What you don’t know by Joann Chaney: read 19/1/17 – 21/1/17
*I received a copy via netgalley in return for an honest review.
This novel is dark, vulgar and utterly creepy! Written brilliantly.
The majority of the novel is spent 7 years after the discovery of 31 bodies on the property of Jacky. The novel moves around 3 central characters and their journeys when a copycat killer stalks anyone with a connection to the original crime.
Hoskins is the burnout cop, struggling to hold his life together.
Sammie is the ruthless reporter, willing to do anything for a story.
Gloria is the creepy wife of Jacky, as she stands by him we wonder if she knew & why she is she so strange?
Jacky is terrifying as the depraved serial killer and is horror movie worthy with his torture murders and his obsessional/creepy mannerisms.
All together it is an amazing debut novel and a thoroughly scary read!
