Really fascinating! ( )

If you like creepy historical fiction, detective thrillers involving serial killers and psychological suspense then this book will not disappoint. I could not stop reading it. Horrifying, intense and really well done. Read this book! I’m already thinking about the possible casting choices for the movie that undoubtedly will be amazing. ( )

Dark, creepy and filled with surprises!

This is far from the typical books I normally choose and at times found it a bit too dark for my taste. Fortunately I stuck with it and was glad. Since the story takes place in Eastern Europe in the mid-1930s, the rise of the Nazi nation adds an unusual element. The author draws a connection between the devil and the antisemitism the Germans embraced steering the reader in that direction. What happens later in the book puts this to rest in a deeply sardonic manner. Since a large number of my GR friends enjoy crime, mystery and horror, this book is perfect! ( )

I enjoyed this book. Slow to start but quickly picked up pace. Was completely surprised by the twist especially given that the book made you disbelieve accounts you were being given. However a few things bothered me. 1) how did Judita get the tower door open when it had been locked previously and she needed a key and 2) what information could you even trust given the narrator’s memory is unreliable-what was real and what was not? Otherwise very compelling story. I really liked the final bit of the book that tied everything together.

The Devil Aspect is such a delicious thriller. A story about psychopaths and a serial killer on the loose. What's not to like? The time period in this book also adds much to the story since there is a big growing unease in Czechoslovakia and also burgeoning xenophobia. And now there is a serial killer loose as well. Amides all this is Dr. Viktor Kosárek taking up his new position as a psychiatrist for the so-called "Devil's Six". Six really nasty and dangerous psychopaths.

This book was very fascinating to read, and of course, a bit bleak since the theme of the book is pretty dark. During the book's progress do we get to know more about "Devil's Six" as Viktor Kosárek is trying to unlock their secrets. We also follow the police investigation in the hunt for the serial killer known as "Leather Apron". Kosárek himself gets involved in the case because of his job. There were moments closer to the end when I was starting to wonder how it would all end. The serial killer case seems to be near its ending and I was unsure how it all would end up at the castle with all the psychopaths. It's here something brilliant happens. Something that I did not expect, at all! A twist that really makes me see past events in the book in a different way. I just have to say wow! That ending is so fabulous. This is definitely a thriller I recommend if you want to be astonished!

I want to thank the publisher for providing me with a free copy through NetGalley for an honest review! ( )
