How can you be saved when no one knows you’re lost?
No one knew about the Puppet Maker… Until DI Brady found what remained of his victims.
The murderer never meant them to be found. They are his private collection: each body identical, each… altered.
Brady knows that now his secret is out, the killer will destroy the evidence – including his latest captive. He must find a man who has hidden the worst of crimes for over twenty years. And whose nameless victims were never even missed…
Even though this is the 5th book in the series, as I haven’t read any of the others in the series, it can easily be read as a stand alone. Saying that, as I enjoyed it so much, I certainly will be going back now and reading the rest.
Brady I took to straight away. He is deep and broody, everything I want from a fictional detective. The case him and his team are working on is very much a horrific one as well as being a race against time to solve it before the killer strikes again.
Holy Moly this is one gripping story line. I totally loved it! The Puppet Maker is one seriously sick and twisted individual. You know what though, he really makes this book. As a lover of crime thrillers, you have got to have a love/hate relationship with the baddy and you seriously will with this one. You love him because he is so bad which makes the story addictive almost but you hate what he does to the victims as it is just down right wrong as well as horrific. Definitely a rememberable villain.
The Puppet Master is my first introduction to this author and certainly won’t be the last. This is a fast paced, adrenaline fuelled type of read. I was literally on tender hooks all the way through and when the story picked up even more pace towards the end, I didn’t know if my heart could take it. With an outcome that I didn’t see coming, I literally could not get enough. Absolutely loved it!
My thanks to the author for a copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
Goodreads rating 5/5 stars.
