I was not the victim of sexual or physical abuse as a child. I was not a bedwetter, and I did not torture small animals. I am something far purer, I am a legacy. Grief is like that sometimes. Like water, it finds any opening, forces itself through any crack until it explodes, I have only a moment to realize what’s happening. Then things go dark. This is a crucial moment for those in our profession. It is the blooding. The point where you peer into the abyss for the first time,where you find out that the boogeyman really does exist and really has been hiding under the bed all those years.
Where you come face-to-face with real evil. We know this is where Leo will either recover or find a new line of work.
El Hombre Sombra by Cody McFadyen (4 star ratings)
Because the dark train is coming. It is a thing hard to describe. The train of life runs on the tracks of normality and reality. Its passengers are not perfect, but they do their best.
It’s the train that people like Jack Jr ride. The conductor is the monster you are chasing, and he has many guises. Sometimes, rarely, he can be a she. On the dark train, you see the conductor as he really is, underneath the fake smiles These killers I hunt are not quiet and smiling inside.
Every cell in their body is an unending scream. I can feel him, smell him. I need to be able to taste him, hear him.
I only hunt him. But I suspect my taste for blood is just as rich and strong. Why am I challenging you so directly? I challenge you because you deserve me.
You hunt the hunters, and, I feel certain, you have spent many years patting each other on the back. And so you deserve me. Because if these others you have hunted are shadows, I am darkness itself. Writers and directors so often seem dedicated to the idea that they must lay out a path of bread crumbs for their hero to follow.

View all 19 comments. Gory, brutal, horrifying and frightful to the extent of wanting to go to bed with the lights on.
I thought I spotted the killer pretty soon which surprised me as I am usually clueless. However, I’ve got distracted.
The killer had his own truth, nothing else mattered, he was detached, cold, clever, meticulous, calculating and had his own truth to justify all murders as if he was God. My personal taste needed something to give it a certain balance. View all 21 comments. This is the kind of story I loveunashamedly. A super tough female heroine, with a traumatized past, who has became the main target of a twisted serial killer’s bloody game that gives you lots of gore. I mean xombra, it’s a tale as old as time in this genre.
It’s been done to death, but when it’s done well? Who gives a fuck? Ell a wild, tense, dark and twisty ride. I have a hard time believing this is the first novel ever written by Cody McFadyen but that’s the line I’m being fed, so sure, ok, M This is the kind of story I loveunashamedly.
I have a hard time believing this is the first novel ever written by Cody McFadyen but that’s the line I’m being fed, so sure, ok, Mr McFadyen this is mcfaden first novel ever, riiiiggghhhttt. McFadyen infused the pages with psychological insight into the main character, Agent Smoky Barrett, and police procedural factoids that cut hobmre horror and evil with human qualities and a sense of reality.
It created a story that was really well rounded in so many ways.
The crimes were pretty dark, bloody and gory. The chase for the killers was fast paced and fun, with lots of procedural insight into serial killers and the people who catch them. My only real gripes with the books would be the Jack the Ripper line, which felt a little too easy as a plot device and the sense of timing The first part of book sets up Smoky and her past, her journey in recovery, and quite frankly, she’s fucked up. Nightmares, panic attacks, only 6 months has gone by since her family was murdered and she was tortured almost to death.
She’s right where you’d expect her to be emotionally, which is barely hanging on. And then, it seems, overnight, the death of her best friend spurs her into an unprecedented recovery and she’s back leading an FBI team and solving crimes and adopting children who are coming out of their own personal horror way to quickly.
Relationships are forged, things are wrapped up and life is moving on all within the span of a week or so. It was too fast, and I kept thinking, yeah, that wouldn’t happen.
Took me out of it just a little bit. Extra points for making me cry into my wine because of Leo’s dog, though. I hardly ever cry. I’m pretty much dead inside. By the time he was revealed I felt I didn’t care all that much, I just wanted to see him die and see Smoky win. I’m super excited that this is a series, though.
