The Butcher and the Wren By Alaina Urquhart

The Butcher and the Wren By Alaina Urquhart


In deep Louisiana, a serial killer with a taste for medical experimentation is completing his most ambitious project yet. The media call him ‘The Butcher’ – and, so far, he’s proved impossible to catch.

With her encyclopaedic knowledge of humanity’s darkest minds, and years of experience examining their victims, forensic pathologist Dr Wren Muller is the best there is. The longer the Butcher’s killing spree continues, the more determined she is to bring him to justice.

And yet, he continues to elude her.

As body after body piles up on Wren’s examination table, her obsession grows. Pressure to put an end to the slaughter mounts. And her enemy becomes more brazen.

How far is Wren willing to go to draw the Butcher into the light . . .?

My Thoughts:

I loved the sound of this book and I could not wait to read it, it didn’t disappoint. It is fast paced from the very first page and I felt as though I got lost in the story and didn’t want to surface until the end. I read this book in a day and a half. I wanted to know what would happen , the characters bring this story alive and also the amount of research that has gone into this book is phenomenal. For a debut author this is exceptional, I cannot wait for the next book. I like the fact that each chapter is either coming from Wren or the killer and the ending was shocking but oh so good. I highly recommend this book.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
