‘This book was fantastic and it kept me gripped from the first page and I read it in a day, I really, really didn't want to put it down – it’s one of the best I've read so far in 2017 … Would not hesitate to give the book 5 stars!!’ Donna’s Book Blog
Colourful, plastic boats were scattered in puddles on the floor. In the bathtub lay Linda Upton, fully-clothed, lips a shade of blue, and bloodshot eyes wide open.
When a young mother is found drowned in the bath, clutching a receipt saying ‘all debts paid’, Detective Robyn Carter knows it’s just the beginning of a harrowing case. She recognises the signs of a serial killer, and a second victim with a receipt confirms her worst fears.
There are no witnesses. The victims had no debts. With the body count rising and the local press whipping the public into a frenzy, Robyn is under pressure to solve the crime in record time. But her team can’t find a link between the victims, and the cracks are starting to show.
Just when her leads have dried up, Robyn discovers photographs in two of the victims’ houses, which she thinks could unlock the case. But as she hones in on the killer’s shocking motive, one of her own is put in terrible danger.
Can Robyn stop the most twisted killer of her career before it’s too late?
So I get to learn a little more or Detective Robyn Carter right after meeting her in the first book.
Robyn is certainly growing on me, and I think she is going to be one hell of an interesting character.
This book kicks off great with what appears to be a death at a health spa. It's only when someone who Robyn Knows asks if its possible for her to look into the death of her late brothers partner, that it seems it may not have been just a heart attack that killed him. The only problem is Robyn would be stepping on toes of fellow officers if she was to investigate.
But that doesn't put her off. It soon becomes apparent that maybe there was more to it. Robyn enlists the help of her cousin to do a little digging around for her.
Robyn is certainly a bit of a workaholic, and doesn't let the grass grow under her feet, if she has a job to do then she does it.
The plots are well thought out with twists and turns through out the book and this really does keep you turning the pages, It didn't take me long to get through this book. I'm enjoying Carols writing, and this one was a thoroughly good read. I will certainly be keeping an eye out for more in this series. I would have no problems recommending this book to any crime thriller fans.
Many thanks to Carol Wyer, Bookouture and NetGalley, for the ARC.
