    Solid book, a page turner and i'd like to read the sequel.

    British jargon fun to read as a yank. Villain a little too evil but perhaps that's what a villain is supposed to be!

    Excellent story that kept the pages turning. Very believable characters and I especially loved the heroine Lorne. The last page left me wanting more so hope we don't have to wait long for a sequel. Great writing and look forward to many more.

    I've been a good girl(?) this year, please could I have the next book in the series NOW. I have rarely come across a book that has tickled my literary tastebuds as much as this book did. In fact I was upset when I reached the last page,everyone was so believable and human. The test of a good book for me is.....it isn't a book, I was actually THERE as things unfolded.I cannot wait for the next in the series, and the next, and the next!

    Wow! This was another winner from M. Comley. The action starts from the first page and lasts until the very last page. The author is not afraid to do what it takes, even risking ticking off the reader, to take the story in a different direction. And it works really well for her. This is not for the faint of heart for sure! This second book deals with a nasty mass murderer, drug and teen prostitution trafficking ring leader, the horrible Unicorn, who has it in for DI Lorne Simpkins. He seems to always be one step ahead of everything they do and this book takes us all over the place, tracking down leads, chasing his captives and evetually to an ending that still makes me shudder. The Unicorn has to be one of the top villians I have ever read about. Comley has quite the imagination to come up with these storylines and characters, and to make them believable to the reader takes a lot of skill. She is one of the best writers in regard to character development I have ever read--and I have read a ton of thrillers! You will enjoy the edge of your seat, crazy ride all through the book that this nasty murderer leads you and at the end you will be left breathless. Do yourself a favor and get the third book right away--you won't be able to sleep until you know what happens after this book finishes up!

    No starts would be better

    Seven hundred pages of chase the bad guy, bad guy takes a hostage, free the hostage, continue the chase with another hostage etc. In the end the bad guy gets away one last time calls Simpkins who still doesn't know what to do about her husband, daughter, career. And that's where the book ends with a request that you read the first chapter of the sequel (which is evidently not the end either). This book is a total ripoff.

    Great Read!

    I really enjoyed this book. The heroine is tough yet you can identify with her and the story moves along at a fast pace. Its twists and turns will keep you "turning the pages".

    Nah, don't bother

    Disappointing to say the least. Bumbling police activity. No character development. Same mini plot over n over n over. And, no resolution at the end. Can you say 'waste of time.'

    Terrific Thriller!

    I was lucky enough to grab this TERRIFIC read when it was available for free on Amazon. Like Konrath with his "Trapped" novel, Comley writes in such a way that it is a main entree and not an "appetizer" read. It's a "slow burn" thriller where you truly don't know what you're in store for. Comley spoon feeds info in the beginning to introduce a foundation of knowledge so the reader isn't lost. I very much felt like I had landed in the middle of a tale that had a rich history of relationships and emotions before me. I felt "anchored" in immediately and didn't have to grapple with a feeling of motion sickness...which can happen when an exciting/violent/intense scene is present in the first few pages. Comley is absolutely brilliant at the terrible spiral of storytelling that she drags the reader through; wow! It didn't matter if I wanted to read it or not...with each chapter the story became more compelling than the last. I wanted so badly to know what would happen I am now stuck buying the next installment! Price? Huh...doesn't matter. What is going to happen with The Unicorn? The wretched excuse of a "man." Comley showcases humanity in the harshest light possible and does it perfectly. Too perfectly. If you squirm over extremely mature and violent themes such as the following: child rape/flesh trade/dismemberment, etc. you may have to pass. For me, the themes were contextually appropriate within the story and not gratuitous; no harm, no foul. But I mention for sensitive readers. Love the UK angle as the author is English. What a refreshing change of diction and culture. Fun! What I didn't like was how Lorne (MC) was so driven and obsessed in her role as inspector that her family was neglected. Even when her daughter is in grave danger...the job superseded all. I found that to be slightly unrealistic. As a mother myself, there wouldn't be another job that could turn my head when situations such as those presented in this novel occurred. Nothing would distract me from the role of protective and later, nurturing comforter. Lorne's dealings in relational situations of importance are also left unresolved and "dangling." But just because I didn't like that doesn't mean that it isn't true of that character(the latter). Like in some past interviews, I really wish there were half star ratings. I'm giving this novel 4.5 stars.

    Having read the previous book in the series, I felt invested in the characters and was not happy about what some of them had to endure. However, their hardships were what made this book believable.

    My first bad book

    I couldn't get passed the first sixty some pages. Boring!!!!!!
    I gave it a 1 star rating, only because it wouldn't let me give it nothing.

    Good Read

    The book holds your interest with all the twist and turns of the plot. It was a bit disturbing that it ends with the open endness that writing a sequel does. A fast paced book and one that keeps your interest. A bit of the gore but that seems to be the way of this generation of writers. Overall I would recommend the book.
