The third in the crime series featuring forensic psychologist Paula Maguire by Claire McGowan acclaimed as 'Ireland's answer to Ruth Rendell' by Ken Bruen.
Victim: Male. Mid-thirties. 5'7".
Cause of death: Hanging. Initial impression - murder.
ID: Mickey Doyle. Suspected terrorist and member of the Mayday Five.
The officers at the crime scene know exactly who the victim is.
Doyle was one of five suspected bombers who caused the deaths of sixteen people.
The remaining four are also missing and when a second body is found, decapitated, it's clear they are being killed by the same methods their victims suffered.
Forensic psychologist Paula Maguire is assigned the case but she is up against the clock - both personally and professionally.
With moral boundaries blurred between victim and perpetrator, will be Paula be able to find those responsible? After all, even killers deserve justice, don't they?
This is the third book to feature Dr Paula Maguire. And another book I have really enjoyed.
I'm finding that the more I read the more i'm liking characters, but I'm certainly having one of those, oh I don't like that character, then a oh yeah I do like them now.
The characters are really becoming stronger with each book, and the stories are getting more intense.
I was looking forward to this book, as I had some unanswered questions from book 2. And guess what, I still had unanswered questions at the end of this one.
I guess now though if the author has not actually decided all ready what is to happen, then she now has a choice, which in a way I like, and in another its like*I need to know........
Paula is back and is still working as a forensic psychologist with the Missing Persons Response Unit. Her private live is well let's just say manic.
Her work life even more manic, Paula will not let go once she is on a case, and goes out of her way for answers.
Personally due to the back history of the characters I would advise that these books be read in order, but that is just my personal view.
I'm looking forward to reading book 4 in this series now, and will be starting it real soon.
