Joe Victim (2013)
language
English
series
3.82 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: An enjoyable follow-up to The Cleaner which continues the story of Joe Middleton from the exact second that The Cleaner ended. Probably deserves 3.5 stars as the character of Joe is just too annoying and whiney at times and the story falls into repetitiveness occasionally with c...

review 1: Although I did enjoy the main character, Theo Tate, I realized too late that this is actually the second or third book in a series, and I suspect my reading experience suffered from missing those first books. Also, the plot tried hard, but was full of too many "coincidences". In ...

review 1: This is Paul Cleave's first book; it is also the direct prequel to Joe Victim, his latest book which I read recently. Since I read the books the wrong way round I knew all the who-dunnits in this book but did not know the whys or hows. This did affect my enjoyment of the book a...

review 1: Damn. Just...damn. This book is just a whole lot of bad luck and terrible people.This definitely had me at the edge of my seat. My only beef was that I found it odd that it kept changing from first person with the main character and then to the second person perspective with Dete...

review 1: This is my 4th book by Cleave and I can't say enough about how pleased I am to have found this author. I started with his last (to date) book "Joe Victim", then went back and started at the beginning. This series is very unique in that they feature the same police department but ...

review 1: When I reviewed Collecting Cooper, I said that it was just about as perfect as a thriller could be. Well, I was wrong. The Laughterhouse is as perfect as a thriller can be! You gotta read this series! Although you can read each of Paul Cleave's books as stand alones, I recommend ...

review 1: not as good as The Cleaner, but still a great story with all Paul Cleave's usual gory bits. joe goes from being "slow" in the cleaner to "victim" in this one. I love how he's even convinced himself of his innocence. Yes sure Joe killed all those people, but as he keeps telling pe...
El coleccionista (2011)

English
series

review 1: I realised a few chapters in that I probably should have read Paul's previous novels but Collecting Cooper still works as a stand-alone book. CC is told from the POV of ex-cop Theodore Tate, former mental patient Adrian and Prof Cooper Riley and because of this it makes for a we...

review 1: Had no idea this was a series and will definitely get the previous ones. I loved the tone in which the book is written and I found the detective to be hilarious as hell. This one is about a demented person starting a "collection" of serial killers which consists of an actual murd...

review 1: Es el primer libro sobre psicópatas que leo, y me gustó muchísimo. Creo que Paul sabe como atraparte, inventar una buena historia y sobre todo comprender la mente de no solo un criminal, sino varios, y varios psicópatas. Este libro te sorprende a medida que lo vas leyendo y pensa...

review 1: After waiting for a couple of months I finally got Paul Cleave's first novel. I have read his other novels and was looking forward to this one. Right off the bat you can tell this was his first because it tends to linger a bit on the same scenes over and over. When he finally get...

review 1: Almost gave this 4 stars. The first half of this book was very quick reading, but the further I got into it I kept thinking how this person who was capable of such deeds was so oblivious of what was going on around him & it started to just drag on & I wanted it to be over. Also...

review 1: Joe Middleton works as a janitor at the Christchurch police station. Everyone believes his "Slow Joe" act and think he is mentally retarded; but he is far from that. He is actually one clever, sick and twisted serial killer known as the Christchurch Carver. He has 6 women under h...

review 1: When you read Paul Cleave's novels, you're thrown into the dark world of Christchurch, New Zealand, and its city of crime. In Blood Men, we're introduced to Edward Hunter. A typical family man who loses everything with a tainted bloodline. We enter his world and see how his world...

review 1: J'ai moins apprécié que "un employé modèle" du même auteur. malgré que l'histoire est bien écrite et attachante, il y a moins de suspens, moins de thriller, je m'attendais à découvrir un coup monté ou quelque chose dans le genre mais l'histoire s'est avérée aussi simple que ça et...

review 1: Received as an ARC from the publisher. Man oh Man, what a story! Theodore Tate is the poster child for the phrase "If it weren't for bad luck, he wouldn't have any luck at all!" He's like the cartoon character who has the constant raincloud over his head. But he's smart, and tha...

review 1: I received this book as a First Reads winner on Goodreads. Wow! This brilliant, dark, disturbing thriller that Paul Cleave has written! I HAVE to read his other books! I could not put this one down---I would tell myself that I would read a chapter and then stop, but when I got to...
