For detective Geraldine Steele it is a race against time to find the killer as two more bodies are found. A gripping psychological thriller introducing Geraldine Steel, a woman whose past is threatening to collide with her future.
Read an excerpt:
This is a super quick read- I finished it in one sitting! I have a weakness for British police proceedurals, I have to admit (!!), so no surprise I had to review this one! I am pleased to see the emergence of strong female leads in them as well! What I loved about this book, was that Geraldine was human- her personal woes were ones that anyone could understand and relate to. This helped to make her more reachable to the reader. The mystery is interesting, in that you alternate between the killer and Geraldine's view points, and the author adds in viewpoints from other characters, to give you the varying perspectives of what is going on in the story. Seeing how the 6 degrees of separation theory worked in this story was an interesting twist, and made for a very enjoyable read! I highly recommend it!
