Ice-cool Detective Inspector Sarah Quinn and fiery reporter Caroline King lock horns once again in this latest intriguing mystery.
When the body of a teenage girl is found in a local park, it is assumed she is the latest victim of a serial sex offender who has been plaguing the area. But when it transpires that the dead girl’s best friend is missing, DI Sarah Quinn is drawn into a complex murder investigation where nothing is as it seems.
With the investigation heading nowhere - not helped by the hostility of the victim’s distraught father, nor by Sarah’s unsympathetic new Chief Superintendent who seems determined to undermine her – a shocking turn of events leads Sarah to question her own judgement. And that’s before she encounters her old foe, calculating journalist Caroline King …
I have previously read and enjoyed the first book in Maureen Carters, Bev Morris series. And I really enjoyed it, so I was so looking forward to this book.
There was something about this book, that I can't quite put into words, i did enjoy it to a certain degree, however I felt like I was getting a little mixed up in parts and had to keep flicking back a few pages, to try a figure out what I was missing.
It is a good story line, and the characters are believable, some even likable. But there was something not right. Like something was missing. But maybe that was just me. It felt at times like I couldn't keep up with who was who.
The story line is interesting, and it does make you want to know the Who's and the Why's It is worth reading, as that way you can make up your own mind.
I will be reading more from this author, as I have the whole Bev Morris series to read, after purchasing it for my mother one at a time, each time she finished a book she asked me to get her the next one, having only read the first one myself so far, i can see a readathon coming on real soon.
I would like to thank Netgalley and the publishers for my review copy of this book.
