It was insistent, like a pulse in my head om the living

It was insistent, like a pulse in my head om the living. Perhaps I would be able to forget in time, but I thought it would require giving up more than I could afford to lose: cutting so much of myself away that there was nothing left worth keeping. And I remembered: if she was still alive, I would have done anything - anything at all - to go to her. It was just before I watched the video of Marie's death.

I love the mind of Steve Mosby.

Alex Connor is running away from life  . I love the mind of Steve Mosby. This book is like a mash up of a really good crime novel with a touch of intelligent horror weaved through, enough to keep you on tender hooks, and wanting to keep the bedside light on. The ending of this book just I was left suitably disturbed after putting this book down, it got so dark I felt like I needed to go and run in a field of daisies in a sunny place somewhere. Absolutely stunning book, terrifying, mind bending, twisted, brilliant, brilliant, brilliant.

Sarah Pepper's body is missing after her boyfriend killed her in a drunken rage.

Select Format: Paperback. ISBN13:9781409188773.

Steve Mosby lives and works in Leeds. His novels have been translated widely and longlisted for the Theakstons Crime Novel of the Year Award. He is also a winner of the CWA Dagger in the Library.

Sarah Pepper is dead: killed by her boyfriend in a drunken rage. He's confessed, but can't remember what happened afterwards, only that he went for a long drive to dump her body. The police appeal to the public for help finding Sarah's remains. They're looking for a field with a wooden gate, an empty bottle of vodka by the roadside. She will be partly concealed beneath a hedge...Shocked by the news, Alex Connor travels halfway round the world. He's coming home determined to say goodbye to Sarah, the friend who helped him through his darkest days. When he arrives, however, he finds only a mystery. The field has been located, but using the information provided by the police, someone else has got there first. Sarah's body has been taken.On the other side of the country, a killer is preying on young women. When a girl called Rebecca Wingate vanishes, Detective Paul Kearney knows they only have a week to find her - before her body turns up, drained slowly and completely of blood. Kearney seemingly gets a break when a man is caught and confesses - but Rebecca 's body isn't where it should be...In their hunt to find the living and the dead, Kearney and Alex are drawn together into a sinister world of death fetish and 'murderabilia', where relics and mementos of killers are traded, and life is only the first thing a victim will lose.

Steve Mosby is the best new author I have discovered in years. His books are full of amazing plot twists that aren't at all predictable, and more so, you're so into the story you don't have time to wonder. This book is no exception, fascinating from beginning to end. I read a quote which best sums up the essence of his books, "never assume you know what's going on until you have finished the last page." The psychological realism in the way he writes makes you empathize with his characters, even, perhaps especially, when they are most conflicted.The subjects are dark, exposing the underbelly of a world most of us don't want to think of, so if that is too much for you, perhaps this is not your kind of book. But he is never overly graphic or gory, and the skill of his syntax and the eloquence of his writing make the fact that he does leave some details up to your imagination even better. I highly recommend all his books, especially The Cutting Crew and The Third Person.

I....so...wait...Oh. My. God.

SM is a lyrical writer with a dark side, a good heart and a hero's moral compass. My dream man.

Alex Connor's wife kills herself and two years later, his brother confesses to killing their friend Sarah, whom he loved and lived with. But did he?

During the investigation Detective Paul Kearney crosses paths with Alex. But Kearney is slipping into an abyss he once seemed to just look into.

This review isn't so much about Still Bleeding as about all of Steve Mosby's early work up to and including Still Bleeding. All of the works following it are absolutely perfect crime fiction, hard to put down, five stars easy. I do not understand why more people on Amazon aren't reading them, but perhaps the popularity in England hasn't caught on here yet. Mosby writes so beautifully, so evocatively, he takes my breath away sometimes -- throw-away lines in the middle of a description that are like poetry. I find myself nodding "Yes, that is EXACTLY how it sounds!" or looks or feels or tastes. But the five early works ... difficult reads. They all seem to have a similar, very moral protagonist who gets involved trying to find the truth and the baddies. We root for him as we cringe at the risks he takes. A lot of time is spent doing research in the Internet and the rest of the time is spent following lead after lead around the city, eventually on the run and being trailed by more than one other of dubious intent. The bodies pile up. The stories are very dark. The first couple seemed to be taking place in some post-apocalyptic world. All start out fascinating but then get exceedingly complicated with too many threads to follow. Still Bleeding is that way. Perhaps the most unnerving part of Still Bleeding came in the prefix where Mosby says that Internet photos and videos similar to those described in the story can actually be found. He did not make them up. It is a horrifying thought.

