A murdered woman…
When the body of a young woman is found in a local park, DC Maggie Jamieson knows she’s dealing with no ordinary killer. The murder victim has been disfigured; her outfit changed to resemble someone else. Someone Maggie knows all too well…her close friend Dr Kate Moloney.
A determined detective…
Maggie is determined to keep her friend safe, but with Kate already struggling with a threatening stalker, Maggie now fears Kate’s life is in real danger. Who else would want to harm Kate and why else would the killer be turning his victims into exact replicas – his living dolls?
Can Maggie find the depraved killer? Or will Kate become his next living doll?
After how Dead Wrong ended, the second book in the series, I have been desperate to read this one. Am pleased to say it did not disappoint and has been well worth the wait.
Maggie and Kate are both professionals whose career paths meant that they have come into contact of which the two women have formed a good friendship so far in the series. Maggie has good reason to be concerned about her friend and she is determined to catch Kate’s stalker. Sadly finding out just who it is proves to not be that easy. The relationship between Kate and Maggie does throw up some questions which also had me eager to see just what direction the author would take it in.
This is an author who brings her characters to life. I loved the relationships between them all in Maggie’s personal life as well as in her working one. You get to really care about them and I could feel the tension inside of me build as things start to take a very sinister course. With the attention being on Kate, it allows us to get to know her better as well as some of the others in the team. Kat is one in particular I love and she sure knows how to steal the lime light when she appears with her straight talking, no nonsense, personality. I love her!
The story is woven in such a way that you think you have it all solved with those pesky red herrings that are left pointing you in the wrong direction so that when the truth comes out, I was like what the actual ****!
Dead Perfect is a book in a great crime series that just keeps getting better and better. Yet again the author ends the story in such a way that I am counting the days and hours until the next one is released. The crimes and murders make this a book and series that make for a nail-biting yet exhilarating reading experience that keeps me hooked. If you haven’t read any yet, then you really should.
