Josie Quinn is forced to investigate her colleague Gretchen when a man is shot and she disappears. What link is there to a spate of murders by a serial killer who seems to be killing again…?
It becomes clear that Gretchen’s past is key to solving all of the murders but when she hands herself in to the police she admits responsibility and refuses to explain further. Josie is determined to find out the truth and uncover the real killer so that she can free her friend and stop further murders.
This book makes several references to the previous 3 books in the series which I have not read. This didn’t spoil my enjoyment of the book but did make me want to catch up on what I’d missed!
There is a personal side to the book as Josie and her partner Noel attempt to begin a relationship but are often thwarted by the case. There is also the developing relationship between Josie and her recently discovered twin.
The interspersed flashbacks to murders in the 90s increased my interest in the present day case as I tried to work out how they were linked. The murders were not graphically described and each one stopped at the point that the murderer revealed his presence. This left a feeling of foreboding and up to the imagination of the reader.
I really enjoyed this book and Josie is a great lead character. There were twists right up to the end and I look forward to reading the rest of the series…
