Can a group of true crime addicts take on the police to catch a serial killer?
A young woman is found dead in her bedroom surrounded by rose petals – the latest victim of ‘The Lover’. Struggling under the weight of an internal investigation, DI Dominic Bell is no closer to discovering the identity of the killer and time is running out.
As the murders escalate, Clementine Starke joins an online true crime group determined to take justice in to their own hands – to catch the killer before the police. Hiding a dark secret, she takes greater risks to find new evidence and infiltrate the group.
As Starke and Bell get closer to cracking the case neither of them realise they’re being watched. The killer is closer to them than they think, and he has his next victim – Clementine – firmly in his sights.
This is quite a refreshing change to the usual run of the mill crime thrillers. An online vigilante group that make it their mission to catch the killer before the police do. Each member goes under a code name so they don’t know each other identities.
Clementine is intrigued by the on line group and the people in it. She isn’t quite sure what she will be able to learn by hanging out around where the latest victim was killed but she is determined to get something to make herself stand out to the other members. She appears to be fighting her own demons from an event in her past and I was as interested in finding out more about her as I was with who was behind the killings.
Dom was a really interesting DI. He felt different to the usual ones you come across in crime books. I liked how the story flicks between him and Clementine and couldn’t wait to see how things were going to pan out for them both.
My Little Eye is definitely a page turner of a read that had me hooked through out. The tension and suspense of who the killer is builds nicely and leads to a breath holding ending. This is the first book in the series and the ending certainly leaves you wanting more. Great read.
