About The Book

A killer running rings around the police. A detective spiralling out of control.
DI Kate Young is on leave. She’s the force’s best detective, but her bosses know she’s under pressure, on medication and overcoming trauma. So after her bad judgement call leads to a narrowly averted public disaster, they’re sure all she needs is a rest.
But when Staffordshire Police summon her back to work on a murder case, it’s a harder, more suspicious Kate Young who returns. With a new ruthlessness, she sets about tracking down a clinical, calculating serial killer who is torturing victims and leaving clues to taunt the police. Spurred on by her reporter husband, Young begins to suspect that the murderer might be closer than she ever imagined.
As she works to uncover the truth, Young unravels a network of secrets and lies, with even those closest to her having something to hide. But with her own competence—and her grip on reality—called into question, can she unmask the killer before they strike again?


My Thoughts

Be advised, I love Carol Wyer books, so I’ll be a little biased with my review… 😉
This is a mystery read, but what keeps you reading is not only the mystery but the main character, DI Kate Young, the need to know more about her and her past. It’s not difficult to emphasize with her and try to give the support she needs, she has problems and is aware of them but is ready to work if her partners support her.
This is a book that will keep you guessing through all the story, making your own endings and twists while you follow the steps of DI Young and her team.
It’s never difficult to enter a story when you feel connected with the characters, as I said, Kate has some problems, you’ll know more of them as you read the story, but this makes the story more real. She is not perfect, far from it, but she is a hard worker and aware of her problems. She wants to be a good detective making the store more realistic for the reader.
Let’s not forget that this is a thriller, don’t expect an easy case with a messy killer, it will not be easy to discover who is really behind the murders, but this makes the book more interesting too!
This has been a really good read, full of twists and surprises and I really can’t wait to read the next book of DI Kate Young.
Ready. For “An Eye For An Eye”?
