Summary

The last time DCI Jamie Carver involved a would-be victim in his hunt for a serial killer, it ended badly. Now they want him to do it again, only this time the 'victim' is a Dominatrix. 

As if he hasn't enough on his plate - a brutal killer poised to strike again; shadows of the past that still haunt his dreams; an investigation under mounting pressure to succeed; a beautiful woman whose bizzare lifestyle may be the key to finding the killer. And that's not counting the young girl whose life he's trying to save from ruin or the ambitious colleague scheming to bring him down. 

As the kill count mounts, signs point to a link with Carver's first serial killer case - that of the notorious Escort Killer, Edmund Hart. But Hart is dead, having hung himself in prison, so how can that be? 

This is just one of the mysteries Carver must solve in this gripping first outing for the detective who knows his reputation as the UK's foremost serial sex crime investigator is built on sand. And when the killer strikes at the heart of the investigation, he knows that in order to protect those closest, he must confront what he most fears - his own failings.

Far fetched, but clever

Very clever, but maybe I’m naive as I found it rather far fetched. I couldn’t put it down but ... well, some unlikely characters.

Awful

Unbelievably dreadful , this is an insult to the intelligence , the narrator is so wooden and the narrative is so banal , and of course , it has the required foul language that most so called police procedural books have these days . A waste of money ,
