I Am The Night by Ethan Cross - Review

I Am The Night by Ethan Cross - 4/5 ★★★★

Marcus Williams and Francis Ackerman Jr. are both killers. But while Williams is tortured by the deaths he has caused, Ackerman takes pleasure in his murders.

Williams is a former New York City homicide detective.

Ackerman is a serial killer.

And both men are about to become unwilling pawns in a conspiracy that reaches to the highest levels of US government. They will be plunged deep into a hellish underworld of murderers and killers. They will find that there is more that connects them than divides them...and that their lives depend on it.

The book opens strong with a murder which grips you right from the beginning. We then learn that the murderer is Francis Ackerman Jr, a well known serial killer. We follow a few of his kills and also the story of Marcus Williams, an homicide detective who has recently lost his job. Both of these men are more similar than they seem.

There is so much that goes on in this book and it is full of action. It is a proper cat and mouse chase and there is never a dull moment. I could definitely see it as a horror/action movie. Just when you think you are at the crux of the action, something else happens that leaves you in awe. It is really well written and everything comes around full circle.

This is the first book in the Ackerman series and it is a great introduction to him. We are given a deep backstory into the complexities and intricacies of his mind and why he kills. Most thrillers I read are series' based on the police officers hunting the killers but it is interesting to see it from the other side. I will definitely be picking up the rest of the books in series!

Thank you to Aries Fiction for inviting me to view an eBook copy for review.
