About The Book

He doesn’t just want your identity. He wants your life…
No one sees him coming.
A stock-market trader is pushed from a high-rise balcony and falls to his death on the street below. The only clue the police can find is a box of matches.
No one survives for long.
The decomposing body of a member of the Saudi Royal Family is discovered in a car. Evidence suggests the killer took the man’s life, then stole his identity, wore his clothes and lived in his hotel room – before vanishing into thin air like smoke.
Nothing but matchsticks are left behind.
Dr Bloom realizes the only thing linking these murders is a trail of burnt matches and broken lives. Time is running out – and if she isn’t careful, she might be the next to burn …


My Thoughts

I have to say from the beginning that I am addicted to the Dr Bloom series, they are so twisted and original that whenever there’s a new book out I run out to read it! This is the fourth book of the series, you can read it as standalone, but there’s a lot of baggage with the characters, so, I would recommend it to start from the beginning, they are worth it!
The new case from our beloved Dr Augusta Bloom will be as mysterious and intriguing as always, some men are killed without any connection between them, only a trail of burnt matches… What meaning could they have? Why kill these men? The police has a suspect, but Augusta is not sure if he is the correct person for it… As always, she has the help of special agent Marcus Jameson, an ex-agent that is ready to help but always on his own terms…
Of course, I can not forget the three wheels in the story, the always present and scary Seraphine, who seems to be impossible to catch or kill!! 😉
I think I love these characters so much that the mystery is not the most relevant part of the book for me, I always want to know how they are in their lives and if the case they are investigating this time will be the last one!
Ready for the story of the week? You’ll love it, I am sure!
Are you ready to meet “The Imposter”?
