Reading progress update: I've read 167 out of 344 pages.
Hidden - Emma Kavanagh

it’s so amazing—everything—even the challenging but beautiful way it’s structured. “instant flashbacks”; shifting narrative point-of-view; shifting days featured in a tumultuous week for many intersecting characters.I guess some people would hate all this, but I love it. and the Mystery premise is fascinating: what really happened to Emily? is her fate tied to the gunman prowling around the hospital? does it have anything with Dylan Rowe, the comatose criminal lying in vegetative state in Ward 12? or is it more to do with an affair of Mara’s, gone wrong and bitter?

 

this is an author for me. that’s how it feels, and I hope it stays that way.

this book does only The 5-Star Strut, right before my very eyes! will it last, or will there be a misstep? dunno...but super-good, so far.

geez, I haven’t gotten this scared during a sequence of hospital scenes since reading Ray Garton’s Darklings, but that involved an infestation of slimy, slithery worm-things; this story, I think, will feature a human monster. so, yes, it will probably be even scarier.

 

terrific creepy opening.

Emma Kavanagh - The Killer On The Wall
The Killer On The Wall - Emma Kavanagh

In a close knitted community in the north of England 15year old Isla Bell ran along Hadrian’s Wall and stumbles onto 4 bodies and a young boy seriously wounded. From this day on everything changes for all the people who were involved.

 

20 years later Isla is a forensic psychologist. She examines the brains of serial killers and finally she is able to examine the convicted killer of those people she once found. Her father, who caught this man, built his career on this case. He is the famous Eric Bell. Isla is married to Ramsey, the only survivor. But suddenly  the killing starts again. But how can this be? The killer is behind bars for many years now. Is there a copycat? Or was there another killer who starts again now?

 

“The Killer on the Wall” is a dark thriller. Everyone who was involved in the crimes is traumatized. Isla waited 20 years and prepared herself to examine finally the man who killed people she knew and beaten her husband almost to dead. When the new victims begin to appear she does not know what to think. Her whole world begins to fall apart. The author does a great job showing this. But on the other hand nothing really happens for quite a long time. There is also Mina, a young police officer from London who moved to the north for personal reasons. Through her we see the police work on this case. She begins to look at the old case again and finds disturbing things. This is not as gripping as it sounds. The pace is very slow. In the last third the author offers suspect after suspect and twist after twist. But it is a bit too much. And the motive did not convince me.

 

The story itself is far from new but it is unique enough developed. The characters are ok, although I could not connect to them. This is my second book from Emma Kavanagh. I already had my problems with her writing style in the other book I read. I think the writing is aloof. I just could not connect to this book. I found my thoughts drifting apart while reading. It is probably my personal problem but I just don’t like the author’s writing style. It was an OK read but I think I would not choose a third book from the author. Her books are just not my cup of tea.
