Discover a crime thriller which will have you gripped from the explosive start to one of the most shocking endings of the year.
Henry Roberts is a serial killer. He has a type — young, blonde, attractive women. He is three years into a life sentence.
Two of his victims were never found.
Now, Henry Roberts is dying. He wants to make a deal. Move him to a secure unit by the sea and he will tell the police where the other victims’ remains are.
The offer is accepted and Detective George Elms travels to the force who led the original investigation. He is the messenger. He finds a police force and a community still shattered. As he reviews the old case notes he also learns something else. Henry Roberts didn’t work alone.
A woman goes missing. She fits the profile of the other victims. The circumstances of her disappearance do too — she never made it from her commuter train to her car.
Then a second woman goes missing. George is convinced they are linked. Henry Roberts told him on his prison visit that two is better because: you can make the other one watch.
Time running out for George. He is convinced that Henry Roberts knows who he should be chasing, but will he help before he takes his last breath? Or the women take theirs?
Perfect for fans of Kimberley Chambers, Damien Boyd, Rachel Abbott, Patricia Gibney or Mark Billingham.
I had been wanting to read this book for a while but had to read other books that I had promised to review for other blog tours so it took me longer than I would normally take to get to this one – and now I’ve read it I can honestly say that is was so worth the wait!!
I loved the plot line and the story was one that completely gripped me, so addictive and I needed to keep reading right to the end, finishing the book in the early hours of the morning. The character development was completely on point and I loved their interaction as the story progressed.
The writing style was brilliant as I have come to expect from this author and I am already looking forward to his next release.
An absolutely cracking thriller – 5 stars from me – loved it!!
