About the Book- The Death Sculptor

A student nurse has the shock of her life when she discovers her patient, prosecutor Derek Nicholson, brutally murdered in his bed. The act seems senseless – Nicholson was terminally ill with only weeks to live. But what most shocks Detective Robert Hunter is the calling card the killer left behind.

Our Review of The Death Sculptor

From the entire Robert Hunter Series, I think this book would never leave my brain. The whole freaking theme of the book is how the killer creates sculptures from the murder victim’s body parts. Can it be crazier than that? My brain was sending out massive threat signals with everything that I was reading in the book. What even jolted me to the core was the revelation of the killer and trying to piece together everything that happened in the book and then tying it to the ultimate revelation. The Death Sculptor will follow my previous opinion of the series. Approach with caution. The book comes with a huge pile of triggers and gore.

I know I am being a repetitive bird when I saw that the book just boggles me with its attention to its details and how much the plot plays with its readers. My whole reaction towards the book was, how does the author pull it off? what does it mean if the author is so scarily good with the plot and the details? I am scared to even ask and learn what his research would have been like. I am scared to even think about the whole mind cape of the author. But who cares if it is bringing out such a mind-blowing read. This is also a testament to the twisted mind that I possess too 😛 

So let us come back to the book. The Death Sculptor is the fourth book in the series and somehow while I forgot about what exactly happened in the prequels, the whole sculptor thing had been staying rent-free in my head ever since I read this book. The series follows all its charms from its previous ones. The duo of Hunter and Garcia is magical. I love how the book takes in the personal life of the central characters along with the main plot. The beauty lies in the fact that this has been done in an appropriate ratio without overloading or overshadowing the main plot.


In conclusion, I would say that if you could stomach some gore and bloodied scenes then this series is amazing. The only thing, I keep repeating is that the book is not for everybody’s consumption but those who do will agree that the plot has magic to it.
