You think you know who to trust? You think you know the difference between good and evil? You’re wrong …
The body of the head teacher of an exclusive Devon school is found hanging from the rafters in the assembly hall.
Hours earlier he’d received a package, and only he could understand the silent message it conveyed. It meant the end.
As Exeter suffers a rising count of gruesome deaths, troubled DS Imogen Grey and DS Adrian Miles must solve the case and make their city safe again.
But as they’re drawn into a network of corruption, lies and exploitation, every step brings them closer to grim secrets hidden at the heart of their community.
And once they learn what’s motivating this killer, will they truly want to stop him?
SMART. GRIPPING. GRUESOME.
This is a psychological crime thriller in a class of its own.
WARNING: Most definitely *not* for the faint-hearted!
With a warning of not for the faint-hearted, then it’s almost like a challenge to pick up the book and prove that by no means are you faint-hearted.
I did enjoy this book, but maybe I had read too many of the reviews and was expecting a little more than I got. Don’t get me wrong there was nothing at all wrong with it, it’s a good solid read but I do feel sometimes hype around certain books can build you up a little too much.
I was expecting it to be a seriously gruesome read but personally I didn’t find that, it is let’s say quite descriptive in some scenes and maybe you won’t want to be sat reading it over your bowl of cornflakes first thing.
The story itself is pretty decent. Grabs hold of you and keeps hold, wanting and needing to know a little bit more.
DS Adrian Miller and DS Imogen Grey are the crime fighting duo in this read. An interesting pair of characters, I would have liked to get to know a little more about them.
It’s down to these two to try and solve a spate of murders. Bodies are turning up and someone is really torturing them, but who, and why. Is there even a connection with them? And can Miller and Grey make Exeter safe again?
I have two more books by this author patiently sat on my kindle waiting for me to read them. I don’t think it will be to long before I get around to reading them.
