Blurb; How do you catch a killer who leaves no trace?
A victim killed with a single, precise stab to the heart appears at first glance to be a robbery gone wrong. A caring, upstanding social worker lost to a senseless act of violence. But for Detective Kim Stone, something doesn’t add up.
When a local drug addict is found murdered with an identical wound, Kim knows instinctively that she is dealing with the same killer. But with nothing to link the two victims except the cold, calculated nature of their death, this could be her most difficult case yet.
Desperate to catch the twisted individual, Kim’s focus on the case is threatened when she receives a chilling letter from Dr Alex Thorne, the sociopath who Kim put behind bars. And this time, Alex is determined to hit where it hurts most, bringing Kim face-to-face with the woman responsible for the death of Kim’s little brother – her own mother.
As the body count increases, Kim and her team unravel a web of dark secrets, bringing them closer to the killer. But one of their own could be in mortal danger. Only this time, Kim might not be strong enough to save them…
My Review; I’m so excited to be getting back into this series. The whole series is brilliant and I’ve finished book five. Yet again a brilliant, tense, edgy, suspenee filled and page turner of a read. Loved it. I highly recommend you read this series in the correct order as this book links very closely to the previous book.
Kim is back and I bloody love her. One of my favourite characters ever. However, more cases are here and she needs to figure it out. But this time an old convict behind bars is back to torment, test and push Kim. Will she succeed? Or is Kim still hot on her heels and won’t let her win, always one step ahead? We see more of the relationship between Kim and her mother in this story.
Brilliantly written. Enjoyed it all. I cannot wait to see what lies ahead for Kim and her team in book six. A well deserved four stars from me.
