Blurb; Bobbi caught a glimpse of the car, saw the blood splashed across the front seats, and felt the nausea rise up. It should have been her who was working last night, not Harriet. It should have been her.
When a social worker is brutally murdered, Detectives Mike Nelson and Lena Overton are straight on the scene. But with a long list of potential suspects, can they work out who’s next before the killer strikes again?
It’s Lake Haven’s first murder in eighteen years, and the community is terrified – especially Bobbi, who was not only supposed to be on duty that night, but also has the same long dark hair as Harriet and drives the same blue car. Now Bobbi lives in constant fear that the murderer will be back for her…
When Mike and Lena make a link to a missing-persons case and uncover a wide-spread grudge against social services, they know they’re close to uncovering the killer – but can they connect the last few dots and stop him before he takes another victim?
My Review; I must start by saying why have I not heard of this author before now? I AM GUTTED! What a brilliant author and story, I feel like I have missed out massively now on his previous stories but never mind, I will catch up. A new favourite author to look forward too.
Anyway, woah! What a brilliant opening to this story even if it is a little dark and full on. It just pulls the reader straight in and then you’re trapped till you’ve finished, sorry. I found it a fast paced, easy read but some chapters were a bit too long for my liking. But it is a bloody brilliant story with an action packed, explosive ending that will make your jaw drop. I awarded a well deserved four stars.
A cleverly written story and plot! I did not expect the outcome at all, a true shocker. This story has made me realise how cr*p I would actually be at solving cases! I would highly recommend Next To Die to you all!
