One by one the girls disappeared…
When the frail body of a teenage girl is discovered strangled in a parking lot, shards of ice form in Detective Natalie Ward’s veins. As Natalie looks at the freckles scattered on her cheeks and the pale pink lips tinged with blue, she remembers that this innocent girl is somebody’s daughter…
The girl is identified as missing teenager Amelia Saunders, who has run away from home and her controlling father. Natalie’s heart sinks further when it becomes clear that Amelia has been working on the streets, manipulated by her violent new boyfriend Tommy.
A day later, another vulnerable girl is found strangled on a park bench. Like Amelia, Katie Bray was a runaway with connections to Tommy, and Natalie is determined to find him and track down the monster attacking these scared and lonely girls.
But when a wealthy young woman is found murdered the next morning, the word ‘guilty’ scrawled on her forehead, Natalie realises that the case is more complex than she first thought. Determined to establish a connection between her three victims, Natalie wastes no time in chasing down the evidence, tracing everyone who crossed their paths. Then, a key suspect’s body turns up in the canal, a mole in Natalie’s department leaks vital information and everything seems to be against her. Can Natalie stop this clever and manipulative killer before they strike again?
An unputdownable crime thriller from an Amazon bestselling author that will have you sleeping with the light on. This gripping rollercoaster ride is perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Rachel Abbott and Rachel Caine. Prepare to be totally hooked!
Book 7 is a fantastic addition to this series. DI Natalie Ward has had some big changes in her life recently. If you haven't read the previous books then maybe it's not time to read this review as it may contain spoilers.
I know I say this a lot but to get the best of this series knowing the back history is best so I would advise that you read the books in the series in the correct order.
It possibly would be good as a standalone, but for the best of it read them all.
Natalie is slowly getting to grips with her new living arrangements and her love life. Having gone through all the trauma she has in the past its nice to see Natalie attempting to take charge of herself again.
Having had promotion recently this doesn't stop Natalie from needing to be very involved this this latest case.
When the body of a young girl is found it's all hands to the deck as they say. More so when another body is found. There has to be a link somewhere and the team go out of their way to discover what is behind these killings.
I love the main characters in Carole's book, they seem to be brought to life being back with Natalie was like meeting up with an old friend.
Fantastic storyline as usual it will keep you gripped from start to finish. Twisty beyond twisty. It was good trying to guess which way certain things would go.
