HEADHUNTER Reimagined is an all-new telling of Michael Slade’s first Special X thriller (published in 1984) about the psycho-hunters of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
The Headhunter is loose on the streets of Vancouver.
The psycho’s victims are everywhere – floating in the Fraser River, buried in a shallow grave, nailed to a totem pole on the university campus. All are women. All are headless.
Then the taunting photographs arrive. Carefully posed shots of the women’s heads stuck on poles.
The Mounties of Special X are up against a unique brand of killer. A killer whose sexual psychosis stretches back through Ecuador’s steaming jungle and a scream-filled New Orleans dungeon to a dead-of-winter manhunt in the Rocky Mountains a century ago.
I have mixed feelings about this book. The idea is a good one, as the book is ‘an all-new telling of Michael Slade’s first Special X thriller about the psycho-hunters of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.’ And this is what made me to ask Netgalley to give me this book. But the process of reading it, was quite hard for me. There are so many different scenes at the beginning of the book, with so many characters, and this thing made it hard for me to remember all the names. So, sorry Michael Slade, but I can’t remember more than 3 or 4 names.
On the other hand, the book is interesting and it deserves the time spent with it in your hands.
I devoured this book between work and home and it kept my brain working at high speed, thinking who the killer is or what will happen next.
About the end of the book I will tell only this: is an exceptional and annoying scene.
