YOU CAN RUN FROM YOUR PAST. BUT YOU CAN’T RUN FROM MURDER.
The body is found by the river, near a spot popular with runners.
With a serial rapist at work in the area, DI Zigic and DS Ferreira are initially confused when the Hate Crimes Unit is summoned to the scene. Until they discover that the victim, Corinne Sawyer, was born Colin Sawyer.
Police records reveal there have been violent attacks on trans women in the local area. Was Corinne a victim of mistaken identity? Or has the person who has been targeting trans women stepped up their campaign of violence? With tensions running high, and the force coming under national scrutiny, this is a complex case and any mistake made could be fatal…
Even though Watch Her Disappear is the fourth book in the Zigic and Ferreira series, they all read easily as stand alone’s, but as it’s a great series I would definitely recommend reading them all.
The author has yet again come up with a gripping case for the detectives to work on. As stated in the description, this is certainly a complex case and nothing is straight forward, which makes things even harder for the two detectives.
There was something quite chilling about the whole story line. I’m not sure if was to do with the type of crime it was but what was happening to the trans women in the story really got to me. In part some of it was quite upsetting and uncomfortable to read but I think that’s what made this novel even more compelling.
Watch Her Disappear is quite an atmospheric read that really gets under the readers skin. The author has a way of writing that just draws the reader in and doesn’t let go until the very end. This is a brilliant series that lovers of crime really should read.
My thanks to the publisher for a copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
Goodreads rating 4/5 stars.
