Two traffic officers are killed on an isolated mountain pass in North Wales. Inspector Drake is called to the scene and quickly discovers a message left by the killer – traffic cones in the shape of a No 4.
The killer starts sending the Wales Police Service lyrics from famous rock songs. Are they messages or is there some hidden meaning in them?
Does it all mean more killings are likely? When a politician is killed Drake has his answer. And then the killer sends more song lyrics. Now Drake has to face the possibility of more deaths but with numbers dominating the case Drake has to face his own rituals and obsessions.
Finally when the killer threatens Drake and his family he faces his greatest challenge in finding the killer before he strikes again.
I read this book back in November 2014 but as it has been re-launched I am sharing the original review I wrote on Goodreads on my blog! The book is also free to download until 20th November 2017 on Amazon – so no reason to not grab a copy!
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review and I loved it – I loved the pace, the descriptions and the plot as it developed. I have already added the next two books in the series to my wishlist and have already recommended the book to friends. For me it was just fab! 5 stars
Following this initial review my husband also read it and gave the book 4 stars – so definitely a hit in our house! It is also a place we go to regularly on holiday and even as we drive down the roads the writing from the series is really brought to life – very enjoyable and a lovely setting!
