Rattle Fiona Cummins

cover99476-medium Pub: Macmillan

A serial killer to chill your bones

A psychopath more frightening than Hannibal Lecter.

He has planned well. He leads two lives. In one he’s just like anyone else. But in the other he is the caretaker of his family’s macabre museum.

Now the time has come to add to his collection. He is ready to feed his obsession, and he is on the hunt.

Jakey Frith and Clara Foyle have something in common. They have what he needs.

What begins is a terrifying cat-and-mouse game between the sinister collector, Jakey’s father and Etta Fitzroy, a troubled detective investigating a spate of abductions.

This is a gripping debut with which to start 2017.

The man in the pinstripe suit is quite menacing and scared me just a little, but from the beginning to the end this book has ‘chiller thriller’ written all over it.

Clara and Jakey, both born with oddities that ‘The Bone Collector’ finds interesting, Fiona Cummins has created a serial killer that I both loved and loathed.

This novel is brilliantly told. From the families anger, grief and domestic woes, the reader can build an emotional attachment to each character.

The topic of each of the children’s defects has been heavily researched, and sensitively told. I was increasing interested by the whole skeleton and bones theme.

There is a quality to this novel, and I want to read more about the characters, The Bone Collector is an amazing ‘creature’ and  I do think that he has more to offer us.
