About The Book

There’s a serial killer on the loose.
When bodies start washing up along the banks of the River Thames, DI Henley fears it is the work of Peter Olivier, the notorious Jigsaw Killer. But it can’t be him; Olivier is already behind bars, and Henley was the one who put him there. The race is on before more bodies are found. She’d hoped she’d never have to see his face again, but Henley knows Olivier might be the best chance they have at stopping the copycat killer. But when Olivier learns of the new murders, helping Henley is the last thing on his mind…
Will it take a killer to catch the killer? Now all bets are off, and the race is on to catch the killer before the body count rises. But who will get there first – Henley, or the Jigsaw Killer?


My Thoughts

Can you imagine the satisfaction you have to feel being a police detective after catching a dangerous serial killer? Just a small problem, what about the pain and anger when some victims appear dead with the same modus operandi as someone you thought it was in prison? I really wouldn’t like to be in the same position as the main detective of this story, DI Anjelica Henley… she not only will have to find a killer but also to stop the “Jigsaw Man” to find the killer before the police… 
As you can imagine, this is a race against the clock, who will find the killer first, the police or the infamous Jigsaw Man. Don’t expect an easy case, it will be difficult to read and sometimes a little bit gruesome, but that’s why he is copying this killer, the victims are dismembered and difficult to recognise.
I have to say that I really enjoyed this read, it was addictive and easy to follow the police steps. I liked that the author explains Anjelica’s background, it is easier to connect with her and understand her movements and decisions. I would like to think that this will not be her only case, I liked her style and her braveness, we need more police detectives like her!
This is a super addictive read, it will not let you sleep, but who needs to sleep when a serial killer is on the loose? Ready for “The Jigsaw Man”?
