Book Review: Hangman by Jack Heath

Timothy Blake is NOT your average, everyday FBI consultant – and his story is NOT your average, everyday thriller… This is a helluva ride – the action is non-stop, the characterization is spot-on (in the creepiest and most darkly delightful of ways), the plot is well thought out with twists and turns that keep the reader on their toes without ever feeling overdone. Blake is a fantastic creation – but his “lifestyle” is not for the faint of heart or squeamish. The style is fast-paced without feeling like you’re being sped through the reveals; the secrets unfold with surprising delicacy, given the subject matter and genre, and the reader is fed just enough detail along the way to keep you guessing without ever actually admitting to anything until the time is just right.

There are a lot of gruesome bits, sprinkled like his omnipresent salt throughout the tale and often found, like the salt, in the unlikeliest of places. It makes for a marvelously edgy read that always leaves you just a little off-kilter, wondering where the next tidbit (teehee – you’ll laugh once you know Blake’s secret) is coming from. The ending suggests this may be a first appearance, rather than a one-and-done – I truly hope so, because this is writing that I want more of, post haste.
