The Kult by Shaun Jeffrey (ebook review)

People are predictable. That’s what makes them easy to kill.

Detective Chief Inspector Prosper Snow is in charge of an investigation into a serial killer called The Oracle who turns his victims into macabre works of art. But Prosper harbours a dark secret of his own. He and his old school friends were members of a group called The Kult who made a pact to dish out their own form of vengeance on bullies. Now a member of the group puts their friendship to the test when he makes a far darker request: that they murder someone that raped his wife.

To get away with murder, the friends decide to blame it on The Oracle, but events take a chilling turn when the instigator turns up dead, his body fashioned into a disturbing work of art. Now, one by one, the members of The Kult are being hunted down.

Just when Prosper thinks things can’t get any worse, his wife is kidnapped and he knows that if he goes to his colleagues for help, he risks his dark deeds being unearthed. If he doesn't, he risks losing all that he holds dear.

My Review
I loved this book. Very well written and I was hooked. I ended up going to be later than I want because I couldn't put this book down.If you are into gory and  terrifying thrillers  than this is a good book for you. Shaun Jeffrey is a awesome writer  and  is now one of my favourite authors.

Also check out Shaun Jeffrey's website
I give this 5 out of 5 

By the way, The Kult was filmed last year by an independent production company. I hope I get the chance to see this movie.
