Cheri Reviews The Nothing Man by Catherine Ryan Howard

The Nothing Man by Catherine Ryan Howard

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Going with a rounded up 4.5

This is my first Catherine Ryan Howard novel but it won’t be the last.

I was honestly surprised by how quickly I became engrossed in this book. The premise, the lone survivor of a serial killer’s attack on her family wrote a book about her experience while the never-caught killer reads it, seemed very original to me.

I was taken in by both story lines and was happy to be in either place, which doesn’t always happen with split POV books. Although, the POV of the survivor is completely contained within the killer’s reading of the book and it worked really well.

The writing style of the author and the plot was great. I definitely recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys a good murder/thriller book. I listened to the audiobook and thought the two narrators (one for the survivor and one for the killer) did a wonderful job. That’s always a bonus!

Big thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for providing a copy of this really well done book.
