EDGE-OF-YOUR-SEAT SUSPENSE WITH ONE TWIST AFTER ANOTHER.
Mary’s in the shower after a long day’s work when the lights go out. Her phone screen flashes in the dark. The text is from an unknown number:
‘You’re not alone in this room.’
When she wakes, her head is pounding and there’s a churning in the pit of her stomach. She’s lying naked on the cold hard floor of a room she’s never seen before. The door is locked.
There’s a deep cut across her thigh. The key to the door is sewn into her flesh. It’s the only way out of this room.
Detective April Fisher must race against time to catch a killer in a sick game of cat and mouse.
This brand-new, electrifying crime thriller packed with twist after shocking twist is perfect for fans of Charlie Gallagher, Angela Marsons, Rachel Abbott, D.S. Butler and Chris Carter.

MEET THE DETECTIVE
Thirty-four-year-old Detective Sergeant April Fisher needs to be tough. She’s seen too much out on the streets of Manchester to be any other way. And she’s experienced more than her share of tragedy in her personal life too. But she takes this all in her stride and keeps her head high, ready to tackle whatever is thrown at her — and there’s been a lot. She’s hardworking, focused and intelligent, but she has a tendency to make rash decisions without thinking about the consequences, which often gets her in trouble.

This is a gripping crime thriller, although book 2 in the series it worked perfectly as stand alone (I haven’t read book 1)
People are disappearing from their homes, but they are adults and the Police are limited in what they can do. Then body parts turn up and all of a sudden the Police are in a race against time to find a link between the victims and work out who and why is behind the murders. The only evidence at the scenes is a photograph of a schoolboy. What does he have to do with the murders? As the mystery unfolds it becomes clear some people are evil.
A gripping read that was adrenaline pumping in parts and intriguing in others. It kept the pages turning all the way through. However, I did find that parts of it just didn’t work for me and it didn’t flow as well as it could have. That may be just my thoughts though.
Overall a good book that will appeal to anyone who likes gritty detective books.
Thank you to Joffe Books and the author for the advance digital copy of this book. These are my unbiased thoughts.
Chris was born in Darlington, North East of England. He loves spending time with his family which include his three sons. He enjoys walking on the beach, listening to music, going for the occasional run to keep fit, playing football, and coaching his son’s football team.
When he’s not at work and at home, he loves reading (crime), watching engineering and construction programs (he loves how things methodically fit together), likes to immerse himself in horror / supernatural films and series which make the hairs on his neck stand on end, satisfying his strange fixation for unusual escapism, and possesses a disturbing obsession with drinking far too much coffee to feed his writing habits.
