Summary

The headless body of a wealthy widow is discovered decomposing in Chelling Forest. Then a second victim is found. Detective Inspector Lorne Simpkins and her partner, DS Pete Childs, are assigned the case. Before they can discover the identity of the killer they must make a connection between the two victims.

After a third murder, Lorne receives a grisly surprise. Clearly, a vicious serial killer is on a rampage, and Lorne has become the killer's fixation.

Lorne can't allow her failing marriage or her new boss - a man with whom she shares a sensuous secret - keep her from focusing on her job. She must catch the macabre murderer, or risk becoming the next victim.

Excellent British Police Procedural

Exciting right from the beginning, starting with the brutal murder and beheading. DI Lorne Simkins is a relatable working mom. A great police procedural, with great characters, and taut tension from beginning to end. As the bodies are piling up, the DI is dealing with pressures at work and on the home front. Twists and turns will keep your heart pumping until the very end. I can't wait to read book two!

Ok-ish. Trite dialogue, unconvincing narrator.

A disappointing novel with an unconvincing heroine whose dialogue is trite and superficial. This is aggravated by the narrator. The narrator's voice is too young and girly for the characters portrayed, and her French accent is not consistent and not convincing. The narration is good, clear and well-paced, but unsuitable in this case, I think.
