DI Robyn Carter and her team are up against the clock in this latest thriller by Carol Wyer.
Robyn’s expertise are called upon when a young girls body is found during a drugs raid on a warehouse. When a second body is found, Robyn believes that the girls may have been killed by the same person despite the difference in circumstances. With links on social media, online dating sites and train stations connecting the girls, the team have to work overtime to cover all areas and narrow down the list of suspects.
When Amélie’s best friend, Florence, starts exhibiting unusual behaviour, Amélie looks to Robyn for guidance but is it just teenage hormones or is there something more going on? Robyn needs to find their killer before one more young life is wiped out.
On top of everything, Robyn is thrown into turmoil when she receives a surprise package. Is someone playing a trick on her or has she been lied too?
Due to the content of the story I found it interesting to listen to, mainly because I could relate it to having two teenagers of my own. Admittedly they are both boys, however they are regularly attached to devices, normally with headphones, and as a parent there is a fine line between needing to know what they are watching and who they are talking to whilst still allowing them independence and privacy.
This is a very well-written, hard-hitting story about the consequences of our actions and the affect social media and online-sites can have on our lives.
Listened to via Audible. Narrated by Emma Newman.
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?
