wow new

Waiting On Wednesday was a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the SpineEach Wednesday you got to highlight a book that you were really looking forward to. Unfortunately, the original creator is no longer able to host the meme and it has now linked up with Can’t Wait Wednesday over at Wishful Endings.

This week I’ve chosen:

The Devil Aspect by Craig Russell.


Six confined psychopaths. A killer on the loose.

1935. As Europe prepares itself for a calamitous war, six homicidal lunatics – the so-called ‘Devil’s Six’ – are confined in a remote castle asylum in rural Czechoslovakia. Each patient has their own dark story to tell and Dr Viktor Kosárek, a young psychiatrist using revolutionary techniques, is tasked with unlocking their murderous secrets.

At the same time, a terrifying killer known as ‘Leather Apron’ is butchering victims across Prague. Successfully eluding capture, it would seem his depraved crimes are committed by the Devil himself.

Maybe they are… and what links him with the insane inmates of the Castle of the Eagles?

Only the Devil knows. And it is up to Viktor to find out.

Holy shit! Did you read that blurb?! Be still my beating darkened grim loving heart! This book sounds absolutely awesome! 

The Devil Aspect is published by Constable and released on March 7th, 2019 (so, yeah, not long now). 🙂

  1. Think im the only one who didn’t love this book. Think i had very high expectations after the blurb and whilst a good read, I didn’t love it. Will be interested to see what you think.
