DI Jim Carruthers has to put his personal feelings for newly- appointed DCI Sandra McTavish aside when a young student is brutally attacked and left for dead.

Meanwhile, when a university lecturer is stalked by one of her own students, Carruthers is horrified to discover that the academic is none other than his ex-wife, Mairi. Are the attacker and stalker one and the same, and if so, will Carruthers’ ex-wife be next?

When a second then a third victim is discovered, not only dead but mutilated, Carruthers and his team are tasked with searching for a murderer. A murderer who takes great pleasure from killing.

What is the victims’ connection to a cult in North America, which seems to be getting a stranglehold in a Scottish university? Why have these women been targeted? And who is doing the killing?

It looks like there might be a serial killer on the loose in Castletown but can DI Jim Carruthers stop this depraved murderer before they strike again?

Why haven't I read any novels by Tana Collins before now? Sometimes I think there are just too many good books - then I think 'Nope .. I need to read faster!' When a young university student suffers a vicious attack, Di Jim Carruthers and his team investigate. Carruthers not only has to deal with a murder a few days later but the recently demoted detective also needs to find a way to work comfortably with his new DCI. Is there a serial killer on the loose in the town, or is it too soon to tell? This is a beautifully structured, well-written crime thriller. The mix of police politics, personal lives along with the details of the investigation are perfectly balanced; just enough of each to keep the readers' attention glued to the page. The story unravels at a good pace with enough clues to whet the appetite for more - how I wish I had read this series from the beginning! A gripping story which flows well and has easily earned a full five stars. Definitely an author to add to my 'must watch' list!
