THE CUTTING ROOM
By Ashley Dyer
“The Cutting Room” is a well-written, complex, and harrowing tale that will keep you on the edge of your seat trying to identify a narcissistic serial killer. Margaret Murphy and Helen Pepper, who write as a team under the name Ashley Dyer, have constructed another intriguing police procedural that is full of tension and misdirection. There’s enough of Edgar Allan Poe, Peter James, and Michael Connelly in “The Cutting Room” to make every mystery reader’s heart beat faster. Highly recommended.
