'Good job you didn't turn on the lights ...' A student nurse has the shock of her life when she discovers her patient, prosecutor Derek Nicholson, brutally murdered in his bed. The act seems senseless - Nicholson was terminally ill with only weeks to live. But what most shocks Detective Robert Hunter of the Los Angeles Robbery Homicide Division is the calling card the killer left behind. For Hunter, there is no doubt that the killer is trying to communicate with the police, but the method is unlike anything he's ever seen before. And what could the hidden message be? Just as Hunter and his partner Garcia reckon they've found a lead, a new body is found - and a new calling card. But with no apparent link between the first and second victims, all the progress they've made so far goes out of the window. Pushed into an uncomfortable alliance with the confident Alice Beaumont, Hunter must race to put together the pieces of the investigation ...before the Death Sculptor puts the final touches to his masterpiece.

Dieser Teil war sogar noch besser als die Vorgänger. Und ich hoffe, dass das mit Robert/Alice im nächsten Buch was wird, denn er braucht wirklich mal ne Frau. ;)Kann jedem Thrillerfan Chris Carter wirklich nur empfehlen!
Wow. Soviel Wahn in einem Buch habe ich wirklich noch nicht oft zu lesen bekommen, ich bin begeistert. Einige ehemalige Polizisten werden grausam ermordet und aus ihren Leichenteilen formt der Mörder eine bizarre Schattenshow. Die detaillierten beschreibungen der Leichen nach ihrem Auffinden waren s...
Even though these books are creepy and scary, I feel like it's only every second book that really works. I loved book 1 and 3, while book 2 and 4 were a bit more 'meh.'I think the reason why I didn't like this book as much was the level as suspension. It wasn't as high as I'm used to with this serie...
I was lucky enough to spot "The Death Sculptor" on a sale and get it. After few first chapters I already knew I'll read the rest of the series! I enjoyed Chris Carter style of writing, how he can stop the action and leave the reader much to imagine but on the other hand, described the crime scene...
