    After finishing this book, I rated it three stars. I had just browsed the glowing reviews of fellow GR members and fell pray to the idea that I should like the book more than I did. But the more I thought about it, the less comfortable I felt with my rating. I just didn't think this bo...

    I've found it particularly difficult to write a review for this one. Whenever I tried to transfer my thoughts to paper ( ok ipad ) I found that ( in my excitement) I seemed to be giving away some small detail that would possibly spoil it for other readers. The shock and horror that I p...

    Omg! Okay, there were some things I didn't like but overall, I loved it! I was not expecting the awesomeness and totally psychoticness of the killers up bringing! I didn't really give a rats ass about the police stuff. Half of their stuff was stupid anyway. But the kille...

    I just loved this book. It was so terrifying and horrifying. Wow, this book is dark and creepy in the most wonderful of ways. It was just fantastic. I have been waiting for this book for quite awhile. It was also so demented, disturbing and gory. J.D. Barker is vivid in his description...

    4.5 stars This has to be one of the most sick and twisted books I have ever read...I LOVED every moment! I?m going to keep this short because I don?t want to give anything away. A cat and mouse game ensues between a detective and serial killer when the killer gifts the dete...

    All I can say is...WOW! Inside the depraved mind of a serial killer. The cold, chilling evil. So what is it about serial killer books? Curious, human nature I suppose. This is my third one this month, and by far the most disturbing. Normally I avoid these but they seem to be ?c...

    This is a horrific serial killer thriller that will have you reading non stop till the end with its gripping narrative. Sam Porter is a Chicago detective dealing with a personal trauma that has him on leave. Then he gets a call from his partner, Brian Nash, to get himself pronto to a t...

    All I can say is WOW! and thank you so much to my dear friend, Kaceey for encouraging me to read this book! You only told me I don?t know how many times that I needed to read this book and now I know exactly why!!! 5 Thrilling Stars! THE FOURTH MONKEY (A 4MK Thriller, #1) by J.D. ...

    I absolutely loved this! Deliciously depraved & darkly deviant. A chilling serial killer, a novel so creepy & horrifying from the outset, from an exciting relatively unheard of author. Fabulously disturbing and the sickest thing I have ever read. If these statements don't pique...

    For me this is going to be a book hangover kind of book. What do I read next that will hold my attention as much as this one did? (I'm trying not to spoil anything in the book so my review is vague..like my mind.) You should all know that little saying with the monkeys..see no ev...

    THE FOUTH MONKEY (4MK) by talented author J.D. Barker is a dark and twisting novel; a combination of Se7en meets The Silence of the Lambs. Psychological thrillers are my favourite genre so was very much looking forward to reading it. As I started to read it, I was transported to a time...

    In this captivating series debut, J. D. Barker pulls the reader into the depths of a serial killer?s mind and how a spark in youth can erupt into a wildfire of indifference. Chicago Homicide Detective Sam Porter has been working to capture the Four Monkey Killer for over five years, ...

    4.5 Stars* (rounded up) Well, THAT was CREEPY. Hard to shake off even. And yet, I kept reading. And so will you. "The Fourth Monkey" Killer or 4MK, as he is coined, is a serial killer. Detectives Porter and Nash have been hunting him for a while. 4MK however, has other plans. But...

    WOW WOW JUST WOW! Seriously, I rarely, almost never giver thrillers a 5 star rating but WOW! This a book like no other, like one I haven't read in years! It has the same components as most: a serial killer, a team of cops, clues, and gore - if you cannot handle gore then stop now becau...

    I finished this book with a dropped jaw and wow, it was just excellent. The Fourth Monkey was certainly a dark, twisted and disturbing read and I absolutely loved this book. I was honestly so impressed by how clever the plot was, and the brilliant writing style had me completely im...

    4+ Stars. Excellent Finale......hehehe. Ok, try to puzzle this one out. The whole story encompasses only three days, but so much happens when a disturbed serial killer returns after ten years silent to unleash his evil on the innocent.....to punish the corrupt.Detective Samuel Porter o...

