From the bestselling author of the acclaimed DCI Lambert series comes The Controller, a gripping serial killer thriller introducing Sam Lynch and Special Agent Sandra Rose.
It is six years since special agent Samuel Lynch left the FBI following the disappearance of his son, Daniel. Lynch believes an underground organisation known as The Railroad is responsible and has never stopped searching.
When Special Agent Sandra Rose investigates a house invasion gone wrong, she discovers the assailant has the legendary, and infamous, Railroad tattoo carved onto his back and he claims to know Daniel’s whereabouts.
Rose draws Lynch in to her case, and together they become embroiled in an unparalleled world of violence and evil.
It seems that to see his son again, Lynch will have to confront his greatest fear and face the ultimate test: an encounter with the Railroad’s enigmatic and deadly leader, The Controller.
I thought that this was a thoroughly enjoyable story and I am so glad I picked up a copy of this book!
I loved the pace, it was fast and spot on for this story. It helped make it in to a real page turner and I flew through the pages as I needed to see how it would all end, I did the classic “just one more page” with this book and before I knew it I had been reading for two more hours than I had initially planned!
I thought that the characters were well developed and the interaction was great. It is five stars from me for this one, a great start to a new series and I will definitely be looking to read the next book and more from this author!!
