Review: The Fourth Monkey

The Fourth Monkey The Fourth Monkey by J.D. Barker
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was one of the books which I got after my friend and Colleague Mahi raved about this thriller and trusting her taste after all she is mad about thriller and psycho books and was she right or what. The story moves between different viewpoints and short chapters really push the pace and story forward in a breezing manner.

The Fourth Monkey is supposed to the next character from Gandhiji's 3 Monkeys which tells us 'Do No Evil' and this twisted serial killer abducts people and as per ode to first monkey and it's message 'Hear No Evil' he sends an ear then 'See No Evil' follows as the eye balls, third message 'Speak No Evil' gets you the tongue and the last message result in the dead body being discovered. Nobody knows the first thing about the killer. But then a person commits suicide in front of a city bus and everything found on him confirms that he was the 4MK killer and police finds a diary on the dead body which then runs forward as a perspective too.

The story with police was okay but frustrating as they can't seem to get anywhere but the diary was wonderful. It was a nice little thriller which you would also enjoy if you are a fan of the genre. I loved the pace of the story and also the fact that nothing was clear for a very long time and even when you come to know few things many things still remain clouded.

So if you are looking for a thriller and even if you are not then just pick this beauty and then just Keep on Reading.
