Your face is a blur to him. But your body still bleeds.

The Farren family has been a plague upon Philadelphia's most dangerous neighbourhood, the Devil's Pocket, for generations. There, row after row of tumbledown houses hide dark secrets - none darker than Billy, the youngest Farren.

Afflicted by a syndrome that means he can't recognise faces, Billy must use photographs to identify his family - and his victims. And when your life has bled away, he takes a final, gruesome picture for his wall.

But what is the meaning of the horrific ritual Billy enacts with every murder? And is there any connection to a childhood event Detective Kevin Byrne has buried so well it's hidden even from his former partner Jessica Balzano?

MEDIA REVIEWS
Richard Montanari's elegiac tone takes the curse off Shutter Man, a blood-drenched thriller about a group of imperfectly domesticated boys who came from the same blighted neighborhood and grew up to become criminals and killers - and cops . . . Gripping * New York Times *
The plot twists and narrative conjuring tricks continued to the penultimate page . . . extra icing on what was already a very enjoyable and well-made cake * Crime Fiction Lover *
Exceptional . . . an engrossing story * Publishers Weekly *
Truly terrifying * Woman's Way *
A cracking good read * Promoting Crime Fiction *
Exceptional * Publishers Weekly *
Cannot be faulted as a police procedural * Crime Fiction Lover *
A chilling expose . . . skillfully woven with a couple of surprising twists at the end * CrimeWarp *
Montanari creates rich, interesting characters, but he spills buckets of blood and brutally murders everyone who crosses his killer's path * Kirkus *
The writing is almost poetic in places - but still readable and entertaining, as it should be in a crime novel. Eerie, satisfying and complex, this is one mystery definitely worth reading. * Doves Falling *
A cracking good read! * Promoting Crime Fiction *

“keeps you guessing...”

I do love Richard Montanari's books - although this one is not his best it is still very good and certainly keeps you guessing all the way to the end!

My fav is rosary girls.
