This is book 2 in the new Lennox and Wilde series by Helen Durrant but they would work fine as stand alone although you may miss some of the back story to Harry Lennox if you haven’t read book 1.
The story begins with a teenager, Dean, who has stumbled upon a murder list and decides to blackmail the murderer. It was never going to end well and it doesn’t. As Harry and Jess start to investigate his murder they find that Dean was very meticulous and he has everything well documented and a wall of victims and potential suspects. So finding the killer should be easy shouldn’t it? The problem is one of Dean’s laptops and his mobile phone are missing. Harry and Jess are up against time to try to identify the killer and the faceless man before anyone else dies.
The team are up against a killer who is very organised and forensically aware, a lot of missing info and many secrets. Will they crack the case before it is too late?
This book grabs you from the very first page and doesn’t let go. It is a very gripping story full of intrigue and plenty of shocks especially the ending. I devoured every page.
The characters are developing well and I love the mystery to Harry it adds another dimension to the book that has the reader pacing the floor waiting for the next installment.
A fantastic read I cant wait for the next book. Definitely 5 stars from me.