I did finish this book because it was short, but, for the main character Alex Conner, I couldn't figure out what his role was supposed to be in this confusing story. His friend, Sarah, is missing and presumed dead when he returns from running away to hide after his wife committed suicide(which I don't think has any bearing on this storyline), then finds out his brother is in jail for her murder, but that isn't what this is about--the detective working on another case is following a trail leading to Alex, and etc. it just goes on and on and all I got was there is an 'organization' doing something but I don't know what--

I felt this story was so confusing just trying to figure out what the story is about and trying to connect the dots but I couldn't connect them. So not to spoil it for anyone---I don't know if it is about kidnapping, child predators, mob murder, or what???????

If I missed something--please inform me--

I was left suitably disturbed after putting this book down, it got so dark I felt like I needed to go and run in a field of daisies in a sunny place somewhere. Absolutely stunning book, terrifying, mind bending, twisted, brilliant, brilliant, brilliant.

I love the mind of Steve Mosby. This book is like a mash up of a really good crime novel with a touch of intelligent horror weaved through, enough to keep you on tender hooks, and wanting to keep the bedside light on. The ending of this book just had me stunned into silent shock.

Women are going missing, when their dead bodies turn up (the ones that do) they are drained of all their blood. All of it. Someone is draining it and getting off on their blood. It's got the police determined to find the killer, but it's not proving easy.

When Alex hears that his friend Sarah has been killed and they can't find her body, he rushes back from his years of travelling around the world, escaping the suicide death of his wife a few years earlier. Worse still, Alex's brother is in prison and confessed to the murder of Sarah. Things could not be much worse for Alex.

The book just goes to another level in relation to plot, a bizarre underground fetish scheme of the most disturbing nature is uncovered when Alex begins to investigate, he knows he's treading on dangerous ground but he gets given cryptic messages from his brother in prison and finds research that Sarah was doing before she died. What they uncovered will make you stop and breathe, and think, and breathe. Seriously deranged but very clever plot writing. I can't rave enough.

I don't want to give away too much but this is such an intelligent crime book, it's not obvious in the slightest, it through up surprise after horrific surprise at me, and I have read a lot of crime novels as it's my most read genre, this is something really different. There is a dark element, a creepiness, something so rotten and so shocking that it truly did take me aback and I don't get like that reading often. I thought I had read it all in fact. I needed a shower after reading this, the stench of death and corpses seemed to permeate off the pages.

The police are on the case, Alex is on the case, their paths were going to cross at some point, but will the killer with the taste for blood be found? What is this underground fetish group all about? And what will they do to protect their dark and disturbing secrets. This is one of those novels where I thought to myself "Did Steve have to research this stuff and is IT really out there and people are into it?" and you know what, I am too scared to Google it but I bet it's rampant. Very scary.

The book is chillingly good, it really did send shivers up and down my spine, I could not stop reading it, it's a novel that reveals more and more as it goes but you cannot put it together, it's too complex but once it all becomes clear it's dynamic, it blew me away, where Steve Mosby gets his ideas from I have no idea, but this was bloody brilliant (pun intended).

There is evil going on, dark acts, involving many, this is not a simple serial killer case at all, to share more includes spoilers, and I so want to tell you about the rest of it because it's so darn good. If you like to be a bit creeped out whilst enjoying a good crime novel and are not afraid of the depths of human depravity, you will love this. I did, absolutely one of the best books I have read in years. Very, very clever writing. Read it and you will see what I mean.

Great storytelling, fantastic complex characters, brilliant plot, unique concepts, chilling moments, dark, depraved and so, so good.
