When a commuter discovers a mutilated corpse on the Prague Metro, Captain Jiri Hofschnadir of the Criminal Police is called in to investigate.
Meanwhile, in Hong Kong, newly-weds ex British cop Lawrence James and forensic psychologist, Jessie Sandersen are on honeymoon after their frantic efforts to capture the Australian serial killer known as The Dingo.
But wherever James and Sandersen go, trouble is never far behind.
As the body count rises in Prague, Sandersen is called in to help track down the serial killer dubbed The Dark Angel.
In a game of cat and mouse, James and Sandersen will be pushed to their very limits.
But can they catch The Dark Angel before it’s too late?
Dark Angel is another fast paced read by the author that has you travelling far and wide. With locations such as Hong Kong, Australia and Prague, you really get a feel for the places the author transports you to, especially the hustle and bustle of Prague.
As with The Hunt For The Dingo, the chapters are short and ensures you keep turning those pages. Due to some of the nature of the story line, I would recommend reading these books in order as I do feel if you haven’t read the first book, you may feel like you are missing out on some of the background from it.
I love a serial killer, who doesn’t? At the end of some of the chapters, we get inside the head of the Dark Angel and boy is it a very dark place to be indeed. It was great though to see their point of view on things and makes us understand better in how they tick.
Dark Angel is a book that you have to keep your wits about you at all times. It is fast paced and bounces back and forth between different countries and the different characters. Don’t let this put you off though as it works well. With plenty of action throughout, it ensure the reader will be racing through the pages to see what the out come will be.
My thanks to Bloodhound Books and NetGalley for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
Dark Angel is available to purchase from Amazon. (Please note that link used is an affiliate link)
P.J Nash was born in Nuneaton, Warwickshire, the birthplace of George Eliot and Shakespeare, respectively. Not surprisingly he decided he’d like to be a writer too.
After studying history and working in PR for a few years, he was running a second hand bookshop, when wanderlust and destiny in the form of his future wife took him to Prague.
During his time behind the counter in the shop and travelling on trams between English lessons he wrote his first crime novel, The Hunt for the Dingo featuring maverick British expat cop , Lawrence James and and his hunt for a serial killer in Australia. On his return to the UK, he drew on his Bohemian adventures to write his second crime novel featuring Lawrence James and his co-investigator, Dr Jessie Sandersen. He currently lives on a narrowboat with his wife Clare and grumpy cat, Lulu.
In his past life P.J. Nash was a Special Constable for the Warkwickshire police.
