Hi everyone,

I’m here with my review of this gorgeous book!




Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery…

When body parts are found on the banks of the River Thames in Deptford, DI Angelica Henley is tasked with finding the killer. Eerie echoes of previous crimes lead Henley to question Peter Olivier, aka The Jigsaw Killer, who is currently serving a life sentence for a series of horrific murders.

When a severed head is delivered to Henley’s home, she realises that the copycat is taking a personal interest in her and that the victims have not been chosen at random.

To catch the killer, Henley must confront her own demons – – and when Olivier escapes from prison, she finds herself up against not one serial killer, but two.




If you’re looking for a book that will keep you on the edge of your seat, this is the one for you! This book truly lives up to its title. When a copycat killer is on the loose dismembering bodies and leaving them in the style of a previously convicted serial killer, alarm bells ring for DI Angelica Henley from the Serial Crimes Unit. She previously investigated the Jigsaw Killer and this all seems like it has happened before. To be able to solve this case, she must confront the man who almost killed her. But can she solve the case before it’s too late?

This was a phenomenal debut novel that left me wanting more, desperate to find out what was going to happen next. It isn’t an easy read and is gruesome at points to read. I don’t think you can expect much else when there’s a jigsaw killer on the loose!

The author equally creates fantastic characters with characters to root for and a great police procedural mystery. It’s a twisted, fast-paced journey and one that I enjoyed being taken along for the ride with!

My only dislike was the length of the story, it felt as though it could have been shorter without taking away from the story.

This is a fantastic mystery and it’s great to see all of the pieces fall into place (pardon the pun). A great plot and I definitely want to read more by this author in the future!
