This is the second thrilling installment for DI Kelly Porter and is just as exciting as the first. When a spate of gruesome murders take place with a very unique calling card, it is up to DI Porter and her team to track down the culprit and prevent them from striking again. When someone close to Kelly becomes the possible next victim it is a race against time, time Kelly does not have.
Following on a few months after “Dark Game”, Kelly and her team have just settled back to normalcy when the nightmare begins all over again. The same characters are back, as well as some new ones. Nikki is still causing problems and it’s troubled water for Kelly and Johnny.
The suspect list is high and there is at least one unanswered question, which as I write this is bugging me more and more, but there are plenty of twist, turns and dead-ends to keep the story fresh and moving.
I love the descriptions of the views. Ok, they are generally when someone is about to find a victim but I can still picture the sweeping hills, rocky terrain and deep valleys of the area. Living somewhere completely flat I sometimes wish we had a little more elevation, which is why it is so nice to find some beautifully descriptive landscapes in this book.
Although the murders are not graphically described there are sections, finding the bodies and the morgue scenes, that some readers may find unsettling. However, these scenes are essential for the overall story and add to evil, psychotic tendencies of the antagonist.
Thrills, chills and hills make up the exciting continuation of the DI Kelly Porter series.
DI Kelly Porter is back.
But will this new case push her beyond her limits?
On a peaceful summer’s morning in the Lake District, a woman’s body is discovered outside a church. She’s been murdered and a brutal, symbolic act performed on her corpse.
DI Kelly Porter is in charge of the team investigating the crime, and is determined to bring the killer to justice. But as more deaths occur it is clear this is the work of a disturbed, dangerous and determined individual. Can Kelly put the puzzle pieces together before the danger comes closer to home?
