The Blurb

Let the games begin.

A man is found buried in a secluded wood on the outskirts of London. Naked, beaten and bruised; forensics also show that he hasn't eaten in the 24 hours before his murder. To DCI Antonia Hawkins it looks like a vicious, targeted attack.

The hunt is on.

But as more bodies are unearthed in the same state, Hawkins struggles to find a pattern in the seemingly random killings as the body count continues to climb.

But who is the hunter?

unique kind of serial killer. One that is playing a twisted game. And so far the killer is one winning . . .

My Thoughts

Oh Look its another brilliant messed up Detective with a love of cars at loggerheads with their superiors about something that happened in their past, trying to hunt a serial killer whilst balancing their work, family, love life and past problems.

I adore reading Crime/Thriller novels. I have read hundreds of them and unfortunately this is one that I have read many times before. Its not a bad book by a long shot and I can imagine loads of people will adore it, just not me.

If you read a lot of this genre then the plot is quickly worked out and becomes a drawn out wait to confirm your theory was right. The twists were sign posted and totally expected for me and lets be honest, there wasn't much detecting to catch the Killer. It was given to them on a plate really.

I would much rather have read about the relationship between Rupert and Ash than Antonias sisters failing marriage. It lent nothing to the plot.

Not my cup of tea at all.
