The Nightmare Place by Steve Mosby

Summary (from Goodreads): Sometimes, there’s a thin line between love and hate. Or at least that’s one theory for DI Zoe Dolan, tracking the Creeper—a stalker who’s been breaking into women’s homes and attacking them. But the Creeper’s violence is escalating and there’s no pattern, no clue as to how he’s getting in, and no clue as to who’s next. Until Jane Webster gets a call to the helpline where she volunteers. It’s meant to be a confidential service and Jane is torn—it could be a hoaxer, but the soft voice at the end of the line has the ring of truth about it. He says he loves these women—but it’s a love that ends in blood. When Jane tells the police, it should be the lead that Zoe needs—but it only pulls her further into a case that is already taking her dangerously close to the past she’s never fully escaped. For Jane, Zoe and all the other young women of the city, suddenly nowhere is safe. Particularly their own bedroom at the dead of night…

Book Beginning: “For me, it’s the waste ground. It’s a real place, and although I haven’t been there in years, I dream about it often.” (pg. 1)

Page 56: “It was the kind of report that under different circumstances would likely have been brushed off by Dispatch. But in the current climate, we were encouraging everyone to be careful and check on their neighbours, and we have to take calls like this seriously. Especially because Sally Vickers was in her mid-twenties and lived alone.” (pg. 56)

Thoughts: I haven’t heard or read books from this author before so I am interested to see if I like it. It sounds like your typical crime novel that centres around police procedures, side characters and a creepy suspect. It’s gotten a lot of good reviews on good reads and is kind of giving me Golden State Killer vibes.

What are you currently reading? Does this book sound interesting to you?
