The serial killer is behind bars. But the murders are just beginning…
DC Maggie Jamieson’s past comes back to haunt her in this dark and gripping serial killer thriller.
Three missing women running out of time…
They were abducted years ago. Notorious serial killer Bill Raven admitted to killing them and was sentenced to life.
The case was closed – at least DC Maggie Jamieson thought it was…
But now one of them has been found, dismembered and dumped in a bin bag in town.
Forensics reveal that she died just two days ago, when Raven was behind bars, so Maggie has a second killer to find.
Because even if the other missing women are still alive, one thing’s for certain: they don’t have long left to live…
This is the second book in the DC Maggie Jamieson series and I thought it was great!
I really enjoyed the first book, but this one for me was even better and I loved the plot line! It was fast paced and there was plenty going on in each chapter to keep me engrossed, and engaged with the story. It was gritty where it needed to be and that helped add to the story, it is very well written.
I loved the Raven and I thought he was well developed and a fabulous character – he is one of those people you should really dislike but he holds your attention – I loved the interaction between him and Maggie as she is working with her team to try and crack the case.
I do think that this would read absolutely fine as a stand-alone, but it is a continuation from the previous book if you did want to read them in order.
It is 4.5 stars from me for this one, rounded up to 5 stars for Goodreads and Amazon – after how the book ended I can’t wait for the next in the series now!! Very highly recommended and a thrilling read!
