MEET DETECTIVE RACHEL KING IN THIS BRILLIANT CRIME SERIES.
A brand-new mystery from #1 bestselling author Helen H. Durrant that will have you gripped from start to pulsating finish.
After three months off, a gruesome murder throws Detective Rachel King back into the thick of it. But can she cope? The pressures of the job and of being a single mum are taking their toll.
It’s a horrifying sight. The body of an elderly woman is carefully posed on the altar. There’s gaffer tape over her mouth, her hands are crossed over her chest, tied together with white ribbon. A single white rose is placed between her fingers.
The victim is quickly identified as Mary Dunn, whose turn it was to arrange the church flowers. Everyone loved Mary. She wouldn’t harm a fly. Who would want to kill her?
Then forensic evidence produces a shocking result: a link to the Slasher, a notorious serial killer who stalked the streets of Manchester fifteen years before. But the Slasher was murdered in prison — so how come his DNA is found on Mary’s clothing?
Does Detective Rachel King have a serial killer on her patch? One who’s back from the dead . . .
A MYSTERY FULL OF STUNNING TWISTS WHICH YOU WON’T WANT TO PUT DOWN.
Perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Rachel McLean, Kimberley Chambers, Damien Boyd, Rachel Abbott, Patricia Gibney, D.S. Butler or Mark Billingham.

DCI Rachel King. Mother of two teenage daughters and a toddler son. Divorced from Alan. She lives in the Cheshire village of Poynton — about ten miles from central Manchester. She is good at her job, gets results but can occasionally make mistakes. One of them was getting involved with a budding villain in her teens. A decision which continues to haunt her.
DCI Rachel King is returning to work after a few months hidden away at a remote cottage recovering from a case that was traumatic on a personal and work level. However, she is hoping for a quiet time to ease back in to the job as she is feeling far from confident. That is not to be. An elderly woman is found dead in a Church and Rachel and her team are thrown into the thick of it trying to solve one of the hardest cases ever. Their job is made no easier by the obstacles that are put in their path.
As always with Helen’s books this is an adrenaline pumping read that grips the reader from the first page and doesn’t let go. Suspense in bucketloads especially when work and personal lives get intertwined.
It was nice to catch up with the characters we know from old and also some new ones. Good to see the author constantly developing the characters and their lives so that they bring something to the story.
An absolutely brilliant read that will appeal to anyone who loves detective stories or any kind of crime fiction.
