He wasn’t always a killer. At first he just wanted to talk.
D.C. Charlie Stafford has an odd case on her hands. And it may be her toughest one yet.
A burglar who isn’t interested in valuables, the subject of Operation Greystream is a strange but smooth operator. In the dead of the night, gloved and masked, he visits the elderly. He doesn’t hurt them and, if they beg, he won’t take anything of real value. All he wants is conversation… and they’re powerless to refuse him.
But then 87-year-old Florence Briarly is found by her friend, cold to the touch and neatly, too neatly, tucked into bed. And Charlie realises this case has taken a sinister, urgent turn. Now this stealthy burglar has had a taste of murder, it’s only a matter of time until he craves it again…
I love the cover for this book and the blurb was on that really drew me in!
I thought that the plot was very well developed and there was plenty of detail to keep my full attention and I like the way the books twisted and turned as it went towards the end. I thought that the characters were well developed and I loved their interaction too.
This is book 5 in the DC Charlotte Stafford series but it reads fine as a stand-alone story. The author has a great writing style that made it very hard to put this book down!
It is 4 stars from me for this one, I really enjoyed the story and it is definitely one I would recommend, this is definitely an author I will be keeping a closer watch on after reading this one!
