The serial killer is behind bars. But the murders are just beginning…
DC Maggie Jamieson’s past comes back to haunt her in this dark and gripping serial killer thriller.
Three missing women running out of time…
They were abducted years ago. Notorious serial killer Bill Raven admitted to killing them and was sentenced to life.
The case was closed – at least DC Maggie Jamieson thought it was…
But now one of them has been found, dismembered and dumped in a bin bag in town.
Forensics reveal that she died just two days ago, when Raven was behind bars, so Maggie has a second killer to find.
Because even if the other missing women are still alive, one thing’s for certain: they don’t have long left to live…

A Very Gratifying Read!
I knew when I read the first book about DC Maggie Jamieson that we were going to get along – and I was right!
Maggie is back with her original team investigating murders and looking forward to getting on with the job. What she didn’t expect was to find herself in the middle of the investigation; Bill Raven confessed previously and was charged and found guilty of several murders despite the bodies never being recovered. However, when the bodies turn up, recently murdered whilst he was incarcerated the media are looking for a fall guy – and Maggie seems to be the most convenient. Did she really make mistakes?
This is most definitely a dark and gripping read! Twisting this way and that, I needed to keep my wits about me to keep up. I love that everything is explained so well, and involves multiple agencies, not just the police force. Maggie Jamieson’s character is expanded in this second novel, showing more of her personality. Cleverly plotted and well written, this is a very gratifying read and one I was very happy settle down with. There are several surprises along the way, but the biggest one occurs right at the very end! I cannot wait for book three now! Without a doubt, this is a solid five star read and fully earns every single one of them!
My thanks to the publisher for my copy and to Book on the Bright Side for my spot on this tour. This is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
