From the bestselling author of Mummy’s Favourite and The Trophy Taker.
DC ‘Charlie’ Stafford returns with a superb new, brutally gripping serial killer thriller, where the hunter becomes the hunted.
A faithful dog lies wounded beside the mutilated body of its owner.
A woman is discovered bound and gagged, dead in her own bed.
Both are police officers.
Both have a red rose at their side… worryingly more will follow…
Lies and accusations abound but who is behind the murders and why are the victims being targeted?
Charlie, Hunter and the team must find the killer targeting their own before another body is found.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, the plot had me completely gripped and guessing right up to the end – I particularly liked the cover of this one, very atmospheric and an excellent choice for the book. The characters were great and I loved Charlie and Hunter and the rest of the team and how they worked together – I can see this being a series I definitely want to follow!
This is the third book in the DI Charlotte Stafford series and whilst I have the other two I haven’t read them as yet so I would say that this one is fine to be read as a stand alone – I didn’t feel that I missed out on anything from not having read the previous books.
The writing style was excellent and you could tell the author knew her stuff writing a story such as this, the whole thing was believable, sadly I gave read a few books in this genre of late that have been a bit far fetched – I have given this book 4.5 stars rounded up to 5 stars for Goodreads and Amazon!
Now I have read this one I will be reading the previous two books – Mummy’s Favourite(book 1) and The Trophy Taker (book 2) very soon as I enjoyed this one so much – I do love it when I find a new author to me that covers one of my favourite genres!
