Many thanks to Anne Cater and Random Things Tours for my spot on this Blog Tour.
Second book in the series, but first of mine, the book featured a braveheart DC Constance Fairchild who was back home just to stumble upon a badly mutilated boy, barely breathing. Soon embroiled in the investigation, her discoveries led to roads unknown and facts anew.
My first book by James Oswald, the suspense soon built up slowly as pages turned. The book was written with great precision with Con as the center stage, who attracted trouble which helped her to solve the difficult crime. The other characters too played their part and were quite beguiling. PC Karen Eve and Madam Rose, especially.
The author linked the crimes dramatically, bringing it close to home, and Con soon had a fight on her hands. I didn’t like her much, I hoped she would investigate more zealously. But she managed to get the job done. Breaking free of rules and shackles, it was Con who led the book to a dramatic finish.
Overall, a good read.
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.
All my reviews can be read here
Suspended from duty after her last case ended in the high-profile arrest of one of Britain’s wealthiest men, DC Constance Fairchild is trying to stay away from the limelight. Fate has other ideas . . .
Coming home to her London flat, Constance stumbles across a young man, bloodied, mutilated and barely alive. She calls it in and is quickly thrown into the middle of a nationwide investigation . . . It seems that the victim is just the latest in a string of similar ritualistic attacks.
No matter that she is off-duty, no matter that there are those in the Met who would gladly see the back of her, Con can’t shake her innate determination to bring the monsters responsible for this brutality to justice.
Trouble always seems to find her, and even if she has nothing to hide, perhaps she has everything to lose . . .
