A pulse racing read!
At first, nobody believed her…
Penguin Books Australia
The girl emerged from the woods. Traumatised and emaciated; close to death, but alive. Her story seemed too terrible to be true. But it was. Every dreadful word of it.
When, days later, another desperate survivor is found, a pattern becomes clear. Pairs of victims are being taken; then forced to make an unthinkable decision.
And for DCI Helen Grace there is now an unseen killer to be hunted down.
Haunted by her own past, Grace has faced down her own demons to rise to the top of her profession. She has coping mechanisms. Now though, there’s a new monster to confront. And unless she succeeds, more innocents will die.
But worse, some will survive, and have to live with the choice that they made . . .
I really enjoyed this fast paced, action packed, murder filled police procedural. The narrative is twisted, bizarre and compelling. The subplot is horrific and disturbing. The protagonist is a strong, feisty and a flawed woman; a mystery to all those around her. Interesting characters, a unique plot, bold and disturbing crimes, what more could you ask for?
This is a book that once you start you CANNOT put down. I can see this on the big screen soon.
