To the public, he's a hero: a killer who targets convicted paedophiles. Two men are dead already - tortured to death.
Even the police don't regard the cases as a priority. Most feel that two dead paedophiles is a step in the right direction.
But to DC Maeve Kerrigan, no one should be allowed to take the law into their own hands. Young and inexperienced, Kerrigan wants to believe that murder is murder no matter what the sins of the victim. Only, as the killer's violence begins to escalate, she is forced to confront exactly how far she's prepared to go to ensure justice is served....

The plot is absorbing and well- paced. Maeve, our detective, is engaging and the progress in her personal life from the first novel is enjoyable. It is well read - I especially liked the use of a male narrator when this was appropriate. I will be downloading the next in the series immediately.
I was disappointed with this book after enjoying a previous Jane Casey book. It was slow to start and did not capture me at all. I persevered and managed to enjoy the last quarter reasonably. I know that if I had borrowed this book from the library I would not have got past the first couple of chapters.
