Currently Reading - Sawbones, Stuart MacBride

114 Pages.  Set in the USA.  Serial Killer book.  With vigilantes.  A victim who won't go easily.

According to the blurb from the author at the front of the book, ... "the publisher, Barrington Stoke said they'd never had a serial killer book before (as it's not easy to make one work without turning the thing into a doorstop-sized lump of paper) but would I have a go?"

From the Blurb

They call him Sawbones:  a serial killer touring America, kidnapping young women.

The FBI are trying to catch him - but they're getting nowhere.

The latest victim is Laura Lones: 16, blonde, pretty ... and the daughter of one of New York's biggest gangsters.  Laura's dad wants revenge - and he knows just the guys to get it.

This time, Sawbones has picked on the wrong family.
