I just wanted to share this brilliant book that I have just finished reading, I'm quite shocked that there isn't already a thread about it as it seems so popular with friends of mine and has fab reviews on Amazon.
Based in the County Durham area, it is about a serial killer who appears to be copying past serial killers, and the race to catch him before he kills again. I was hooked from beginning to end, it can be very graphic in parts and the first few chapters is written from the first victims point of view whilst the killing is taking place. It is not for the faint hearted, but I just couldn't put it down! Highly recommended smile

Hi, my name's Gary Copeland, author of The Killer Within, and I have just come across this site via a search engine when looking into something regarding my book.
I would just like to offer my thanks to Ash for the kind words, and to whoever else may have bought my book. It is truly appreciated.
It is also very surprising and apt to find my book mentioned on this site as the central plot of my book revolves around mothers, with a few surprising twists. But please be warned, there are some scenes which I myself found extremely uncomfortable to write, so please, if you are considering reading it, check out the reviews on Amazon first before deciding whether it would suit your tastes.
To those of you who may decide to proceed, this is my first book, and not to be confused with other works by an author of the same name. (I'll have to use a pseudonym for the follow up)
Many thanks to you all, and I'd be grateful of any reviews and feedback which may help me to acquire a mainstream publisher, and thus;- make my book more widely available.
Sincerely, Gary.

Let me know what you think, I was hooked!

Read it in 2 days...thought it was good.
Not as graphic as I thought it would be (maybe I've read so many psychological thrillers I'm hardened!)
The ending reminded me of another book and I can't think which one.
