Title – The Resident
Author – David Jackson
Pages – 313
Publisher – Serpents Tail
Publication Date – July 2020

There is a serial killer on the run and he’s hiding in your house.

Thomas Brogan is a serial killer, with a trail of bodies in his wake and the police hot on his heels, it seems like Thomas has nowhere left ton hide. That is until he breaks into an abandoned house at the end of a terrace on a quiet street.

And when he climbs up into the loft, he realises that he can drop into all the other houses through the shared attic space.

That’s when the real fun begins. Because the one thing that Thomas enjoys even more than killing is playing games with his victims – the lonely old woman, the bickering couple, the tempting young newlyweds. And his new neighbours have more than enough dark secrets to make this game his best one yet….

Firstly I would like to thank NetGalley and the Publisher for my copy of this e-book, and blimey what a book it was. This book certainly kept me on the edge of my seat and was undoubtedly one I couldn’t put down.

The story followed Thomas Brogan a seriously deranged serial killer on the run from the law who finds the perfect hiding place for his voyeur fantasies.

Despite the majority of the book being placed in Brogans hiding place this does not stop this amazing plot from being pacey, but certainly makes the incredibly written characters stand out a lot more, being so character focused you get to know these characters on a much deeper level.

Every character in this book was well thought out, they each seemed 100% real and the majority of them were extremely likeable.

You had the lovely, lonely old lady who likes to see the good in everything, she reminded me so much of my nana, she was definitely one of my favourite characters and I also loved how she seemed to soften Brogan’s hard shell.

Then there was the passionate newlyweds, who at first I really took too, but the further and further into the story I got Martyn started to become an annoyance, and a jerk.

But the best character for me was not Brogan per se but the alter ego in his mind, he was evil but very witty with his remarks and I couldn’t help but smirk and chuckle every time he popped up.

If you love a good thriller with an evil minded main character with a soft gooey centre, this this is definitely the book for you.