    Well, this is a weird one! First off, it starts with the death of the suspected serial killer. The detectives find a diary on his body. And it?s the diary that really provides a wild story. It details an event in his boyhood that explains why he is the way he is. Can we say sick? I...

    Fantastic! I now see why this was one of the contenders for best Mystery/Thriller for the year! I tried to go into this book with low expectations. I saw it everywhere last year and it?s my preferred genre. I just love suspense and police thrillers. Well, I was not disappointe...

    Now a Bestseller! #1 in Horror on UK Amazon! I have REVIEW COPIES available for bloggers and reviewers/readers - email me at booklovercatlady@gmail.com to request your copy. Join the team of #4MK fans worldwide! Absolutely freaking brilliant! I didn't want this book to end but what ...

    In this captivating series debut, J. D. Barker pulls the reader into the depths of a serial killer?s mind and how a spark in youth can erupt into a wildfire of indifference. Chicago Homicide Detective Sam Porter has been working to capture the Four Monkey Killer for over five years, ...

    4.5 Stars* (rounded up) Well, THAT was CREEPY. Hard to shake off even. And yet, I kept reading. And so will you. "The Fourth Monkey" Killer or 4MK, as he is coined, is a serial killer. Detectives Porter and Nash have been hunting him for a while. 4MK however, has other plans. But...

    WOW WOW JUST WOW! Seriously, I rarely, almost never giver thrillers a 5 star rating but WOW! This a book like no other, like one I haven't read in years! It has the same components as most: a serial killer, a team of cops, clues, and gore - if you cannot handle gore then stop now becau...

    I finished this book with a dropped jaw and wow, it was just excellent. The Fourth Monkey was certainly a dark, twisted and disturbing read and I absolutely loved this book. I was honestly so impressed by how clever the plot was, and the brilliant writing style had me completely im...

    4+ Stars. Excellent Finale......hehehe. Ok, try to puzzle this one out. The whole story encompasses only three days, but so much happens when a disturbed serial killer returns after ten years silent to unleash his evil on the innocent.....to punish the corrupt.Detective Samuel Porter o...

    What a ride this was! I was hooked from the start and with each turn of the page became more and more obsessed. I could NOT put this down! Top 5 things I loved: 1) The Diary chapters-amazingly creepy and disturbing, but captivating at the same time. I love when an author allow...

    Well, this is a weird one! First off, it starts with the death of the suspected serial killer. The detectives find a diary on his body. And it?s the diary that really provides a wild story. It details an event in his boyhood that explains why he is the way he is. Can we say sick? I...

    Fantastic! I now see why this was one of the contenders for best Mystery/Thriller for the year! I tried to go into this book with low expectations. I saw it everywhere last year and it?s my preferred genre. I just love suspense and police thrillers. Well, I was not disappointe...

    ?There is a fourth monkey, but nobody really knows about him,? I explained. Father nodded. ?The first three monkeys define the rules we should all live by, but it?s the fourth that carries the most importance.? ?Shizaru,? I said. ?His name is Shizaru.? ?He stands ...

    I must admit that this book is slightly derivative. There's only certain ways to write a gruesome story. But even if many authors are doing it, it's still a difficult job. Like Barcelona winning the treble. Sam Porter is deliberately a common down-to-earth name. He is no Holmes or P...

    The long and short of this is: A serial killer has been terrorizing Chicago for over five years. The serial killer has become known as the Fourth Monkey (See No evil, Speak No evil - you get the picture). Then one night, his body is found. Police on the scene believe that he was on his...

    I loved this. It is so beautifully twisted that I don?t even have a word for it. I banged through it, unable to look away, often freaking out slightly, J D Barker writes with such visceral reality that you just fall into it stuck between horrified and fascinated. So it is a serial...

    I enjoyed this book much more than I thought I would. It took some time for me to get fully engaged, but when the book took off, I couldn't peel my eyes away. We all know the three monkeys. Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil. There is a fourth monkey, as well. Do no evil. The...

    All I can say is WOW! and thank you so much to my dear friend, Kaceey for encouraging me to read this book! You only told me I don?t know how many times that I needed to read this book and now I know exactly why!!! 5 Thrilling Stars! THE FOURTH MONKEY (A 4MK Thriller, #1) by J.D. ...

