About The Book

Old crimes don’t stay buried forever…
It’s high summer, and London sizzles in the grip of a heatwave. But when the body of young mother, Leanne Wyatt, is discovered in an East London park, the heat rises to boiling point for D.I. Matthew Denning. Under pressure to solve the case, and fast, he delves into Leanne’s history and finds that she was close to some dangerous individuals – could one of them have taken her life in an angry rage? But when another woman is found dead in similar circumstances, Denning is forced to consider that a killer stalks the capital’s streets.
But when young, ambitious, D.S. Molly Fisher, discovers a horrifying link to these deaths and a killing spree in South London a decade ago –a terrifying summer where young women died at the hands of a psychopath the press dubbed ‘The Bermondsey Ripper’, the case is blown wide open. Anthony Ferguson is serving a life sentence for the crimes, so are these new deaths the result of a copycat killer – or did the police convict the wrong man? Whatever the case, Denning and Fisher need to stop a killer in his tracks – before he sets his sights on them.

My Thoughts

This had been an interesting police procedural book, with two interesting detectives that I hope I’ll read them soon in a new case!
This is one of those cases that the weather seems to be one character more in the story, it is always present and seems to affect the mood of our characters.
This is an interesting case, it seems that two different victims are related in the same case; with a serial killer from 10 years ago. The detectives D.I. Matthew Denning and D.S. Molly Fisher will not have an easy summer in front of them, fingers crossed that they will work together and solve this case before the killer attacks again!
I liked how the author did an extensive job detailing the main characters, maybe preparing the reader for a series featuring them? Either way, I always love when the characters are put in perspective and not let the reader have to do the hard work to imagine them. I didn’t like much Molly, her way to act or her thoughts, I hope it will evolve in the next book!
The story is told between the two main characters, the discoveries in the cases and how they start seeing the connections between them. I don’t want to make any spoilers, so you’ll have to read the case if you want to know more!
