About this deal

In früheren Teilen der Reihe ist mir manchmal aufgefallen, dass gewisse Grundinformationen zu Hunter mitunter ellenlang in jedem neuen Teil immer wieder neu durchgekaut wurden. The killer is brutal, the victims are very different from each other and how they are killed yet Garcia and Hunter know they are related because of something the killer leaves at each scene. Detective Robert Hunter has long been a valuable member of the Ultra Violent Crime division of LAPD Homicide, investigating the most heinous crimes committed. If the violence had been toned down somewhat to match the original crime, then for the plot and storytelling, I would not have hesitated in giving this 5 stars. Featuring a serial killer like no other, some of the murder scenes are brutal, gory, gruesome and really imaginative, written in a way that conveys the hatefulness, torture and viciousness behind them.

Um die persönliche Entwicklung der beiden Ermittler nachvollziehen zu können, wäre es in meinen Augen jedoch ratsam, bei Band 1 zu beginnen und die Reihe chronologisch zu lesen. Even though the page count is of 500+ more, I was damn sure that this author will not disappoint the readers in any way and it comes out true. With no forensic evidence to go on, Robert Hunter must catch the most disciplined and systematic killer that he has ever encountered, someone who thrives on. Entweder habe ich es überlesen (so wie die sonst immer auftretende Lebensgeschichte Hunters, die ich diesmal irgendwie vermisste).Another problem - when you finish one, it can take you ages to find something else remotely that good. It is made even more disturbing when the autopsy reveals a poem, left by the killer, inside the body of their victim. Der Killer in diesem Buch nennt sich der Lehrmeister und hat es sich zur Aufgabe gemacht seine Opfer vor allem mit Angst und Schmerz zu brechen.

Hunter must use all the resources at his disposal to determine what’s going on and how to connect the dots. Detective Robert Hunter was seen some of the world’s worst sadist and psychotic killers in his time with the LAPD Ultra Violent Crime Division but in Genesis he is going to come up against a killer like no one before, a killer that is twisted and evil beyond imagination.I found Genesis to be along similar lines to his other books but with a bit of a twist - or so I thought anyway . When another murder occurs, albeit in a different manner, with the same level of brutality and hateful viciousness it suggests that the same killer is at work. In the end, I came to the conclusion that the author tried too hard in the wrong direction to make the book better than his last one and went up a notch on the shock factor. Instead, he knows he is dealing with a killer who is tremendously disciplined, systematic, creative, and patient.
