Summary

There's a body in the water - and she's wearing your clothes.

Impulsive and intrepid psychotherapist, Juliet Grey, can't resist responding to an anonymous text message telling her to go to Hammersmith Bridge at dawn. But it isn't simply the dead body in the water that disturbs her, it's the way something uniquely personal to Juliet has been left on the corpse.

Another obscure message, another London bridge, and Juliet finds herself caught up with a serial killer, who leaves personal mementos instead of collecting trophies.

Teaming up with local detective, DCI Brad Madison, Juliet strives to find out why she has been targeted and how it's connected to the accident that killed her brother, 19 years ago.

Can Juliet use her knowledge of the human psyche to get inside the mind of the killer, before another body is found under a bridge? And how long before Juliet herself becomes the next target?

Very enjoyable.

A nicely paced story, set in London and bringing a psychotherapist into working with the police to solve a string of murders which seem to be linked to her. Although is a bit unbelievable at times it's still an entertaining and enjoyable listen.

Great beginning...

...and middle but the end was unfortunately over-explained. Maybe slightly over written but swung along at a pleasing pace for all that.

A delightful error

I bought this book by mistake - a confusion to do with girls on trains- nonetheless it was a happy result.
It is a light entertaining mystery thriller that moves at a fast pace. It has delightful, characters who are mostly believable.
A brilliant light read, full of fun, mystery and excitement.

Absurd heroine!

The story in this novel was interesting and had many possibilities. What ruined it all for me was the main character, Juliette. She was a psychoanalyst but a more neurotic, unable to deal with life women could not be found. Would the author really expect any reader to buy the idea that this women with ties to this murder would be able to participate in an official investigation? Seriously? The Met would allow this women to question a suspect while in custody? All she had to do was wheedle her potential lover DCI to be able to go along with him during an investigation. Completely unrealistic. It probably isn't good that the book seemed to long by half and the fervent wish of this reader that this would be the only appearance of this character ever. I was rooting that this heroine would be the last victim! Suffice to say, this book wasn't my cup of tea. A great premise but poor presentation with a very unlikeable heroine. Get real, Author Waines.
