Emma’s the one that got away.
The only survivor of a killer known in the tabloids as ‘the hairdresser’ – because of the trophies he takes from his victims.
Or she thinks she was.
The police aren’t convinced. Nor is her husband. She never even saw her tormentor properly, but now she recognises him in every man.
Questioning her sanity, she gives up her job as a doctor in the local hospital and retreats from the world. It is better to stay at home. Quiet. Anonymous. Safe. No one can hurt her here.
And all she did was take a parcel for a neighbour.
She has no idea what she’s let into her home.
I was instantly drawn to this book, not having read any of Sebastian Fitzek’s work before. I had heard so many great things about his books, so when I was given the opportunity to read The Package, I jumped at the chance.
The plot was so intriguing to me and definitely piqued my interest. It is creepy, scary and opens with a disturbing prologue, that is just so chilling. It also deals with some hard hitting topics which include rape, mental illness and pedophilia, which may be a trigger for some readers.
The mystery itself was well plotted and executed and there are some decent twists and turns to throw you off course. The characters although not all likeable, are well developed and as with the story, have been written well.
The Package is a complex tale and does require your full attention and concentration. It’s short chapters make that easier, but there are a lot of layers to it. Overall this is a solid read and although not to everyone’s taste, don’t let that stop you from reading it for yourself if it interests you.
