In Random, the author takes the readers through the obscure mind of a serial killer, who has no obvious acting pattern. Reviews of the Random So far regarding the guide we have now Random comments people are yet to however left the article on the overall game, or not make out the print however. With the main character as a serial killer who goes around Glasgow convinced that what he is doing is right and that it needs to be done, this is a crime novel with a difference. There was something slightly unsettling about that in the beginning for me. I cannot say anything bad about this book; I thoroughly enjoyed it and eagerly await the next novel by Mr Robertson.
Creative thriller told from the point of view of a serial killer with a despairing backstory of his own. And I have to call him by his nickname because at no point do I think his real full name is revealed. The idea that a book was too violent and written in the first person by the serial killer actually got me rather excited and I started reading Random as soon as it landed on my kindle. It's not a whodunit — for the killer tells us the story as it progresses — or even a 'why did he do it' as even that will become obvious, but the suspense is in whether or not he will get caught. The author presents a very profound theoretical and historical background to the plot. I find it very shocking that the applied strategies to sort out a random victim really fascinated me and I thought about how they would work in real life, how dangerous someone applying those methods would be for public life and safety.
This is a very cleverly written book. The end game that you won't see coming. Set in Glasgow which is always nice to read about a place you know and I don't think I have read many books set here. The feedback to lease Random -- various other viewers are able to make a decision with regards to a ebook. This one is fairly short and smoothly written, making it move along at a nice, even pace.
Good characterisation, I even felt empathy for the killer and understood his motivation albeit that he could have driven his energies to better use like his wife was doing. Apparently, Paton was also receiving counseling for insomnia, generalized anxiety and nightmares as well. It's unpleasant because any of us might find ourselves where he is. Where was the justice system when it was needed? Any names that are on this website is just an invention and results of special algorithms. Infidelities are exposed and the genuinely innocent are hurt, but then the killer has been hurt too; hurt beyond what he can bear. One of the human failings.
There's sardonic humour and sharp observation of people at their best and worst and you'll have to find out how it all works out. This is a story of a disciplined man, following a plan with minimal emotional involvement. Val McDermid doesn't do this and neither does Iain Banks. This is not only a disturbing thought, but one that is written with incredible skill. I particularly liked his first one and was interested to find out during BritCrime at the weekend that it had been used as a real way to murder someone.
Executing the plan costs our killer. Cole Grave is another interesting read by Craig Robertson. Only flag comments that clearly need our attention. The man of a thousand twists is back with his latest edge of the seat thriller. A well deserved 4 stars from me. But this is a book of surprises. Craig Roberstons writing is good enough to convince me to give the next book a try and find out where it goes.
This is his first novel and is entitled Random. It has a well thought out twist towards the end and the end of the story itself is believable. There were a few parts of the book that I did not appreciate, including the sections about gangs, with overtly graphic torture scenes, the tiny bit about dog fighting and the random fat shaming. As a stand-alone, it worked very well, and my only complaint would be that some of the characters were unfeasibly simple in order to drive the plot. There are no forensics to speak of and the police take a long step back, away from all the action. It will be interesting to see where the path of the other books go as the police input is flashes between the news clippings and small interactions.
This is an unusual serial killer book, as it is told from the point of view of the killer himself. The city itself is as much of a character as any of the cast. A 1 star review which actually made up my mind and I downloaded it instantly. As a little advice: Some of the murders are brutal and many swear words are applied. The parent sees her in Central Park one day and approaches her. Then he stalks them, sometimes for weeks, sometimes longer.
