Overview


Detective Inspector Andrew Hicks thinks he knows all about murder. However horrific the act, the reasons behind a crime are usually easy to explain. So when a woman is found bludgeoned to death, he suspects a crime of passion and attention focuses on her possessive ex-husband. But when a second body is found, similarly beaten, Hicks is forced to think again.

When more murders arrive in quick succession, Hicks realizes he is dealing with a type of killer he has never faced before, one who fits nowhere within his logic. Then the letters begin to arrive . . .

As the death toll rises, Hicks must face not only a killer obsessed with randomness and chaos, but also a secret in his own past. If he is to stop the killings, he must confront the truth about himself . . .

Editorial Reviews

Val McDermid
“Steve Mosby has become one of a handful of writers who make me excited about crime fiction.”
Booklist

The Guardian
“He writes like the very best American thriller writers. Cancel all other engagements for the day.”
The Daily Telegraph
“A serial killer saga that's more intelligent than one of Jo Nesbo's, but just as thrilling.”

    The Murder Code by Steve Mosby

    The Murder Code is a good but not great read. While there are many interesting common personal conflicts and histories, the pace of the story was up and down. The common history of abuse by emotionally flawed fathers and, man’s fear of fatherhood create an interesting backdrop for how they affect life’s journey of the characters. The writer does an excellent job of creating and developing the main characters. But, in the end, the enormous effort to break the murder code to locate the serial killer before more die falls flat. A good story, but save the computer time to break the code as the answer is much simpler and obvious.
