DCI Bennett faces the most harrowing case of his career.
A psychopath, who escaped capture, is hell bent on revenge and executes a series of events that will not only impact on Bennett physically, but will have emotional and professional consequences.
A body is found with its fingers amputated, then an investigative journalist, embroiled in the pornography and drugs scene, is murdered.
Bennett’s team is faced with some baffling evidence. Hatpins and bicycle spokes become pivotal to the inquiry but the police struggle to connect the evidence. It is only when a Detective Sergeant from the team is kidnapped that Bennett realises that he is the true target.
Can Bennett solve the case before it’s too late? How many people will he lose in the process?
Oh my goodness, the book took me on a real rollercoaster ride of emotions, I didn’t want it to end as I knew what was going to happen but still found myself holding my breath to find out how the story was going to play out- I wasn’t disappointed, but I was a bit sad, it was very tense at times.
Again this is another fantastic book in the DCI Bennett series from Malcolm Hollingdrake and I stand by my thoughts that the series has got better as it has progressed- this is hands down the best book in the series so far!! I cannot wait to read the fifth book, if it is anything like this one, I’m in for a real treat – 5 stars from me for this one – it’s a brilliantly written, hard hitting book!!
