The Fourth Monkey

Book: The Fourth Monkey

Series: 4MK Thriller #1

Author: JD Barker

For over five years, the Four Monkey Killer has terrorized the residents of Chicago. When his body is found, the police quickly realize he was on his way to deliver one final message, one which proves he has taken another victim who may still be alive.

As the lead investigator on the 4MK task force, Detective Sam Porter knows even in death, the killer is far from finished. When he discovers a personal diary in the jacket pocket of the body, Porter finds himself caught up in the mind of a psychopath, unraveling a twisted history in hopes of finding one last girl, all while struggling with personal demons of his own.

With only a handful of clues, the elusive killer’s identity remains a mystery. Time is running out and the Four Monkey Killer taunts from beyond the grave in this masterfully written fast-paced thriller.-Goodreads

Review: This book had a promising premise-a serial killer is found dead and a detective has to race to find the last victim. Unfortunately, a good portion of the book were diary entries written from the serial killers point of view and the writing style was not engaging. I didn't hate it but it could have been better.  

Grade: 2/5
