Shadow Man

Shadow Man - Cody McFadyen This is the story of a serial killer who believes himself descended from Jack the Ripper; it has a high ick factor from the gruesome murder methods and gruesome descriptions thereof. That notwithstanding, I enjoyed the read by getting interested in the interpersonal relations of Smoky Barrett and her team, which were really quite well done.

The story is told in the present tense and in the first person. Don't mind the first person, but I occasionally found the present tense tripping me up - guess I associate it too much with bad fanfiction!
