There are, of course, suspects – boyfriend, father – to check out but, worryingly, it looks more and more like a stranger murder.Warren’s worst fears are confirmed when another young woman is killed in the same way.The MO fits that of Richard Cameron who served twelve years for rape. But Cameron never killed his victims and he has a cast-iron alibi.Then personal tragedy intervenes and Warren is off the case. But the pressure is mounting and another woman goes missing. Warren is back but will the break he desperately needs come before there’s another victim?

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Have grown to like Warren and the team, but think the author insulted their intelligence in this novel. 1) The real criminal seemed obvious from very early in this book even with some references that led to other perpetrators. 2) The book is 100+ pages too long. There are still some really compelling parts of this world and characters so will try next in series and hope for the best. --Books4Me
While the story is fine, it was overburdened with far too much information that didn't contribute to the killings to be solved. This should be a 300 page novel. All the unnecessary detail causes the writing to become boring, and lacks crisp definition. It's a yawner.
