This kind of book isn't to everyone's liking. But if you are interested in the psychology of - or rather the clues allowing you to guess at the psychology of - serial killers / psychopaths etc., then this one is for you!

I find this area fascinating anyway, but Gordon Burn is a very intelligent, sophisticated and careful writer to boot. He manages to convey a sense of pervading menace and darkness in his tone. He also, fundamentally, writes of the people involved in a way that emphasises that they are real people who existed: a tad quiet, had a stroke at 55, belonged to a secret club as a teenager, had a squint, liked hammers etc.

After all, the most spine-tingling, amazing and possibly most important thing that the author points out is that the victims were everyday people, and so was the killer, apparently; until he finally - and utterly randomly - got found out.

A gripping and thought-provoking book that borders on literature.
