The woman’s limbs were so thin; the skin on her arms as translucent as tracing paper. Around her neck lay a faint string of purple bruises. In one so frail, darker, angrier marks might be expected but Beth knew the bruising would have stopped the moment her heart stopped beating.
When a walker finds the body of a woman by the shores of Lake Ullswater, the police are put on high alert. Felicia Evans was known to be a tough character, but who would have strangled her?
Detective Beth Young quickly spots the links to three cold cases. Three women strangled and discarded in the stunning, wild hills of the Lake District.
As Beth begins tracking down witnesses, the team receives an anonymous letter claiming the charming mayor of Carlisle is behind the murders. There’s pressure from the top to clear his name. But Beth is determined to find the truth no matter whose feathers she ruffles in the process.
Beth knows the clock is ticking. The killer is hunting again. And it’s down to her to find who’s responsible before another woman becomes his prey…
A gripping edge-of-your-seat thriller from bestselling author Graham Smith, perfect for fans of Joy Ellis, LJ Ross, and J.R. Ellis.
What can I say.
Nothing I say will do this book the justice it so rightly deserves. Graham Smith is one hell of a writer. (Have I said that before?)
Dragged into the pages right from the beginning before you are spat out right at the end, wanting more. I love the characters that Mr Smith has created. Not just here in the Detective Beth Young series, but also in other books i've read by this author.
He has a knack for giving you what you want in damn good read.
i'm waffling again. But I just love books by this author. I look forward to each and every new book coming out, and as soon as I receive a copy, I have to start it. It doesn't matter what else i'm reading at the time, that has to stop. Curl up, clear your diary and get set for one hell of a ride.
Back with Detective Beth Young and still getting to know her, but liking her more each time I picked up the book. A tough story line to write, but I feel Mr Smith did it wonderfully. With some amazing twists this book keeps you hooked. Wanting and needing to know what is going to happen. Wanting to know the 'who dun it'
Beth is working for the Major Incident Team in the Lake District. A dedicated individual, who likes to get on with things a bit of a tough cookie and has a wonderful mind for working things out. A true asset to the force. I can see this girl going places, and I'm hoping to be on the long journey with her.
(now there is an idea Mr Smith. Maybe Beth needs a new team mate, a Vicki in her life. lol)
Although it was lovely being back in the Lakes, its such a beautiful place, a beautiful background to a very disturbing case. Faced with the discovery of an elderly lady having been murdered its work caps on and case open. Beth really is work oriented, she lives and breathes the force, giving it everything she has. Thinking they had a lead on who the murderer could be seemed to come to soon, I was thinking what, no way... obviously it was no way, but a great way of getting you hooked. It really got my tiny brain working. Once the team realise what a sick individual they are looking for, some leads take them to looking back over cold cases, could this be a killer that has been out there for a long time.
For me this book had it all, not for the faint hearted, but any crime thriller reader will love this. Treat yourself, you know you want to...
