The Pvritan by Birgitte Margen is a thriller with a touch of horror thrown in. Two bodies – a man with his eyes gone and his skin carved into the wings of a demon and a young girl in ice, her skin carved to look like angels wings. A serial killer dubbed The Wing-Maker is on the hunt and its down to Detectives Marti Zucco and Neil Cavanagh to stop him. The psychopathic killer has left clues that will lead the pair into the dark underworld, into a world of sexual perversion, into Hell itself. As the body count climbs, Marti finds her faith sorely tested. Can she and her partner take down The Wing-Maker before another victim takes flight? What’s the connection between the victims? And where does a 16th-century Bible fit into all of this?

The Pvritan by Birgitte Margen is a gripping story, one you won't want to put down as sheer terror grips you on every page. This story has been compared to those of Thomas Harris and Hannibal Lecter and the comparison is well-deserved. This is a terrifying serial killer story that will haunt you long after you turn the last page. Birgitte Margen has a way of drawing you into the story gradually until you are so deep in it, you are left with no choice but to continue. The descriptions will bring it all to horrifying life as you place yourself in the detectives' shoes and try to find the murderer. This is a dark tale, full of action, and fast-paced with realistic characters, a tale that drags you deep into the mind of a serial killer. Thrilling book; if you love Harris’s work, you will love this.
