The Apostle Murders by Jim Laughter

Everyone has at least heard of the twelve apostles, fewer know how they died, only one has attempted to recreate them. That is what this story is based around one man has decided Christianity has become to lax and needs to return to belief by fear. So he has decided to recreate the murders of the apostles as closely as he can.

This is a gripping story with an interesting plot, and surprise twists. The story switches perspective from the cops chasing the killer to the killer himself, helping you understand both viewpoints.

My main question with the book was what made the killer begin this murdering rampage? It's never addressed very well and I'm curious why not.

This is a pretty graphic novel, if you know anything about the deaths of the apostles you know they are pretty gruesome and they are described very accurately. So if you aren't a fan of gore I'd avoid this book.

All in all it's a good book murder and suspense and a bit of Christianity thrown in. I recommend it to anyone who likes thrillers and also enjoys a touch of religion in their books.
