Day 2 of my Detective Kate Hamblin blogs and today it is Book 2: REVENGE ON THE LEVELS

Revenge on the Levels (Kate Hamblin #2)

Buy from AMAZON

TWISTER IS BACK AND HE WANTS REVENGE.

Two years ago psychotic undertaker Larry “Twister” Wadman disappeared after blasting two police detectives to death with an incendiary device and embarking on a murderous rampage across the Somerset Levels.

For most, memories have dulled, but the sole survivor of the carnage, Detective Kate Hamblin, cannot forget.

Then a prostitute’s body is found dumped in a coffin in Twister’s now derelict funeral parlor, dressed in a police uniform. 

Kate realizes that her old enemy is back, and out to get her.

A massive murder hunt is launched and it becomes evident that the deranged killer is in no hurry to make his move. He wants to have some fun first — and Twister’s idea of fun is the last thing Kate or any sane person would wish for.

A RACE AGAINST TIME TO STOP A PSYCHOTIC KILLER WITH A VENDETTA AGAINST HER.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS BOOK WAS ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED AS REQUIEM

My Review

This is book 2 in the ‘Levels’ series it should work as stand-alone but I think you would be better reading book 1 first.
 
Kate Hamblin .is picking up the pieces of her life after Twister tried many times to kill her.  A call comes in of a break in at the funeral directors which was Twisters home.  What they found there shocks Kate to her very core.  Twister is back to finish what he started Kate’s life is in danger again.
 
The characters continue to develop and new ones are introduced following the retirement of Callow.  Sharpe takes more of a main part in this book as we learn what a slimey trouble causer he is.
 
As the team try to track down Twister a psychologist is brought in to profile the killer and help the police.
 
Relationships under pressure, dead ends and twists and turns kept the pages turning.
 
I did work out who Twister was early on but I had to keep reading to see if I was right.  There were several parts that didn’t quite work for me but overall it was a very good read.
