When the mutilated body of a police officer is found in a derelict factory, Hamptonshire force are shocked to the core.
DCI Helen Lavery returns from injury leave and is immediately plunged into an investigation like no other. Is this a random attack or is someone targeting the force? Organised crime groups or a lone killer?
As the net draws in, Helen finds the truth lies closer than she could have imagined, and trusts no one.
But Helen is facing a twisted killer who will stop at nothing to ensure their secrets remain hidden. And time is running out…
A police officer is murdered, the body mutilated, who committed this appalling crime?
DCI Helen Lavery is preparing to return to duty after an injury when she is called back to head up the investigation.
It is the various characters and actions expertly utilised to weave this tale that will immediately grab your attention and hold it until you reach the final page. You won’t want to put this one down.
This is a gripping, superbly written police procedural. It is well plotted and has terrific, well drawn characters.
I’m not sure why it has taken me until now to read a Jane Isaac book, I have three of her books waiting TBR, but I am so glad I did. Although this is the third in the series it is easy to read as a stand-alone. Still, as I always say, it’s good to read books in order of the series they belong to. I should take my own advice and catch up on the other two books!
