He’s your attacker.He’s a murderer.He’s your twin.
When DI Dani Stephens returns to work after an attack that almost ended her life, she’s quickly plunged into a horrific new case, as dead bodies are discovered on the streets of Birmingham.
But with no link between the victims, Dani has to get inside the killer’s mind – so turns to the murderer she knows best. Her own twin brother…
But what makes a psychopath? Can understanding her twin help her find a murderer who leaves no trace? As the circle closes on Dani, the clock is ticking and she needs a breakthrough – before she becomes the latest victim.
A heart-stopping crime thriller that fans of Peter James and Mark Billingham won’t be able to put down.
I’ve been a bit of a fan of this authors books for awhile now, more so his James Ryker series. I have to say after reading the first book in the DI Dani Stephens series, I am really enjoying this darker side to his work.
Like most main protagonists in a crime series, Dani has her own demons to bear and boy what demons they are! I have a feeling there is more to come in the way of her twin brother. Well I’m really hoping so anyway. That could be a novel in itself I’m sure.
The case that Dani and her colleague Jason are working on gets so much darker. This story focuses a lot on serial killers. A crime lovers paradise. Like Dani, I wanted to get in their mind and see what makes them tick. I also enjoyed the relationship between both Dani and Jason and am interested to see where things go with both of them.
The Essence Of Evil is a great start to a new series. The story starts off at a steady pace increasing the more into the story the reader gets. The last part of the novel had me racing through as it well and truly had me gripped and there were shocks and surprises galore. This is such a promising start and I really can not wait for more in the series.
My thanks to Canelo & Hera Books as well as NetGalley for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
