I received a copy of this book from the book’s publishers via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
One murder is bad, in fact it’s very bad indeed. Two murders are worse. But three murders, that means that there’s a serial killer on the loose and that just isn’t going to happen on DCI Warren’s patch.
Middlesbury’s no longer a safe place for young girls to be alone at night. There’s a predator on the loose, methodical in his ways and savagely destroying people’s lives and not just those of who they have killed. But what’s linking these women? A prisoner has been released after committing almost exactly the same crime and using the same methods. This is all beginning to become a bit too close to home. Can DCI Warren stop this serial killer before he strikes again? You’re just going to have to read to find out!
This was a brilliantly intriguing murder mystery, though I have to admit I had worked out who-dunnit about halfway through the book. Nevertheless there are plenty of red herrings to lead you astray and the plot just thickens. So much so that I struggled to put the book down at times!
Gitsham has a great writing style and you can tell that he has thoroughly researched the ins and outs of the legal system and policing involved. A really fun read what I can greatly recommend reading. This was an excellent holiday read and would be brilliant to read just for fun, particularly if you enjoy the genre!
