Serial killer - copycat - London - Hannibal Lector-ish. Fast paced. Focuses on psych of detective on the case and the serial killer. Fabulous. ( )

Detective Inspector Anjelica Henley caught Peter Olivier, aka The Jigsaw Man, 2 years earlier, but not before he injured her. She has been on desk duty after suffering PTSD s as a result. But now, dismembered bodies are being found around London, and Anjelica fears that someone is copying the heinous acts of The Jigsaw Man. Anjelica has to come to terms with her fears and anxiety of the Jigsaw Man to solve this case.
I loved Anjelica, and how she is a flawed character. I loved the uncertainty of the ending and can’t wait for the next installment. This novel is not for the faint hearted as it is a bit gory at times, but I really enjoyed it. ( )

Nadine Matheson's debut crime novel is The Jigsaw Man. That perfectly creepy cover hints at what's hiding inside...

Detective Inspector Anjelica Henley is just back to active duty after surviving an attack from serial killer Peter Olivier. He's behind bars in a maximum security prison. But the case she's called to seems to mimic his crimes - the dismembering of his victims. The brand he left on his victims is there as well. Does he have an acolyte on the outside? A copycat?

What a great lead character Matheson has created. I liked Anjelica from the get go. She's highly intelligent, driven, respected, but flawed as well. Although the physical wounds from Olivier's attack have healed, she's still emotionally scarred and her personal life is a bit of a mess. Matheson has also built a solid cast of supporting players in the Serial Crimes Unit. I was quite drawn to trainee DC Salim Ramouter. And I heartily disliked Anjelica's husband and mother in law.

In the beginning I thought this was a second book for this crew, but it was indeed the first. Matheson does a great job building the characters, their history and their relationships in such a way that they all felt quite established already. They're a crew that work the dark cases.

The plot isn't straight forward, taking a number of turns that kept me guessing. There are quite a few suspects, victims and aliases, so listen carefully to keep track of everyone. The police procedures hit all the right notes and are believable. My pet peeve is convenient clues that are dropped in a protagonist's lap. Not the case in The Jigsaw Man - Henley and her team have to work to put the pieces together. (Yeah, that one was on purpose!)

Gentle readers, this one may not be for you as the crimes are quite brutal and graphic. (Think Silence of the Lambs) Matheson is herself a criminal defense attorney and the plot and characters definitely benefit from this inside knowledge. I've got my fingers crossed that Matheson is hard at work on another Anjelica Henley book! (The Jigsaw Man has also been optioned for television.) ( )

More than the identity of a copycat serial killer, The Jigsaw Man, the debut novel by criminal attorney Nadine Matheson, is about the psychological and personal journey of the inspector and about the almost competitive relationship between her and the original jigsaw killer. These facets keep me turning the pages until the very gruesome ending that clearly indicates more to come. Given that this is a debut novel, I look forward to seeing what the author's style develops into.

This book held promise. It is the type of book that I usually read. In the beginning, I was hooked. What an opening first chapter. People in various locations find body parts. My interest stayed for about six chapters in. Then my interest left me for this book.

This is because it moved at a very slow, slow pace. It seemed there was more talking then progression with the story. In fact, I have to admit that despite me trying to stick with this book that I actually jumped forward to the last several chapters of the book. Now, this is where the pacing was much better and I was very interested again in what I was reading. If the overall vibe of the story was like the beginning and ending mixed together; my feelings would have changed about this book. ( )
