A helicopter crash and burned bodies.
A faceless corpse.
A mysterious town.
Carter is drawn into a dark case from which there seems no escape.
Singapore Killer is the fifth instalment in the Ash Carter series. Opening with a bang, Murray wastes no time in getting things going, where things are kicked into high speed, with no chance of slowing down till the final page! It definitely gets the heart racing and has you on the edge of you seat.
1950’s Singapore. A deliberate helicopter crash kicks things off, which see’s Ash become embroiled in the search for a “faceless” killer called Blackjack. Along the way the body count rises and the stakes increase. Told from the point of view of Ash with some chapters dedicated to killer, is a great insight into their sadistic mind and enhances the story.
Ash is a great character that has been created and brought to life brilliantly. Being the fifth book in the series, I didn’t think I was going to be able to connect with him, but Murray instantly put my concerns at ease and he had Ash work his magic over me. I also really enjoyed Madame Chau who definitely keeps Ash under control.
I enjoyed Murray’s writing and he was able to keep me engaged throughout. This type of book is generally not one I would normally read, but I am glad I gave it a go. Singapore Killer can be read as a stand-alone and it is easy to follow along with, but to really experience Ash in all his glory, I think you do need to read this series from the beginning.
A fast paced read full of action and suspense, Singapore Killer will have you entranced, enthralled and up reading till the sun comes up. It was a pleasure to be able to read and review Singapore Killer which I recommend.
Thank you to Murray Bailey for allowing me to read an advanced copy of Singapore Killer which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
