About The Book

Four victims. Killer caught. Case closed . . .  or is it?
Growing up in a London family with ties to organized crime, Detective Constable Cat Kinsella knows the criminal world better than most cops do. As a member of the city’s Metropolitan Police, she’s made efforts to distinguish herself from her relatives. But leading an upstanding life isn’t always easy, and Cat has come close to crossing the line, a fact she keeps well hidden from her superiors.
Working their latest case, Cat and her partner Luigi Parnell discover a connection to a notorious criminal: serial killer Christopher Masters, who abducted and killed several women in 2012. Though the cops eventually apprehended him, his final victim, Holly Kemp, was never found and he never confessed to her murder, despite the solid eyewitness testimony against him. Now, six years later, the discovery of Holly’s remains near Cambridge seems to be the definitive proof needed to close the case.
Still, a few key items of evidence don’t quite line up. As Cat and Parnell look closer, they find discrepancies that raise troubling questions. But someone will do anything to keep past secrets hidden—and as they inch closer to the truth, they may be putting themselves in jeopardy . . .


My Thoughts

Being a detective should mean believe in the law and never break it, don’t you think? Detective Constable Cat Kinsella is a good detective, but her family has some ties with the organized crime, she tries to follow as much as she can/is allowed the rules but sometimes things happen, impossible to predict or to avoid. This is Cat’s baggage, not to be remembered the whole time but still never forget it, she is a very good detective, but can’t forget where her roots are.
This case will follow a cold case, a notorious serial killer that was apprehended a while ago and confessed the crime, the problem? The modus operandi doesn’t fit with the profile, as you can imagine Cat and her team will start asking questions when they start suspecting that there’s something wrong with all the case…
This had been a very interesting case, a little bit slow in the beginning, but as this is a series the author tries to update the reader with all the characters’ relations and baggage. This is the third book of the Cat Kinsella series, but you can read it as standalone, don’t worry.
I really enjoyed the chemistry between the characters, their friendship and special humour, it made the story more fluid and addictive. Because the plot is quite dark, an old case that will have some secrets attached and dangerous complications to follow.

About The Author

Caz Frear grew up in Coventry and spent her teenage years dreaming of moving to London and writing a novel. After fulfilling her first dream, it wasn’t until she moved back to Coventry thirteen years later that the writing dream finally came true.
She has a first-class degree in History & Politics, which she’s put to enormous use over the years by working as a waitress, shop assistant, retail merchandiser and, for the past twelve years, a headhunter.
When she’s not agonising over snappy dialogue or incisive prose, she can be found shouting at the TV when Arsenal are playing or holding court in the pub on topics she knows nothing about.
