Can you see a killer before it’s too late?
On the first day of her new job, D.I. Eva Harris is called to the scene of a brutal murder at the heart of Surrey society. A shocking crime by a meticulous killer – who escaped with the victim’s eyes.
With the body drained of blood and no forensic evidence left at the scene, Harris’ efforts to find the killer becomes desperate. But as her investigation is complicated by corruption at the heart of the police, she doesn’t know who to trust on her own team.
As the pressure mounts, Eva realises the murder is even more horrific than it seems, and her own dreadful history threatens to be drawn out with it…
A dark and compulsive detective novel, for fans of Chris Carter and M.W Craven.
D.I. Eva Harris has more lives than a cat. Seriously, danger follows this woman around every corner!
This is one action packed read. Probably not for the feint hearted of readers but boy, if you want thrills and chills by the bucket load then you seriously can’t go wrong with this book. So many scenes had me hiding behind my hands at the thought of what I had just read yet I was eager to carry on as the excitement built up.
I won’t say too much about the storyline itself but I really enjoyed this particular crime that Eva and the team are working on as when it all comes together with the why’s, it’s something I have never read of in a crime book before so gives this book a particular edge to other’s in it’s genre. There’s also so much more I want to see from Eva especially. We get to know a bit about her but think there is still lots to come from her character and discover.
20/20 is actually a great title for this story. Usually the first book in a series can get weighed down with getting to know the characters but there is no fear of that with this one. We are thrown right into the deep end and the pacing was off the scale as there is never a dull moment with Eva finding herself in the trickiest of situations to say the least. So many heart stopping moments that had me fear for not only the victims but Eva and her team also. A thrilling read that doesn’t let go until the very last page!
My thanks to Hera Books and NetGalley for a readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
