Gruesome just how I like my reads. fantastic read with great characters. Great plot. Loved the ending. Hope there is more to come. 5*.
Thank you NetGalley for this book.Looks like a little prayer, thanking NetGalley. And prayers, in a certain way, play a role in this book. It all revolves around a church, where a body is found in a crypt. Nothing wrong with that except for the fact it is the body of a young man who died recently.Kate Hanson and her colleagues start with trying to find who the boy was and why he was left in the crypt, and along the way they encounter a number of family and friends of the young man, and a number [...]

Thank you Netgalley and Severn Publishing for the eARC.This 4th in the Kate Hanson series is a good read. This was my 1st book by A.J. Cross and it can definitely be read as a standalone. A body is found in a crypt at St. Bartholomew's Church, his throat ripped out. The young man, Matthew Flynn, had been missing since the previous October.Kate joins the police team of Corrigan and Watts in her capacity as a forensic psychologist in what will prove to be a demanding case.Father Delaney of St. Bar [...]
When I started reading this, I thought from the first couple of pages that I was in for a treat, and it turned out to be true. I love forensic mysteries and this one will keep you on the edge of your seat while you search for answers to the many questions the novel raises. Tray as I might, I didn't ever manage to guess exactly what was going on in this book until it was revealed at the end. I read so many mystery and suspense novels, that I am always impressed when the author manages to sneak on [...]
I wasn’t thrilled with this book. There was a lot of dialogue regarding a murder of a young man found in a crypt. The investigation plods along, the reader predicts who the antagonist is, but not if that person is the murderer and not knowing the reason why. A lot of the characters weren’t likable. Towards the last few pages another cold-case mystery becomes available to the reader which has something to do with the murdered man in the beginning. Didn’t make sense to me that at least a bit [...]
An interesting procedural that adds a forensic psychologist to the usual mix as the lead character. This latest case to come to the Unsolved Crime Unit is a poser for Kate- why was a 20 year old murdered and why was he in a locked crypt? There are some twists and turns and some creepy things, especially after someone else (no spoilers) turns up dead. Kate is not an especially original character but she's likable; the same is true for Watt and Corrigan. I'd not read the first books in this series [...]
This fourth novel in the Kate Hanson series is a fast paced, gripping crime novel that starts with the discovery of the remains of a young man in a crypt. He is quickly identified as Matthew Flynn, but the investigation is very difficult and complicated by a large cast of suspects and a series of contemporay issues that A.J. Cross handles expertly. The ending was unexpected even if a bit hurried.
Fast read. Good characters and plot.
I didn't realize this was #4 in a series but I don't believe it makes any difference. Good story although I had guessed the outcomewell with one or two twists I was not prepared for.
Although at times I was enthralled and interested in the story, but many times it just became rather monotonous.I do like the idea and the writing which was able to draw me in quite well. But the story just fell flat and the characters were difficult to understand. I didn’t care about any of them at all.As for the storyline, it also failed to drive any emotion within me at all.I guess this may be a case that this story wasn’t tailored for me, as I didn’t hate the direction things were goin [...]

Thank you Net Galley. I enjoyed this book very much. The author writes well and creates an interesting and gripping narrative with well developed characters. I look forward to reading more in the series.
Edge of your seat, bone-chilling, and enthralling, you won't be able to put this book down. You'll find yourself racing along with the Unsolved Crimes unit to try and solve the mystery. More than your average whodunit, you don't want to miss out!
