A young student is kidnapped on her way home from the pub, but her nightmare is just beginning…DI Damen Brook is assigned the case but starts to realise that this might not be an isolated incident. With very little to go on, Brook trawls through the murky world of cheap labour and prostitution but comes up against a brick wall. But then bodies start turning up and the case is blown wide open. Who is kidnapping these girls and why? Brook has to put the pieces together before the next victim is taken…
A Killing Moon is the fifth book in the DI Damen Brook series and wow what a book.
I am a huge fan of this series and for me, even though all the books in the series are 5 star reads to me, A Killing Moon like The Disciple, pushes past the 5 star mark. If I could reward it more I certainly would do.
In A Killing Moon Brook is assigned a missing persons case. It’s not long before Brook realises that there is a lot more to this case than first meets the eye and before you know it he is investigating the disappearance of a number of young women.
The author has yet again done a fantastic job with this book, he draws you in straight from the off and doesn’t let go. I would say the last twenty percent of the story is some of the most chilling and gruesomest work to date by Steven. I literally could not turn (or in my case tap) the pages fast enough. There were so many twists at the end that I was literally shouting at my kindle in shock. My heart was literally racing by the end.
If you haven’t read any of Steven Dunne’s books I can’t begin to tell you how much your missing out. This is one crime thriller series you DO NOT want to miss!
Thanks to Headline and Netgalley for an Advanced Readers Copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
