Overview

What if the serial killer you were investigating was someone you knew?



DS Wendy Knight's first murder case was always going to test her limits, but even she couldn't anticipate that a sadistic serial killer might be someone she knew - very well.



As her investigation unfolds, so too does a sinister plot that will turn her world upside down and make it increasingly difficult to distinguish friend from foe in her tightknit world.



By the time Wendy realises she is the killer's final intended victim, she's left fighting against her personal instincts - and for her life.

Please reprint this book! Thete are far too many typos to even read it. Someone else should edit and publish it over. Perhaps it was the writer that made all the typos. If so the current editor and publisher or other staff should have caught them. Too bad. It seemed like it could have been a good read! Simone24

With 2 "F-bombs" on the first couple of pages, I dumped this! I won't tolerate this filthy language.

The killer uses a bowline knot as a noose. Bowline knots are specifically used because they don't slip. Typical of author's shoddy effort. Not worth reading.

Quick read, and I was okay with it. I'm just glad it doesn't take so much time to finish otherwise I suspect it would've fallen below 3-stars rating. This read was just right - I didn't regret time spent on it but it wasn't the greatest either. I needed to scratch an itch for murder mysteries and grabbed the shortest read I could find. I only have one problem with this book. At times, I don't think the characters are reacting to situations appropriately given their characteristics/personalities. Wendy's a person who's so focused on the job that at the end of the day it consumes her, or so I thought and that was how her brother described her, and how she saw herself as well but after Robert's appearance, she's suddenly all chirpy and bubbly. The 180º turn in her mood and priorities is too quick. Yes, it can happen but I felt like I missed a big chunk of what was happening, there should be more in between.

My first book by this author and boy am I impressed. His characters are unexpected and full of life. They talk like real people. The story whizzes along at breakneck speed and kept me guessing until the shocking climax. Highly recommended.

Who proofread? Story is unbelievable. And the ending...really?

That ending was totally unexpected! Wow! There isn't anything I can write in this review without spoiling the adventure for someone else. Excellent, quick read. Wendy's return to work was mighty disappointing, but it didn't take away too much from the full story.

This was a quick fun read. Little bit different twist to your standard murder mystery fare but a lot of fun. At least in this British based story you didn't have to suffer through a lot British slang.

I kept waiting to care about any of the characters, but the story was just not developed enough. The ending was completly unbelivable.
