Summary

A killer is targeting former students of the Bloomsbury Academy of Law. The victims - all female - are gruesomely butchered according to a pattern corresponding with the legal syllabus. Even more disconcerting are riddles sent by the killer to investigating officer, Chief Inspector Jake Carver, offering clues as to who is next and where they will die. 

Up-and-coming lawyer Madeline Kramer, a former classmate of a number of the slain, soon finds her life turned upside down by the savagery. And when she decides to help Carver track down the killer, she places herself in mortal danger. Can Maddy and Carver unscramble the complex riddles and save the lives of those destined to die?

Thoroughly Enjoyable

This book surprised me. It had me trying to listen & finish it in one sitting. The carefully structured story and characters are quite compelling and trying to fathom the perpetrator(s) as I listened really had me thinking... I’ll say no more ...
I do hope this author will write more books and maybe continue with the main characters too.
The narrator was fine - but did take me a few chapters to settle in to his voice/timbre.
I highly recommend this book.

Excellent British crime novel

Storyline flows smoothly with excellent narration. I hope we will see other novels on Audible from this author
