I consider myself a bit of an expert when it comes to anything horror. I love horror films and devour horror books. However, there were times in One by One where I had to put it down and walk away. Sold as a detective novel this is so much more. The descriptions of the horror that befalls the victims in this book leave you having to move away and think of something else. This is how good the writing is. I have always been a fan of this author and have followed his novels throughout. This one does not disappoint in any way.
The violence is just as good as previous novels. The familiar lovable characters of Hunter and Garcia are back as well as a new supporting characters being introduced. I have to say there are a few of the characters that I hope will make an appearance in later novels. The story is quick flowing and keeps you guessing throughout. I never guessed the twist and I defy anyone to say they did. This can be read as a stand-alone or as part of the series.
This is a thoroughly amazing horror, detective novel. I can’t wait to read the next. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
