DCI Helen Grace is the youngest female officer to be promoted so far up the chain in the Southampton Force, but will it help her get to the killer who is abducting couples and giving them the choice to kill or be killed? A gritty, gripping and taut crime thriller chronicling the killings of a rare type of serial killer.

Helen Grace is well written as a self-tortured but ambitious senior officer who makes mistakes and has a past that slowly emerges during this first book. Not for the faint-hearted and definitely a series I hope to keep up with.
