Read my review of the previous book in the series – Lost Souls
HER PARTNER. HER SON. SHE’S NEXT.
Hannah Thomas returns home one morning to every mother’s worst nightmare: a missing child and a dead fiancé. When DI Gaby Darin questions her, Hannah insists she can’t think of anyone who’d want to hurt her family – and yet it all feels disturbingly personal.
But when Gaby stumbles upon Hannah’s tragic secret, it doesn’t bring her any closer to the truth. Can she connect the dots before the killer strikes again?
Mere hours into the investigation, a second body is found. As Gaby and her team dig into the victims’ lives, they hit dead ends at every turn – particularly when it comes to Hannah’s past. What is the grieving woman hiding?
My thoughts: I was involved in the cover reveal for this book so I was already looking forward to, and having gone and read all of the previous books in the series, I was sure I wouldn’t be let down.
The deaths of both Hannah’s son and partner are horrific, brutal and tragic, but whoever killed them isn’t done with Hannah yet. Something must have sparked this campaign of hate but what? Hannah doesn’t have any family, and there’s only one incident in her past that might make someone come after her.
As Gaby and the team prepare for Amy’s wedding, they must work quickly to solve the case and find a dangerous person with revenge in mind.
Fast paced, gripping and very clever, this is one of those books that keeps you guessing, there’s red herrings a plenty and a lot of digging needed to locate the truth. But can they get there in time? I’m not telling!
