So this book does start out by telling you who the Butcher is. Which kinda sucks. But you also get to read from his point of view, being a serial killer. But there were flaws. Like the main characters were so frikken selfish it was hard to not roll your eyes. Also some things that were suppose to be the surprise part, were very obvious to me. 3/5

Mixed feelings with this book. You know who The Butcher is just in the first chapter but the story was interesting how the author was building this character. However, some actions were so unrealistic and some were too predictable. But I liked the writing style as a thriller🤷🏽‍♀️. I can‘t say almost anything without spoil the story. 3⭐️

Told you who the killer was very early into the book which takes some gusto but it does pay off! Many books do this and I like it cause while the “good guys” hunt the antagonist we also get to watch the antagonist as he does what he does

This book was a hot mess. It straight up tells you who the Butcher is in the second chapter....who does that!?
