The Blurb –
‘Hugely confident … harrowing, visceral … recommended’ Ian Rankin on Dead Inside
A brutal murder…
When a burned body is found with its teeth missing, DC Maggie Jamieson discovers that the victim may be the husband of one of her probation colleagues.
A dark history…
As the body count rises, the team becomes increasingly baffled by how the victims could possibly be connected until a clue leads them to a historical case that was never prosecuted.
A terrible secret…
In order to catch the killer, Maggie must piece together what happened all those years ago before it’s too late.
Today is my stop on the Dead Mercy blog tour. Many thanks Sarah Hardy for the chance to read and review.
My thoughts – This is the fifth installment in the Maggie Jamieson series and it just keeps getting better and better. The author has firmly established herself as a must read crime writer.
After the cliff hanger of the last book we finally get to find out who has been murdered and it hits close to home for Maggie and the team. Again the author’s knowledge shines through and adds the all important authenticity.
Maggie finds herself up against a really brutal killer and again the author does not hold back in her descriptions of crimes and crime scenes. The series as a whole really stands out in the genre for tackling hard hitting issues.
I cannot wait for the next one.
