Ragdoll (Detective William Fawkes 1) by Daniel Cole

Ragdoll (Detective William Fawkes, #1)


A body is discovered with the dismembered parts of six victims stitched together, nicknamed by the press as the ‘Ragdoll’. Assigned to the shocking case are Detective William ‘Wolf’ Fawkes, recently reinstated to the London Met, and his former partner Detective Emily Baxter. The ‘Ragdoll Killer’ taunts the police by releasing a list of names to the media, and the dates on which he intends to murder them. With six people to save, can Fawkes & Baxter catch a killer when the world is watching their every move?

Simply put, Ragdoll is unnerving, compulsive, twisted and clever. It is also, surprisingly, darkly comic.

The characters are great, even the ones you want to punch in the face, and the killer’s methods are ingenious, gruesome and spectacular. The book is absolutely gripping and I could barely put it down!

To compare it to Se7en is not particularly original, but it is accurate: Ragdoll is compelling, disturbing, tense and shocking…with jokes.

I can’t wait to read more from Daniel Cole. Huge thanks to Orion Publishing Group and NetGalley for the ARC of Ragdoll.
