Summary

Meet Amy Winter: Detective Inspector, daughter of a serial killer.

DI Amy Winter is hoping to follow in the footsteps of her highly respected police officer father. But when a letter arrives from the prison cell of Lillian Grimes, one half of a notorious husband-and-wife serial-killer team, it contains a revelation that will tear her life apart.

Responsible for a string of heinous killings decades ago, Lillian is pure evil. A psychopathic murderer. And Amy’s biological mother. Now, she is ready to reveal the location of three of her victims - but only if Amy plays along with her twisted game.

While her fellow detectives frantically search for a young girl taken from her mother’s doorstep, Amy must confront her own dark past. Haunted by blurred memories of a sister who sacrificed herself to save her, Amy faces a race against time to uncover the missing bodies.

But what if, from behind bars, Grimes has been pulling the strings even tighter than Amy thought? And can she overcome her demons to prevent another murder?

Excellent book

Right up my street. Smacks of rose and Fred West.
Can’t wait for book 2.
Just change the narrator please. Only persevered because the book was so good!

Wrong narrater

Far fetched with unlikeable characters. The narrater also wasn’t right for the story. A shame, as the story could really have worked with some tweaks.

Great story - wrong narrator

I really liked the story and am looking forward to the next book of the series! ...but I agree with other reviewers: the narrator was wrongly cast! Her breathy, whispering reading style did not seem right for a thriller and was at times downright irritating.

A real grower

The story develops and draws you in until your hooked. The psychology dilemma of an adopted police detective, finding out her biological parents are the countries most famous serial killers. The parents seem to be based on the West's so that gives you an idea of the background story of the parents. And the adoptive father being the detective famed for catching her parents.
Amy's mother contacts her from prison with information, Amy had subverted the memory of even being related to her, and she is drawn into her past whilst trying to focus on her current abduction case and career.
