I chose this book to read from Rosie Amber’s Book Review Team book list.
Ella Mallory a young theatre nurse who lives in Guilford, she is shocked and appalled by the recent local rape and murders of a number of women. However, her boyfriend Michael, who is a police constable leads her to see some links between the women and subsequently she suspects Liam, a colleague she works with and then mysterious new tenant, Tim as possible culprits. But what Ella doesn’t know is she is in grave danger…
I enjoyed reading this crime/suspense/mystery thriller, which is a stand alone thriller despite being part of a series, but I did not find a convincing psychological aspect to the story and as such it lacked that sharp sense of fear and anticipation I associate with a good psychological thriller. I found myself urging Ella to stop at various times during the book as she seemed to make the most awful judgments in terms of the men in her life.
I did predict the ending but the climactic end to the book was exciting to read in this fast paced crime thriller.
