About The Book

James Garrett was critically injured when he was shot following his parents’ execution, and no one expected him to waken from a deep, traumatic coma. When he does, nine years later, Detective Inspector Rebecca Kent is tasked with closing the case that her now retired colleague, Theodore Tate, failed to solve all those years ago.
But between that, and hunting for Copy Joe – a murderer on a spree, who’s imitating Christchurch’s most notorious serial killer – she’s going to need Tate’s help … especially when they learn that James has lived out another life in his nine-year coma, and there are things he couldn’t possibly know, including the fact that Copy Joe isn’t the only serial killer in town…


My Thoughts

Layers and layers of twists and intriguing characters; impossible to stop reading and also impossible to discern who could be the killer!A very addictive read for all crime lovers!
Can you imagine seeing your parents killed in front of you and receiving a bullet in the head at the same time? This is what happened 9 years ago, where James Garrett was injured and no one expected him to survive. Now, he has awaken from coma and everyone hopes to solve his father’s murder…

You may wonder what could relate these two different cases together… this is a spoiler I would not reveal! But, believe me when I say that it’s worth the ride!The story is told between different timelines, not to get you confused but to share the full situation with the reader. And I have to say that it’s not difficult to follow but interesting to read, I just keep turning pages!
This is a book to make you guess, to make you trust and distrust each one of the characters in it; to make you think. But who doesn’t love a book to make you plot your own story before reading the big reveal? I love to!
