Summary

There were 54 victims before this. Who is number 55?

A thriller with a killer hook and an ending that will make you gasp!

Wilbrook in Western Australia is a sleepy, remote town that sits on the edge of miles and miles of unexplored wilderness. It is home to Police Sergeant Chandler Jenkins, who is proud to run the town’s small police station, a place used to dealing with domestic disputes and noise complaints.

All that changes on a scorching day when an injured man stumbles into Chandler’s station. He’s covered in dried blood. His name is Gabriel. He tells Chandler what he remembers.

He was drugged and driven to a cabin in the mountains and tied up in iron chains. The man who took him was called Heath. Heath told Gabriel he was going to be number 55. His 55th victim. 

Heath is a serial killer.

As a manhunt is launched, a man who says he is Heath walks into the same station. He tells Chandler he was taken by a man named Gabriel. Gabriel told Heath he was going to be victim 55.

Gabriel is the serial killer.

Two suspects. Two identical stories. Which one is the truth?

James Delargy has written one of the most exciting debuts of 2019. He masterfully paints the picture of a remote Western Australian town and its people, swallowed whole by the hunt for a serial killer. This novel has been sold in 19 countries so far and has just been optioned for film.

Very gripping story!

I have enjoyed listening to this audiobook thoroughly. I was completely hooked on it from the first chapter. If you like murder mysteries with a twist, then this is for you. A real page turner. It was like no other book I’ve read! Five stars. I applaud you James Delargy

Unsatisfying and unbelievable

The plot was not credible. I found it difficult to have any empathy with any of the characters and just wanted it to end. The ending however was less than satisfying.
