Soon he would be able to touch her, to feel the warmth of her blood. And when the time came, nothing would stop him.
As D.C. Jennifer Knight investigates a routine stabbing in the quiet town of Haven, she is shocked at what seems like a personal message from beyond the grave.
When more bodies are found, Jennifer is convinced the killings are somehow linked. What she discovers is more chilling than she could possibly imagine. The murders mirror those of the notorious Grim Reaper – from over twenty years ago. A killer her mother helped convict.
Jennifer can no longer ignore the personal connection. Is there a copycat killer at work? Was the wrong man convicted? Or is there something more sinister at play …
With her mother’s terrifying legacy spiralling out of control, Jennifer must look into her own dark past in a fight not only to stop a killer – but to save herself and those she loves.
A heart-stopping supernatural thriller to engross fans of Rachel Abbott, Paul Finch and James Oswald.
My Review. 4/5
After the big cover reveal on Twitter of this book and what turned into a mad crazy twitter party, lol. I managed to get a copy via Netgalley, I was really happy and looking forward to reading something new, from a new author.
so thanks to Caroline and Bookouture for allowing me the chance to read this book.
I think Caroline has done a great job in writing this book. It’s a book that really made me think. I’m a believer in the paranormal, and regularly have readings. But I couldn't decide if I liked the idea of it being such a big part in the crimes. Maybe not liking is the wrong description. I struggled getting my head around a lot of it. Not in a bad way, I must say.
DC Knight is, a strong character and she is battling scars of what I can only describe as a very unhappy childhood, and a serious case off OCD. I think the story of this helps us to understand her more, and her psychic abilities Which not everyone believes in. Some see her as someone who could be suffering some sort of mental breakdown.
Investigating crimes that Jennifer is convinced are linked, and linked to the past. Crimes in which her own mother, helped to solve. Is she right, or is she seeing too much into it, and trying to make connections that are not there.
One thing that must be hard for author’s now is standing out from the crowd. But I think Caroline has done it with this book. It really is well written and put together.
And it has an ending that was just, well a shock. I didn't see what was coming. i guess it is left so the life and career of Jennifer can only grow, which I think would make a very interesting book 2.
I have tried my best to do this review without giving too much away, and it's left me feeling I haven't said enough. But i don't like spoiling things for those who have not read the book yet.
So give it a go, i think you will like it.
