About this deal

The story, while gruesome in places, rattles along at a good pace and has a few twists and turns to hold one’s interest. This time they are out to catch a sadistic killer who has already killed at least twice, but probably there are more bodies to find! Born in Edinburgh to an English father and Scottish mother the family settled in a Pennine village between the counties of Lancashire and Yorkshire.

We have suspicious deaths, it starts with a woman's body being found in the back of a car after a road traffic accident involving a pile up, however, its not all straight forward and more deaths are revealed along the way.mostly person with a man she's been dating who is having a real hard time being delegated to third place, after her job and her stress-relieving bird watching. A bit too much focus on the main protagonists love lives perhaps, which occasionally affects their work. He claims to have absolutely no idea what he's doing with his love life when in reality its down to him making asinine choices and then not being able to own up to them. This starts with two cases the first a missing child and the second a body found at the scene of a road accident that forensics said was dead prior to crash.

While I enjoyed this book and I think it was not quite as strong as the first, it wasn't enough to deduct a star.None of the other characters are particularly well drawn but they don't need to be because this is a plot driven novel. good mystery, excellent police work, believable characters, the little personal nuances that make the characters come alive on the paper. All this and a missing child and mysterious, horribly tortured body found at the scene of an auto accident. I'm confused by her choice of very similar titles and without some kind of guidance I seem to be always picking a book in the middle of a series. In his efforts to create out his fantasies he befriends similar looking young woman and murders them when they don’t meet his vision of his ideal woman.

Although, if you look at how many are in the series, I'm sure you can figure out how it ends for at least one character. As I mentioned above, figuring out the who and the where was easier for me than in some of the other books, but the why I struggled with more. A notorious gang leader and Tom’s cousin Ray Fallon makes an appearance at the funeral and puts on quite a show.I would much prefer for the author and the publisher to put a warning on the cover that this story is part of a series and not a complete ‘stand alone’ novel.
