Blurb; Meet Amy Winter: Detective Inspector, daughter of a serial killer.
DI Amy Winter is hoping to follow in the footsteps of her highly respected police officer father. But when a letter arrives from the prison cell of Lillian Grimes, one half of a notorious husband-and-wife serial-killer team, it contains a revelation that will tear her life apart.
Responsible for a string of heinous killings decades ago, Lillian is pure evil. A psychopathic murderer. And Amy’s biological mother. Now, she is ready to reveal the location of three of her victims—but only if Amy plays along with her twisted game.
While her fellow detectives frantically search for a young girl taken from her mother’s doorstep, Amy must confront her own dark past. Haunted by blurred memories of a sister who sacrificed herself to save her, Amy faces a race against time to uncover the missing bodies.
But what if, from behind bars, Grimes has been pulling the strings even tighter than Amy thought? And can she overcome her demons to prevent another murder?
My Review; What a brilliant start to a new upcoming series! This is book one in the DI Amy Winter series, kicking this series off with a page turning case that needs to be closed!
I loved it! Devoured it within a day. The chapters are short, it’s a well written and cleverly thought out story! Fast paced… I just had to finish this for answers!
I actually felt really sorry for DI Amy Winters, but she shows she is a brave, strong and determined character not to be messed with! With a great team beside her too which I can’t wait to see more of in future stories of this series. However, two vile murderers! Grr. Poor Amy.
A well deserved four stars. Highly recommend!
