A Compelling Psychological Thriller Novel.
In this fast-moving suspense novel, Detective Adam Stanley searches for Miles Muldoon, a hardworking, career-minded businessman, and Pinevale’s latest serial killer.
Evidence puts Muldoon at each scene giving the police a prima facie case against him.
But as the body count rises, and their suspect begins taunting them, this seemingly simple case develops into something far more personal when Muldoon turns his attention to Adam and his family.
I’ve read all of the books in the Adam Stanley series and enjoyed every one of them.
There is a lot of background surrounding Amanda’s character which the author does a good job of mentioning it in the book, so for any readers that are new to the series, they shouldn’t have a problem keeping up but obviously I recommend reading them all as they are good books.
Out of all the books in the series this one has to the most edge of your seat read. There are murders, quite a lot in fact and very brutal ones at that. Not only is it very much a race against time to try and stop the killer, Adam also has the worry of having the murderer seemingly targeting him and his family. For Adam this case is very personal with it affecting him. I think this gave the whole story a more thrilling feel to it and not only did it have me on the edge of my seat, I nearly fell off it!
It was good to catch up with Adam and Amanda again as they are such a lovely couple and they haven’t had it very easy. They have a lot going on in their personal lives as well as Adams job in the police force. There felt like a bit more of procedural work going on which I really enjoyed and Adam came across like being a bit like Columbo in how he eventually works everything out.
I had worked out a certain aspect of the story quite early on in the story but when it came to revealing who the actual murderer was it still very much came as a shock.
Another great read in a really good crime series that had my heart literally racing towards the end.
My thanks to the author for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Goodreads rating 4/5 stars.
