A violent attacker is on the loose. His calling card: a tattoo on his victims’ skin. With no witnesses and no evidence left at the crime scenes, it will take all of the National Crime Agency’s resources to track him down.
At the head of the investigation, codenamed Operation Juniper, Senior Investigator Joanne Stuart knows that the clock is ticking. The time between abductions is decreasing and the perpetrator grows ever more brazen. She fears it won’t be long before his assaults turn deadly.
As the hunt closes in, Jo’s already troubled personal life is put under further pressure. With danger closer than she thinks, just how far will Jo go to solve the case—and at what cost?
I was looking forward to reading this book, because Bill Rogers is a reletivly new author for me. I recently read the first book in this series, The Pick, The Spade and The Crow. Secondly because it's based around Manchester. I always seem to enjoy a book when I can actually visualise the places that are mentioned, I find I like books that have familiar locations in them. And enjoy reading how the author describes those places.
I said of the first book, that it could be the start of a promising series of books. And having read this one, the second book, I still feel it could become a really great series.
The National Crime Agency are investigating what looks to be a serial rapist on the loose.
Operation Juniper. Its Senior Investigator Joanne Stuart (Jo) who is heading up the team.
A team who know they have their work cut out to find who this person is. The attacks are becoming more frequent, so the Attacker seems to be gaining confidence in what he is doing. The team are concerned if they don't catch him soon, he could become more violent or even kill.
Jo's private life is also causing her problems. This continues from the first book, and things really don't seem to be getting any better for her.
A good interesting read, leaves you thinking and wondering where it's going. I'm looking forward to following this series as more books are added.
