What They Say:
Colourful, plastic boats were scattered in puddles on the floor. In the bathtub lay Linda Upton, fully-clothed, lips a shade of blue, and bloodshot eyes wide open.
When a young mother is found drowned in the bath, clutching a receipt saying ‘all debts paid’, Detective Robyn Carter knows it’s just the beginning of a harrowing case. She recognises the signs of a serial killer, and a second victim with a receipt confirms her worst fears.
There are no witnesses. The victims had no debts. With the body count rising and the local press whipping the public into a frenzy, Robyn is under pressure to solve the crime in record time. But her team can’t find a link between the victims, and the cracks are starting to show.
Just when her leads have dried up, Robyn discovers photographs in two of the victims’ houses, which she thinks could unlock the case. But as she hones in on the killer’s shocking motive, one of her own is put in terrible danger.
Can Robyn stop the most twisted killer of her career before it’s too late?
What I Say:
I don't normally read police procedural or detective books but I'm so glad I've made an exception for this series!
DI Robyn Carter is an amazing character! She's so strong and determined while still being a normal woman. She's clever and caring and I really like her. The supporting characters are great too. Anna and Mitz are particularly awesome!
I had no idea what the outcome would be right until the end. I was left guessing and trying to figure it out and I loved that! This wasn't a mystery that I'd picked apart easily, it was twisty-turny and very gripping! I loved it!!
I'm really looking forward to more from this series. 10/10
