About this ebook

One girl found dead. Another girl gone...


Long shadows danced on the tin walls. Inside the trunk lay Carrie Miller, wrapped in plastic, arms folded across her ribcage, lips sealed tight forever.


When, a girl’s body is found at a Midlands storage unit, it is too decomposed for Detective Robyn Carter to read the signs left by the killer.


No one knows the woman in blue who rented the unit; her hire van can’t be traced. But as the leads run dry another body is uncovered. This time the killer’s distinctive mark is plain to see, and matching scratches on the first victim’s skeleton make Robyn suspect she’s searching for a serial killer.


As Robyn closes in on the killer’s shocking hunting ground, another girl goes missing, and this time it’s someone close to her own heart.


Robyn can’t lose another loved one. Can she find the sickest individual she has ever faced, before it’s too late?


An utterly gripping and darkly compelling detective thriller that will have fans of Robert Dugoni, Angela Marsons and James Patterson hooked from the very start. You will not guess the ending!

Metza metza I almost stopped reading she spent so much time reminiscing about the dead guy and how she was just not as good with out him, bla bla bla. I just kept thinking enough about the dead guy, it really spoiled the book for me. That and she seemed a lot dumber in this one. If had wanted to read a book about grief 8 wouldn't have bought a mystery.

I enjoyed this book but took my time reading it. DI Carter doesn't disappoint and I didn't see the twist coming although I did spot the connection fairly easily. The character development was good although the memories of Davies don't seem that relevant all is revealed at the end. In all another great can't wait for the next.

A main part of the killer's repetoire wasn't addressed towards the end. Not wanting to give anything away but the 'rectangular' items were left unexplained as to why the killer took them. The actual killer's motive just didn't marry up with the trophy taking. Left me feeling a bit flat.
