A killer stalks the streets of East London. All over the area, murdered young women are discovered, their bodies posed into disturbing recreations of fairytale princesses.
Detective Ruby Preston is determined to hunt down the murderer who is using the women to realise his dark fantasies. But when body parts are found at the home of her lover, Nathan Crosby, Ruby is torn between her job and her heart.
Convinced that he is being framed, Ruby must catch the killer before Nathan becomes the number one suspect. But as more victims are found, it becomes harder to prove his innocence.
As Ruby starts to close in on the twisted individual, can she stop him before he strikes again? And how well does she really know the man she loves?
A terrifying, addictive, serial killer thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat, for readers of Angela Marsons, Peter James and Rachel Abbott.
I read and enjoyed the first book to feature Ruby Preston - Death note. So I was really looking forward to starting this. I started it as soon as little one had gone to school, and I'd raced round the house with the hoover and duster, just to make it look like I wasn't entirely lazy. This book then managed to take over my day. I sat down with it, and occasionally got up to make my self a cuppa, but I was soon sat down again each time clutching my kindle, enthralled in the pages of the book.
I was there with Ruby, working the case with her.
Ruby is one awesome character, her work/private life has a tough balance. And sometimes the two just can't help but cross over.
Women are going missing and being murdered, It's down to Detective Ruby Preston and her team to investigate.
Things seem a little to straight forward when they think they have the suspect early on in the case. But when another body is found it seems the police need to look elsewhere.
Nathan Crosby is Ruby's on off lover, the father of her child. As much as she tries to resist him there is chemistry between then can not be ignored. Nathan soon becomes prime suspect when body parts are found under his bed.
Does Nathan have anything to do with the murders or is he, like he says being set up.
Ruby is torn between her job and her feelings for super criminal Nathan. And it's going to take a lot for her to manage her job and her feelings.
An exceptional nail biting tense read. I would have no problems what so ever recommending this book and the previous book to anyone who likes a heart pumping, nail biting read.
I look forward to reading more from this author.
