He watches. He waits. He strikes.
DI Helena Stratton has been through the wars on a previous case—torture that has scarred her for life, gifting her with nightmares. This new one is no different. On top of that…
A partner she can’t stand. DS Andy Mald needs to buck his ideas up.
A boyfriend she’s just ditched. Or is he a stalker?
A triple murder. Who is doing such hideous things to the bodies?
Someone out there knows.
And he’s desperate to be the man in the house.
The Man In The House is the first book in a brand new crime series featuring DI Helena Stratton and what a start!
I wasn’t to sure what to make of Helena to start with. She isn’t liking working with Andy, her partner, having a few issues with him. As the story goes along though and I got to know her better as well as her working relationship with Andy, it wasn’t long before I really got to enjoy her character.
The case itself had me gripped as I wanted to know more, especially about the killer. The authors weren’t giving anything away though and I loved the shocks and surprises as they came at me. Not only does it have Helena and her team on their toes, it had me on the edge of my seat also.
The Man In The House is an enthralling and nail biter of a read. The authors’ writing style has you turning those pages and fully engrossed in the story. The murders are gruesome and oh so thrilling. Can’t wait for more in the series.
My thanks to the authors’ for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
