Captivating and thrilling the twists kept coming… leaving me hanging onto every word rapidly turning pages hungry for more, reading late in to the night… Go and buy this book you won’t regret it! Bonnie’s Book Talk, 5 stars

 

When a young woman’s body found hanging upside-down from a crucifix in an abandoned church, Detective Lucy Harwin is plunged into a case that will test her to her very limits.

 

Before Lucy even has time to get started, another body is found. And this time it’s someone Lucy and her team consider one of their own; the chief’s mother. Her body too is hanging upside-down, so Lucy fears there’s a serial killer stalking the streets of her small coastal town.

 

Lucy knows the chief is a good man. She trusts him, but can’t pin down his alibi. Just as she’s beginning to suspect the worst, she pushes for a test on some animal hairs, and uncovers a link to an old unsolved murder.

 

Lucy knows she’s getting close, and works around the clock to catch this killer before he strikes again. But then the trail leads her to the church where her teenage daughter volunteers. Can Lucy prevent a tragedy that will tear her world apart again?

 

An addictive and unputdownable crime thriller that will hook fans of Patricia Gibney, LJ Ross and Angela Marsons from the very first page.

The characters are well enough developed so you remember who they are as you read and find yourself liking or disliking them based on the author's insights and descriptions of human nature. Definitely suspenseful, keeping you guessing who-dunnit till close to the end. Mostly I thought the storyline well-written for its genre. On the negative side, there were a number of sloppy grammatical errors which jarred my concentration on the story & made me think less of the work as a whole.
