To Control Them by M.A. Comley @ComleyMel

Book Description:

From NY Times and USA Today bestselling author M A Comley, author or the successful Justice series, who has sold over 4 million copies worldwide.

An evil urge… results in death.

DI Sam Cobbs is summoned by Pathologist, Des Markham to attend a perplexing murder where the victim’s body has been moved from the original crime scene. Why?

When a second body is found in similar circumstances, it is clear Sam and her team have a killer with a menacing agenda on their patch.

Led down a dangerous path, can Sam capture the killer before yet another body is discovered?

My Thoughts:

I love how the author sets the scene for each of these books. You just know that things are never going to end well for the character that we first get to meet at the start. It had me on edge right from the beginning as I was jumping to conclusions as to what was going to happen to them only to have it totally wrong.

Even though the reader gets to see the killer in action, things aren’t clear as to why they are killing their victims. It’s as much as baffle to the reader as it is to Sam and her team. Sam and Bob are the ones doing the house to house calls as well as attending the crime scenes whilst the others are back at the office doing the behind the scene work. What I love is how this story shows how solving crimes is very much a team effort. It’s the skilled work of all involved, which can involve mundane tasks which can lead to vital information.

The author touches on the topic of suicide and I have to applaud the author for bringing up when people say that when someone takes their own life that it is the easy way out. This is so not true and someone has to be in a very hard and bad place to get to that stage and it is a saying that I really don’t like and I liked that this was pulled up by one of the characters.

To Control Them was a dark and disturbing read. With how this books ends, I am very eager to get to the next book of which it may not be for the reasons why you would think it would be but you will understand once you have read it for yourself. It had me go through an array of emotions, mainly horror an anger at what happens to the victims but also emotion for the families that are left behind. Another rivetingly great read in the series.

My thanks to the author for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
