Prey by Roy Chester @JoffeBooks


Book Description:


Time to say your prayers . . . a psycho serial killer with a grudge is on the loose and now even criminal profiler Dr Hannah Nightingale is being hunted down.

A rabbi is found murdered. Someone has carved a religious symbol into his flesh and driven a lance through his heart. The way the killing is staged leaves criminal profiler Dr Hannah Nightingale certain that a fanatic is on the loose. More religious leaders are coming to Garton for a high-profile conference, so Nightingale and Detective David Mallory and DCI Gary Falcon face a nightmare situation. One by one, the devout will die in bizarre and disturbing ways. Is the killer on a mission to attack all faiths and to promote dark and devilish forces?

Can criminal profiler Dr Hannah Nightingale stop an evil serial killer who is brutally slaying religious leaders? What happens when the killer comes after her?

Three people come under suspicion: a vicar who is in crisis; a student who has suffered a miserable childhood at the hands of his fanatical father; and an embittered young actress. And is the killer part of a shadowy sect pursuing an object they believe is of immense power? You will enjoy weighing the evidence and seeing if you can beat the detectives to the solution of this complex case.

Criminal profiler Hannah Nightingale must race against time to uncover the real killer, and she will face danger that puts her own life at risk in a heart-stopping ending.

My Thoughts:

Prey is the third book in the Dr Hannah Nightingale series and another edge of your seat read.

I have to admit I have a bit of a fascination when it comes to anything religious. It usually makes for some really intriguing reading. The case that Hannah and Mallory find themselves working on is certainly anything but straight forward. I enjoyed reading and learning as the lead characters have to investigate different parts to do with religious symbols and artefacts

There are definitely some twists and turns as like the police, we lean towards different suspects. When all becomes clear just who is behind it all, well you could have knocked me over with a feather. It then becomes a race against time to stop them and oh boy that ending! Will definitely keep you on your toes.

Prey is another nail biting, page turner of a read. The build up towards the end was almost electrifying and it’s left me desperate to see what happens next after getting a bit of a taster at the end of what happens in the next book. A solid and dependable crime series.

Prey is available to purchase from Amazon. (Please note that link used is an affiliate link).