    I absolutely loved this! Deliciously depraved & darkly deviant. A chilling serial killer, a novel so creepy & horrifying from the outset, from an exciting relatively unheard of author. Fabulously disturbing and the sickest thing I have ever read. If these statements don't pique...

    For me this is going to be a book hangover kind of book. What do I read next that will hold my attention as much as this one did? (I'm trying not to spoil anything in the book so my review is vague..like my mind.) You should all know that little saying with the monkeys..see no ev...

    THE FOUTH MONKEY (4MK) by talented author J.D. Barker is a dark and twisting novel; a combination of Se7en meets The Silence of the Lambs. Psychological thrillers are my favourite genre so was very much looking forward to reading it. As I started to read it, I was transported to a time...

    Now a Bestseller! #1 in Horror on UK Amazon! I have REVIEW COPIES available for bloggers and reviewers/readers - email me at booklovercatlady@gmail.com to request your copy. Join the team of #4MK fans worldwide! Absolutely freaking brilliant! I didn't want this book to end but what ...

    In this captivating series debut, J. D. Barker pulls the reader into the depths of a serial killer?s mind and how a spark in youth can erupt into a wildfire of indifference. Chicago Homicide Detective Sam Porter has been working to capture the Four Monkey Killer for over five years, ...

    4.5 Stars* (rounded up) Well, THAT was CREEPY. Hard to shake off even. And yet, I kept reading. And so will you. "The Fourth Monkey" Killer or 4MK, as he is coined, is a serial killer. Detectives Porter and Nash have been hunting him for a while. 4MK however, has other plans. But...

    WOW WOW JUST WOW! Seriously, I rarely, almost never giver thrillers a 5 star rating but WOW! This a book like no other, like one I haven't read in years! It has the same components as most: a serial killer, a team of cops, clues, and gore - if you cannot handle gore then stop now becau...

    I finished this book with a dropped jaw and wow, it was just excellent. The Fourth Monkey was certainly a dark, twisted and disturbing read and I absolutely loved this book. I was honestly so impressed by how clever the plot was, and the brilliant writing style had me completely im...

    4+ Stars. Excellent Finale......hehehe. Ok, try to puzzle this one out. The whole story encompasses only three days, but so much happens when a disturbed serial killer returns after ten years silent to unleash his evil on the innocent.....to punish the corrupt.Detective Samuel Porter o...

    What a ride this was! I was hooked from the start and with each turn of the page became more and more obsessed. I could NOT put this down! Top 5 things I loved: 1) The Diary chapters-amazingly creepy and disturbing, but captivating at the same time. I love when an author allow...

    Well, this is a weird one! First off, it starts with the death of the suspected serial killer. The detectives find a diary on his body. And it?s the diary that really provides a wild story. It details an event in his boyhood that explains why he is the way he is. Can we say sick? I...

    Fantastic! I now see why this was one of the contenders for best Mystery/Thriller for the year! I tried to go into this book with low expectations. I saw it everywhere last year and it?s my preferred genre. I just love suspense and police thrillers. Well, I was not disappointe...

    ?There is a fourth monkey, but nobody really knows about him,? I explained. Father nodded. ?The first three monkeys define the rules we should all live by, but it?s the fourth that carries the most importance.? ?Shizaru,? I said. ?His name is Shizaru.? ?He stands ...

    I must admit that this book is slightly derivative. There's only certain ways to write a gruesome story. But even if many authors are doing it, it's still a difficult job. Like Barcelona winning the treble. Sam Porter is deliberately a common down-to-earth name. He is no Holmes or P...

    The long and short of this is: A serial killer has been terrorizing Chicago for over five years. The serial killer has become known as the Fourth Monkey (See No evil, Speak No evil - you get the picture). Then one night, his body is found. Police on the scene believe that he was on his...

    There's a new serial killer in town and he is a doozie! Chicago is used to seeing dark things ..but no one has seen the likes of this killer. It all starts with the death of a man .... who was carrying a box with an ear to be delivered to a businessman. He jumps in front of a bus an...

