    As bad as this murder was - and it was bad - I knew it would also be explicable. Because, ultimately, they all are. famous last wordsis is a better-than-average crime novel. it's a british police procedural with psychological elements featuring detective inspector hicks, your typically confident investigator who is far enough along in his career that he's pretty sure he's seen it all and nothing can surprise him. his longtime partner, detective laura fellowes, thinks he's maybe a little too fond [...]

    Steve Mosby is an author that the whole world should know about. One of Britain's National Treasures. His books just blow my world away, each and every time, this one was no exception. Absolutely terrifying and ingenious work of fiction. So, what's the book about?Detective Inspector Andrew Hicks thinks he knows all about murder. However horrific the act, the reasons behind a crime are usually easy to explain. So when a woman is found bludgeoned to death, he suspects a crime of passion and attent [...]

    Right out of the gate, this one was different from many murder mystery/suspense/thrillers. The killer has qualities of both a mass murderer and a serial killer, which I found refreshing different. If you can say a book like this 'refreshing'. I loved it! Don't read this alone in the dark Usually when I read that on the 'dust cover', I think 'yea, right. Try me. This one hit the mark.Have you ever read a book that makes you feel the hairs on the back of your neck? I don't get it often. I did with [...]

    Detective Andrew Hicks and his partner, Laura Fellowes, are investigating a series of seemingly random and brutal killings. Hicks is the kind of cop who prides himself on always seeing the pattern to crimes, even if the reason seems ridiculous to others. This time, he can't find it. The murders appear to be totally random and a letter from the killer claims they are. He has to find the code somehow. At the same time, he is conflicted about the baby his wife is soon to have and his own past which [...]

    This is not your average murder mystery.To me,the story was ok,boring at first to be honest.Althou in some parts it was pretty good.This is character drivin,with the subject of domestic violence and how down through the years it can have devastating results,for instance,if a father beats his wife all the time,and has sons.ose sons might repeat the fathers abuse,and so on and so on.Frankly I wasn't going to finish this book but all I wanted to know,was,who the killer is.

    A seemingly straight forward police procedural opening, perhaps even a little slow, with the introduction of Detective Andy Hicks. He and his partner Detective Laura Fellowes are called out to a murder of a young woman. Hicks sees murder as a straight-forward process. Each murder has its own hallmarks, which can be placed in certain areas or 'rooms'. He immediately suspects a crime of passion, and concentrates on the woman's ex husband. Then, another body is found. And another. Suddenly, Hicks i [...]

    Steve Mosby ranks highly in my list of favourite crime authors having read all of his previous novels and ‘Black Flowers’ is one that I constantly recommend to crime readers. I can assure you that this, his latest, does not disappoint either!The key thing that sets Mosby apart, in my view, is his ability to avoid the obvious in his plotting so with each book you are immersed in a multi-stranded narrative which as a reader becomes more of a challenge as you seek to determine how these strands [...]

    This book starts with the interview of a young boy by police officers but this is a tantalising start; the nature of the incident being investigated isn’t revealed until much later.The main story follows a murder investigation which starts with a woman who is bludgeoned to death outside her home. Steve Mosby doesn’t stint on the horrors inflicted, making this a book to avoid by the squeamish, but if you have the stomach for it, and the underlying plot is outstanding, original and most import [...]

    Another day, another detective inspector. Steve Mosby has written several books (although sadly, as far as I can tell, only one as yet featuring Zoe Dolan, one of the DI queens of my heart), yet we only own two of his titles - how can this be? Mosby features a new DI in each book, and although I adore Zoe, this is still thrilling enough to get me emotionally invested in DI Andy Hicks so I have high hopes for his other books. There are a lot of the usual elements of crime fiction, especially that [...]

    Average dark thriller with a poor storyline Not a bad little thriller I happened to read as it was a recommendation by Graham Masterton. I have to say that the rather sadastic killings carried out by the central deranged character did not really seem possible. Although the characters and development of the plot was good the I found my attention drifting on a rather odd and impossible storyline.

    I think it's fair to say that Steve Mosby is rapidly turning into one of my favourite authors in this genre, perhaps in any genre, he's that good!!Here we meet DI Andy Hicks, a more than capable detective, who tends to think with a logical mind. In his opinion everything does and should make sense, there's a chain of events and a reason for everything. But as the bodies pile up in a matter of a few days he finds that his theories are all but disappearing. There is no logical explanation, rhyme o [...]

