About The Book
A brutal killer with a vicious calling card targets the older males in Nottingham. Are they connected or are the murders simply random attacks?
That is the question Detective Inspector Hannah Robbins and her team must investigate as they hunt down the monster on their streets.
But Hannah has just returned to work after a terrifying ordeal, and is still distressed as snapshots of the trauma plague her every waking moment.
Across town Amelia Vaughn, a senior Crown prosecutor, questions herself when a sensitive police file lands on her desk. However, things begin to look more sinister closer to home.
As the two professionals struggle to hold it together the murders become more frequent. The two women are on a collision course that no one could see coming. Can they each do what it takes to bring the killer to justice or will personal attachments result in another loss of life?
With thanks to the author for the copy received. Rebecca Bradley’s Hannah Robbins series is one of the few that I have read every book from. I like the main character but also her team of people. The respect and loyalty they have for each other is evident with the way they welcome her back after the events that occurred in the previous book. But Hannah struggles to accept the help or admit that she is struggling with the pain. She finds it easier to push friends away, despite feeling guilty and rely on pain relief.
Whilst I enjoyed catching up with Hannah, I loved the other narrative. Amelia has serious concerns about her husband and when she attempts to find out what is wrong she is unprepared for what she discovers. When she makes contact with Hannah’s team her world falls apart. I can’t remember reading anything like this before, where you see the story develop from somebody who is connected to a crime but not as a perpetrator.
There is huge potential for this series to carry on, this ending in particular, left a lot of possibilities for further storylines. I have a feeling Hannah has some explaining to do with the investigation in this book and with what Aaron discovers at the end. What I would love to see in the future is for Hannah to find happiness, because at times she seems very lonely, and for a book to focus on one of the other characters. My choice would be from Aaron or Pasha.
