Starting this story, I was unsure as to how good it would be, but intrigued none the less.
At the beginning of the book we meet our main character, Greg Black, a man at the end of his tether with the British “underclass” as he refers to them. You know who I’m talking about, Chavs. Throughout the book he describes his run ins with his victims, and the description of the deaths does not disappoint.
I very much enjoyed this book, the description was enough whilst not being over the top, you get the gore and the author brings across the fear and hatred very well. I’m sure that anybody who has lived, or lives, on a Council Estate will automatically have the images of that area in their head during some of this book. The imagery throughout is fantastic, you can imagine not only the areas and the events of the book but it’s really easy to imagine the characters as well.
Greg Black himself is a well educated architect who has taken it as his mission to rid the world of Chavs, he describes his views very clearly and fully believes everything he is saying. It’s refreshing to read something with such a dedicated character, keeping the kills fresh throughout all three books. From researching Serial Killers in the past, this is not a bad interpretation of the mindset these people are in and it’s refreshing to see it brought across in a novel. I’ve read a few books incorporating killers and the characters don’t generally seem to be as dedicated to their cause.
I would definitely recommend this book, it’s unusual and I did not see the ending coming, this is refreshing for me as very often in both books and films, I see a lot of twists before they appear.
