Blurb from NEL edition of Cutthroat:

By the time the second mutilated body was found, the press were talking about the Headhunter and the city of Vancouver was ready to explode with fear.

And then the photographs arrived. Carefully posed shots of the women’s heads stuck on poles. Enough to convince Superintendent Robert DeClercq that they were dealing with a very special kind of killer. A killer who inhabited a bizarre world of cannibalism, torture and sexual perversion.

A killer who was only just beginning …

‘Bizarre … full of tension and mystery with unforget­e scenes and weird happenings’ – The Scotsman
‘Well  written, very well researched … a gripper’ – Daily Mail
‘Macabre … a very polished tale’ – Sunday Telegraph
‘A thinking man’s Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ – The Vancouver Sun
