    Sometimes a book comes along that is so clever that when you finish it you feel like you have been hit on the head with a brick, like in the cartoons you watched as a child. As you exhale a WOW and sit for a few minutes in the stunned awe. Replaying your favourite parts over and over...

    I really enjoyed The Tattoo Thief. I wasn?t sure what to expect going into it, but I found myself getting pulled into the story really quickly. I liked the tattoo angle, not least because I have a few myself, so it was interesting to read about. Marni Mullins is a tattoo artist, a...

    The Tattoo Thief is a unique police procedural with an interesting premise, albeit not one for the faint of heart and weak of stomach! The story has a gruesome opening and ? be warned ? is stomach-churning at times throughout. The killer?s narration is creepy and grim. From th...

    The Tattoo Thief is a pacy and addictive thriller that I read all in one go - it is dark and quite brutal with an excellent twisty plot and some intriguing characters. I liked Marni, tattoo artist, who gets caught up in a serial killer case despite her best efforts to stay out of it a...

    Een meedogenloze serial killer met maar één doel voor ogen : het verzamelen van tattoos. Een gecompliceerde zaak voor inspecteur Francis Sullivan. Samen met Marni Mullins (een tatoeëerder) probeert hij de moordenaar te stoppen. Een spannend en (voor sommigen) af en toe best gruwel...

    This book was on my radar for quite some time before I read it and once I did get my hands on a copy I just had to start it straight away. And I read it in one sitting as well as it is so completely and utterly gripping that I couldn?t bare to put it down! If, like me, you?re findi...

    he Tattoo Thief flicks between four characters. Marni a tattooist, Francis a DI, Rory, who works under Francis and the killer. The killer even though we get to meet them and see inside their dark and twisted mind, we don't actually know who it is. Obviously I was trying to guess who bu...

    This book will not be for everyone... it is dark, disturbing and graphic. If you can cope with that you will love this book! Lately there have been a lot of books with such similar stories that it has been hard to tell them apart. This one was absolutely an original story, and one that...

    Removing tattooed skin with the victim still alive is definitely an original and rather gruesome method for a killer. I can only wonder at where the author got their inspiration from but it made for a good read. I didn?t care much for any of the police officers and they had a bit of ...

    3.5 stars Il tatuatore č uno di quei libri che non so come giudicare. A lettura ultimata posso dire che la trama č interessante ed č proprio quello ad avermi attirata mentre la storia in sé č curata male e poco coinvolgente. In generale ho trovato il libro impersonale, i POV...

    I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. A well paced whodunnit with great characterisation - though sometimes a bit far-fetched. Marni's tattooing a guy called Steve in her hometown in Brighton, when she discovers a body in the bins outside...

    The Tattoo Thief was a bit of a disappointment. The premise is awesome. Tattoos and serial killers? Sign me the f up. However, I couldn't help but change my mind when I was halfway thorugh it. You can tell the author did her research and knew where she wanted this story to go, bu...

    Peccato, mi viene da dire per prima cosa. Perché l?idea che č alla base de ?Il tatuatore? non č male e l?autrice ha fatto davvero un ottimo lavoro di ricerca, per quanto riguarda la concia delle pelli e non solo, ma ci sono alcune leggerezze che, a mio avviso, guastano la fo...

    Libro que me ha enganchado bastante, pese a que no tenga el ritmo trepidante de otras novelas del género. Me han gustado los protagonistas, que he encontrado bien definidos y, sobre todo, bastante coherentes a lo largo de toda la obra. La forma de narración, en base a capítulos cort...
