Two victims. Brutally murdered in their own home. Body parts taken.
D.I. Graves is back on the case to face his toughest challenge yet. A case with no motive and no suspect, nothing at all that could explain why someone would kill innocent people in such a way.
Then the next victims are discovered. Another pair of bodies. New body parts taken. Again in their own home.
Someone is breaking into houses across the city at night, leaving horror in their wake. It seems to Graves that this could be two serial killers, working together. But how are they choosing their victims? Is any house in London a target? Is anyone safe?
To make matters worse, a journalist is threatening to cause more harm than good with her obsessive push in covering the story to further her career, and someone is targeting Graves personally, seeking revenge against him in relation to an old case.
Can Graves keep himself safe long enough to stop the serial killers before they strike again?
As soon as I read the blurb for this book I was intrigued, I always like to pick up books where possible for author’s that are new to me so I was really keen to get started on this one when the copy landed on my Kindle.
I thought that the characters were very well developed and I enjoyed their interaction. The plot and structure of the book were well prepped which helped to make it a gripping read from the start. The description in the book were excellent and they made me really feel as though I was there looking at the same
This is the second book in the series and I do think that it can be read as a stand-alone (I personally haven’t read the first book yet but I do plan to rectify that in the not too distant future and I didn’t feel that I was missing out on anything!).
This was a book with a solid plot and strong characterisation – the characters were very well developed, personable and believable. It is 4.5 stars from me for this one, rounded up to 5 stars for Goodreads and Amazon – it is an excellent story – highly recommended!!
This is the second book in the DI Graves series, the first in the series, The Demons Beneath is available now!
