Back when I was in school, I remember one of my English teachers telling us about a book she was about to read written from the perspective of both the killer and the killer's victim.

Each chapter flipped between the 2, and I think the victim was female and homeless, but this may be wrong. It was probably released around 1998-2000, although I'm not sure if it was newly released or an old book that she'd discovered.

I know it's a bit vague, but I've recently got back into reading a lot more, and remembered this story, thinking it could be interesting. I've Googled it, but found nothing, and was wondering if anyone here could help.

  • Could it be Complicity by Iain Banks? Published 1993 and there are multiple victims, but has the dual perspective. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Complicity_(novel) – Matt Thrower Oct 15 '19 at 8:49
  • Hi, I'm not sure if it is or not. It's the only answer I have though, and it was always a long shot. It could have been this, because it has the murdererer / victim perspective, and it would only have been about 5 years old. I'll definitely check it out because it's the kind of story I was looking for. Thanks. – James R Oct 25 '19 at 14:08
