I’m excited to welcome you today to my stop on the blog tour for gripping thriller Written In Blood, the latest instalment of Chris Carter’s wonderful series featuring Robert Hunter. Thank you to Anne Cater and Simon & Schuster for giving me the opportunity to read and review this fantastic book.
About the book:
A serial killer will stop at nothing…
His most valuable possession has been stolen. Now he must retrieve it, at any cost.
Angela Wood wanted to teach the man a lesson. It was a bag, just like all the others. But when she opens it, the worst nightmare of her life begins.
A journal ends up at Robert Hunter’s desk. It soon becomes clear that there is a serial killer on the loose. And if he can’t stop him in time, more people will die.
If you have read it
You must die…

Whenever I read a Chris Carter book, I always wonder how he’s going to be able to top the previous book in the series. But somehow he always does! And this one is no exception. Brutal, heart pounding and full of everything I’ve come to love about his Robert Hunter series, I was instantly drawn back into the world of serial killers and mayhem and, I must say, enjoyed every single blood soaked word of it!
This time Robert Hunter finds himself on the hunt for a serial killer after receiving a call from a colleague who has just taken delivery of a mysterious journal. But this isn’t just any old journal, this is a journal that’s full of the secrets of a depraved mind. And Robert, once again, finds himself in a race against time to uncover the identity of a serial killer before even more people die. This is a killer who will stop at nothing to get back what is rightfully his. And Robert Hunter will do everything in his power to catch him before he strikes again.
Chris Carter’s past experience as a member of the Michigan State District Attorney’s Criminal Psychology team stands him in good stead once again as he, or rather Robert Hunter, delves deep inside the mind of a serial killer. Can Hunter and his trusted partner Garcia solve the hidden clues within the journal before it’s too late?
Written in Blood is a fantastic addition to the series, keeping me on my toes from beginning to end. The tension ratchets up to breaking point as Hunter and Garcia get closer and closer to the truth, leading to a heart stopping conclusion that had me breathless and on the edge of my seat right up until the final page had been turned. Although part of a series, this instalment would read very well as a standalone and is a great introduction to the series that I’m sure will leave you gasping for more!
Chris Carter is a genius when it comes to writing about serial killers, his knowledge of criminal behaviour second to none. His writing draws you in from the outset, with a dark and disturbing storyline that is guaranteed to set your pulse racing. With twists, turns and surprises that will keep you turning the pages, Written in Blood is an outstanding book that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.
