CRIME THRILLER REVIEW: The Fourth Monkey - JD Barker

Release Date: 27/06/17
Publisher:  Harper Collins


That’s the Four Monkey Killer or ‘4MK’. A murderer with a twisted vision and absolutely no mercy.

Detective Sam Porter has hunted him for five long years, the recipient of box after box of grisly trinkets carved from the bodies of 4MK’s victims.

But now Porter has learnt the killer’s twisted history and is racing to do the seemingly impossible – find 4MK’s latest victim before it’s too late…


"A criminal thriller that grabs you from the get go and rubs your face in the blood and guts of the killer deed. " is the best way I have of describing this title by JD Barker. After all she really does delivery in a high octane crime novel that really doesn't want to let you go.

As expected the pace is exhausting and with elements like taunting a detective that sets to chase you with your diary are thrown into the mix, you know that its going to have to end in one way. A cracking showdown.

This title for me did it all, it made me emotional with the way that the descriptions took place really adding flavour to the dish, it made you scream internally, it made you emotional and all round more than delivered with a pretty slick arc.

All round a cracker and I tell you now, get this book sooner rather than later, you'll feel a chill even in the summer heat. Magic.
