A faithful dog lies wounded beside the mutilated body of its owner.
A woman is discovered bound and gagged, dead in her own bed.
Both are police officers.
Both have a red rose at their side… worryingly more will follow…
Lies and accusations abound but who is behind the murders and why are the victims being targeted?
Charlie, Hunter and the team must find the killer targeting their own before another body is found.
Gripping and SO Exciting!
This psychological thriller is superbly written and really puts the reader at the heart of the investigation. I felt as if I was part of the team!
Charlie Stafford, detective constable, works as part of a close knit murder investigation team. DI Hunter ‘the guv’nor’ is held in high esteem by his squad and then a new member is foisted upon them and upsets the status quo. As if that wasn’t bad enough it happens at the start of a killing spree – murders happening so quickly one after the other that the team are struggling to keep up, never mind get on top of things. Added to the stress of a new member who is most definitely NOT a team player there is the matter of an IPCC investigation relating to their last case which seems to be dragging on, all adding to the mounting stress for Hunter.
This is a gripping read, with excitement mounting throughout the book. I found myself reading well into the night, desperate to know who the perpetrator of such heinous crimes was – and let me tell you, it wasn’t who I thought! Excellently executed story, well planned and keeping the reader on their toes – this is one police procedural I cannot recommend highly enough. What a terrific novel!
My thanks to Melanie Price of Aria – and my apologies for missing the blog tour due to illness. I received an arc via NetGalley. This is my honest, original and unbiased review.
