I have some new favourite characters after reading Cannibal City – DI Duncan Waddell and FBI profiler Odessa Thorne are both excellent and enjoyed following them.
I also really enjoyed Waddell’s interactions with his colleague who is in a coma – Stevie.
Is it so bad that my favourite character was the murderer?
Along with some truly gruesome acts and some really quite revolting scenes – Cannibal City provides a gritty crime thriller with a brush a dark humour across the top.
The storyline was inventive and well paced and I thoroughly enjoyed the book.

When a career criminal comes forward to say he was targeted by the killer but somehow managed to get away, Waddell hopes it’s the breakthrough they need. But can they trust this witness who’s known to be a habitual liar?
As they close in on their ruthless killer Waddell must look into a heart of darkness to get his killer.
