DCI Antonia Hawkins of the Metropolitan Police is leading her first murder investigation.
But can she solve this case, or are things just proving to much for her.
An ex lover comes to work the case with her, can they rekindle what they had before he left for her to sort her relationship out with her now ex. And can they solve the murder case together.
The run up to Christmas and the killer is on the loose in London. Killing women but the only link between them seems to be a tasar gun. Can Antonia find him and get him locked up before any more bodies are found.
A very good debut crime novel and I think we are going to see more of DCI Hawkins and her team. I would defiantly read the next one.
I won this book from a Goodreads giveaway, but because at the time i was struggling to hold a book, I ended up also buying it for my kindle so i could finish it off.
