Review: The Fourth Monkey by J.D. Barker

May 21, 2018

For over five years, the Four Monkey Killer has terrorized the residents of Chicago. When his body is found, the police quickly realize he was on his way to deliver one final message, one which proves he has taken another victim who may still be alive.


As the lead investigator on the 4MK task force, Detective Sam Porter knows even in death, the killer is far from finished. When he discovers a personal diary in the jacket pocket of the body, Porter finds himself caught up in the mind of a psychopath, unraveling a twisted history in hopes of finding one last girl, all while struggling with personal demons of his own.


With only a handful of clues, the elusive killer’s identity remains a mystery. Time is running out and the Four Monkey Killer taunts from beyond the grave in this masterfully written fast-paced thriller.

**** 4 Star Review ****


Oh... what did I read? I can't believe I waited so long to pick this one up. Everyone kept telling me I needed to read it. Now, I am telling everyone else that you need to read it.


The four monkeys... Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil, and do no evil. This book surrounds a revenge serial killer who is diabolical and depraved. I loved every second of this book.


On the hunt... but who is on the hunt? I was on the edge of my seat throughout this book, and I couldn't stop reading. 


The detectives in this story are a great band of characters. Their chemistry and wit was an added benefit to this story. Between their relentless hunt and their close relationships, this book never seemed to lag at any given point.


I am a sucker for dark and twisted. This one has all of those characteristics that make my dark heart tingle. I was bouncing in my seat, excited to finally get a deliciously messed up book. I haven't read one like this in a while.


Before I let you go, let's talk about Barker's writing itself. Oh my! So vivid without being overly descriptive, but just enough that I could see the whole book play out in my head in detail. He definitely knows how to tell a great twisted, haunting, dark, and devious story!
