Stuart Davies Author of Saxon

Paul Saxon, the level-headed commander of an elite serial killer detection squad and his loyal partner Detective Sergeant Guy “Nosey” Parker are sent to the village of Sewel Mill, near Brighton on the south coast of England to catch a devious killer who has mastered the ability to commit murder without leaving forensic evidence. Several men are murdered and just when Saxon believes a pattern is emerging, the killer changes his strategy, which is almost unheard of with serial killers. He starts to play games with Saxon, sending him riddles to unravel with the expectation he won’t. When Saxon proves a worthy adversary, the killer turns the tables on Saxon threatening those close to him. Saxon, continually struggling to come to terms with the murder of his father and stressed by his recent separation from his wife, starts to think the unthinkable – the only way to catch the killer is unthinkable…let him kill again. With no solid leads to go on, what else can he do? This is a multifaceted tale with red herrings and blind alleys that will leave the reader wishing there were more pages to turn after they’re through…and there will be.

5.0 out of 5 starsItching for the release of Book 2

I really enjoyed this murder mystery. Davies did a great job of introducing Saxon, his protagonist/detective. There is a lot of good description interspersed throughout the novel and the action kept me itching for more. I generally read a couple hours every night right before I go the sleep, and I couldn’t wait to get into bed and find out more with this novel. You’ve heard of page-turners? This is the real deal. I’m anxious for Mr. Davies to release the next in this series. I think Daniel Craig would be a good fit for Saxon in the movie version – which is sure to come soon!

A few pages into Saxon by Stuart Davies and you find it hard to believe that this is the author’s first novel. Built like a true mystery, it has you looking for evidence as you read, hoping you can piece together the clues before the real evidence comes out. Davies builds his characters well – and there are lots of them. But he shows you enough of the lives of the main characters to show you why they think the way they do and their actions are consistent with their personality. 3/4 of the way into the novel, i could not put it down. I am looking forward to Book 2… and a3 and 4….

Davies grabs the reader quickly into a world of gruesome murder. Paul Saxon is always behind the killer until mistakes are made. Don’t let the long cast of characters discourage you as Davies will tightly intertwine their stories. Masterful writing, characterizations, and plot. Well done!

4.0 out of 5 starsIngenious plot
ByC A Mathewson August 9, 2014
Format: Paperback
Commander Paul Saxon, leader of a specialist serial killer detection squad, is called upon to investigate an ever-growing number of seemingly random killings which might, or might not, be the work of a single perpetrator. With emotional troubles of his own, Saxon could be forgiven for losing his grip on the gruesome twists and turns he encounters, but his love of the job and the support of his assistant, Detective Sergeant Parker, sees him through to a thrilling finale. This book has a cinematic quality, the camera shifting from one vivid scene to another as the story unfolds. Add to this a strong plot and a broad cast of characters, and you have a compelling page-turner with more than a touch of class.
