"Los Angeles, December 4th - exactly three weeks until Christmas day. Angela Wood, a master in the art of pickpocket, has just finished for the day - six hundred and eighty-seven dollars - not bad for less than fifteen minutes work. As she celebrates her profitable day with a cocktail, one of the patrons in the lounge she's in catches her attention by being rude to an old man. Angela decides to teach him a lesson, and steals the man's expensive-looking leather bag. Inside is no money ... no laptop computer ... nothing of any value ... at least not to Angela. Just a black, leather-bound book, surprisingly heavy. Curiosity takes over and in the comfort of her apartment, Angela quickly leafs through the pages. That is when the worst nightmare of her life begins. This is no ordinary book. Read it at your own peril."--Provided by publisher.… (més)

A young pickpocket gets annoyed and steals a bag to teach a rude man a lesson but when she sees the contents she gets a shock. The bag contains a diary detailing a series of kills and when LAPD's Robert Hunter manages to verify that these are real, the clock is ticking. The killer wants his book back, the girl is in danger and Hunter and his team need to stop any further killing.
This was my first book by Carter and I only picked it up as I'm going to see him speak in a couple of weeks. This is the sort of book I would generally avoid and after reading it I'm sure that beyond the other one I've bought I won't be reading more. In fact it's actually a very good book within its genre, the action is pacy, there are great bits of psychology and a few twists. The problem for me is that it's just a little too gratuitous in terms of the violence. ( )

POSSIBLE TRIGGERS: Graphic Violence and Torture
Meet Angela, a pickpocket who takes the wrong thing from the wrong person...a diary that is actually a murder book, detailing over a dozen macabre, gruesome deaths. Normally such clear notes as these would give Hunter and his partner Garcia, some insight into the killer and the hunt would be on...but it’s the psychopathic serial killer who goes on the offensive and keeps surprising the usually clever and insightful Det. Robert Hunter. I was somewhat surprised that the detectives didn't speed read through the book to find and identify the sixteen or so victims, but I guess that would have been a bit too laborious for us to sit through when this author can show us this killers' skills in very, very graphic action. Up close and personal takes on a whole new meaning...believe me! Instead, the cat and mouse game (with police relegated to the role of the latter) gives us a chance to appreciate Robert Hunter’s psychological insights and to realize there are many inconsistencies the killer’s documented motivations for the murders. Things get macabre but if you've this talented author before you know that it's nothing we haven’t seen in his other novels. We even get a trip into the Dark Web...a place you really want to avoid. Seriously. This is a L-O-N-G book nearly 500 pages. It's graphic and Carter's ability to paint with the written word will make you feel that you are in the last moments of the victim's lives...it is NOT for the weak of stomach or the faint of heart...and that is not just graphic words I pulled out of thin air to describe it. Other than Robert and Garcia, I can't say that I really liked any of the characters...but if this killer has his way, none of them will be around long anyway. ( )

Taschendiebin Angela Wood ist wohl an den Falschen geraten. Als sie mitbekommt, wie unmöglich sich ein Gast in der Bar benimmt, entwendet sie ihm seine Ledertasche. Es ist nichts Wertvolles enthalten, aber das Notizbuch macht ihr Angst. So landet es bei der LAPD und wird somit zum Fall für Hunter und Garcia, die gleich erkennen, dass sie es mit einem sadistischen Täter zu tun haben.
Dies ist der elfte Fall des Ermittler-Duos Robert Hunter und Carlos Garcia und mein sechstes Buch aus der Reihe. Christ Carters Schreibstil ist flüssig zu lesen und sehr fesselnd. Dabei geht es immer grausam und sehr brutal zu. Also Vorsicht, wenn man das nicht ertragen kann.
Die Charaktere sind gut und vielschichtig beschrieben. Robert Hunter ist ein intelligenter Detective mit einem fotografischen Gedächtnis, der sich in Täter gut hineinversetzen kann. Er ist ein sympathischer Mensch, der sehr perfekt rüberkommt. Sein Kollege und Freund Carlos Garcia ist ein Familienmensch. Auch er ist sympathisch und ein guter Ermittler. Doch auch der Täter ist ein cleverer Typ, der nicht untätig bleibt. Er macht Hunter und Garcia zu schaffen und stellt ein Ultimatum.
Auch dieses Mal ist es wieder sehr spannend, selbst wenn es zuvor schon bessere Fälle gegeben hat. Mir hat das Buch gut gefallen. ( )

If you like the writing style of Chris Carter you will love Written in Blood. As a fan of Robert Hunter you will of course know that the author is a trained criminal psychologist. This is reflected in his books and gives great insight into the mind of a killer....read and enjoy :) ( )
