Londra, 2010. Il processo al Cremation Killer, Naguib Khalid, è giunto al momento della sentenza. Il detective William Fawkes, detto Wolf, è in ansiosa attesa del verdetto. Perché le prove a carico dell’imputato sono indiziarie, e c’è chi dice che siano state inventate da Wolf stesso. Quando Khalid viene assolto, Wolf lo aggredisce in tribunale e viene rinchiuso in un ospedale psichiatrico. Ma pochi giorni dopo Khalid viene colto sul fatto: se solo avessero ascoltato Wolf, l’ultima vittima avrebbe potuto salvarsi invece di morire bruciata viva come le altre. Londra, 2014: Wolf è tornato in servizio, ma è un uomo distrutto. Divorziato, ha appena traslocato in un palazzo fatiscente ai margini della capitale inglese. Una notte, viene convocato su una scena del crimine. In un appartamento disabitato si trova un cadavere. Un solo corpo… Ma sei vittime. Sei parti differenti, sei membra di persone diverse, cucite insieme in modo rozzo. Ma non basta, perché il killer fa arrivare alla stampa un elenco di nomi e date...

Ragdoll is a gritty story that draws comparisons to David Fincher’s superb neo-noir thriller, Se7en. Wolf is the broken lead, propelling the tale forward with his hidden link to the killer, but the viewpoint switches between the various unwitting players in the Ragdoll Killer’s sick game – the futur Leggi tutto
I can't stop thinking about this book, I have a severe book hangover, I just loved everything about it. I found it to be very addicting. This book is incredible! It is complex, thrilling, gripping, exciting and horrendous, all at the same time. Ragdoll opens four years prior to the events of the ‘Rag Leggi tutto
I'd rate this 4.5 stars. Despite the fact that I had a medley of Aerosmith's Rag Doll and Rag Doll by The Four Seasons running through my head while reading this book (not because of any plot points, just because my head is full of musical earworms), Daniel Cole's Ragdoll was a pretty fantastic,

This one was so good I found myself reading bits of it out loud to anyone who wanted to listen. It is a very gory thriller and yet the humour in much of the dialogue made me laugh out loud! The characters too are charming especially the main character, William Fawkes or Wolf as he is better known. H Leggi tutto

Detective Sergeant William Fawkes has recently returned to the Metropolitan Police Force after a significant absence. After one of his cases—the Cremation Killer—went to t Leggi tutto
RAGDOLL by Daniel Cole is a brilliant debut novel that began as a rejected TV screenplay, that was later adopted to a novel. I am so glad the story was told. This novel reminded me of SE7EN but with dark humour throughout. This novel is not for the squeamish. “The Cremation Killer”, as the press had Leggi tutto
