I was the girl who survived the Nothing Man.
Now I am the woman who is going to catch him.
You’ve just read the opening pages of the The Nothing Man, the true crime memoir Eve Black has written about her obsessive search for the man who killed her family nearly two decades ago.
Supermarket security guard Jim Doyle is reading it too and with each turn of the page his rage grows. Because Jim was is the Nothing Man.
The more Jim read, the more he realises how dangerously close Eve is getting to the truth. He knows she won’t give up until she finds him. He has no choice but to stop her first.
Wow! Once I started reading just a few words of The Nothing Man I became instantly hooked, I just couldn’t take my eyes of the pages it was just impossible to put down and I really mean just impossible to shut the book. Every disturbing detail seemed so real life.
I know The Nothing Man is going to be a huge best seller with everyone talking about it. With Catherine Ryan Howard’s hard work of thriller writing her books always has that effect on me as page turners.
The Nothing Man is an absolutely amazing thriller that mixes a fictional true crime with a tense psychological suspense. I just loved it and furthermore I know you are all going to be Seriously addicted to the criminal life of The Nothing Man.
The Nothing Man has two stories, but one killer.
The chapters are with one chapter by Eve Black and the next chapter by Jim Boyle that brings every chapter full of tension.
In The Nothing Man, my heart went out to poor little Eve at such a young age to witness her family’s murder.
As for the Nothing Man I hated him for murdering too many innocent people.
When Eve Black was just twelve years old a man broke into her home and murderd her mother, father and her younger seven year old sister, Anna. Eve only escaped as she went to use the bathroom and heard footsteps going to rooms that didn’t sound like her family and sensed something that made her stay in the bathroom until she thought it was safe to come out.
Eve’s family were the last family that the man attacked, but not the first. Eve Black’s family were the attackers fifth in two years. The horrific murders reminded me of Ted Bundy, how he went on to murder women without being caught. The Nothing Man attacked five victims with either physically assault, sexual assault violently and sexual assault or murder, all without leaving any trace of evidence.
Now Eve Black is at the age of thirty, she has decided to write a book The Nothing Man about her family’s murder and about his other crimes too. She can’t stop writing until she finds the killer.
Supermarket security guard Jim Boyle sees a woman in the supermarket carrying a book called The Nothing Man, he thought it has to be a fiction book. The book must be a new book released this week, he looked for the authors name Eve Black. The tile, The Nothing Man is frightening Jim, pointing at him and accusing him. The Nothing Man was his other name the newspapers had given him. The one on one knew belonged to him. Jim couldn’t help himself he had to know what author Eve Black had written about The Nothing Man. I couldn’t believe it Jim started to read The Nothing Man. He takes the book home and hides it from his wife and daughter to read it in secret. He can’t stop reading, because he is the killer.
When Jim finds out Eve Black is going to a book signing, he needs to go alone, but what Jim hasn’t planned is that someone else wants to go to the book signing too.
Eve Black makes a speech at her book signing. I was the girl who survived the Nothing Man. I am the woman who is going to find him.
I have to admit I didn’t see the twist adapting and what a surprise it was !
Every book with the author’s name Catherine Ryan Howard is a must read. Catherine Ryan Howard is one of the best thriller crime authors that I can get into very easily and I know every reader will enjoy Catherine Ryan Howard’ys work without stopping . And I’m honestly saying to everyone that the newest book The Nothing Man about a fictional true crime memoir that isat the centre of this novel is truly a really big must buy, must read.
I would like to say a huge thank you to Corvus fir sending me an early proof paperback to read and review.
