The Nothing Man
Eve Black was the only survivor after her family was attacked and killed by the Nothing Man when she was twelve. Her family was the last of his victims, but he was never caught. Now, eighteen years later, in an attempt to move on with her life and find closure, she decides to write a book about him. Her hope is that the book will generate new interest in a case long gone cold and also in a way to provoke him because they have no way of catching him without a confession since he never left any evidence. The Nothing Man knows he’ll have to stop her and should never have let her live in the first place, a mistake he plans on rectifying soon.
This is probably one of the best books I ever read. I really enjoyed the fact that they tell you who the killer is from the first page and you are reading Eve’s book with him as he tries to discover how much she actually knows. You get to see him unravel with each new revelation as well as hear the story of each of his victims from Eve’s point of view. I don’t know why, but I absolutely loved the book within a book format and that you only ever hear from Eve when it’s written in her book. The author did a fantastic job, and if you are a fan of Meg Gardiner, which I am, you will love this book.
