For me it was a solid police procedural, well detailed with the author Michelle Kidd giving me personal details and side-stories about the characters.
Women, apparently unconnected to each other, were getting killed. And it was up to DI Jack Macintosh to get to the truth. I hadn’t read book 1 so some nuances of the characters were lost on me. But I did get enough to enjoy the story.
What captured my attention was how the police were left stumped and a criminal profiling done on the killer led to one main conclusion which intrigued me. The killer was forensically aware.
With multiple POV, one being of the killer, every facet of the case was dealt with. For me, the book was slightly on the longer side, and I wanted more of thrill. Nonetheless, it picked up speed as the team grew on me.
When the body count started increasing, my heart too picked up speed. Shockers came in down and low. Secrets hidden in the past made its way insidiously into the present, with new connections.
The author managed to have a few tricks up her sleeve at the end too. An entertaining read.
