Description

The headless body of a wealthy widow is discovered decomposing in Chelling Forest. Then a second victim is found. Detective Inspector Lorne Simpkins and her partner, DS Pete Childs are assigned the case.

Before they can discover the identity of the killer they must make a connection between the two victims.

After a third murder, Lorne receives a grisly surprise. Clearly, a vicious serial killer is on a rampage...and Lorne has become the killer's fixation.

Lorne can't allow her failing marriage or her new boss--a man with whom she shares a sensuous secret--keep her from focusing on her job. She must catch the macabre murderer, or risk becoming the next victim.

    I really enjoyed this story. The characters and descriptives were really well written. My only small criticism is I found the plot very easy to figure out and was quite frustrated that the main character took so long to work out what was going on. Still a good read and I am. Ow purchasing the next story in the series.

  • Hard to suspend my disbelief, more research required!

    An enthralling detective yarn with many twists, that i enjoyed, but as a native Brit I found the dialogue and the geography somewhat unauthentic, which impeded the suspension of disbelief. This was especially true in the case of the distances travelled! We may be a small country, when compared with the vastness that is the USA, but over here we're highly regional, even though the areas are small to US eyes, and we're also very densely populated. Without wishing to plot spoil, the final twist in the plot was geographically unlikely! Over here, a lot tends to happen in a comparatively small geographical area, and the plot would have been more believable if the action had been more geographically restricted. Also, in the UK, police authorities are also highly regional and work in cooperation... sometimes! But this takes time, and a lot of red tape. It's definitely not as cohesive as the FBI. I would have found the story and characters a lot more plausible if the story had been set in the United States, and if the characters had been American detectives, as there were so many Americanisms in the dialogue. Also, I found it very hard to suspend my disbelief once the focus moved to the taxi company, as the author clearly has no idea of the regulations and red tape that comprehensively harness British taxi companies -as the story is set post-Soham murders, and as an ex cabbie myself, I can confirm that the industry is very heavily regulated and that the company would have been closed down by the local council very fast if it had not screened its drivers to eliminate any chance of anyone with a criminal record of the kind described in the plot, being employed in a role where they are likely to come into contact with vulnerable people! Had the cabs in question been shady, illegal minicabs, the plot would have been a lot more believable.
  • Best read in a long time!