    A very good book that reads quickly, you'll be carried away by the rhythm, the story and the dialogues. The characters are well written, realistic and not caricatural. Hicks is the central character but he's highlighted by his partner who doesn't hesitate to bring him back to earth with her ironic remarks. He must revise his ways of thinking, he who has always believed (and for good reasons) that there's always a reason behind every crime, at least for the criminal. I liked seeing his path betwe [...]

    Overall I really enjoyed this book. As with any mystery novel the most important part, at least for me, is the mystery itself. And the mystery in this book works well. It isn’t something the reader can figure out ahead of time, you just don’t get enough information, but it is enjoyable to watch Hicks work through it. There are some red hearings and a nice, although not unforeseen, twist at the end of the book. As a mystery this The Murder Code is firing on all cylinders and worth the read.Th [...]

    The story took a little time to get into. There were a lot of characters and different storylines that made it a little confusing at times. The last third of the book was the best part. I loved the outcome of why the killings took place and how they came to be, very ingenious of the author. The final reveal/twist in the end was unexpected and a great surprise.

    I loved angst ridden troubled Detective Andy Hicks. His past haunts him. The crimes were nightmarish unspeakable. At times I wanted to stop reading but the story was so good I could not stop. The crimes were complicated and awful. They all led to a crazed disturbed man who didn't want the life he hadis book was totally addictive. I want more and more of this author!

    Jennifer
    What?!?!? I just finished the book and my head is still spinningis book had me guessing the entire time. I loved how the author brought everything together at the end, I will look out for more of his books.

    I don't have much to report on this one. It was pretty average.

    Sandy
    This is police procedural that fit snugly onto my "okay" shelf.The MC is DI Andrew Hicks, a cool & detached detective in an unnamed city who believes there's nothing that can't be solved through calm logic & statistics. The only thing that's rocking his world even slightly is the fact he's about to become a father. He never wanted kids (why will become evident) & his relationship with partner Rachel is on shaky ground.Then the murders start. They are violent, graphic and have Hicks & [...]

    Very deceptive title. I thought I would be reading a book that was a murder mystery with a little bit of intrigue ala Davinci Code. Codes played a very minimal part in the story and had nothing to do with the mystery at all. I was very disappointed in this book. I finished it, but Steve Mosby will be at the bottom of my authors to follow list.

    Detective Hicks is an excellent addition to crime fiction. He asks the right questions, isn't afraid to find the truth, and has a complete knowledge of criminal behavior. However his opponent has no recognizable MO. I love the composition of this! We see the exact step by step process of solving this series of murders. Any crime fiction fan sound check this out.

    I'm waffling between giving this two stars and four. Four because the writing was good and fast paced with pretty decent characters. Two for way too many coincidences (and having the protagonist ponder the nature of coincidences only makes it worse not better) and an ending that annoyed me no end because it only lets you know that the entire premise was a cheat. I guess I'll make it three.

    I did not finish reading this. It was way to boring for me. I don't usually ever quit reading, I will keep going until the end, but this was the second time I tried to read this and just could not see wasting the time on finishing.

    Jeanette
    Because I only got about a 1/3rd of the way in- take this 2 star with a grain of salt. But it was just too grizzly and nasty in deed, and too choppy in transition to go further. Characterizations were not bad, but too hard to find or relate to with any connection within the other muck for me.

    Joy
    I thought this was okay. I did find it to be predictable with the story line.

    3.75 starsFast moving and a clever plot keep one turning the pages on this one. However, there are a lot of extraneous red herrings, which is standard I guess, such as the cop's background, the cop's marriage, the cop's last failed case, not to mention the candle maker, etc. Also, the identity of the killer almost seems almost inexplicable. Certainly no one would guess, but there are so many questions that don't quite add up, at least in my addled brain. The endgame and where Andy the cop stumbl [...]

    Meh.Once again Mosby comes with way too many similar stories for his characters, completely defying probabilities and making it to hard to suspend my disbelief. (view spoiler)[ So the detective, the 2 killers and a witness, all had similar backgrounds with abusive fathers (and abusive in the same manner)? Abuse is unfortunately too frequent, I know but still is a tad much. Also, the tactic used by this killer is not new, it has been written many times before so that was another let down. And I s [...]

    Alex
    Ludicrous plot line, ridiculous amount of murders, full of gore and shock value. Against all my inner judgements I kind of liked it. Will not be rushing back for more of the same author though, one is enough.
