55 by James Delargy

Here is what the QBD crew thought…

This completely addictive crime thriller had me hooked from the start with an ending I did not expect! Set in a remote Western Australian town, two men present themselves to local police both claiming to have been kidnapped and tortured by each other.  Each claim they were to be number 55 killed by a serial killer and each with wounds and stories matching. Detectives have the task of working out who the killer is and who the victim is before time runs out and the killer strikes again. Highly recommend for lovers of Jane Harper or Chris Hammer. – Trish, QBD Bondi

Set in Western Australia across two timelines, we follow Sergeant Chandler Jenkins where he leads his small police team, who barely see any crime, until an injured Gabriel enters revealing a horrible tale of being held by a serial killer, Heath, who was set on making him victim 55. All isn’t what it seems, as Heath enters the station telling the same story, this time about Gabriel being the killer. Who is telling the truth, and who is hiding a secret? This thriller will leave you guessing right up until the last sentence! – Cassandra, QBD Traralgon

Police Sergeant Jenkins can crack down on a noise complaint. He can even break up the odd pub fight. But when two men stumble into his station accusing each other of the same unspeakable crime, it’s a race to uncover the truth before bodies start turning up in the bush. A high stakes Aussie Noir that will have you spinning theories until the last page, 55 definitely isn’t one you want to miss. – Peta, QBD Brisbane City