    I just loved this book. It was so terrifying and horrifying. Wow, this book is dark and creepy in the most wonderful of ways. It was just fantastic. I have been waiting for this book for quite awhile. It was also so demented, disturbing and gory. J.D. Barker is vivid in his description...

    4.5 stars This has to be one of the most sick and twisted books I have ever read...I LOVED every moment! I?m going to keep this short because I don?t want to give anything away. A cat and mouse game ensues between a detective and serial killer when the killer gifts the dete...

    All I can say is...WOW! Inside the depraved mind of a serial killer. The cold, chilling evil. So what is it about serial killer books? Curious, human nature I suppose. This is my third one this month, and by far the most disturbing. Normally I avoid these but they seem to be ?c...

    I absolutely loved this! Deliciously depraved & darkly deviant. A chilling serial killer, a novel so creepy & horrifying from the outset, from an exciting relatively unheard of author. Fabulously disturbing and the sickest thing I have ever read. If these statements don't pique...

    For me this is going to be a book hangover kind of book. What do I read next that will hold my attention as much as this one did? (I'm trying not to spoil anything in the book so my review is vague..like my mind.) You should all know that little saying with the monkeys..see no ev...

    THE FOUTH MONKEY (4MK) by talented author J.D. Barker is a dark and twisting novel; a combination of Se7en meets The Silence of the Lambs. Psychological thrillers are my favourite genre so was very much looking forward to reading it. As I started to read it, I was transported to a time...

    Now a Bestseller! #1 in Horror on UK Amazon! I have REVIEW COPIES available for bloggers and reviewers/readers - email me at booklovercatlady@gmail.com to request your copy. Join the team of #4MK fans worldwide! Absolutely freaking brilliant! I didn't want this book to end but what ...

    In this captivating series debut, J. D. Barker pulls the reader into the depths of a serial killer?s mind and how a spark in youth can erupt into a wildfire of indifference. Chicago Homicide Detective Sam Porter has been working to capture the Four Monkey Killer for over five years, ...

    4.5 Stars* (rounded up) Well, THAT was CREEPY. Hard to shake off even. And yet, I kept reading. And so will you. "The Fourth Monkey" Killer or 4MK, as he is coined, is a serial killer. Detectives Porter and Nash have been hunting him for a while. 4MK however, has other plans. But...

    WOW WOW JUST WOW! Seriously, I rarely, almost never giver thrillers a 5 star rating but WOW! This a book like no other, like one I haven't read in years! It has the same components as most: a serial killer, a team of cops, clues, and gore - if you cannot handle gore then stop now becau...

    I finished this book with a dropped jaw and wow, it was just excellent. The Fourth Monkey was certainly a dark, twisted and disturbing read and I absolutely loved this book. I was honestly so impressed by how clever the plot was, and the brilliant writing style had me completely im...

    4+ Stars. Excellent Finale......hehehe. Ok, try to puzzle this one out. The whole story encompasses only three days, but so much happens when a disturbed serial killer returns after ten years silent to unleash his evil on the innocent.....to punish the corrupt.Detective Samuel Porter o...

    What a ride this was! I was hooked from the start and with each turn of the page became more and more obsessed. I could NOT put this down! Top 5 things I loved: 1) The Diary chapters-amazingly creepy and disturbing, but captivating at the same time. I love when an author allow...

    Well, this is a weird one! First off, it starts with the death of the suspected serial killer. The detectives find a diary on his body. And it?s the diary that really provides a wild story. It details an event in his boyhood that explains why he is the way he is. Can we say sick? I...

    Fantastic! I now see why this was one of the contenders for best Mystery/Thriller for the year! I tried to go into this book with low expectations. I saw it everywhere last year and it?s my preferred genre. I just love suspense and police thrillers. Well, I was not disappointe...

    ?There is a fourth monkey, but nobody really knows about him,? I explained. Father nodded. ?The first three monkeys define the rules we should all live by, but it?s the fourth that carries the most importance.? ?Shizaru,? I said. ?His name is Shizaru.? ?He stands ...

    I must admit that this book is slightly derivative. There's only certain ways to write a gruesome story. But even if many authors are doing it, it's still a difficult job. Like Barcelona winning the treble. Sam Porter is deliberately a common down-to-earth name. He is no Holmes or P...

