A man's body is found in an empty house. His heart has been cut out and delivered to his wife and children. He is the first victim, and Detective Inspector Helen Grace knows he will not be the last. But why would a happily married man be this far from home in the dead of night?
The media call it Jack the Ripper in reverse: a serial killer preying on family men who lead hidden double lives.
Helen can sense the fury behind the murders. But what she cannot possibly predict is how volatile this killer is - or what is waiting for her at the end of the chase...
Wow. This book certainly has a whole lot of action packed into it.
Having just re read the first book, Eeny Meeny (which I would recommend if you are going to read, read them in order) I thoroughly enjoyed book one, but this one just blows it out the water.
So much going on, you just want to continue reading, and once I started it, it really didn't take me long to finish as I had to read it ever time I got chance.
To say I'm a little behind on this series is a bit of an understatement. But I do have the next 3 books on my Kindle waiting for me to start them, and I'll be diving into book 3 real soon, that's for sure.
This book just flowed along brilliantly, with more than enough to keep you interested. A brilliant follow up to the first book, and I think it's safe to say this is going to be one hell of a series of books.
If you have read book one, then you will Know Helen Grace is certainly a complex character. She has Flaws, Drive, Ambition and a past she's not to keen on. She also has BALL's, she is not afraid to challenge things, and deals with her stresses of her job and her life in a very different way to how other Book detectives deal with things. she's certainly not your normal head for the pub and get wasted kind of copper, after a bad day.
Once you start this book, then I think you should put all plan's on hold. As you will not want to do anything but read it.
Have you read this book? What did you think?
