    I have a general rule about not reading a book with an average Goodreads rating of less than 3.5 stars. I made an exception for this because I thought the premise was interesting. I wish I hadn't bothered! And the premise really was interesting - a serial killer sends out a chain em...

    If you could mark your own exam..what would you give yourself? ...

    My thoughts: What is really scary in Stop Me is its premise. Nowadays internet chain letters are such every day occurences that one cannot help but shiver at the reality of this happening: the premise of Stop Me is completely believable and could happen anyday to anyone. The writing...

    Stop Me is relatively straightforward story, simply but competently told. This is both its strength and its weakness. The strength is it's a relatively easy read, well structured and paced, and adequately plotted. In some ways it felt like a one-off television drama fleshed out into a ...

    When Leo's wife disappears from a restaurant, he doesn't have a clue what's happened to her. That's until he sees the newest email from the Vacation Killer, and is positive he has her. But when no jaw bone is sent to confirm she's been murdered, Leo's life falls apart. He is determined...

    Started really well - chilling and gripping storyline about a chain e-mail serial killer - but towards the middle I found myself skim reading until it picked up again. I did want to finish it though, and liked the twist and the ending. ...

    A very fast moving, gripping tale. Some intriguing characters and a complex plot that keeps you wondering right to the end. ...

    Just had to put this book down, the story got boring and I just couldn't get to grips with it. Eventually when there is nothing else to read i will get round to it again but not just yet! ...

    Ondanks een vlot geschreven verhaal, zit er weinig spanning in. Op de helft vond ik het verhaal wat saai worden omdat er gewoon een lange tijd niks gebeurde en ik me nog lang niet kon voorstellen waar het heen ging. Uiteindelijk is het wel een verhaal wat niet aan je verwachtingen vold...

    Well, I had no idea this was Richard Jay Parker?s first novel and look forward immensely to reading his next. Having read Stop Me on the back of Harlan Coben?s, Hold Tight, I was struck by the difference and yet the similarities between the two books. The difference: R J Parker uti...

    Richard Jay Parker's debut novel has received great reviews and is in four Amazon Bestseller Charts. For those who love thrillers mixed with suspense, then this one's for you! As with many readers, I too had my list of suspects and missed with every single one! "howdy doody on va...

    A good thriller that leaves behind any concerns about buying Indie Books. Distraught at the disappearence of his wife, Leo continues to search years after everyone else gives up. The crime is blamed on a mysterious serial killer but doubt remains because his calling card (a jawbone ...

    OK, I admit I downloaded this book because others on twitter talked it up. And they were right. But I feel I have to warn you: if you read at nite in bed with a kindle, like I do, be prepared to suddenly look at your alarm clock and say "dang, I'm getting no sleep tonight". What ...

    Stop Me by Richard Jay Parker actually has a really good premise - A killer sends a random email to a random person and says it has to be sent on to ten of their friends or acquaintances - they in turn have to send it onto another ten people each and if it ends up back in the killers e...

    This book had me hooked from page 1. Great storyline, very original that keeps you guessing right to the end. Some lovely similies and descriptive writing techniques make it not only a gripping story, but a pleasure to read. The description of the ego of the serial killer and the would...

    Well, I had no idea this was Richard Jay Parker?s first novel and look forward immensely to reading his next. Having read Stop Me on the back of Harlan Coben?s, Hold Tight, I was struck by the difference and yet the similarities between the two books. The difference: R J Parker uti...

    Book 32 Stop Me by Richard Jay Parker "Forward this email to ten friends if it ends up in my inbox within a week I won't slit the bitches throat....." Leo Sharpe's life is turned upside down when his wife Laura disappears. Women are being gruesomely killed in America, Germany...

    I'm sure you've seen them. The emails that flood your inbox that say forward this to 10 people or something bad will happen to you. Well when Leo Sharpe gets an email from a man calling himself The Vacation Killer he deletes it just like most people do. What Leo doesn't know is that th...

    Richard Jay Parker's debut novel has received great reviews and is in four Amazon Bestseller Charts. For those who love thrillers mixed with suspense, then this one's for you! As with many readers, I too had my list of suspects and missed with every single one! "howdy doody on va...

    A good thriller that leaves behind any concerns about buying Indie Books. Distraught at the disappearence of his wife, Leo continues to search years after everyone else gives up. The crime is blamed on a mysterious serial killer but doubt remains because his calling card (a jawbone ...

    OK, I admit I downloaded this book because others on twitter talked it up. And they were right. But I feel I have to warn you: if you read at nite in bed with a kindle, like I do, be prepared to suddenly look at your alarm clock and say "dang, I'm getting no sleep tonight". What ...

    Stop Me by Richard Jay Parker actually has a really good premise - A killer sends a random email to a random person and says it has to be sent on to ten of their friends or acquaintances - they in turn have to send it onto another ten people each and if it ends up back in the killers e...

    This book had me hooked from page 1. Great storyline, very original that keeps you guessing right to the end. Some lovely similies and descriptive writing techniques make it not only a gripping story, but a pleasure to read. The description of the ego of the serial killer and the would...

    Very twisty and was a fast read until...I did what I always do when I get to a part in a book that I know is going to be uncomfortable/scary/suspenseful and I stop reading because I can't handle it at that moment. Then I just look at the book out of the corner of my eye for weeks knowi...

