Deliciously creepy, The Embalmer grabs you from the beginning, the contrast of modern Brighton working perfectly against the eerie inner world of an Egyptian-obsessed serial killer. Hold on tight as grisly kills mount up across the city, for an ending that won't disappoint.
The Embalmer is an excellent, fast-paced and well written and plotted novel! I did not want to put it down. Prepare to lose sleep
The Embalmer is another creepy and compulsive tale from Alison Belsham, author of the brilliantly terrifying The Tattoo Thief. Lock the doors and keep the lights on because we're back in Brighton with Marni Mullins and DI Sullivan, chasing down a serial killer with a penchant for mummification and ancient Egyptian immortality rites. Beautifully crafted and with writing so visual it leaps off the page, The Embalmer will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last page.
An engrossing, fast-paced serial killer story with multiple plots as tightly interwoven as the linen strips around a mummy!
Intriguing, compelling and chilling, I was hooked on The Embalmer from the first page. A brilliant mix of gothic and police procedural.
Pacy, cinematic, dark - a much needed dose of escapism.
