About the Book-The Night Stalker

An unidentified female body is brought into the Los Angeles County morgue. The cause of death is still unclear. Her body bares no marks; except for the fact that her most intimate parts have been stitched shut. But what shocks the pathologist the most is that the killer had left something inside her. Something so monstrous Detective Robert Hunter, of the Los Angeles Homicide Special Section, has to be pulled off a different case to take over the investigation.
Within days a new body surfaces. Like the previous victim, she’s also been stitched shut and something has been left inside her. Something as ingenious as it is grotesque. And the killer isn’t done yet, not by a long shot.

When his inquiry collides with a missing persons’ case being investigated by the attractive, razor-sharp Whitney Meyers, Hunter suspects the killer might be keeping several women hostage. Soon Robert finds himself on the hunt for a murderer who is much more monstrous than he ever could have expected; a predator whose past hides a terrible secret, and who won’t stop until each of his victims has brought forth the awful truth

Goodreads Page

Life isn’t meant for us to go through it on our own. We all need help from time to time. No matter how strong or tough we think we are. A person alone just can’t deal with certain life situations. Especially not when you’re only ten years old.

Our Review of The Night Stalker

Continuing with the lady luck’s blessings, I struck gold with the third book too in the series. Usually, when the book starts catching the wave, each book seems to struggle to keep up the charm and pace. Usually, it gets beaten by its own prequel. Come to this series, and I am so far seeing each book in the series excelling one another. The battle for being the absolute horrifying is still on and book number 3 in the Robert Hunter series is not far behind.

The night stalker undoubtedly opens to an epic and horror-filled crime scene and then the saga continues. A chase against time and a crooked mind, all before the next victim drops dead and starts spreading terror. The book has maintained everything promised and delivered by the previous books and in fact, it is sprucing things up as there is a new captain in the house. If the earlier one was a favourite, this new character will blow your mind.

As I have mentioned in the previous two books and will mention on and on in the coming books, the series combines some of the most horrifying crimes you could imagine. So you know what that means? Stay away if blood makes you faint or a knife scares you. One of the things that I love most about the book and series, in general, is its aptitude for detailing. I mean one has to have a really powerful mind or some seriously messed up visualisation ability to get so many details in pristine form. Like to be able to even sketch out the trajectory of blood and wounds and marks take some pretty wild observation. I am scared to even think about where the inspiration comes from. Not that our world lack any.


The Night stalker can be read as a standalone and that makes it even more lucrative. Any book in the series can be read as a standalone and every book comes with its background and essential information. The only thing you need, to pick up these books is a strong stomach and mind. Hold on because it is going to be one bloody ride but worth one.