    A tightly written, unpredictable and well-paced thriller, it has elements of quite disturbing creepiness, and engaging emotionally with the characters, I found, was sometimes uncomfortable. I particularly liked the fact that I did not figure out the ending of the story, which is a r...

    I was expecting a much more hard hitting storyline than what i got. the cover and content of the E-mails being sent gave me thoughts of a sick maniac that could turn out to be a less intelligent hannible lector, but as equally disturbed. it didn't deliver from the image and feel that t...

    I liked this! It took a lot for me to not peek at the ending - I'm pretty weak when it comes to suspense, lol. I appreciated all the loose ends being tied up. I especially liked what Bookwalter did. I had a bit of a chuckle over that. I only wish that I didn't know who Cleaves was work...

    Well, I had no idea this was Richard Jay Parker?s first novel and look forward immensely to reading his next. Having read Stop Me on the back of Harlan Coben?s, Hold Tight, I was struck by the difference and yet the similarities between the two books. The difference: R J Parker uti...

    "Howdy doody" is a salutation that won't ever be the same for me after having read this thriller debut novel. There?s a riveting/relatable opening to STOP ME, and e-mail which includes the following text: Forward this email to ten friends... If this email ends up in my inbox with...

    This book was suggested to me because I enjoyed Dan Wells' I Am Not A Serial Killer. I'm glad it suggested it, because I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. The premise: We have a serial killer who kidnaps his victims and then sends out an email spam exhorting people to email it to ten f...

    I was intrigued by the idea for this story; a serial killer who sends out emails to multiple addresses instructing the recipents to forward the message to all of their friends. If their friends then forward the message to their own friends, maybe the message will arrive back into the k...

    Book 32 Stop Me by Richard Jay Parker "Forward this email to ten friends if it ends up in my inbox within a week I won't slit the bitches throat....." Leo Sharpe's life is turned upside down when his wife Laura disappears. Women are being gruesomely killed in America, Germany...

    I'm sure you've seen them. The emails that flood your inbox that say forward this to 10 people or something bad will happen to you. Well when Leo Sharpe gets an email from a man calling himself The Vacation Killer he deletes it just like most people do. What Leo doesn't know is that th...

    Richard Jay Parker's debut novel has received great reviews and is in four Amazon Bestseller Charts. For those who love thrillers mixed with suspense, then this one's for you! As with many readers, I too had my list of suspects and missed with every single one! "howdy doody on va...

    A good thriller that leaves behind any concerns about buying Indie Books. Distraught at the disappearence of his wife, Leo continues to search years after everyone else gives up. The crime is blamed on a mysterious serial killer but doubt remains because his calling card (a jawbone ...

    OK, I admit I downloaded this book because others on twitter talked it up. And they were right. But I feel I have to warn you: if you read at nite in bed with a kindle, like I do, be prepared to suddenly look at your alarm clock and say "dang, I'm getting no sleep tonight". What ...

    Stop Me by Richard Jay Parker actually has a really good premise - A killer sends a random email to a random person and says it has to be sent on to ten of their friends or acquaintances - they in turn have to send it onto another ten people each and if it ends up back in the killers e...

    This book had me hooked from page 1. Great storyline, very original that keeps you guessing right to the end. Some lovely similies and descriptive writing techniques make it not only a gripping story, but a pleasure to read. The description of the ego of the serial killer and the would...

    Very twisty and was a fast read until...I did what I always do when I get to a part in a book that I know is going to be uncomfortable/scary/suspenseful and I stop reading because I can't handle it at that moment. Then I just look at the book out of the corner of my eye for weeks knowi...

    A tightly written, unpredictable and well-paced thriller, it has elements of quite disturbing creepiness, and engaging emotionally with the characters, I found, was sometimes uncomfortable. I particularly liked the fact that I did not figure out the ending of the story, which is a r...

    I was expecting a much more hard hitting storyline than what i got. the cover and content of the E-mails being sent gave me thoughts of a sick maniac that could turn out to be a less intelligent hannible lector, but as equally disturbed. it didn't deliver from the image and feel that t...

    I liked this! It took a lot for me to not peek at the ending - I'm pretty weak when it comes to suspense, lol. I appreciated all the loose ends being tied up. I especially liked what Bookwalter did. I had a bit of a chuckle over that. I only wish that I didn't know who Cleaves was work...

    3.5 ? This was my first book in the genre of crime, and I did enjoy it too. The book is an easy read, it is well written, nothing complicated to make you go over the lines again. However, lack of details about a few people, and some of the events made me give it 3 stars, and that ...

    I have a general rule about not reading a book with an average Goodreads rating of less than 3.5 stars. I made an exception for this because I thought the premise was interesting. I wish I hadn't bothered! And the premise really was interesting - a serial killer sends out a chain em...

    My thoughts: What is really scary in Stop Me is its premise. Nowadays internet chain letters are such every day occurences that one cannot help but shiver at the reality of this happening: the premise of Stop Me is completely believable and could happen anyday to anyone. The writing...

    Stop Me is relatively straightforward story, simply but competently told. This is both its strength and its weakness. The strength is it's a relatively easy read, well structured and paced, and adequately plotted. In some ways it felt like a one-off television drama fleshed out into a ...

    When Leo's wife disappears from a restaurant, he doesn't have a clue what's happened to her. That's until he sees the newest email from the Vacation Killer, and is positive he has her. But when no jaw bone is sent to confirm she's been murdered, Leo's life falls apart. He is determined...
