How far would you go to catch a serial killer?
Haunted by the fact that he never got the chance to tell best friend Lorna that he loved her before she was murdered, Ruari sets out to track down the man he saw her with the night before she was murdered – the man police are certain was her killer.
Forensic psychologist Amy Kerr has been watching prominent Glasgow lawyer Alec McAvoy for months, certain that he is the so-called Dancing Girls Killer who evaded capture in London five years previously.
Now Ruari and Amy are closing in on the same man – but every step they take draws them deeper into the killer’s web.
This book marks the beginning of an excellent new crime thriller series. By being cut into episodes, the author is able to write out a huge story without limiting her vision – if this opening episode is anything to go by, that’s something to be grateful for!
Set in Scotland, the characters are distinctly Scottish in dialect and outlook. It’s something so simple but it made all the difference for me, giving the book a fresh feel and setting it apart from similar crime thriller novels.
There’s a serial killer out there, murdering young women and
leaving their bodies posed to be found – they’re being closed in on by
investigators from various directions, which is deliciously unlikely but
thrilling to read. It was just the right ratio of unlikely to plausible for me,
with amateur sleuths working parallel to the police and following their own
I particularly loved the characters and their
interactions. Ruari being my all-time favourite, the gradual reveals of his
backstory kept me hooked to the end. Speaking of the end though – this book
finished on a helluva cliffhanger but be not afraid… the next 4 episodes are
already out and available to buy!