    I loved this. It is so beautifully twisted that I don?t even have a word for it. I banged through it, unable to look away, often freaking out slightly, J D Barker writes with such visceral reality that you just fall into it stuck between horrified and fascinated. So it is a serial...

    I've found it particularly difficult to write a review for this one. Whenever I tried to transfer my thoughts to paper ( ok ipad ) I found that ( in my excitement) I seemed to be giving away some small detail that would possibly spoil it for other readers. The shock and horror that I p...

    Omg! Okay, there were some things I didn't like but overall, I loved it! I was not expecting the awesomeness and totally psychoticness of the killers up bringing! I didn't really give a rats ass about the police stuff. Half of their stuff was stupid anyway. But the kille...

    I just loved this book. It was so terrifying and horrifying. Wow, this book is dark and creepy in the most wonderful of ways. It was just fantastic. I have been waiting for this book for quite awhile. It was also so demented, disturbing and gory. J.D. Barker is vivid in his description...

    4.5 stars This has to be one of the most sick and twisted books I have ever read...I LOVED every moment! I?m going to keep this short because I don?t want to give anything away. A cat and mouse game ensues between a detective and serial killer when the killer gifts the dete...

    All I can say is...WOW! Inside the depraved mind of a serial killer. The cold, chilling evil. So what is it about serial killer books? Curious, human nature I suppose. This is my third one this month, and by far the most disturbing. Normally I avoid these but they seem to be ?c...

    This is a horrific serial killer thriller that will have you reading non stop till the end with its gripping narrative. Sam Porter is a Chicago detective dealing with a personal trauma that has him on leave. Then he gets a call from his partner, Brian Nash, to get himself pronto to a t...

    All I can say is WOW! and thank you so much to my dear friend, Kaceey for encouraging me to read this book! You only told me I don?t know how many times that I needed to read this book and now I know exactly why!!! 5 Thrilling Stars! THE FOURTH MONKEY (A 4MK Thriller, #1) by J.D. ...

    I absolutely loved this! Deliciously depraved & darkly deviant. A chilling serial killer, a novel so creepy & horrifying from the outset, from an exciting relatively unheard of author. Fabulously disturbing and the sickest thing I have ever read. If these statements don't pique...

    For me this is going to be a book hangover kind of book. What do I read next that will hold my attention as much as this one did? (I'm trying not to spoil anything in the book so my review is vague..like my mind.) You should all know that little saying with the monkeys..see no ev...

    THE FOUTH MONKEY (4MK) by talented author J.D. Barker is a dark and twisting novel; a combination of Se7en meets The Silence of the Lambs. Psychological thrillers are my favourite genre so was very much looking forward to reading it. As I started to read it, I was transported to a time...

    Now a Bestseller! #1 in Horror on UK Amazon! I have REVIEW COPIES available for bloggers and reviewers/readers - email me at booklovercatlady@gmail.com to request your copy. Join the team of #4MK fans worldwide! Absolutely freaking brilliant! I didn't want this book to end but what ...

    In this captivating series debut, J. D. Barker pulls the reader into the depths of a serial killer?s mind and how a spark in youth can erupt into a wildfire of indifference. Chicago Homicide Detective Sam Porter has been working to capture the Four Monkey Killer for over five years, ...

    4.5 Stars* (rounded up) Well, THAT was CREEPY. Hard to shake off even. And yet, I kept reading. And so will you. "The Fourth Monkey" Killer or 4MK, as he is coined, is a serial killer. Detectives Porter and Nash have been hunting him for a while. 4MK however, has other plans. But...

    WOW WOW JUST WOW! Seriously, I rarely, almost never giver thrillers a 5 star rating but WOW! This a book like no other, like one I haven't read in years! It has the same components as most: a serial killer, a team of cops, clues, and gore - if you cannot handle gore then stop now becau...

    I finished this book with a dropped jaw and wow, it was just excellent. The Fourth Monkey was certainly a dark, twisted and disturbing read and I absolutely loved this book. I was honestly so impressed by how clever the plot was, and the brilliant writing style had me completely im...
