learns of the new murders, helping Henley is the last thing on his mind . . .
Will it take a killer to catch the killer?
Now all bets are off, and the race is on to catch the killer before the body count rises. But who will get there first – Henley, or the Jigsaw Killer?
